I think they are saying that selling kg plates by the pound strikes them as a bit funny.

I hate it when the smart jokes go right over my head.

Here my pricing off the website and comparing the CF'er offer.

Black Bumper plate in KILOS
5 kg – Black – $21.50, the CF offer is $11.00
10 kg – Black – $43.00, the CF offer is $22.00
15 kg – Black – $64.75, the CF offer is $33.00
20 kg – Black – $86.25, the CF offer is $44.00
25 kg – Black – $107.75, the CF offer is $55.00

This is one hell of a deal. And only offered to CF'ers

I was going to ask about the diameters of the plates, but the web page says they're all 17.7".

Cool, thanks!

William,

Why do you say this is not a good deal? It looks like a good deal if the shipping costs work out for you.

I emailed TheRubberMan and he quoted me about $118 shipping for 330lbs. So, that is about $450 for 330lbs of plates to my door-step.

If any CFers in Columbus, OH want to order, I'd even consider driving to TheRubberMan (KY) and splitting the cost of the transportation.

No Michael--I didn't understand Paul's joke, and thus was afraid I didn't understand how good the deal was. I am actually in the process of taking advantage of this deal. I continue to be embarassed by my failure to understand the joke.
Thanks, Bill
