Good: Rogue HG 2.0: A durable but reasonably priced plate that's earned its keep at the highest levels of competition. HG Bumpers are available in LB and KG versions, and are cut thinner than a lot of comparable bumpers to allow for more weight to be loaded on the bar. They also produce a consistent dead blow and are built to last, with 25+ LB playes warrantied up to 3 years.
Better: Rogue Hi-Temp: One of the few American-made bumpers on the market, Hi-Temps have been manufactured in Alabama for over a decade, and they live up to their stellar reputation. Built from a nearly indestructible marriage of vulcanized crumb rubber and a 2" stainless steel insert, they're ready for whatever abuse you're ready to dole out.
Best: Rogue Training LB Bumper Plates: Trusted at the Reebok CrossFit Games, Rogue's Training Bumpers come in color-coded and classic black versions. With a tested Shore A durometer of 86 and a durable zinc-plated steel disc insert, they minimize the bounce on the drop and won't break down with heavy use over time. This is a Major League caliber bumper for athletes who demand the best.
