    CAP bumper plates good value?

    These plates all come with free 2nd day shipping so that work out to be ~$1.2/lb. I read they all come within -/+0.5lbs variance which is perfectly acceptable for intermediate lifter. Is there any reason to spend more on higher end plates for bodybuilding workouts?

    I'd had a few and they're fine, just thick like most economy bumpers. If you wait another 5 weeks or so you might find better deals.

    As for a reason to spend more, I'm not sure anyone *needs* bumpers for bodybuilding in the first place, but spending more really just gets you thinner plates or different colors. If you're regularly doing stuff like 405+ deadlifts and want to use only bumpers you'll probably want to spend more on competition plates.

    honestly youre getting what you paid for. We had a couple CAP sets during my time playing football and they broke in half due to dropping of the weight. If you don't drop the weights you should be fine!

    Maybe the Vulcan Alpha Plates will go on sale for Black Friday.
    If not, somebody else's will, so I'd wait and see.
