    I'll be your huckleberry, since no-one else has commented.

    I just picked up a Tenicor Zero belt and that's been what I've been using lately, I am somewhat mixed on it. Perhaps I just am not using a suitable gun for it but it seems too flexible for me. Can you comment whether this is more or less flexible?

    I've also been using your San Mai and Specialist belts so know how those are for reference.

    Similar question, is it more or less a 1:1 replacement for the discontinued D-Ring model, or is it less stiff? The D-Ring is about perfect stiffness for me and I'm not sure flexier would work (at least for the steel commander I insist on toting around), so I'm trying to figure out which direction to go for a spare.

    The Helix belt is much more flexible than a Specialist Pro and is a little bit more flexible than the previous D-Ring. Our general recommendation is to not get the belt if you are unsure if you need a belt that is more flexible than what you are currently using. If you want a very flexible belt then it is for you.

    What does an unstiffened belt offer?

    Many find stiffened belts to be very uncomfortable and a flexible belt performs better for AIWB/IWB despite the commonly held belief that all gun belts must be stiff.

    Just got mine and as someone who's experienced pain from stiffer belts, I really appreciate this option. Carrying my p365xl at 3:30 iwb (and spare mag) felt fine while sitting in the car and while doing lawnwork. Tested it in dry and live fire and had no issues. Going to further test it this afternoon with a long walk around the neighborhood.
