Feb 10, 2017 i have a elitefts lever belt that I got a few years ago and generally like. However, I am on my fourth buckle because they snap every four to six months. This is extremely frustrating. I have preferred levers because I train alone and it's easier to get the snugness that I like. Clearly this is an issue that weakens the metal. I'm now considering switching to a prong because it will save money over time. Interested to hear from those that prefer the prong and why.
