    The original design of the Strength Co plates was pretty bad, but what they ended up with looks a lot nicer. The cost is prohibitive for what they are, though, COVID or not. I'm still tempted to buy...

    I don't think you're alone. It's like they couldn't decide if they wanted a rougher "vintage" look or a sharp modern machined look like their Arnold plates, so they compromised something that looks...

    Not sure who owns their designs. I had a ProStar FID bench that was very nice and extremely heavy duty, just too massive for my needs. I haven't seen their stuff posted a lot here, but it's been...

    I read it as OP buying a new existing house, not building one, but maybe I'm wrong. Around me bulkhead-type basement access is really uncommon on new builds. If people have an exterior access to the...

    I have my Mechs plus I have some Titan T3 ones that I put a smaller stop bolt on. The Mech ones have ball park 6.5" of travel with the stop bolt in the hole closest to the front of the monolift. My...

    That's how I feel about vintage stuff these days, but does York even sell the Legacy dumbbells anymore? They aren't listed on their site anymore, though the Legacy iron plates are.

    Full rack. No experience with the half rack other than seeing them in the showroom.

    It's really good at making the uprights 1/16" too wide to fit my Mech monolifts ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    2" spacing on a drop-in rack is pretty awesome, too.

    I've wanted to try a fat curl bar, but have not gotten my hands on one. Yours is the BWTG, right? I think the consensus here was that the Titan one didn't look very good, but I don't know if I've...

    I took Urban off my Christmas Card list before crying myself to sleep last night. I crossed his name out with a Sharpie, so I don't know if I can undo that, but I'll try.

    I'm probably going to order the Titan spotter arms and j-hooks for my Titan rack, so I guess I'll find out. I'm like 95% sure the Titan j-cups I ordered were in a box labled made in China, but that...

    Stop being reasonable, Richard! We need hard and fast rules!




    That was the longest "Good luck with your lifting goals in 2020" reply I've ever received, so there's that.

    Take a breath, my man. I'm not taking this personally and you shouldn't be either. I respect your opinion even if I disagree with it. You posit that 28mm is too thin for a curl bar while 30mm is...

    Unless they updated it for the Titan G2 (they look identical to the previous generation arms I had) it's ~24" of coverage and 28" is the total length. I think they may now also be imported and not...

    I'd say the overwhelming majority of "anyone" who routinely use a curl bar have never thought much about the shaft diameter if they're using a 27-30mm bar, and not many more people think about the...

    I really wish Dynamic would bring back the Gladiator line in full. They gave me hope when they brought back a 2x3 squat stand, but they don't offer a plate storage tier to make it into a true half...
