Great beginner belt
When I first got this belt, the lever was very, very stiff and would get stuck on itself. The holes that the prongs would go into actually got the lever stuck and I had to spend some time with a screwdriver to actually free myself from it. The leather was also very stiff at first, but with just a bit of rolling out and some good wearing, I have broken it in quite well. The belt does not have any visible signs of wear so far other than some scuffed marks. I also throw it around a good bit and it survives. The belt sometimes does a weird thing when I pull the lever into place where the inside part buckles in and there's essentially a small reverse bench boner poking into me. It also digs into my ribs whenever I pull conventional even if I push it down. Luckily I mainly pull sumo. Other than this, I would strongly recommend this belt to anyone getting their first proper power belt.
