help! where can i buy a TEXAS POWER BAR online?
 
Could anyone please give some advise regarding ordering a TPB internationally at an affordable shipping price?

I live in Lima, Peru, South America and they don't make any oly/power bars here so i have decided to buy online. I contacted Elite FTS for a shipping rate to my location, but it was too expensive for me (900+ $), especially considering the price of the actual bar.

Any suggestion would be GREATLY appreciated!! :)

Man I looked, couldn't find any stores in South America. What about E-Bay?

thanks for the help!

there are several TPBs from different brands being offered on ebay and amazon:

-CAP BARBELL (i've read that they are pretty crappy)
-ADER SPORTING GOODS
-TROY BARBELL

Any opinions on those brands?
I understand that the original is the Buddy Capp one, so i contacted irondawg, which is supposed to be the official distribuitor. their website looks kind of sketchy though (http://www.irondawg.com). Are they a reputable business?

Troy is a good brand. I've never used their bars but their plates are quality.
