Re: Colored Bumper Plates

Call them @ 1-800-239-5194 or shoot Jason an email - jhughes@wrightexercise.com (WFS)

I got my bumpers from them, plenty of threads about how great both their products and customer service are.

Re: Colored Bumper Plates

I was wondering about the bumper plates everyone has purchased. I know we often look for the lowest price, but how do the "cheaper" plates hold up? Does it makes sense to spend a little more for a set that is going to last or are these less expensive plates holding up?

The gym I work out at recently purchased new bumper plates. Within a week a couple were bent to hell. I'm not sure where they got them and there was no name on the plates. I was just wondering if this happened a lot with the cheaper plates? If so, I'd rather spend a little more and get a better quality plate that is going to last.

My Wright plates get pretty bent, especially the 10 lb plates. I stack them under a 45 lb plate overnight and they're as good as new.

Re: Colored Bumper Plates

I'm not sure why you would want colored bumpers, unless they're Werksan training/competition plates. You ought to be able to judge the plate weight by the thickness for standard bumpers, and the color scheme is off for the Wright Rubber plates anyway...

Re: Colored Bumper Plates

Cheapest way to turn ordinary black bumpers into the (IWF standard) easily recognisable coloured variety...

Re: Colored Bumper Plates

Good call Steven. I was going to suggest colored duct tape around the edges. Wal Mart has every color you could ever want.
