Thanks ordered! Most of these are 2" which means I can't use my current plates. I do kinda need 2 like 20lb plates now though... I have no clue how long one wants one of these to be, but seems good.

Anyone looking at this should be aware that it's not going be usable in a rack (so no squats.) It's suitable for bench press for most people but make sure you have a spotter, I prefer benching in a rack (which again wouldnt be possible) to having a spotter. You could use it for DLs if you do conventional but probably too short for sumo and really the weight capacity most people would be maxing this out.
It might be good for use with a landmine, note that the shorter length will affect the movement a bit (not better necessarily better or worse but different) and you should only be loading up half the rated weight when using it with a land mine.
IMO Better than nothing but not very useful as your only bar and of limited usefulness as a secondary bar.
