    Question What sort of collars are best? New here, wondering...


    I got a York 7ft 45lb bar I got a while back, I got a pair of unknown brand generic collars...there the 'screw' type collars prolly pressure ring type but they don't have that metal part on the inside new types have. I think there decent and hold the plates just I think they'll mar up the sleeve surface, dose it matter? Was thinking of getting a new pair of updated collars, I don't know if these old things are good or what counts as a good collar. I see several different kinds on Iron Co...just dunno whats good. I lift out doors and in a unheated un ac'd garage on concrete cave man style, so I'm not fancy and don't care to be, just want to know if I'm good and if not I wanna know what could be recommended by a veteran.

    I did a search but found nothing much on the direct topic in question for me, sorry if this post is any trouble new here and did a search but thought my best bet would be a thread. Thanks in advance for any and all advice and help! I do mostly deads atm, if that helps.

    Go to elitefts.com and get some proloc collars. They are top quality and easy to use. You can get a pair for $40 and they will hold up to any punishment you can put them through.
