Currently on sale for $199.98 and the $20 off $100 site wide discount is automatically applying in cart. $20 off is good through Oct 9, 2017.

There is also a 10% discount for signing up for newsletter but have not received code yet to try to stack it so YMMV.

This is a great starter set. Bar will need to be replaced at some point (only holds 300lb) but can serve as a beater bar once you do that (or flip it when new for $40 or so).

OP here. I've had this set for 6 months or so and will be buying a second this weekend.

They serve their purpose well, which is to be heavy. They are not prettiest set but they function well. I have one or two small chips in finish but nothing that affects performance. As someone else mentioned the grip handles are great, makes it really easy to load.

I eventually upgraded the bar to a CAP OB-86B and use the one from this set in my T-Bar row platform.

Only real downside is the diameter is 15 5/8" on the 45s so for DL, etc you will be at a 1" deficit. Far from the end of the world. I recently got a set of Diamond Pro Bumper Plates from Walmart.com (160lbs for $155) as well as an extra pair of the 45s ($49 each) that I use for floor lifts - these are fantastic deal if you can catch them in stock.

That's a lot of weight for a pretty good price. Anyone have any input on these? If they aren't going to hit the ground, I don't see how these can be bad. Weight is weight. I don't know if maybe they cheap easily or something.

I have this set. I think they're great. The bar is better than some but has a pretty low Max.

I have 2 sets of these. I love the handles. I would buy again if I actually needed more weight. I think I paid about the same price. This is a good deal.

good price if you need weights. i think best prices on these cheap iron weights around $150. pretty sure you can sell this used for $180 on craigslist so not a lot of downside.

How do these compare to the Weider deal? Is the Weider bar better quality? I am in need of some more weights and a bar for landmine work.

Thank you kindly.

i have this exact set. some reviewers mentioned having to shave out the inside of the center holes so the plates would fit onto the bar better. Maybe I got lucky but I didn't have to do anything to mine. Took them out of the box & they were good to go.

You'll have a hard time finding a better bang for your buck. Plus I liked that these were grip plates so I can hold them a little easier when doing other movements & exercises.

I also tried signing up for their 10% code and I'm pretty sure it worked... but they didn't email me the code until like 24-48 hours after I signed up. I got impatient & ordered the set without the code then tried the code afterwards just for curiosity.

TL;DR: order the set & get dem gainzzzz!

serves its purpose because I don't lift a lot. The hole on one of the plates were not correct and had to go back in store to get it swapped because the inner diameter was too small for the bar.
Forgot to state I paid 200 plus tsx fee years ago for this
