    No idea. I'd judge the bar on its own merits. If you want to take the sleeves off, I'd be interested in seeing more photos.

    Intek is located in Southern IL so it's not too far away. Fixed barbell sets are a difficult sell on Craigslist. It's not something most home gym owners need.

    ^^ Those appear to be in super condition.

    Sorry, I had urethane on the brain from another thread. I wouldn't bother messing with any type of patch. It won't last and it's not worth the time or money. Just use them as is and unload them on...

    Are they really urethane or are they rubber? They're falling apart and they look like dried out rubber. Were they previously stored on angle iron racks? That would explain the torn up rubber.

    Iirc, Ivan say "ASTM Grade" but didn't specify. I'm not an expert but I looked it up and class 20 was the lowest ASTM grade listed so I assumed it was grade 20 or better. ...

    RE the inserts... I would also prefer plates without inserts. Whether or not they'd come loose like they sometimes do on some bumpers would depend on the design and construction. I haven't looked...

    I own or owned urethane plates from Ivanko, Intek and Iron Grip. The Ivankos have the thickest and nicest urethane coating. The others are nice also but I did notice that the urethane on the Iron...

    The Ivanko plates in your photos are rubber, not urethane. I don't believe that you've seen cracked urethane Ivanko plates. Maybe you are confusing rubber and urethane. Or maybe I'm not...

    The photos aren't very good. :( Did the sleeve slide away from the end and toward the middle of the bar? I didn't expect that! Weird. Often they're turned down on the ends so the sleeve can't...

    It is missing a set screw collar, not a pinned collar. Although some high quality bars have set screw collars (e.g some of the old York bars), there are also some low quality bars with set screw...

    Is it missing from both ends?? You could buy a regular "split shaft collar" as a replacement. The inside diameter would need to match the diameter of the bar.... probably around 28-32mm. Measure...
