Default Rebar - Iron Woody Bar - Fractional Set

Anyone have any experience with this Bumper set? It seems like a good deal but I'm wondering how it compares as a competition set (training set)

I saw that ad earlier this week and I thought it was a good deal. Never used those particular plates but I figured if they were good enough for the Olympics they would probably be good enough for me.

Yeah... The Zhangkong set would be nice. It's the Rebar - Iron Woody Bar - Fractional Set that I was hoping someone had some experience with. Looks great for the price. Think I'll just give it a shot.

That is really funny. My bad. I clicked through on the link and just saw the set at the top of the page. I actually can speak to part of the set you are talking about. I have the Iron Woody Fractional Plates and they are exactly what they say they are. I use them on a regular basis. They work great in linear programming.

I have never used the rebar bumpers which probably is a little more important. Let us know how they are.
