Good: Rogue Color Echo Bumper Plates: Combined with stainless steel inserts and quality virgin rubber, these color-coded Echo Bumpers offer a dead bounce and durability rarely seen in an economical plate.
Better: Rogue HG 2.0: A durable but reasonably priced plate that's earned its keep at top high school and collegiate weight rooms. HG Bumpers are available in LB and KG versions, and are cut thinner than a lot of comparable bumpers to allow for more weight to be loaded on the bar. They also produce a consistent dead blow and are built to last, with 25+ LB plates warrantied up to 3 years.
Best: Rogue KG Competition Plates: Rogue Competition Plates are an IWF standard 450MM in diameter, with chrome-plated steel disc inserts and a 50.40MM collar opening for a firm, stable hold.
