Cheapest CANADIAN retailer of Lock Jaw Pro or Rogue HG Collars?

I am looking to get a pair of Rogue HG collars (After convincing by a couple guys on the forum ), and found a place that sells them in Toronto for $54. They are willing to price match any Canadian store, and so I am wondering if anybody knows what/where the cheapest Rogue HG Collars OR Lockjaw pro collars (literally the same thing) can be found in Canada, so that I can price match and save on shipping.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Cheers, Daniel

P.S. Just for the record, I was able to find a pair for $32.95, but are located in New Mexico.

Re: Cheapest CANADIAN retailer of Lock Jaw Pro or Rogue HG Collars?

Dan, nice meeting you on the weekend. Thanks for coming out to watch!

On the issue of collars.....
Those are great collars, no question. But in the grand scheme of things they are pretty insignificant. If you're trying to amass some equipment your money could be much better spent really on anything. Spring collars are probably your best bet in terms of value and what you're actually getting out of the equipment.

I agree with Jay.

Spring clamps can be a bit of pain in the *** if you are training a group and frequently switching plates but they hold well and are cheap.

Yea Jay, it was great seeing you, thanks for sticking around for so long to chat

And the reason im asking about them is because my birthday is in less than a month . Otherwise Id just go with spring clips, but im hoping for some new equipment soon (I.e. HG's, abmat, foam roller, gymboss timer). But worst comes to worst ill end up going with spring collars anyway and just buy them myself, there only like 7-10$

hey Daniel,

I couldn't find the Rogue collars either, but I bought my Lock-Jaw collars from Treadmill Factory, here's a link:
http://www.treadmillfactory.ca/b-loc...l-collars.html (WFS)

The pricing is pretty good, even tho they are more expensive than spring collars... but you get what you pay for, and the lock-jaw collars are solid, in my opinion.

You can get them in-store if you don't want to pay shipping, i got mine at the Markham location, they had both the regular and the PRO models. plus they've got a lot of other stuff for crossfit on the sales floor.

Hope that helps,

Bill

I'd go with spring clips though.

I also would bother with the gymboss timer. If you have a laptop then this works better:
