Econ bumpers on "blowout" @ muscledriver.com

Was reading the "where to get chalk" thread and clicked on "Blowout" items...

http://www.muscledriverusa.com/ecblbupl25pa.html

That's what I found. $69 shipped is pretty crazy cheap, right? I have 0 experience with the company or these bumpers, but wanted to put it out there for anyone who might be interested.

I think Fran is whispering "buy them" in my ear. But I must resist.

You can get an American made Hi-Temp pair from Rogue for the exact same price.
