I just got them in. I like the looks of them. Not too wide, I think not much more than a thin 45. They slide relatively tight on my York bar. They seem to bounce to the side pretty hard when I drop just the 10’s, but drop nicer when there is a 10 and a 20. I was a little surprised how the 10s had lost a little of the sharpness of their shape after a few drops, but I am hoping someone will tell me this is all normal and the shape won’t change much more. I am dropping them on a stall mat on my basement floor.

So, what's the verdict for you guys who got the bumpers? Are they strong enough?

Are they relatively quiet? Do most bumpers have a steel centers, I would think that it might make them a bit noiser ???
Put up a review/pics if you get a chance. Thanks, Tom

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be happy or terrified that no one's responding after getting their bumpers...

Is the posted price at your website per pair or per bumper?

Josh-
Thank you.

I am going to take the proactive approach and report a mishap with one pair. Michael Schimdt did have an issue of the 10kg coming off the rim center. He was not able to field repair the item, so we will need to trade him out on Monday. Our engineering department will evaluate his pair to determine if it was a fluke situation. Michael has been very helpful and patient with the process.

The most important thing that I want to emphasize is that the company I work for has an excellent reputation for product support after the sale, and I have confidence that we will determine all if any flaws with this product.

Karl
