Default Getting into gear

So I'm pretty committed to competing in powerlifting, and if I do something I prefer to go all in. I've been looking to get into entry level, single ply gear. So far I've seen a lot of good stuff on Titan, but I know getting into gear is a balancing act. I've read about guys who got into the more hardcore stuff but had trouble transitioning because of too much carryover.

I'm currently looking at the Titan F6 bench shirt and the Titan Centurion squat suit, but I'm not even close to commited to these. I'm interested in whatever will work for a beginner with gear but will also give me the most bang for my buck.

I already get almost 60lb on my bench just from a slingshot, so I'd love to see what I can get out of an actual bench shirt.

Also, would it be ok for me to deadlift in my squat suit? Just a shirt and a squat suit are already going to be a big investment for me at this point.

So, for you guys who compete in gear, what would you suggest for someone in my position?
