Default Any reviews of MHTY rubber bumpers?

I saw some "MHTY" brand bumpers on sale on the Phoenix Craigslist for $2/lb., wanted to know if anyone here had any experience with them...?

Google-fu came up with nothing of note.

Garret,

If your not in a big hurry, you could wait a few weeks for the Pendlay bumpers to come in...

Think colored, look, feel, and thickness of competition bumpers, durability tested by me now for almost a year (10 and 15kg samples)... and price comparable to the thick, black economical bumpers that most are buying now.

And plus they just plain look super cool.

I think I showed a 15kg sample to Gant a few weeks ago.

Glenn,
Right now I'm heavily leaning towards the WFW black rubber bumpers that you guys are selling, they are less expensive than these MHTY and they're from you!

Just wondering on this particular brand for the future.

I need to get some more bumpers for the small OL club I'm starting...I simply don't have enough.

The WFW are being discontinued because the new Pendlay plates are so much better, for comparable price. We do still have some in stock though, I think.

Oh....well then, you may have convinced me to wait the couple weeks. Thanks for the heads-up!
