    The talk here mostly revolved around Ivanko's Olympic weights, specifically their 'Revolvers' which were once considered the pinnacle of Olympic weights (at least here). My experiences with Ivanko...

    No, the bar was fine overall and it didn't appear bent. I've probably had 15-20 bars delivered over the years and it's a mixed bag on how they will arrive, 50/50 on whether the tube arrives dinged up...

    Oh I see Rogue only uses bolts, that definitely looks like a PITA. Titan has side pins similar to what you would see with flip-down safeties, I assumed they must have copied that from someone else...

    The Bells of Steel and Edge units incorporate bands as well, but the ratio is definitely better with the Titan unit because the weight is farther out and closer to your center of gravity. Never used...

    I will never buy one because of this alone. He seems like a snake-oil salesman and the 'Science' claims about it's superior effectiveness are kind of embarrassing. Not to knock the machine...

    Watch Dick's Sporting Goods, there are three stores within a 60-90 minute drive of me that have the 300lb Fitness Gear sets going for $249. Flipping the bar makes it even cheaper....
