I also competed in a powerlifting meet two weeks ago and in the warm up room they had some competition bumpers and some of the inserts were completely blown out.
I don't plan on doing wods with these. They will be mainly used for Olympic lifting on a platform between 3 people.
I have the MDUSA bumpers and I have a couple weights w/ lose inserts. I've had my bumpers a year or so. It doesn't bother me that much. I only use mine for me and my wife in the garage, not heavy use at all.
