    Not so much bc by pulling the slack out, you have a higher starting position and a greater mehanical advantage.

    My first meet was the first time I used a dl bar. My old gym didn't have one.

    My 3rd attempt was a 30lb pr made possible by the dl bar. It was only 530 but it felt like a rack pull with all the whip.

    Also depends on the weight. If you're pulling 500, 600 the bar isn't going to whip that much. If you're pulling 700, 800 it matters a lot more.

    I would always train with a stiff bar during the off season for volume work. For doubles and triples I would use a DL bar.

    Also, if you're peaked in strength and going for a 5 lb PR, it may throw you off if you've been training with a DL bar. Which isn't a reason to use a stiff bar all the time, it's just the feds responsibility to have the proper equipment.
