We are a public school in Texas and most of our student athletes can power clean over 250 so the bumpers take a beating from being dropped repeatedly. We needed to replace some 14 year old bumpers due to cracking. The Troy brand has held up so we wanted to replace to others with Troy brand. Dumbells Direct had the product we wanted and a reasonable price. They were willing to work with us through all the red tape that comes with being a public school (approved vendors, PO, invoicing, etc). Greatest part of it all was how quickly we got the plates to us. Within 10 business days from the first online chat to having the plates in house and working.
