Pipe insulation may have been a better option.
    I kinda wish I'd gone with the Vulcan Alphas. I went with the Rogue Hi Temps--they seemed tough, relatively cheap, and I felt comfortable throwing money at Rogue given their exceptional reputation for customer service. if I get more bumpers, I'm going to get Alphas. How're you liking the calibrated Rogue plates?

    I really like the calibrated steel Rogue weights as well as the change plates. Both are accurate +/-10 grams. The Alphas are +/-1%. Initially I had gotten some cap brand weights for the low entry cost. The actual weight varied so much it triggered my OCD. I wound up selling them to a friend and buying the Rogues.

    I may not be able to keep the bar inside the house on a regular basis due to space issues and a toddler. What's the next best thing? To buy a carry bag, and store it in the bag in a shed?

    You can't roll it under a bed?

    What did you end up doing for an outdoor squat rack/stand? I wonder about the elements and the rack rusting, while I consider an outdoor gym (out of necessity).
