There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I have purchased three sets of these so far for myself. Now, for my clients I have linked at least 10 to this and they have subsequently purchased these at my recommendation. These function very well when they work.
Now, One of my clients ordered a set and was disappointed to find that she couldn't fit a couple of the plates on the bar. I took a look and sure enough they were not like the others. I felt obligated to trade her for some of mine and I figured I could just shave off what appeared to be excess paint and then I would be able to slide them on the bar. So, I ground off the extra paint, but they still would not accommodate the diameter of a standard Olympic barbell. I am disappointed but willing to rescind this poor review if I am sent a replacement set of plates. I did see where this had happened to one other reviewer and he was similarly compensated. So, 44SPORT, I send this in good faith that you will support your product. Photos included: you can see the difference in the paint jobs on the two problem plates vs. my myriad functional plates.
EDIT: I just ordered my first set of "The Friendly Swede" micro plates off Amazon since it has been a month now without this faulty plate issue being addressed by the manufacturer. I will see how they treat me and if things go well, I will be directing a great deal of business their way.
This brand went on sale, so I decided to give it a chance. They look cool, but accuracy was my bigger concern. When they arrived, all of the plates were in great condition. Time for the real test: I used my kitchen scale to measure the accuracy and I was very pleasantly surprised. All 8 of these plates were very, very close to the stated weight. Close enough that I consider them "spot on" for any reasonable purpose.
When I weigh all 8 plates together, I think they totaled 5.002 or 5.004 pounds. I can't remember the exact number, but it was close enough that I was impressed. Even the small inaccuracies balanced each other out in the end.
I have a home gym and I care about the accuracy of my plates. I use a balance scale for the larger plates, and a kitchen scale for the smaller plates. I don't understand why weight plates tend to be so variable (they have one job!)... but that's just the way it seems to be. It gives me peace of mind knowing that my loads are accurate; so I only keep plates that are close to their stated weight and it has taken some effort to collect my full set. When you load 200 lbs on the bar, you want to know that it is very close to 200 lbs. Not 203. Not 197. etc.
And, with fractional plates, you might want to progress from 200 to 201, 202, 203, 204, and then finally 205. Or maybe you want 200 to 202.5 and then 205. You certainly don't want 199.2 to 203.1 and then 201.7 and then 204.8. Never knowing for sure why your progress seems somewhat random. Weights have, by definition, one job in life: they must weigh that amount.
Anyway, these fractional plates more than met my expectations. They are very accurate, look very nice, and fit on the barbell great. I am glad that I gave this brand a chance. The brand I was using just before I bought these is the Iron Bull fractional plate set. Those worked "OK", but they didn't fit the barbell very well at all (the hole was too big so they were loose), and all of them were lighter than the stated 0.5 lb weight. They were all about 0.44 lbs. That level of inaccuracy adds up when you add all 8 to the barbell. Now, instead of 4 lbs, you have only added about 3.5 lbs. You also get less flexibility without the 0.25 lb plate. (No half pound steps.) So, you can't do a 2.5 pound jump (100 to 102.5 to 105). I found that annoying, so then I bought...
The other brand I tried is the Rogue 1.25 pound fractional plates. Now, I could do 2.5 lb jumps. They looked nice, but it took me two attempts to get a set that fit on my barbell correctly and the plates were too random and not accurate. I ended up ordering 4 sets of these (don't ask) and kept the best pair. I think one of them weighs 1.258 lbs (I consider that fairly accurate, it was the best one by far) and the other is 1.17 lbs (not quite good enough in my opinion, but close enough). Remember, those are the best 2 out of 8 I bought. The others were much worse and I just discarded them. (Shipping from Rogue was so expensive on these relative to the product cost that it was cheaper to just order multiple sets at once, weight them all, and keep the best 2 rather than deal with product returns). I might still keep these around, because 1.25 lb plates are useful if you already own them and already spent a lot of time and energy/money getting an accurate enough pair. :-)
BUT, if you are reading this review then you can easily get 2.5 lb jumps (1.25 lbs on each side) with just these 44SPORT plates. You don't need a specialized 1.25 lb plate set. Had I known better, I could have saved myself a lot of hassle and expense and just ordered this set first.
2 whites = .5 lb.
2 greens = 1 lb.
2 blues = 1.5 lb.
2 reds = 2 lb.
2 reds + 2 whites = 2.5 lb.
2 reds + 2 greens = 3 lb.
2 reds + 2 blues = 3.5 lb.
2 reds + 2 blues + 2 whites = 4 lb.
2 reds + 2 blues + 2 greens = 4.5 lb.
2 reds + 2 blues + 2 greens + 2 whites = 5 lb.
