    :werd: deadlifting sucks with them. Plus if either the plate or the sleeve spins when you deadlift, there is a chance that the weights will not land flat. :greddy:

    you cant plate pinch with them either since they dont have a flat side.

    that's every single weight at 24 hour, octagon covered in black rubber with 2 handle holes. I never really thought that having a completely round plate would help any better, i just always lined them up.

    i hate the plates at my gym, they are round but they have to be on a certain way for them to "lock" together. Its hard to explain but they suck ass
