Default 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!!

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.
