Both. I compete in single-ply and multi-ply competitions so I have to use both. Can't use canvas in the single-ply meets.

What I look for in any suit is the stopping power and compression. I squat down slow and blast out of the whole, so I need a suit that stops me and compresses my body. This way I can get a blast out of the whole using that compression. Now, the compression can make it hard to hold your breath but who cares, blast the weight up fast and you will have time to blow out air on the way up.

For single-ply: Titan Super Centurion with Titan Centurion briefs. It has very little give in the material which helps with the compression Iím looking for.

For multi-ply: Ginny Phillips Double Thick Canvas with Metal Ace Pro briefs. That combination is like doing a standing leg press. If I wasn't able to use the canvas, I prefer the Titan Boss suit. Itís the closest to canvas that a poly suit comes.
