I know this topic has been discussed alot and I looked at most items on the search tool, however I have some specific questions I'm hoping you can help me with:
Regarding this product http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/92563.html
1) If you have used it, what are the pros and cons of basic use compared with the elite product?
2) My lifts rarely exceed 315 lbs, is there other options I should consider as far as brands or sellers? I'm not a BB or powerlifter, I lift for fun and health, so given my needs, should I spring the extra $$ for elite-type-equipment?
3) Budget is not so much an issue, I just don't want to buy a ferrari to race at the go-cart track.
Any help is appreciated.
