For what it's worth, I felt that I could have hit about 600-610 on a trap bar deadlift. My conventional deadlift is about 565-570. So it was easier by 30-40 pounds or so.

I know nothing about the carry over to conventionals, but I will say that it didn't exactly feel like a standing leg press. It felt like a deadlift with a better mechanical advantage.
