Final Verdict and Review
When I first purchased the Premium Color Bumper Plates by XTraining equipment, they arrived within a week which I must say was a great gesture by the company. Then, coming to its design and quality, I was very pleased with both of them the plates were made of 100% beefy rubber which looked durable enough for many years. I was pretty much aware that there are many Olympic plates in the market which are significantly more expensive and specifically designed for Olympians but these plates by Xtraining pretty much fulfilled my need of bumper plates and looked suitable for any environment, commercial, professional or many more.
The only negative aspect I faced from these plates was, the day when these plates arrived at my doorstep they were freshly painted just like coming out of factory mill. The Paint produced an overwhelming, unpleasant smell in my workspace since I purchased them to workout in my common area. If anyone, had such issue like I did, then I will suggest that let these plates dry out for couple of hours on your roof to make the smell go away before bringing them in. Though, the paint looked good and fresh but feeling such as of smell should also be taken account by the manufacturers. Regardless of that, I will again say that I’m very much satisfied with my purchase of 160lbs. Premium Color Coded Bumper Plates by XTraining Equipment through Amazon. The color coded on the plates makes the choosing of weight very easy. The seven footed Olympic bar is very rigid and strong. Big things short, I’m convinced with these plates and will say that they are the best buy regarding budget on the internet and will make a great adjustment in your gym equipment. Hence, highly recommended product!
