I'm sumo as well. I started off with convention but i tried out sumo and its felt much more natural. I felt I could keep better posture and technique during the lift. Its also crazy how much more i can sumo than conventional.

I'm going back to sumo. I switched back to conventional for a couple months and I felt that I could never keep my back aligned as well in the conventional stance. Although I can pull nearly the same amount in either stance, it feels like my back rounds out more over 90% load.
