Rogue USA Aluminum Collars
Lock-Jaw PRO 2 Barbell Collar - Quick Release Barbell Clamp
Rogue USA Aluminum Collars is very nice product. It’s always hard to find a decent set of collars at my gym, so instead of spending time hunting for them, I decided to buy my own. I use these at the gym and home for lifts like squats, deadlifts, cleans, and snatches and have had no issues.
I have not noticed any slippage even after dropping several times from an overhead position. The collars take some force to put on but are easy to take off. I have a cheaper set of LockJaw collars that came with my bumper plates, and they are much harder to take on and off.
Other reviewers have stated they have had issues with slippage, most likely that is due to some type of manufacturing issue with the rubber gripping surface inside of the collar. I haven’t experienced this and would have contacted the manufacturer for a replacement if I did. I’d recommend buying these collars; they’re worth the price.Promised Review by Bryon Hundley
