Re: Review of Get Rx'd Equipment

I realize my post above is unclear:

It is Get Rx'd that I think has some explaining to do.

Abmat is a superior company.

Abmat is an overpriced piece of foam. $30 is ridiculous. Other companies should be able to modify the design and sell it for less.

Gas and/or PVC Pipe?

They are actually very different. We have both rogues and get rx'd. I like rogues better. The get rx'd is much thicker, also the shape isn't the same. I betting just enough to get around the patent.

Re: Review of Get Rx'd Equipment

I suppose getRX and Rogue and Again Faster, etc should all also be ashamed for producing their own quality barbells and selling them for discounted prices?

Maybe they shouldnt have the name be so close, but other than that...welcome to market competition.

Re: Review of Get Rx'd Equipment

Thanks for all the support guys!

Wanted to wait for us to get a few things straightened out before responding to this.

Our first model IS a bit different than Abmat's.

Our newest model is A LOT different: http://www.getrxd.net/index.php/gymn...portpad-1.html (WFS)

For those of you who have one already, give us some feedback when you can!

Re: Review of Get Rx'd Equipment

Considering picking up the womens bar from get rx'd mostly due to price, any of the older posters (or quiet lurkers) want to add additional reviews to put my mind at ease? I REALLY wish I was local and could just pick it up, 60% of the cost in shipping makes me sad.

We currently have 3 of the women's bars and they are excellent! The spin and knurling are top notch, and women fight over them for cleans and snatches. They have held up fine when loaded up to 175 pounds, but I would not use them for heavy deadlifts or squats.

Re: Review of Get Rx'd Equipment

Our gym got 2 of these, nice, grippy knurling, however we weighed them and they are both around 31 lbs. rather than the 33 lbs. that 15kg bars should weigh.
