Free 2"X12" nipple, $3 flexible steel cable(plastic coated) and $9 worth of stoppers to tie the cable together, as well as a hook. The plates(5lb and 10lb)were $15 bucks extra. I guess that is a $27 total for everything. Some of you already have plates and will not have to buy plates. All of the parts are rated to some ungodly amount, like 500lbs or something, so this bitch will NOT fall apart or fail. This thing is kicking my ass for the 3rd timwe this week, MWF. Thanks for all the help in my other thread too guys. Here is a pic of it, I put a blue pen in the shot for size comparison.
