Thought a few here might be interested in a hack to get a Pioneer belt a little cheaper. I just purchased the 13 mm pioneer cut (staggered holes) off of EliteFTS.
Unfortunately, I was unable to place the order on cyber Monday (out of stock, and they would not let me order it over the phone). Would have been 15% off, plus free shipping, and a free pair of straps and a pair of wrist wraps.
However, the belt was still 10% off with free shipping.
The kicker is the same belt (thickness, finish, and cut) is $170 on Pioneer’s website before shipping and tax. I paid $136 for it after tax. It does have a stamped EliteFTS logo on it, but essentially it is the same belt.
So for anyone looking to upgrade to a premium belt, now may be a good time.
