Hi everyone. Just wanted to get some advice. I am interested in getting a shrug bar for my home gym, but don’t have a lot to spend. Mirafit makes a pretty cheap one that would work fine for me. See it here:
They also make a version with a stand, and from what I can tell the stand height matches standard olympic weight plates. So it wouldn’t really change my range of motion.
What I don’t understand is why the version with a stand is cheaper. I spoke to customer service and they said the version without stand is a better seller, and if you look around that’s what most other manufacturers offer.
The stand seems like a great idea to me - no more holding the bar up with one hand while trying to angle on the plate with the other. Easier all around. But if it’s such a good idea, why is it cheaper and not as popular? What am I missing here? Does anyone have any negative experience they could share? It’s a fair bit of money for me, and I don’t want to regret it because of something stupid I overlooked.
