Fitness Gear 25 lb Standard Cast Plate
Pay attention to this!
Recently I purchased 25 lb and 10 lb plates from DICK'S. What's good - the opening on the plate allows to handle plate very easily, allows to put the chain (using it with dip belt) through them. What's bad - pay attention to this when buying! - 25 lb plates have slightly different diameters: I bought 8 plates, 1 of them I had to exchange. 10 lb plates have different thickness: I bought 8 plates, 3 of them I had to exchange. It is really dissapointing when such great company as DICK'S has so careless ordering managers.
So, plates are good, but you MUST choose plates very carefully and compare them when buying.

The pass through hand holds are an excellent design.

Honesty in Advertising
I bought two of these, and they met my stringent requirements for honesty in advertising. :)
it weighs 25 lbs: Check.
it is made of cast iron: Check.
What else can you say? It's a plate.

Good and Useful Product
I am impressed with this plate's diversity. The picture shows a solid plate but the one's that I bought have three cutouts so that they can be carried more easily but also can be used in Kettlebell type exercises, Dumbbell exercises, and I am sure other creative ways. The reason I bought the type I did was for that simple reason. In the past I bought the standard plates and they work fine but the cutout one's are simply more versatile.

Solid and dependable
I have a few fitness gear weights and needed a 25 lb'er, so I waited to get this one on sale at Dick's online. It was buy one get one free around cyber week. Fitness gear holds up and works well. The feel of the plate is smoother than York's too.
