Shermworks Halfers (microloading plates) Review
Recently I purchased a set of 0.5 lbs microloading plates from Sherman after reading about this new possible product in "Opinions, muicroloading plate" thread.
Let me first touch on what they are about:
The idea behind 0.5 lbs increment is that you increase the weight on the bar by half a pound on each sleeve or one pound in total . So, the weight can go up on the bar in this sequence:
1lbs –> 2lbs –> 3 lbs –> 4 lbs.
The next step you just use two traditional 2.5 lbs plates to get 5lbs increase on the bar.
After that you can just use microloading plates again: 1lbs –> 2lbs –> 3 lbs –> 4 lbs.
Now the review:
The plates arrived neatly packed in a small postal carton that fits in a standard mailbox. Sherman included a sharpie marker as I requested unmarked plates.
