Rogue Deep Dish Plates

Rogue’s exclusive Deep Dish Plates are directly adapted from the vintage-style machined plates we’ve used for the Elephant Bar Deadlift event at the Arnold Strongman Classic. Sold in pairs and available in four weight increments—25LB, 35LB, 45LB, 100LB (along with 5LB and 10LB change plates)—this line is 100% Made in the USA, bringing reliable cast plate production back home for the first time in years.

The extra-wide “deep dish” design of these plates instantly harks back to the classic cast iron plates of the past, which were used for all Olympic lifts before the first bumpers were invented in the 1960s. Historically, deep dish plates were favored more for functionality than aesthetic, as their increased surface area minimized the damage to old-school wooden platforms and rubber mats when dropped—but over time, they grew to be equally prized for their vintage appearance. With Rogue’s Deep Dish Plates, we have recaptured the iconic look and feel of that era while also utilizing the latest in modern casting, machining, and finishing methods, producing plates that are much more resilient than the ones that inspired them.

We developed this series with Cadillac Casting, Inc., a Michigan-based foundry backed by nearly 100 years of history in metal casting and an unmatched reputation for quality. As with our E-Coat Kettlebells (which they also produce), Cadillac casts the Deep Dish Plates from ductile iron, which has a higher tensile strength and yield strength than standard gray iron, along with superior corrosion resistance. Precision machining on the entire back, center hub, and outer rim of each plate ensures a uniform diameter and secure fit on the bar, and the electrically applied E-coat finish goes on thinner than a traditional powder coat, allowing for a lustrous finish without losing the underlying texture of the casting. E-coat is also known for its excellent adhesion, even coverage, and overall toughness.

Rogue USA Olympic Change Plates: Along with the four Deep Dish Plates, we also now offer a new line of exclusive cast iron change plates, currently available at 10LB (produced by Cadillac from ductile iron) and 5LB (produced by Ohio’s OSCO Industries from Class 30 Grey Iron). Our USA Olympic Change Plates feature the same E-Coat finish, machined center hub, and machined outer rim as the Deep Dishes, with additional machining on the front face of the outer rim.

KEY FEATURES OF ROGUE’S DEEP DISH PLATES:

1

INSPIRED BY HISTORY . . . AND THE ARNOLD

If you’ve seen the strongest men on Earth take on our Elephant Bar during the Deadlift competition at the Arnold Strongman Classic, then you’ve seen the plates that inspired the Deep Dish design. Like those Arnold plates, the Deep Dish Plates are also a call back to a golden age in weightlifting; built from clanging cast iron with a classic look and greater thickness and surface area than most modern plates.

2

MADE IN THE USA - CAST IN CADILLAC

Rogue developed this series with two of the leading metal casting foundries in the Midwest. Cadillac Casting, Inc. (Cadillac, MI) has designed and produced a wide variety of complex and safety-critical components for the automotive industry and other industrial clients since the 1920s. This reputable, privately owned foundry employs 400 highly skilled workers, and they were more than equipped to produce the tooling for our Deep Dish Plates in-house. Additional production for the 5LB USA Olympic Change Plate was provided by OSCO Industries (Portsmouth, OH), which has operated foundries in South-Central Ohio for nearly 150 years. Both of these firms are playing a key role in bringing quality cast iron weight plate production back to the USA.

3

DUCTILE IRON

All of our Deep Dish Plates (as well as the 10LB Change Plate) are cast in ductile iron, aka nodular cast iron, which contains strong graphite nodules that make it considerably tougher than standard gray iron. Ductile iron is regularly used to make automotive components, wheels, gear boxes, and machine frames, and its superior tensile strength, yield strength, and corrosion resistance makes it an ideal option for a long-lasting, extremely robust weight plate. Please Note: The 5LB USA Olympic Change Plate is made from Class 30 Grey Iron.

4

PRECISION MACHINING

The entire back portion of each DD plate is precision machined, as is the center hub (where the bar sleeve goes through) and the outer rim. This unique 3-surface machining process ensures that the plates fit tightly on the bar, are uniform in diameter, and sit flush against each other when loaded.

5

E-COAT FINISH

This electrically-applied paint coating was also initially developed for the automotive industry, due to its excellent adhesion, even coverage, and corrosion resistance. As a wet application, E-coat goes on thinner than powder coating, resulting in a smooth feel that retains more of the natural grit of the casting.

6

4 WEIGHT INCREMENTS

Our Deep Dish Plates are available in four sizes:
25LB: 10.87" (276mm) diameter, 1.35” (34.5mm) width
35LB: 14.17" (360mm) diameter, 1.35” (34.5mm) width
45LB: 17.72" (450mm) diameter, 1.97” (50mm) width
100LB: 17.72" (450mm) diameter, 2.95” (75mm) width.
Our USA Olympic Change Plates are currently available in two sizes:
5LB: 7.5” (190mm) diameter, 0.57” width (14.5mm)
10LB: 9” (229mm) diameter, 0.80” width (20mm)

Overall good product, but the buck stops there
I have bought around 550 lbs of these plates since they were released. The machines surfaces and overall design are as their ally pleasing and very functional. That being said, I did receive one 45 lb plate that was 47 lbs and it was a nightmare trying to get it exchanged, I ended up giving up and don’t use that plate anymore. The e coat on the plates is good, but it does chip under normal use (cosmetics don’t bother me, I’m more concerned about the plate that was out of spec). All in all, the products are great but if you are a low volume customer (not commercial gym or other customer ordering thousands of dollars in equipment) I have found customer service to be sub par.

Love these plates!
Picked these up to upgrade my old plates and couldn't be happier with them. These plates fit very snug to the bar sleeves and eliminate all bar slop. Highly recommend.
