Some of the rubber was slightly chipped off of one of the weights I got, but other than that it was a fast delivery and they're pretty good plates for the price

They are quality plates. Despite a shortage of supply across the country due to COVID, they had them in stock and I received them within a week. I have been waiting 3 months so far for an order from a local company with no updates. Perform Better had great customer service and communication!

These are very nice plates, nearly comparable to IronGrip. What I liked the most was the customer service and fast shipping!

Rubber encased grip plates are a great product! They are durable, do not rust like bare metal plates, and they are easy to handle and maneuver on & off equipment.
The Right Weight for Heavy Lifting!

Had to create a garage gym bc of the pandemic. Research a ton of equipment and weights. Perform Better ahs the best free weights. They are well build, rubber with a metal center. The open make great handles to lift and lower. Over the moon on these weights. Order 8-45lbs, and 2-25lbs. After receiving them order the 5's and 10's. Highly recommend.
In love !!!!

Wow, the minute I took these out of the box I was amazed. I wish I would’ve knew about these before I bought cast iron change plates, they were scratching up my sleeves so I’m super happy I found these to replace them. Quality of these are amazing, no complaints. And the shipping was incredibly quick, they are so easy to move around and slide perfectly on the sleeves of my bars, and they aren’t so loud as cast iron. Stop hesitating and buy these plates!!!
Great change plates

Bought the 2.5 and 5 lbs as change plates. Really happy to have the steel center inserts so they go on and off the bar smoothly. Will buy the 10s as well once the shipping is more affordable.
Good plates, fast shipping!

Shipping was incredibly fast, and I haven't seen a better priced set new of rubber-encased plates in stock anywhere during Covid. I had these plates in my hands within days of placing my order.
I was a little nervous about ordering because I didn't see the tolerance % listed anywhere, and I didn't see it mentioned in any of the other reviews, but the weights are pretty accurate by my home scale. I ordered 1 pair each of 45s, 25s, 10s, and 2.5s to supplement the weights I already had, and the PBXs weighed in as follows:
45 -- 44.5, 45.5
25 -- 25.1, 25.1
10 -- 10.2, 9.9
2.5 -- 2.5, 2.4
These plates very much smell like rubber. I'm not docking any stars for it since you tend to expect rubber to smell like rubber, but I wanted to note it because, if I had known the smell would be as strong as it is, I probably would've spent extra for the urethane-coated plates.
