ironmaster lottery

Has anyone participated in this and what should I expect? I am hoping to either purchase the Ironmaster 45 and an addon kit or heavy handle kit, or the regular Ironmaster 75 kit with stand. Is it structured as a cart option and then it assigns a lottery number?

Early last year I ordered an R-3 rack and some accessories from Rogue. The Rack came in early summer but the safety straps were backordered.

Barbell for home gym, what to get?

I've sold my old equipment today, a 5'5" barbell and bench. I did some sumo deadlifts with the bar, but never enjoyed it, partly due to always needing to keep and eye on my toes, so the weights don't squash them.
