I also picked up a 44# Mutt Bar from Mutt Fitness. This caught my eye when listed at $75. Retail is $124.50 plus $44.91 shipping and taxes (total $169.41, ouch!). I hesitated and then the price was reduced to $60. I offered $50 and picked it up Saturday morning. Typically I would not buy fixed weight barbells, but this is a good weight to mix in with biceps/triceps/lat accessory work. At any rate, near $1/pound for interesting fitness gear will always be attractive to me.
I also finally sold the 25# Yes4All weighted bar. I was pleased to get $25 for it as it runs $45 on Amazon. Again, I believe $1/pound is a fair price for most fitness equipment.
My gym build is still done, but I still want a pair of SYQQ collars, Thomson Fatbells and Iron Grip 50#. I will not buy the 50# dumbbells unless I get a great deal as I recently sold my Rep Fitness 50# pair for $140.
