    hi mate, i have a 10 or 11, i cant remember, i have heard alot of people complaining about the stiffness of a 13mm belt when they first get it and it taking ages to bed in, to be honest, i cant see there being a noticeable difference in the support given by the belt from 2mm extra thickness, apart from the uncomfortableness of the 13mm belt

    think i'll go down the 10mm route then, that size should be fine for what i use it for. 13mm does sound too thick.

    cheers for the feedback

    10mm and its just right, the material is pretty stiff anyway, the thicker belts can dig in too much and I doubt they offer anymore real support.

    I never found my new inzer 13mm lever belt a problem. Sure it dug in a bit, but not to the point where it bothered me unduely.
