The pursuit of the perfect weight plate is focused in four areas: Casting Quality, Weight Accuracy & Consistency, Hole Accuracy & Consistency, and Workmanship & Painting. When a plate is flawlessly cast and weighs what it says, you can feel the difference in every exercise. When the surface is expertly ground and painted, the quality is obvious to the eye and to the touch. When a plate's hole is machined true, it sits on the bar perfectly balanced without wobble. It gets down to pride. When you have quality Olympic plates on your gym's exercise floor or in your home, you see, feel, and appreciate the difference.
