“Pioneer” Belts in the IPF

This might be interesting for all the IPF haters and Pioneer Belts fans on here.

I was on Instagram and saw this post from Pioneer.


So it looks like Pioneer has their belt or at least their patented design selling via another company that has paid for IPF approval. I dunno how much Pioneer make off this but it’s probably good business without having to pay the outrageous IPF approval fees.

Also seen A7 posting that they are about to come out with something similar to Iron Tanks


Sounds like a smart way to get around the IPF fees to me and I guess all companies and Powerlifting benefits from the business.

I’ll be waiting for a sale on Iron Tanks down here in Australia to treat myself to a “Pioneer” Belt
