Being offered by Megan Markee in Arvada Colorado. Set of 8 standard blocks for $325. Set of 12 on the Rogue Fitness website is $699 with free shipping. 8 Blocks would cost $466 new. $325 represents 70% of retail.
These are 19" x 15.5" x 2" thick. A set of 8 would allow me to pull by elevating the barbell 8 inches. They are not as universal as a set of jerk blocks, but certainly lighter and easier to store.
They are not super practical for me. They are a very unique strength building product and owning a set would be bragging rights as much as anything. They are rarely offered in the secondary market.
UPDATE: 6/24/2022 - I could not help myself and reached out to the seller. I ended up offering $200 after finding out they were still available. She is firm on price. She was willing to come down to $300, but that would not help me much.
UPDATE: 7/18/2022 - A set of 8 came up cross-posted on Facebook/Craigslist 2 days ago (Kerstin Meyer). Being offered for $350 OBO. I made an offer of $240, but do not expect a response. Time will tell. I got the similar response of $300 is as low as I can go, which is fair.
8 Block set direct from DC Blocks is $449 and a set of Ultimate DC Blocks is $529 with very little discount for large purchases. $300 represents 66% of retail and is fair. Considering that I was willing to go $240, I will probably make a $300 offer soon.
UPDATE: 8/2/2022 - I offered Megan $260 and she still passed. I offered Kerstin $270 and we will see what happens. This is a tough purchase as I do not often perform deficit lifts or lifts from the blocks and and it is a significant price point (anything over $100 is), but seeing them in Power Lift equipped gyms and the occasional home gym has me hooked.
UPDATE: 8/3/2022 - After hem hawing and making offers to both sellers and being countered, I found a set of (10) ultimate DC blocks (with handle cut outs) for $350. These are the premiums which sell in sets of (6) for $399 and sets of (12) for $789. Needless to say, I got a great deal at 50 cents on the dollar.
