    Trust me, it will repay them, even if little by little. Every person that thought about buying them, will rather think "yeah Imma get some Yorks... uhh York fitness? No, Protienand said they suck. Nope, not for me. Better get some York Barbell's. Yep. That's more like it."

    So as promised, here is the weigh in for the Body Power Olympic Weight plates.

    Bodypower oly plates.



    Look how straight they sit on the rack.


    I've talked these plates up a lot in the past so I was a bit apprehensive on how they would measure up. These plates are to my knowledge the only milled plates (bar Ivanko or eleiko) available in the UK. ...except they have now stop production of this style, which is a major shame. Heres why;

    The pics above only show a few of my plates, and some may remember they were taken on the days I bought them. They took a period of a few weeks to aquuire from sets all around the country (I did a lot of driving).

    The scales I'm using are nothing special. They are Salta (no idea which model), and only about a month or two old. I started of by making sure the arrow was on the zero, and then checked them against my calibrated eleiko fractional plates as they are the best I have. All was good. I continued to check the zero and calibration after every few plates.



    I then started with the 20s (45s). I did 8 before I got bored. Out of the 8 they were all bang on the money, except for one which came in at 19kg. So I checked it a few more times, marked it up with a carpenters pencil and moved on.







    The 15kgs were almost just as good with only 1 disscrepency out of the 4 plates. One was out by half a kg, but all the rest were exact.

    10s and 5s were all good

    I measured the 2.5s all in one go, and they were about quarter of a kg out. So I measured them individually and could not find the discrepency.

    I did the same with the 1.25s only they were bang on the money.

    Heres the hard copy of the results I achieved. I am very happy with them, I expected all the plates to be a little out, but in truth is was just the odd one. I just wish I could have weighed my york fitness plates, the results would have been comical.



    20KG
    ----------
    7 x 20kg
    1 x 19kg

    15KG
    ----------
    3 x 15kg
    1 x 14.5kg

    10KG
    ----------
    4 x 10kg

    5KG
    ----------
    8 x 5kg

    2.5KG
    ----------
    8 x 2.5kg

    1.25KG
    ----------
    8 x 1.25


    Body Power / Fitness Warehouse- If you have any sense, you will bring these plates back now!! They are true quality.

    Those plates look amazing, very complete set too. Too bad you couldn't weigh your old plates - but then again, we already know the results. lol

    Thanks man. Its a total of about 3 whole sets + about 8 extra 45s. This was one of the reasons I thought the consistancy would be all over the place.

    I've wanted to weigh my plates for years, so this thread gave me a great excuse. Those plates were just a small sample so I'll have to weigh the rest some time soon. I'm on the lookout for another 19kg plate to match the one I have. That way I can just stick them on the inside of one of my pre loaded bars and forget about them.

    I reckon one of the York Fitness plates will be about 8kgs under weight. brokenweight.jpg

    As promised, here is my set of Hampton plates:



    It includes four 45s, two 35s, three 25s, seven 10s and one 2.5. Total weight is 397.5 lbs

    Results for 45s:

    1) 44.860 or -0.31% deviation
    2) 46.500 or +3.33% deviation
    3) 47.240 or +4.98% deviation
    4) 44.280 or -1.60% deviation

    Average weight: 45.720 or +1.60% average deviation, 2.56% true deviation






    Now 35s

    1) 36.240 or +3.54% deviation
    2) 35.140 or +0.4% deviation

    As I have only two 35lbs plates, I decided not to calculate averages.





    Results for 25s

    1) 25.040 or +0.16% deviation
    2) 24.720 or -1.12% deviation
    3) 25.280 or +1.12% deviation

    Average weight: 25.013 or +0.05% average deviation, 0.8% true deviation





    Now 10s

    1) 9.720 or -2.8% deviation
    2) 10.000 or 0% deviation
    3) 10.120 or +1.2% deviation
    4) 10.880 or +8.8% deviation
    5) 9.960 or -0.4% deviation
    6) 10.440 or +4.4% deviation
    7) 9.820 or -1.8% deviation

    Average weight: 10.134 or +1.34% average deviation, 2.74% true deviation




    I have only one 2.5lbs plate in my Hampton set. It weighed 2.560 or +2.4% deviation.

    That's it. As I said before, please, take the averages with a grain of salt as the sample size is too small.

