Old school cast iron

Nothing replicates the sound of old school steel plates being lifted in a gym.  Rogue Black Olympic Plates are simple, classic, and tough enough for daily abuse.

Sold in pairs, these time-tested cast iron weightlifting plates range from 1.25 lbs. up to 45 lbs., with custom orders available to equip your affiliate or home gym as you see fit.

Black steel Olympic plates are still the gold standard for many serious weightlifters, and Rogue’s plates stand up against any and all competition.

Rogue Olympic Plates is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real Deal Equipment I have had some 25's and 45's for sometime now, and have no complaints. I train 5-6 days a week and am very pleased with them. They scuff, chip, clang, and bang like they should when using them. If you complain about chips and/or scratches then you're looking at the wrong aspects and should take up a different hobby. They aren't competition plates and don't cost anywhere near what competition plates do, so who cares. They definitely get the job done for someone who is actually looking to lift and train. If you are going to be dropping them from higher lifts I would definitely recommend bumper plates for safety purposes as well as prolonging the life or your equipment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good enough, but... We bought these for our gym here in Tulsa, OK; going forward, we're going to be focusing on Rogue's training bumpers instead (which we also purchased). These are reasonably priced, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. The tolerance is average — we weighed a "45lb" plate at 47.4lbs, and another on the same scale at 44.3lbs. That's not good, but it's also pretty typical for 'standard' iron plates. The finish on these plates is also average at best. It's susceptible to scratches and chips, and there are bumps where they aren't molded evenly. On a few of the plates, the chrome lettering bleeds off the letters and onto the plate itself. That's not to say they're bad; it's just that they're nothing to write home about. For our gym, we're going to stick with the training bumpers going forward because they have a much better fit and finish, and are built to much tighter tolerances.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, but... Got just the 1.25 and 2.5 lbs so I'll have a full set of fractional plates to gain my strength back. One of the 1.25 lb have a small protrusion of metal. I think I can just file that, so not too big of a deal. One of the 2.5 lb have a chip out of it. No sign of the 'chips' in the bag/box, so it had to be there before packing. These are just fractionals, so I would really hate to return them for that. But it does make me question ordering 'larger' ones of this type.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Surprisingly slippery Plates are exactly as advertised and would be perfectly fine except that they seem to be coated in some sort of gloss paint on the edges - probably an effort to keep them from chipping but the result is that they are insanely slippery! Even the 25s are hard to pick up when laying flat because there is zero friction between my fingers and the plate. Pretty frustrating. Going to investigate spraying them with some flat paint or primer. If that doesn't work then maybe some spray rubber. Never seen plates like this before!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets all expectations I've had a set of 5 lb and 2.5 lb plates for a while now, and plan to load up on a few sets of 45s soon. As some of the other reviews said, if you're worried about chips or scratches, then spend the extra money on the pretty training bumpers. Otherwise, these are the standard for most garage gyms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done. I'll never understand the impulse to spend $$$ on pretty plates. Weights have one job: to be heavy. Cast iron gets the job done and is incredibly durable without requiring profligate spending. Let's face it: you can find cheaper weights on Craigslist, but you're here because you want new equipment. I get it. Me too. But there's just no need to be flashy. Stop worrying about what color your plates are and get lifting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for change plates I only have the 1.25, 2.5, and 5 lb variants to use with my bumper plates. I've dropped them and they seem fine, other than the small defects they came with (paint and chipping of metal, possibly from casting). I would say they're a 4.5/5 due to their less than perfect "new" quality. I don't need the utmost precision so these work great for my home gym as change plates. Good value for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Casting, coating, and weight measurements The casting quality could be better. I was displeased with the inconsistency in the cast for the 45 pound plates. I have barely used these -- 3 or 4 times to bench press or squat, and they have been lightly used. I take very good care of my equipment, and the coating is chipping off already. I bought quite a few of these plates, and I finally got around to weighing them after having them a while. I used a digital scale that weighs to the nearest 0.2 pounds. Here's what I came up with: Four 45 pounders registered: 45, 45, 45.4, and 44.4. Two 25 pounders registered: 24.0 and 25.2. Four 10 pounders registered 10.0, 10.0, 10.0 and 9.8. I expect slightly higher quality in the casting and finish with a better than +/- 1.0 pounds at the higher weights. These are good looking plates though for whatever that's worth. That's one reason I'm disappointed the finish is chipping off after barely any use.
