Default Ordering a new belt, but I have some questions

Hey guys.
I am going to order a 10mm Inzer forever belt.
I have a few questions before I place my order.
1.)When determining what size I need, I'm assuming I measure around my stomach where I actually will wear my belt, is this correct?
2.) Should I go single or double prong? What are the pros and cons?
3.) 10mm or 13mm? Again Pros and Cons?

As of now I plan on going 10mm single prong, but I just want to make sure this would best suit my needs.

Also, does anyone have an Inzer discount code?

Usually the size around you waist when you measure it (not jean size) is the middle prong hole, usually. Also factor in if you plan on losing weight or gaining weight. You can always put holes in a bigger belt to make it fit, but you can't make a smaller belt bigger so that is always something to think about.

Double prongs suck. They are hard to put on, harder to take off, and the thicker the belt the worse it is. Waste of energy with not real noticeable benefits I would go single prong.

10mm for general purposes, 13mm if your really planning on breaking it in or heaving some heavy weight.

As for discount codes,hmm I don't know any for inzer, your best bet maybe to contact someone sponsored by them. Also try checking a few sites that sell inzer gear to make sure your getting the best deal and it never hurts to call a retailer and find out if they are really offering you the best deal out there.

I use a Toro lever belt from Titan. I think lever belts are much easier to get on and off once you get it set right. Like Bodybygamma said, two prongs are a pain in the ass.

I have the 10 mm inzer lever belt and love it. Definately recomended... you dont take your belt on and off, you just unsnapp it and let it hang out til you're ready, then you snap it back. It holds like a champ too... its kind of aggravating when you drop 15 lb and have to adjust it with a screw driver, but you're talking 5 minutes and you're golden again. I have no experience with the 13 mm, but dont see where it would help any more. The 10 mm is a brute.

DONT get the 2 prong belt!!! Its a serious pain!!! Lol.

Thanks for the feedback and advice guys! I just placed my order. I went with the 10mm single prong. After reading what you guys wrote I seriously thought about getting a lever belt, but I just wanted to go with something I could adjust on the fly if needed. Thanks again.

Hope you didn't order straight from inzer!!!! They are horrible when it comes to customer service. Early into my lifting I only used inzer stuff (didn't know anything else existed really) and they NEVER got an order right. Hopefully with it just being a belt they will get it out and to you correctly!

Yes measure around the stomach.

I have a 13mm belt and wish I'd gone 10mm.

Single prong is way easier to get on and done up.

I hope so! The suit I sent Steve is one that the screwed up on haha. I think belts would be OK, it was more about gear sizing.
