Our first shipment of StrongArm plates arrived in July, and was totally sold out before it arrived. More is due in early October, and is already about 1/2 sold as of September 1.
Powerlifting contests are always done using the metric size plates, yet most commercial gyms use "pound" plates that are usually low quality, meaning inaccurate weights. When you are training for a contest, you want to know that your training weights are EXACTLY what you want them to be, not plus or minus.... anything!
StrongArm plates are not on the IPF approved list (not yet at least), but only because we did not want to pay the enormous fees the IPF wants for this. They ARE made to IPF specifications for calibrated weight, dimensions and colors (by the same factory as a well known brand that is IPF approved). So while you cannot use them for competition in CPU contests, they are perfectly acceptable in the warmup room at CPU meets, or in other feds, and home or commercial gyms. You can be assured they are every bit as precise and accurate as the plates you will see on the contest platform. You are just paying considerably less for them!
All sets include as many 25 kg's as you select, and a pair each of 20, 15, 10, 5, 2.5 and 1.25 kg plates.
