Personally, the deadlift is a competitive event. Not just an exercise. So, I wear a belt so I can lift the heaviest weight possible. That being said, I'll still go up to my first working set without one.
I just recently started learning belted lifting.
I do what Jason does, just with lighter weights than he does, lol...
IDK, I haven't had a long enough sample with the belt to compare to without, but I will say, having that belt to take a big breath and push against has stopped this nagging little back irritation I used to get.
My erectors are not weak by any means.
