If you've ever seen these, you'll remember them. I believe York stopped making them quite a while ago. Anybody know where I might find some? I'm getting my son into the game and could use some light bumpers that could be dropped. Thanks

Kurt, Read through this thread: http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/26/21165.html

When this thread came out, we ordered a second set of bumper plates from Gill as well and got a great deal on the solid rubber plates. We also ordered the lighter sizes, like what you're looking for, in the training plates (I believe it was these: http://www.gillathletics.com/GillIte...px?FSID=WT225R). As long as you don't drop them from way overhead, especially with added weight, they will be great. You'll get a 20% CF discount w/Gill and they are very helpful w/any questions you have.

I have heard those lighter weight, yellow solid rubber plates are no longer made-if that is the York plate you're talking about.

Fitness Warehouse Inc., out of Missouri has 10# bumpers for $15 each. I have used them for a couple of years in a school setting w/o problems. Well, they are a bit larger than standard plates (1/2 or less) AND they only fit "regulation" bars, ie. Chapman, York, etc. THEY WILL NOT FIT A POWERBAR unless you took a Dremel to the inserts. They are much more rigid than the BFS/ Kraiburgs. You can drop them But I wouldn't recommend it. Hey, they are cheap and they work for what I need them for. Fitness Warehouse doesn't have a web site the last time I checked, if anyone is interested I dig out the phone#. .02

These might work. We have had an pair in our weight room for five years, and not a problem. Our original floor was concrete, and now we have a sample platform. My recommendation is though that you do not drop them if they are the only plates on the bar.

Mark, do you know the whereabouts in Missouri?

If you can find the phone number, it would be much appreciated.

Kurt,

I found a couple of choices in 10 pounders for you:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ANFENU/ref=nosim/103-4330140-8000654?n=3375 251
http://bsolympicgym.com/proddetail.asp?prod=2290

The ones from BS Olympic cost a few bucks more but Scott has been known to work with Crossfitters (i.e. includes shipping).
