    Choosing the Right belt

    So I have been reading a lot of posts on the sticky but reading everything would be insane and I came to the conclusion that there are a few good belts I can pick from,
    from the OP I read that I need a 4” high, 10mm thick, unpadded single prong leather belt. I still don't know which belt I want to buy, I do not intend to look at the price or buy a cheap one I just want to start with the best belt I can get, I will be happy with the purchase, has the best reviews and is most used on this forum with other lifters ( so just a good belt ). I will be using it for bodybuilding and starting to use it on one of the workout programs from this forum ( Fierce 5 ) as I progress my lifts.

    These are the belts im trying to choose one from after reading posts on this forum it seemed like the best there is, but I'm not sure which one I should buy:

    SBD Belt: ( Most expensive and it's a lever belt but I can buy it if its a good one, I already got the knee sleeve and elbow sleeves and they are good )

    Pioneer:

    Titan:

    Best belt:

    Please let me know what you think and what you would choose in my position, I live in Europe so some of the belts will have some costs with shipping while the SBD belt has no shipping costs.

    Been on my radar for a while and now that I've hit my squat goal it's time for an early Christmas present.

    Ditto the above. The Pioneer Cut might as well make standard hole spacing obsolete. I'm a huge fan of lever belts, but your first (or only if you don't plan on getting more than one) good belt really should be a 4" single prong 10mm, preferably a pioneer cut.

    I've owned more belts than I can remember, sold everything besides my Pioneers, of which I currently have 13.

    Had no idea such a cut existed. Crazy good idea.

    Been running the same old school Inzer lever for over a decade. Don't see that changing but if I was in the market I'd go with the recommendation here.

    My next belt will be a Pioneer cut, it's the real deal. It's also 1 of those things that seems obvious, once someone finally has the idea, such as putting wheels on suitcases. Wish I'd thought of it!
