I got a pair of the 15 KG Hampton "bumpers" - but was very annoyed to discover that they are merely iron plates with a rubber rim, rather than true solid rubber bumpers. Although they are cheap, they are probably not too much better than your standard iron plates in terms of "drop-ability". With this in mind, I would advise either getting iron plates (which will be even cheaper), or splashing out more for proper bumpers (although they'll take a bit of finding if Oz is anything like the UK - oh for a supplier like Bigger Faster Stronger over here!).

However, I also got a Hampton bar that I am very happy with - it was mega-cheap and very good value.
