    I am looking t getting a Titan Super Centurion Squat suit and a Fury Bench Shirt. I don't see any Single Ply Deadlifts suits by Titan. I have heard of people pulling in the Super Centurion Squat suit.

    Here is my question. What is the learning curve like?
    How to break theses bad boys in?

    Titan makes the Velocity Deadlift Suit.

    Do you Pull Sumo or Conv...? The learning curve is getting to the bar. Once you can handle that it's not to bad. I pull in an Metal V-Squatter. I also have a Titan Super Centurion Squat Suit W/S... I have tried it forwards and backwards. I just don't get as much out of it as my Metal V-Squatter. The Velocity Deadlift Suit is a good suit.

    I pull conventional. I plan to mess with sumo in my offseason which starts after my meet in February. I have pulled over 400 sumo just messing around during warmups. I have been looking at the Super Centurion. I squat regular. Not wide at all. Slightly wider than shoulder width.

    Thank you for responding @Ramrod.

    I have decided to give single ply a run as well. It's been two years since my last meet and I keep waiting till my shoulder feels good benching, but it never happens. Been benching low 4's for 6 years, but when I threw a cheap Blast shirt on all felt well even though I had no clue and couldn't get 405 to touch. But, there is a good crew including Rich n Christina McDowell just a few hours away so I am planning a trip down there before purchasing anything else. He said a few guys squat there as well. Not sure if any are single ply guys but I suspect they all know more than yours truly.

    Once I'm done with school and can really focus on my lifting like I want... than I'm thinking about switching to single ply. My body could use the extra support from some gear.

    Awesome, I think I'm gonna go the same way. I was looking at sizing and from what I can tell my shirt size would be ideal for learning and lifting large has a starter kit for a pretty good deal as ebay has crap for my size in anything used. But $280 for a shirt, suit and wraps aint bad. http://www.liftinglarge.com/1-Ply-Equipped-Powerlifting-Starter-Kit

    But, I'm still looking.

    Nah, I'm in Kansas City, so it's right under 3hrs one way. They are great people. I just judged one of their meets a few weeks ago and set up an open date to go down. And hell I'd like to do more judging as well

    Well, I suspect like me age has taken it's toll. I actually think I have the patience these days it takes to learn and get it right. I am tired of just starting to feel good then tweaking something only to have to back off and start over again.
