Decent price weights?

Where do you guys purchase your weights at? Dumbbells mainly!

I was looking around at prices at Academy and some other big shops... $$$

you can probably find some good deals on used ones on craigslist. the good thing about it is that they are all local. so no shipping on heavy weights.

I found some decent deals on Craigslist... pending a phone call back and figuring out a way to pick it up, I might be on to something. ;p

Does anyone know who may be interested in 2 complete weight set ups? I've been trying to sell mine, so I don't have to move it. Its listed on here and I haven't really gotten serious offers. Any suggestions?

I don't have any dumbbells for sale, but I have a full standard olympic weight set that I'd sell for $70. $80 with a curl bar. I think there's 320-340lbs of weight. I also have a rack for the weights that I'd sell for $15.

Just get'em new at a specialized fitness store. The quality of caps weights isn't exactly up to par. You "may" get some that are accurate in terms of a plate truly being 45lb for example, but they are not consistent, they've been known to be off 2-5lbs. Stick with USA if you can find them, much more consistent in their quality.
