Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but great news from Body Solid today!
Cast Iron Grip Plates are in stock in the Chicago warehouse.
If you still have an order with us for these plates, we will be processing drop-ship and in-store orders right away. In spite of the price increases, those who have stuck-it-out with us will be getting their plates for the ordered price. Click on our logo in the upper left hand corner of any page to return to our home page, then scroll down to our "New Products" area to see what plates and sets are available.
We are still waiting for both black and colored rubber grip plates. . . thank you all for your patience!
