So I found a really crazy deal on craigslist. Some dude was selling about 490lbs of Iron Grip IGX Rubber Plates for about $1 a pound.
Typically a set like this would go for around $1200+ so of course I had to jump on this deal. Anyway, this just improves my home just a little bit more. No more loud banging when doing deadlifts and now it’s easier to load and de-load the bar. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Much better than the Body Solid ones I was planning on purchasing for the same price, but half the weight. :-/
