Upon arriving, the seller had (4) ROC-MO 50#, (4) ROC-MO 25#, (1) York 25# standard, (4) York Milled 25# and (2) York Milled 10#. The original asking price for the 50# was $30, but they were willing to take $20. When I arrived, her teenage son met me was calling someone to negotiate. My offer of $60 for the 50# ROC-MO, (2) 25# ROC-MO and (2) York 10# was quickly accepted.
I was kicking myself for leaving behind the (4) York Milled 25# that I probably could have had for $0.50/lb (especially after paying $1.50/lb plus shipping earlier this year). However, I really dislike the York 25# plates; they are awkward to handle and even if I could flip them for $1/lb, it hardly seemed worth the effort.
Now I am pretty much committed to making a set of ROC-MO and will have to buy a pair of 15# from Chief. Getting the pick of the litter, I left behind the other ROC-MO plates rather than assembling items for trade.
The listing was for Pesas de 25 lbs y 50 lbs. Pesas means dumbbells in Spanish and I will definitely be adding this to my search terms.
I would definitely like to clean these up and paint them black and finish with gold lettering.
