10&15# plates

What company makes the 10s and 15s that will not bend? I do not want the straight up rubber ones.

Check out Fringesport.com (WFS) on their blog section. They did a video about some new bumpers that are meant to be more solid and durable.

I bought the OFW's from FringeSport. They are pretty sturdy. As Patrick said, look on there website, they have a video of them trying to bend a 10# plate I believe.

Re: 10&15# plates

I have Hi-Temps (from Rogue) and the 10 and 15s are fine to do cleans and such with. I have never had just the 10s on the bar and dropped it from overhead but as long as you aren't doing much of that, I cannot foresee an issue.

Re: 10&15# plates

They need to go Mythbusters on the 10lb plates. Start loading some metal plates outside and see where to breaking point is.
