What's a good price for 100 pound plates?

What's a good price for 100 pound plates? I have a bead on a used pair and am wondering what to offer the guy. $50 each?

Re: What's a good price for 100 pound plates?

that's not a bad price. $0.50/lb is reasonable. Though, it's pretty easy to get weight at less than that at a used sporting goods store depending on the quality/brand/condition.

Just a word of advice in general, he is selling the plates so let him state the price. THere is a 50% chance that he will offer less then your offer.

This goes along with another axiom, if you are the seller and have already listed your price...some knucklehead will invariably ask "how low can you go?" Your answer is, "umm, i gave a price already, I'm not gonna negotiate with myself, here's my original asking price, what's your counteroffer?"

Re: What's a good price for 100 pound plates?

100 pounders can be a tough call. Depending on where you live, they can be hard to find. At the same time, they if you don't find the right person they can be hard to sell. Like said above, try to get him to suggest a price first. Also, if you really want them, and they are hard to find in your area, consider paying a bit more if need be. They can be hard to find, and shipping is KILLER on them...
