Well not to make matters worse but there is also something called a keystone deadlift and hardcore people claim this is also different but I am unsure of the subtle differences.

Found this: Dr. Squat on Keystone deadlifts

I believe that I've developed a better way. With barbell in hand,
>poke both your butt and belly outward. In this position, you look kinda
>like one of the "Keystone Cops" you see in the 1920s movies. This
>variation of stiff legged deadlifts has thus become known as "Keystone
>Deadlifts."
> This seemingly strange position will prestretch your hamstrings
>because of the forward tilt of your pelvis the position entails. Then,
>while maintaining this position, slowly lower the barbell to around your
>knees, keeping the bar close to your legs during the descent and ascent.
> You must NOT go more than an inch or two below your knees. By the
>time you reach your (slightly unlocked) knees, your hip joints have
>fully flexed, and further lowering of the bar is accomplished ONLY
>through hyperflexion of your spine -- a NO-NO!
> You will feel a decided "burn" in your hams and glutes when keystones>are done correctly. You should feel virtually no discomfort or stress in
your lower back. If you do, experiment with the movement until you feel
no discomfort at all.

I tried that unweighted. It feels kind of nice in the hamstrings. It gets a stretch real easy. I'll have to try it out more on leg day. It seems to transfer just a little more of the load to the hamstrings, which could be a very good thing.

I think the keystone deadlift might be the best hamstring exercise yet. You can really feel it. That position helps keep your back straight even when going heavy too.