    ...and tested by time.

    For some reason I like old plates with chipped-off paint and some rust on them. They remind me the ones from AnimalPak wallpapers.

    Awesome set man. Sucks to be missing a 25'er and the little 2.5er, though. Luckly, I'm missing the 25 from my Weider set as opposed to my Ivanko. Whew.

    As a cautionary note, I was short on 5s. I had two sets of my old Ivankos, but somehow during a move all of the 5s disappeared. I noticed I could've used a couple more 2.5s, as well. A short time later, and I score over 800 pounds of plates -- including plenty of 5s and 2.5s.

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    This evening I weighed my Cap plates.



    My Cap set consists of ten 45s, four 25s, four 10s, five 5s and six 2.5s. Total weight is 630 pounds.

    As always scale calibration was confirmed before starting weighing.


    Results for 45lbs:

    1) 46.320 or +2.93% deviation
    2) 43.340 or -3.69% deviation
    3) 45.600 or +1.33% deviation
    4) 46.400 or +3.11% deviation
    5) 46.340 or +2.98% deviation
    6) 45.600 or +1.33% deviation
    7) 45.020 or +0.04% deviation
    8) 46.860 or +4.13% deviation
    9) 45.280 or +0.62% deviation
    10) 46.100 or +2.44% deviation

    Average weight: 45.686 or +1.52% average deviation, 2.26% true deviation








    Now 25lbs plates:

    1) 22.900 or -8.4% deviation
    2) 25.020 or +0.08% deviation
    3) 25.300 or +1.2% deviation
    4) 24.500 or -2% deviation

    Average weight: 24.430 or -2.28% average deviation, 2.92% true deviation





    Now results for 10lbs plates

    1) 10.240 or +2.4% deviation
    2) 9.560 or -4.4% deviation
    3) 9.880 or -1.2% deviation
    4) 10.240 or +2.4% deviation

    Average weight: 9.980 or -0.2% average deviation, 2.6% true deviation






    Now 5lbs plates

    1) 5.000 or 0% deviation
    2) 5.040 or +0.8% deviation
    3) 5.040 or +0.8% deviation
    4) 4.980 or -0.4% deviation
    5) 5.020 or +0.4% deviation

    Average weight: 5.016 or +0.32% average deviation, 0.48% true deviation





    2.5lbs plates

    1) 2.480 or -0.8% deviation
    2) 2.480 or -0.8% deviation
    3) 2.520 or +0.8% deviation
    4) 2.580 or +3.2% deviation
    5) 2.520 or +0.8% deviation
    6) 2.560 or +2.4% deviation

    Average weight: 2.523 or +0.92% average deviation, 1.47% true deviation

    This concludes weighing of my Cap plates.

    I also have a set of Barbell plates (by Cap), but didn't include them in this batch as I consider these "Barbell-by-Cap" plates to be different ones.

    Again, excellent post Jetigen. Some may say this is not a big enough sample to be a conclusive test, but compared to your Ivankos, we can see a pattern here. Good job.

    Here is my set of Barbell plates (by Cap):



    The set includes two 45s, two 35s, two 25s, two 10s and four 5s. Total weight is 250 pounds.

    I did averages only for 5lbs plates as I only have two of each in other increments.


    Results for 45lbs plates

    1) 46.260 or +2.80% deviation
    2) 45.880 or +1.95% deviation






    Now 35lbs plates

    1) 34.700 or -0.86% deviation
    2) 35.120 or +0.34% deviation






    Here are 25lbs plates

    1) 25.240 or +0.96% deviation
    2) 25.180 or +0.72% deviation






    10lbs plates

    1) 10.460 or +4.60% deviation
    2) 10.300 or +3.00% deviation





    Results for 10lbs plates

    1. 4.820 or -3.60% deviation
    2) 4.960 or -0.80% deviation
    3) 5.360 or +7.2% deviation
    4) 5.160 or +3.20% deviation

    Average weight: 5.075 or +1.50% average deviation, 3.70% true deviation




    That's it for this set.

    I liked the red color on old school plates. It's almost like they were yanked out of that old rusty fire hydrant.

    Bought 65lbs safety squat bar. Love it. But I encountered problem using plates and collars with it. My Ivanko's won't fit. Cap and GoldGym's plates with cast holes fit just right. So, lower end plates are not always such a bad thing to have.
