    Saw this pop up. EXP expansion is in stock at Amazon with free shipping. No idea if it's a good price but figured people here might be able to use it.

    Did anyone ever order anything from gymstogo.com?

    It appears to have the previous model Powerblock U125 home rack stand in stock for $199 (shipping to New England from Florida is $50 not including tax) expensive, but it is an option though if someone were to go that route and would work with the current Pro EXPs.

    Update: I managed to find a Stage 3 70-90 lb add on kit for the Pro EXPs if all goes according to plan tomorrow and will keep posted on it.

    I’ve had both.

    1. Ironmasters for feel and durability

    2. Powerblocks for speed of switching weights

    If speed isn’t that important to u, ironmasters r a no brainer. People like powerblocks for lighter weights to do drop sets or add a little weight quickly.

    I was able to order the IronMaster 75lb with the 120lb add-on kit just the other day. Waiting for it to ship. Once it does, I'm listing my full set of hex dumbbells (5-100). Thinking about getting the PowerBlock 5-50lb set for lighter weight stuff. I've had PBs 5-85lb set before and they were fine for everything except dumbbell pullovers and heavy overhead dumbbell extensions. For me it's a space issue to not keep the full set. Plus one of my 90s has a slightly bent handle and I'd need to buy 110s and 120s. The cost now days for those would close to the IMs. I have 5-50 in 5lb increments and 60-100 in 10lb increments. I use PlateMates to hit the 5s.

    I just got back from the fitness equipment store in my area and purchased the Stage 3 Pro EXP 70-90 lb add on kit to complete my PB set, they've been sold out everywhere, but the store had the individual expansions in stock (also dodged the shipping fee which is always nice too).

    dickus, awesome that you scored the IM 120 lb add on kit when they were in stock! That's next up on my list to add to my standard set of IMs and I'll probably try to get the 165 lb add on at some point and possibly the heavy handle kit to bring them to 180 lbs (I'm looking to complete my adjustable DB sets in bits and pieces at a time).

    This portion of the home gym pieces are the best/more tolerable part due to each kit being compact to bring where they have to go and take up minimal space.

    Awesome, thanks for the tip Deep. I just called my local store and they had a set of the 70-90 Expansion sitting around as well. Picking them up tomorrow morning.
