Cheap Olympic Plates.

If you are one of those people (like me) that is baffled by the ridiculous price for Olympic Plates these days, new or even used, I thought this might be of interest to you,  I've just bought some of these, 2 x 20kg's for £53.99 delivered, so £1.35 a KG delivered. 
  
  Now I must add I HATE these tri grip things, I have seen them snap in half when dropped. but then I don't drop weights personally.  Due to the 'unique' (****ty) design, they can be Gaffer taped back together for the most part, but its not a good look. 
 
I thought this was a good price and might help someone out, If you know of better (inc delivery!) please link!

    Power House Fitness and Fitness Superstore for the most part seem to offer the best price on plates frow what I've seen.  If you prepared to spend over £100 and buy from their website, then the sometimes have voucher deals between 5-10% to give you a slight saving.

    Yes, on Powerhouse's website I was offered two different 5% codes while I was pondering my order,  The 20Kg's I ordered were the same £53.99 a pair, but you had to pay for delivery.   I was only ordering one pair for now, so once delivery was added,  even after the discount it worked out cheaper to buy them via their ebay store in this instance. 
     
    They seem to be so much cheaper than everyone else. with some charging like £60 for a single 20KG plate! 
     
    They must buy container loads of this stuff from China.

    Will do, not too fussed as long as they are close to being the same.   I am going to go ahead and guess about 18.5Kg, as we had some similar ones at my old gym, and thats what they were.
