Cheap Ivanko 1.25lb plates!

For anyone interested in microloading (to a degree), this is a steal of a deal. I was not that interested in the Iron Woody and similar microplates, and just wanted a pair of simple 1.25lb plates for 2.5lb total BB increases, and this is the ticket. I ordered mine yesterday and was told they had plenty more, so I thought I'd share the info. I will post up a review when I receive the plates.

1.25lb (Part# OMC-1.25) plates are $6/pr plus shipping. Tough to beat, to say the least. Note that they might have scratches on them, so if you care about those things...yeah.

Re: Cheap Ivanko 1.25lb plates!

WTF is up with those gold plated 3lb dumbells?

Is that like the gift for the person who has everything, but can't pick any of it up?

I need some other plates - 2.5's and 5s

They seem like a good deal as well?

To me, they do. And they're a quality brand, as opposed to what you're likely to find at the local sporting goods store. but it's your call. I will say that they shipped 10 1.25lbers for me at the same rate as shipping 2, so ordering a few 2.5's and 5's might be a good idea if they can do something similar.

I did my entire transaction via email. It took a couple hours for the first response and was pretty quick after that.
