Rubber Bumper Plates

Hi guys,

Looking for some equipment for my garage, finding it quite hard to find full rubber plates at a reasonable price anybody recommend somewhere in the UK?

Also there are plenty of rubber encased bumper plates are these suitable or should I just be sticking to the full rubber?

Cheers

Re: Rubber Bumper Plates

I would skip the rubber encased plates if you are going to dump the bar from the shoulder or higher. They will not bounce like true bumper plates.

That said, I CrossFitted with iron until I could afford bumpers, back in the day. I just didn't dump the bar.

Re: Rubber Bumper Plates

Thanks for the advice guys, I'd prefer full rubber but may have to be a mixture for now and add more full rubber as I can afford to

Cheers

Re: Rubber Bumper Plates

I've found some much cheaper if ordered from China but min order is 1000kg and not sure what kind of quality they'll be. Anybody have experience of ordering from China?

Re: Rubber Bumper Plates

I found a few companies on Alibaba

Nantong Wohlstand Co. Ltd. and T.W. International Trade Co., Limited are the 2 that have got back to me with quotes so far

Both companies you're looking at around $1800 plus shipping for 1000kg which is amazingly cheap compared to the prices in the UK and USA I've seen

Only thing is it's a lot more weight than I was looking for and I'm not sure what the quality is like

Re: Rubber Bumper Plates

I've not looked for a about 2 years now, but when I did strength shop was by far the cheapest for bumpers

Mine have held up really well, and get used and dropped everyday.
