Default Werksan Economy Training Bumpers

Just wondering how thick these plates are ?
Are they in between comp plate thickness and the kraiburg bumppers ?
Are they all the same size or varies ?

Post a link, helps!

While nice, look way overpriced for just practicing, I prefer the Wright Exercise bumpers for their economy. I bought over 500 pounds of plates for $500. You'd only get 4 plates for $500 of those.

I have some of the werksan econ bumpers and they are sweet. They used to be werksans training bumpers until they went to the new style about two years ago maybe a year. They are thinner than kraigburgs but thicker than thier new training bumpers. I like them alot and would buy some more. The customer service at Werksan is outstanding. I have 25s, 20s and 10s and change. It is a matter of what you think you would like. Won't really know till you get some. I bought some CAP rubber 45s and they were okay, but I like the Werksans way better.

Thanks George and Joe sorry forgot the link.
I have kraiburgs and like them but they take up a lot of room on the bar, would be nice to have some coloured ones .
