    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?

    I didn't participate in that one. I participated in one of their earlier versions where they had a waiting room and you were assigned a number. It was a joke, people found out ways to bypass it. I don't expect this to work any better. Their website is a joke and ordering system is antiquated. I wouldn't expect this to go any better, good luck. The only reason I got my IM dumbbells with 120lb add-on was I complained loudly enough that I was a pre-covid customer and should have been given some consideration. They gave me a link to "secret stock" of dumbbells as they called it and I was able to place my order. I've been buying other stuff as it comes available just by checking it daily. I got the IM2000 and several accessories recently. I hope you get the dumbbells, you'll really like them. They make solid products and kudos to them for not raising their prices during this time.

    They have increased prices on the Super Bench and Pro versions, each went up $30 since COVID.

    I'm talking street prices. The IM2000 pre-covid was $1399 but "on sale" for less than that. Now they removed the "on sale" price. I'm sure they could ask a whole lot more and get it. Someone was having an interesting conversation thread on here about if the manufacturers would raise their prices then it could stop the inflated flipping prices of new equipment. Not sure how I feel about that. I have been buying nothing but new equipment from manufacturers for the first time in 20 years since if I'm patient, I'm getting new equipment for less than used in the present market. Luckily I had a fully stocked home gym pre-covid, I'm now just getting things I want. It's nice to not be in a need place like many new home gym owners are. I'd hate to start a home gym in this market.

    I guess I will just try my luck tomorrow and see what happens. Otherwise keep my eyes out. I would really like to find a Hoist 75 kit but those are really rare.

    I'll probably grab another set of those in the future, but they are definitely getting harder and harder to find. Wish someone would pick up that design and run with it, would buy those over the current model IM's all day long.

    There was a much older design Iron Master 80 Quik-Change (Hoist style) set a few hours drive from me for $450ish but I wasn't thrilled on its lack of 2.5 lb plates and the 6 hour drive round trip. All the plates included were 5 lb. Guess I could have bought that and used some cap 2.5 pancakes. The overall quality and finish on it and its included stand were inferior to the modern design and from the hoists from what I could tell.

    A mint Hoist 45 for around $450 with stand about 2 hour round trip away, but I really want to go up to ~75lb. I guess I could have done the Hoist and then bought a heavy handle kit to take it to 60 as I think it would fit, but I wasn't positive. It was tempting.

    I don't use ultra heavy dumbbells anymore because I can't flat bench, my t-spine isn't happy with the pressure on it, I just use incline and shoulder press. So really a 75 lb kit would be ideal for me. The most I ever did flat bench was 105s and that was years before I had surgery in my thoracic spinal cord.

    You're right, it looks like they've upped the prices on several things. The IM dumbbells are up at around $50 from when I bought them and the add-on kit is more expensive too. I can't blame them, they can't keep them in stock.

    Honestly, for the Pro version I think the price increase is justified. The padding has improved, it comes standard with wheels now, and the black powder coat is nicer that the regular shiny frame IMO. Also, since the Pro version is now 17" they have it angled when using the leg extension, which makes hamstring curls feel better than when it was flat. All around excellent changes from Ironmaster.

    Ironmaster Super Bench Pro is "Back In Stock" hurry and nab one! I just quickly put my order through.

    Edit: Made a separate order for the crunch/decline attachment as well, luckily there's no extra shipping charge putting in another order since shipping was free on both orders (obviously there's a price bump so there's that, but seeing as how the bench is highly regarded I suppose it's justifiable).

    Thanks and awesome! Their 5-75 lb set is great! I want to eventually get the 120 lb add-on kit and 165 lb kit to complete my sets.

    It's a great bench and I love the decline attachment. I've been comfortably doing decline presses now for the first time in years.

    Excellent to hear that, the decline feature is one of the main reasons I decided to get the bench along with the many angles of adjustments to use with the leverage station, DBs and cables.

    Did you get the leg curl/extension attachment, or any other attachments for it?
