So I've been searching the web for some blob weights and people want way to much money. Has anyone purchased a new legacy and chopped it? If so how is it?

Legacy blobs were the first ones I bought, they helped me increase my hand strength when I started with block weights and blobs.  They have good texture to grip on.  They are thinner than 2nd gen and fatman blobs which make them a little easier, but still good to train with imo.

I wouldn't have said they were thinner but they do have one side flatter, with the other being a lot more rounded.

This makes them easier to lift, conventional or with the thumb on the flatter side but a whole lot harder reversed.

I've lifted a few Blobs and my 45kg Legacy reversed is still one of my fave feats.

good luck getting the actual bell shipped to you... i had purchased one about a year ago and three months later i told them to just give me my money back.. not the best customer oriented company

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I was going to purchase it from ebay so I should have better luck with shipping or else it would be real bad for their rating

Wow really? That sucks for a company that was built off of mail-order business...
