    This was my experience with the 6' Hampton bar I had, as well. Gritty, poorly rotating sleeves, inconsistent knurling, and the grinding/polishing they did prior to plating left the surface visibly...

    Technique plates and an aluminum training bar can get you all the way down to about 20 lbs (total) and still have the bar at the correct height for deadlifts.

    The Craigslist Dreamer is alive and well, but now he/she is a buyer hoping to score decent equipment for less than two week's pay.

    This isn't the Misc., and an attitude like that isn't going to help get your question answered. The vast majority of folks in this forum are adults with no interest in childish bull****.

    Lmao. I can tell you've never dealt with a fraud claim. I can tell you from experience that the banks don't take it anywhere near as serious as you think. You can file a complaint with your local law...

    One of the big problems with PayPal is that they'll often refund the buyer right away, then conduct an "investigation" if the seller contests it. Once they've completed their investigation, they'll...
  • If your buyer claims it's a fraudulent purchase,...

    If your buyer claims it's a fraudulent purchase, it can be reversed. It's been fairly well documented, and a simple search will turn up several examples. There are no 100% safe e-transfers for...

    If the buyer initiates a dispute over the charges, you're screwed either way.

    The problem with e-transfers is they can be reversed. Their financial institution refunds their payment almost instantly, and you're out the money and the item. My son has been dealing with PayPal...

    You can tell that the folks driving up the prices have no idea about the quality difference between the garbage Walmart crap and quality equipment. The prices on Blowflex dumbbells and Golds Gym...

    Yes, consumables.

    Compared to nearly every other piece of equipment and/or the cost of supplements, barbells are cheap. Use them, abuse them, and don't worry about scratching/bending them or...

    Ordered some 10# plates on Tues and they showed up today. It's just luck of the draw at this point. You might get lucky and find something in stock from a retailer that ships quickly, or maybe not. ...

    Lol. We have a good 3" wide area at each end of the "rack" bar where it gets rolled side to side. My specialty bars (camber bar, football bar) are also missing paint in those spots, but more from...

    My Nebula rack has hardened steel rollers on the bar hooks and they have done a wonderful job of flattening the knurl on every bar we've placed on them.

    I'd rather punch myself in the dick with brass knuckles than use a rower. Had one for a couple years and hated it. By far, one of the most boring pieces of equipment to pass thru my hands over the...

    This.

    Even if you find one, it's not likely to be less than $500.

    Agreed.


    Didn't we go through all this BS on page #1 of this thread?

    All of my larger pieces are black with red upholstery, with the smaller pieces (spin bikes, Airdyne, dip stand, etc) being black/red or grey/black/red.

    I like the fact that it (mostly) matches...

    I'd be really surprised to see the gyns reopen anytime soon. I do expect supply to catch up with demand for new equipment within the next month or so, especially from domestic suppliers. Those...
