Re: Diamond bumpers

Noone has had the chance to see them or at least heard of them?

Re: Diamond bumpers

Never seen or heard of them, but from appearances only, they look like the same CrossFit bumpers sold by Wright Rubber and Rogue. In that case they're pretty good bumpers. We've got a couple of sets of them here at CrossFit Will County. I'd check with Rogue or Jason at Wright to see if that's the best deal though.

Re: Diamond bumpers

Wow. The prices on those sets are very respectable. They seem to be a tabd bit larger than standard plate size though. Isn't it supposed to be 17 something? 17.7? For that price though why not give them a shot

Re: Diamond bumpers

Does anyone know how thick the metal inserts are in other plates? In that page it says they are 2mm thick which doesn't sound like much.

Re: Diamond bumpers

A bit off topic here but their KB prices are nice too if you can pickup locally.

Re: Diamond bumpers

I'm going to give them a try. I talked to them this morning and they cater to high schools, colleges and other institutions. They said that these bumpers have done real good so far on the field and he noted some problems they had with Hamptons. They had to replace those all the time and finally gave up on praising them to institutions, but they still sell them on their website.

Re: Diamond bumpers

Check out Wichita Falls Weightlifting...Glenn Pendlay.

He has a crossfit set for 529. Yes more than the $403 for their set. But...It includes the bar and shipping.

I talked to this other place and even if I pick it up I still will pay shipping. They told me that they would question the quality of the plates at that price Glenn is charging.

I trust the people here, so many have said that they have the quality and are willing to back it up.

If you check this out and compare you may find that you can do better with one of the suppliers used by many of the people here.

I may be wrong, but I'm not sure how good a deal it is.

Re: Diamond bumpers

Well, I have the HD bar from Glenn, but was looking to buy locally since shipping is calculated on the set also. The diamond set is 320#.

Re: Diamond bumpers

I read on another post call "Bumper Plate advice" that steel is better than brass and the plates you are looking at use brass. check that thread out
