Default Opinions on strengthshopusa out of Chicago?

Does anyone have any familiarity with https://www.strengthshopusa.com/?

They have some nice looking pieces and cheap (~$1/lb.) bumper plates. I'm curious if anyone has done business with them and can speak to the quality of their products. Certainly, you get what you pay for -- but, experience is best! (Any more cliches?)

I'm specifically looking at their farmer's handles (if anyone has comments):
https://www.strengthshopusa.com/delu...ers-walks.html
because they are "tray" style (protecting the ground and the plates).

I haven't heard of them before. They appear to also have separate European and UK distribution.

Best,
Mark

I haven't bought anything from them myself, but strengthshop.co.uk has a good reputation for selling quality products at sensible prices and a high standard of service. There's a long running thread on the Sugden Barbell site that started back when they were still called vegansportshop.co.uk that should give you some idea of how the UK arm of the company operates.
