These things are bad ass and certainly pay homage to Zuver's goal of bigger and better. Do I want a pair? Yes. Would I prefer a pair of Zuver's or Arnold Classic Plates? Of course.
At $270 for the pair plus $50 shipping plus $20 tax, my delivered price is $341.81 or $3.80 per pound.
The nearest equivalent are Rogue Deep Dish plates at $165 plus $60 shipping + $17 tax, my delivered price is $242.57.
The Le Masters are absolutely worth the additional $100. Made in Southern California by a small company that I would like to do business with.
1.95 inch thick versus 1.97 inch thick for the Rogue Plates.
I may have to order a set of these. Worst case scenario, I could sell for minimum $1/pound and more likely $2/pound for a loss between $150 and $250.
I know that I will find interesting and cool workout items this year. I already have $60 earmarked for some standard plates and $140 earmarked for SYQQ collars. This is really not that much more at $340, but I would like to keep the spend under $1000 for the year. The only other item creeping up on the wish list is an "Original" Texas Power Bar at $300. Planned spend is:
