Squat went from 275 to 305 today. Pretty stoked but should have coped a belt...Gonna cop a belt. What models you guys recommend?

Yeah, i was squating 250 for about 6 reps and didn't turn my knee at all. I think when I was hitting 305, I was already fatigued...Maybe it has something to do with that...I'v decided to refrain from doing any 1RM until I get stronger. Also, I just coped this. Any one has any experiences with this belt?
There are a few good articles out there on it. Essentially, it enhances the valsalva maneuver. It provides a surface for your abdomen and lower back to "press out" against, providing greater support and rigidity.
A lot of weightlifters use belts, and many don't, so I don't see belts having some sort of intrinsic benefit. If it works for you then it's probably a good move, if not then go without. For some reason I dislike using a belt, I mean I purchased one but ended up selling it like a month after that. Cleaning with the thing just felt so fucking weird.
Slightly russled. A friend of mine has an internship greenhill. He didn't even apply or interview for it, but his aunt works there and got him one. He applied same as me for all the other banks but he's not as good a candidate as me so he never got past first round, but now through nepatism he has arguably as good an internship as me. His aunt literally just called him up asking if he wanted to work. Based on the fact there was no structured employment process I doubt there's a chance of a FT offer, but he'll still have greenhill on his cv next year when he applies.
Unfortunately, who you know is often exceedingly more important than what you know.
