Features & Highlights
- American Made – The Deep Dish Plates from Rogue are made in Cadillac, Michigan at a foundry with over 100 years of metal casting experience.
- Accuracy – These plates from Rogue have a solid weight tolerance of +2% and -0%.
- Weight Offerings/Hundo Pricing – Rogue Deep Dish Plates can be purchased from 25LB up to 100LB. They don't offer sets, but they do offer Hundo Pricing. Once you purchase at least 250LB of weight, you begin to receive a discounted price.
- Width – One downside of the deep dish plates relative to standard iron or other iron plates is that they're wider, which means you won't be able to load as much on the bar. With the Deep Dishes, you're looking around 600LB capacity vs 900LB+ with standard iron.
- 25LB – 1.35″
- 35LB – 1.35″
- 45LB – 1.97″
- 100LB – 2.95″
- Diameter – The 45LB and 100LB variants both offer standard diameters of 450mm, which means you'll be pulling from a consistent height. Some iron plates are slightly smaller. Plate diameters as follows
- 25LB – 276mm
- 35LB – 360mm
- 45LB – 450mm
- 100LB – 450mm
- Hole Size – The Rogue Deep Dish Plates have a hole opening of around 50.4mm, which creates a very snug and secure fit on the bar.
- Deep Dish – These plates have very deep flanges on the 100LB and 45LB plates that not only look awesome, but that also make it much easier to grip and handle the plates. The other plates do not offer a deep lip, which some users have expressed concern over.
- Aesthetics/Finish – The Deep Dish Plates from Rogue are finished in black e-coat, which is corrosion resistant and evenly applied. It was popularized in the automotive industry and Rogue has since been applying to these plates and some barbells. The deep-dish look is classic and timeless. Simply put, these are some of the best-looking iron plates on the market.
- Consistency – These plates are constructed using a three-surface machining process (back, hub, flange), which creates a very uniform plate.
- Durability/Ductile Iron – Ductile iron differs from cast iron in that it includes graphite nodules that make it substantially more durable. It has better tensile strength, better yield strength, and it's more corrosion resistant. These plates will last a lifetime.
What They're Saying at roguefitness.com
Rogue Deep Dish Plates receive excellent feedback from users. With an average rating of 4.9/5, here are some of the things people have said at roguefitness.com.
- “I've had the 45s for a couple of months now and have to say they look awesome, the machined finish and coating is perfect! They are super easy to handle pulling off the storage pins. One thing I found interesting is the sound they make when you put them on the barbell – they ring like a bell! I never thought I would be saying this about plates, but the look and sound of these get me amped up to work out.”
- “Only had a few weeks but the design and deep lip is awesome. Lip on 25 and 35s are a bit small but still works. Fit and finish is top notch with minimal wobble on the bar. As long as you don’t need to lift >650 pounds (bar sleeve limit), these are terrific. Ductile iron is tougher than cast so they should be able to handle a low drop on a platform from a missed deadlift just fine. These plus rogue change plates are a great combination.”
- “Bought these for my home gym and I'm extremely happy with the purchase. These plates are beautiful and will last my lifetime and several others. Best plates I've ever seen.”
- “Excellent craftsmanship on these USA made plates. With 5pair of deep dish and a 55 lbs bumper, per side, I can stack up to 605lbs on my Ohio Power bar with room for clamps, that should keep me busy for a while.”
- “I love these deep dish plates. I've used urethane (iron grip and umax) plates in the past at my college and local gym, and while I love their easy grip, they have nothing on the deep dish style and all-black finish. It was well worth the wait. I was a bit nervous about the paint chipping but they are solid as heckaloo.”
- “Received these Beautiful Rogue Deep Dish Plates a week ago and they are by far the BEST DEEP DISH plates (that are american made) i have seen. I know because I refurbish York, Zuver and Ivanko plates. That is my job.”
- “I bought these to replace the standard barbell plates I've had for years. The Rogue Deep Dish name applies to the 45s, but certainly not the 25s. Rogue, you killed it with the 45s, I love them. Seriously, I'd give you my money again if your Deep Dish 2.0 has at least a 1″ depth to grab on the 25s. When you make the change plates, please at least make them comparable to the standard barbell dimensions. I look forward to buying them too.”
