Often times those who purchase competition weight plates are more than willing to spend an inordinate amount of money on other brands like Rogue, Eleiko, WerkSan, etc. However, after owning and using these plates for well over 2 years, I can unequivocally say compared to other top brands and using them all, these perform just as well at 1/2 to 1/4 of the cost.
The weight is very accurate, the bounce is low, and the quality is superb. KG plates are preferred for those competing in Oly lifting.
Not only do these NL plates come with one of the best warranties for competition plates given the price, but they include a colour-coding scheme (blue, green, yellow, red) which is only present in very high end plates.
The high durometer reading allows for a low bounce, matching and surpassing some of the top brands on the market as well.
