OneFitWonder Barbell + Color Bumper Plates by Fringe Sports

Back in those days, Fringe Sports had only limited options with much smaller sized inventory. I decided to give them a try and contacted them over a discounted Barbell, which was an original OneFitWonder Bar. It’s true that the bearing and specification wasn’t that good but the price was pretty much up to the mark.

Final Verdict and Review
Overall in my opinion, the weight set by OnFitWonder is not really perfect but will definitely fit the bills. I choose them over Rogue was because of their weight tolerance of 1% above or below mentioned weight Sets Reviews 2018 . Whereas the 10lbs and 265lbs. was exactly up to the mark but after that from 35-55 lbs. it wasn’t really good enough and made my expectations pretty much down. There was a decrease of up to 2% on these plates which was really shocking thing to see. The pair comes in boxes which are taped together and the boxes are in pretty much bad, rough shape. Though the bumper plates weren’t affected by that but the plates were quite slippery at first, maybe it was because the paint and its smell was quite less and low. After working with them for several days in my garage, the slipperiness of paint vanished and so does the odor.
