I bench 265lbs but only deadlift 355lbs. It seems to me that my deadlift is very weak compared to my bench. I understand that things like this are bound to happen to beginners such as myself, but I wonder what the most out of proportion numbers you've seen in a real competition are (for a non super heavy weight, especially). Like if somebody out there has a 400lb bench and a 355lb deadlift or something.
I'm also pretty curious how gear would play into this.
