Yeah. I couldn't believe the price. A pair each of 45s, 35s, and 25s cost almost as much as I paid for the whole set.
None of my lifts are over 300 yet, but I was just curious because I bought this set to replace my old 1" set. That bar was maxed out at 200 and it was bending with anything more than 230 on it.
Like you said, though it was a cheap way to get a bunch of weight. When the time comes that I need to move up, I've got my eye on a bar rated at 700 for about $120.
