Default Stiff leg deads VS Good mornings

Whenever I do stiff leg Deadlifts, I feel it more in my lower back than in my hamstrings, I hardly feel anything at all in my hamstrings?
I used to do martial arts so am very flexible and was thinking this might be an issue? Even doing them on a raised platform doesn't feel any better.
Iv done good mornings in the past and felt them a lot more in my hams, would it be better for me to just switch sld for gm?
When I do them, it's only 2-4 sets of 5 reps.

I'm no expert, and don't have as much experience as the rest of the guys here.
but I like to do both, but not in the same session, for me - I feel like both keep my posterior chain balanced, when I omit either Things don't run as smoothly

like your self, I feel the straight leg dead's in my lower back, & nothing in my hamstrings

But when I do god mornings I feel the tension in my hamstrings,
so I do both.

This was helpful for me to ensure I was doing SLDL properly.

When I do SLDL's I tend to stand on an 8" platform with the load at floor height; like yourself, I'm flexible to the point of being able to stretch the wrists way beyond the toes when seated, so a little more deficit helps in things like the SLDL, for me. When I do them that way, with the back still flat, they hit the hammies pretty viciously but GMs would be the easier option and possibly safer option, given the flexibility range, plus the added no deficit required etc, so easier to set-up.

Well after reading that I don't think it's a form issue, although what I think I'm doing and what I'm actually doing could be different

The platform iv tried is only about 3 inches (only one they have) but that doesn't feel any different, I could put the weight back on the floor no problem.

Good Mornings are king for hammies between the two IMO. If you have access to them, GHRs or inverse leg curls are the absolute best though.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
