Re: bumper fail

Yeah, send them an email or call them up. Show them pictures they should replace it free. Just hope they don't send you one with other defects in it. (Happened to me many times, don't shop at muscledriver anymore.)

Re: bumper fail

I bought my Pendlay elite bumpers off of csnstores and both of the 10kg plates had rust on the inside of the collar opening. I emailed Pendlay directly, bypassing csn, and they are sending me replacements. Good customer service.

my 15s did the same thing. It's as if the rings were too small or something. Then I looked at my rogue hi temps and the center ring on my 10s was appropriately sized. Econ really means econ I guess.

In my situation, yes, they arrived with rust on them. Not sure if your equipment is used or not. Just contact them using this address orders@pendlay.com and explain your situation along with pictures, only takes a couple of minutes.

Re: bumper fail

It sounds like you are saying that the insert shifted from one side of the bumper plate to another side, meaning there would be a large bulge on one side of the plate near the collar. Is the insert loose? Can you move it side to side? Can you take pictures from each side of the plate (side view) and post them? It is not uncommon for a thin layer of rubber to overlap an insert. When the plates are removed from the molds they are roughly 250-300 degrees. They are immediately put on a press for the insert to be pressed and crimped. The pressure can crimp the insert into the rubber especially near the outer edge because the rubber is still soft, which is does not effect the performance of the plate and ensures the best way to get the tightest fit of the insert into the plate. This means there may be a small amount of rubber overlapping the metal around the outer edge of the insert. This can be peeled off, it has no effect on the performance of the plate.
