I've been using the 45's and 25's for a few weeks. Just got my 10's 5's and 2.5's yesterday to complete the set. When I first looked at them online, they seemed equivalent to the cheap cast iron non-machined plates that you could theoretically get for a bit over $1/lb before Covid, but as Strength Co developed the product, it was apparent that they are really more equivalent to machined plates that you used to be able to buy from the other companies before COVID for $2-3/lb. This makes them a good value, especially considering that nobody else seems to be shipping plates. Glad they took the time to upgrade to the e-coat finish. I accidentally dropped two of my 45's from about 5 feet onto a concrete floor the first day, and they didn't even chip. Thanks to Grant and his crew for developing a great product! under difficult circumstances!
Plates are very well made. Extremely happy with our purchase!!!!!
Sturdy plates, great find! American made and fair price considering the pandemic mess we are in.
These are the nicest plates we have. Thank you for making them in America.
They are great quality plates
