    And Mr. Miller nailed the stated weights in my set. 100% recommend.

    I wouldn’t get caught up in too much the exact weight of the micro plates. If your squat goes from 225 to 315 did you not get stronger? Maybe the weight is off a little but at the end of the day more weight for most people means healthier people.

    A few years ago I bought a full set of microplates from a regular on this site, and they are exact. I can't for the life of me remember who that was. He made them himself. I'll see if I can search for it.

    I found it: I bought them from Dan Miller a few years back for $35.

    I took mine to work to measure on the calibrated scan, they were insanely accurate!

    If people are content to use two-pound increments and 3-pound increments when they know they should be using 2.5-pound increments, the market will react to that by not insisting on quality. If they send the plates back every time they are off, manufacturers will shape up quick. As some have pointed out here, there are sellers who will get you the plates with the right numbers, so if training increments are important to you then this is an option. If it were me, I’d insist on the right numbers just on principle - not much point in my mind to paying for the things if the weight is going to be off by 25%. It may work, especially at the start, but it’s also not what you paid for, and if you’re not worried about accuracy there’s plenty of things you could use instead that you already have lying around.
