    I'm looking to pick up another 300lb set w/bar. Anyone know of some good deals? I mainly want to do this as it'd be nice to have another bar. Its that or just going out and buying 2 45's and 2 35's.

    Peal - hah I'm from the good ol USA.

    Mistich - yeah my friend said he has seen some cap sets for pretty cheap. It doesn't have to be super high quality IVANKO stuff. Cap will do fine. In fact I think the set I have now is a cap set. Weight it weight.. doesn't have to be pretty just functional.

    Yeah try a used sporting goods store. You don't want to order them online because shipping will kill you.

    Around here Play It Again wants as much for the used stuff as MC Sports or Dunhams wants for the new. I keep my eyes open because I have a friend looking for a set... seems the CAP set can be had pretty easily for about $130, a nicer York set (nicer finish, wider plate lip, better bar) can be had for about $180.
