The true test is the reputation a product earns over a sustained period of heavy use. An example of this is the fact that our competition and training bars and bumper plates have been used at the Olympic Training Center since 1996 with no bar failures and no maintenance.
Our Collegiate Series Bumper Plates have been used in a large number of the Division 1 Colleges/Universities in the United States since 2002.
Many purchasers are tempted to buy the least expensive product they can find. They soon realize, after purchasing several replacements, they could have saved money by purchasing a quality product from the start.
