What is the advantage of this Champion Rubber Coated Grip Plate?
Customer reviewsGreat priced bumper plates
In general, these are great, and are much cheaper priced than my VTX bumpers. They look awesome much better than in the photos because the lettering is not only raised, but painted silver, and generally look higher quality than I expected. They are also physically thinner than VTX bumper plates, so I can pile more onto a bar than the VTX plates. However, the rubber coating is much harder than the VTX coating, and much thinner as well, so I am really not sure about how well it is going to hold up to things like heavy deads and rows where the plates impact the floor with significant force. Still, I ll keep this at 5 stars as long as they hold together.
