    Thanks. I'm not trying to be a company man or anything, and I get plenty frustrated. I was ready to skip my hand off at Worlds due to the spotter situation. So I have been there done that.

    I also see partially informed ideas thrown out from time to time. And I think more info tends to help any discussion.

    this post from Metal would seem to corroborate that, and also explain why the IPF approved stuff is so much more expensive.

    At least they sound apologetic bout it

    I kinda wish they could increase the Approval Fees so we could get more Contest Coverage.

    Good for them! And haha on my gf who got her new $225 Wahlander's belt in the mail a couple of days ago, that she bought only because her BB belt was removed from the list.

    I hope the IPF didn't have to extort thousands of dollars out of Dean just to get him back on the approved list.

    I like that phrasing, like it's something forced on the IPF...

    Just ordered my 2nd belt from these guys. This one a 3" belt for deadlifts. In an instant gratification world...the wait sucks. But well worth it for the quality.
