10 pound rubber bumpers are never going to be extremely "durable" of their own.
The plastic technique plates are, but are pricey. If being used with other meatier bumpers they will be just fine.

Re: Rogue Fitness bumpers

I purchased mine as part of a set. They seem pretty durable, but I honestly haven't dropped them when they were the only plates on the bar.

Look at it this way - the price of the plates plus shipping is about the same as dinner for two at most chain restaurants. The effects of the meal are gone in a few hours, but the effects of the plates last much longer.

As far as 10# bumpers, I would put them against any of their competitors and it's a no brainer in that price range. We are VERY happy with our choice to use Rouge bumpers at our box. We ordered roughly 10 sets of them(10's, 25's, 45's), and will most likely go with them in the future. Any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

Re: Rogue Fitness bumpers

Thanks for the replies guys, they seem like a standup company just checking in. The pricing seemed to good to be true! How long did it take for them to get shipped to you?

Re: Rogue Fitness bumpers

I outfitted my gym from Rogue. Their products are great quality and the staff were extremely helpful. The shipping company lost my B&R barbell and Kris had another one in route the same day. I highly recomend these guys!

Re: Rogue Fitness bumpers

They are great 10s as far as quality. I ordered 25s from Wichita Falls and the two are different diameters. I haven't measured to see which one is 17.7", but perhaps this is a lesson in brand loyalty?

Re: Rogue Fitness bumpers

thumbs up for Rogue. Very quick response to questions, quick shipping. The 10s do bend when dropped but... they are 10s.
