Weight tolerances for ROGUE Bumper Plates by Hi-Temp

Anyone know the potential variation in actual vs labeled weight on these?

Thanks,

I remember recently reading a detailed thread about this a month or so ago:

Thanks Tom. I noticed that it said +/- 5% with one up to 12% but I thought that Rogue responded that the tolerances were being updated.

Re: Weight tolerances for ROGUE Bumper Plates by Hi-Temp

We are currently raiseing our quality standards. Right now all weights are garenteed to be within a pound. Right now we are running our weights with less than 3% over 1/2 lb. over the labeled weight
Within a week we will garentee all our weights to be within a 1/2 pound. These weights are for Lb's as well as Kg's.
Contact me if you have any questions.

Chuck has been pressing to get shift to shift quality standards in line. We discuss this weekly to dial it in. He has been collecting data over the past couple months to understand the capability further.

The Rogue HiTemps coming off the press right now will have a .5LB variance. To give this a percentage doesn't work because the variance percentage would change on a 10 vs a 55LB variant.

For comparison all of the MHTY style plates are at .45LB variance across the board.

Thanks for the replies gentlemen. I thought I remembered reading something to that effect but wanted to make sure.

Thanks,
I have a bunch of Hi-Temp bumpers (in pounds), most purchased from Rogue, some from Glenn Pendlay over the past year or so. Here are their weights in pounds per a 75 lb postal scale with an estimated accuracy within 0.125 lbs:

45 lb plates - 4 plates as follows - 45.19, 44.56, 46, 44.88
25 lb plates - 6 plates as follows - 25.13, 25.06, 25.06, 25.5, 25.06, 25.31
15 lb plates - 6 plates as follows - 15.44, 14.69, 15, 15.44, 15.25, 16
10 lb plates - 6 plates as follows - 10.13, 10.31, 10.31, 10.44, 10.5, 10.19

My bars also have different weights as follows:
Eleiko Olympic Training - 44.63 lbs
Rogue B&R bar - 43.63 lbs
Pendlay Econ HD 43.31 lbs

For a masters weightlifter as myself, with small incremental increases from session to session, these somewhat minor variations in weight make it a challenge to truly account for the weight lifted each week. This wouldn't be a problem if I used one bar and one set of bumpers. However, I workout in two different locations and my actual weights may vary up to apx 2-1/2 lbs for the same nominal weight depending on the combination of bumpers and bars used for a given session.

After a lot of experimentation in my affiliate, I've found that they're all rather heavy.
