StrongArm Competition Collars will complete any set of competition quality powerlifting gear at a reasonable price.
With a full chrome finish and a body made of solid steel, these hefty barbell collars are 2.5kg each and feature a two-piece, easy-to-adjust star design and T-handle to get them good and tight on your bar.
At $75 a pair, these are the lowest price competition style collars you'll find.
Used the collars today for deadlift and they worked great. Held the weights tight against the sleeve and they didn't move.
These comp collars are brilliant. I forgot how nice competition collars were. The lever to tighten it down on the bar is small and thin so I use a small tool to get some extra torque on it. Just as good as any other competition collar I have used. And according to my scale they weighed exactly 2.5kg each.
I had an order pending with another vendor and after waiting for a month I was informed that I wouldn't get my order for another two months. I canceled and started shopping again. Strongarm was definitely on my radar from the beginning but at the time I wasn't ready to purchase. I checked their site and the weights were in stock. I placed my order with Strongarm and within 12 days they arrived. Each plate packed separately in a box with straps on a skid. No scratches or defects. I weighed each plate and all are within specs. You can spend more for a bigger name but Strongarm are my go to for my garage gym needs! Great quality and bang for your buck. Got the collars too. 👍🏿💪🏿Thanks again Mike!
I saw some negative reviews and thought I'd add my positive experience. I needed some inexpensive 2.5kg collars to complete my newly acquired calibrated kg plates and came across these. The collars I received are not the Titex ones noted in the other review, they are non-branded 2.5kg metal competition collars with a thin chrome coating over them. Although they are not in perfect condition, likely from shipping, they are exceptional for the price paid (especially with shipping included to the US - I live in NJ). Comparable collars are at least twice the price.
I expect these to last just as long as any other equipment I have and they are a great addition. Price and value are perfect.
Ordered these, got really beat up Titex collars instead. Figure it out.
