Gtech Fitness® offers a wide assortment of home and commercial cast iron weight plates sold by the pair or in various plate sets to help outfit different applications. We carry low price economy weight plates, wide flange plates, machined plates, and cast iron grip plates. We strive to meet every price range when shopping online for quality cast iron Olympic plates.
Our cast iron plate lines are by popular brand names, such as Body-Solid, Troy Barbell VTX, USA Sports, and York Barbell Company. Pricing varies due to the overall quality of the manufacturing process. For example, economy weight plates hit the lowest pricing possible. So, fewer quality assurance steps are taken in the production process to help lower costs. This process leads to cheap weight plates, but they lack precision, weight accuracy, and higher quality paint finishes that can chip or wear faster over time.
High quality cast iron weight lifting plates offer more machining on more surfaces of the plate as the price increases. The increased machining leads to overall higher precision in the look of the weight plate. Plus, more quality assurance steps keep the weightlifting plates at lower weight deviations, typically around 2% to 3%. Higher quality cast iron plates use better quality paint finishes. They will usually offer a better grip design, either with wider flanges or incorporating actual grips.
Regardless of the cast-iron workout plates or plate sets you choose, Gtech Fitness® offers our best pricing upfront with free shipping to the 48 contiguous United States!
