Rogue out of Echo bumpers

Was just getting ready to order some rogue echo bumpers, now they are out of all of them for the next 5-6 weeks.

Any recommendations of some similiar priced and similiar quality bumpers?

Re: Rogue out of Echo bumpers

we ordered a couple hundred pounds of Fringesport's OFW bumpers back in November and we couldn't be happier. Good quality and price. We are especially impressed with the quality of the 10# plates. They are much tougher than even the Rogue HG's. Haven't had one taco yet.

MuscleDriverUSA has the Econ V2 bumpers which are the same as the Rogue HGs - we've abused ours and they keep coming back for more. Free shipping on all their bumpers, too, which definitely helps matter.

They are only $245 for a set of 160lbs, that's why I was going to get them.

A set of 160lbs for the Rogue HG bumpers are 298$.

Muscle driver has the econ V2 160lb set for $279. So Im leaning towards this now since its the cheapest Ive seen

Re: Rogue out of Echo bumpers

I know they're cheaper. But why? What is the difference in quality, manufacturing, or whatever that makes them more economy than the HG Bumpers?

Also if price is the main factor for you check out www.getrxd.com (wfs) as well as www.fringesport.com (wfs). With Fringe realize that while they're listed prices are slightly higher than other companies there is no shipping cost. So make sure you factor shipping into the overall price when comparing.

Edit: So I checked the prices and getrx let me down on this one. 245 is a solid price. I think Fringe has that beat though. Not sure what Rogue is charging for shipping.

Rogue is free shipping. That's probably why they all sold out....

Re: Rogue out of Echo bumpers

Well that's a bummer. I probably would have bought them too. And now it says they won't have them until probably mid April. Major buzz kill.

Edit: dude can you give me the link you're looking at? Everything I look at on Rogue's site says no free shipping. I'd consider just buying the KG echo plates if it was that good of a deal.

The muscle driver set ships for free though.
