Rogue Deep Dish Plate - Arnold Edition

The Rogue Arnold Deep Dish Plate is a special premium variant of our existing 45LB Deep Dish Plate. The design is directly modeled after the machined steel plates we’ve produced for the Elephant Bar Deadlift event at the Arnold Strongman Classic, but it’s cast by one of our American foundry partners, allowing us to offer an official Arnold plate for the first time to our customers.

Distinguished by the iconic Schwarzenegger silhouette embossed between the weight indications, each Rogue Arnold Deep Dish Plate also includes a machined outer rim, back face, and center hub in the vintage style, with a 450mm outside diameter, 50mm width, and a strict weight tolerance of +2% / -0%. They are available to order as singles or in packs, and are produced exclusively in the 45LB weight increment.

The Benefits of the “Deep Dish”
The extra-wide “deep dish” design of these plates instantly harks back to the classic cast iron plates of the past, which were used for all Olympic lifts before the first bumpers were invented in the 1960s. Historically, deep dish plates were favored more for functionality than aesthetic, as their increased surface area minimized the damage to old-school wooden platforms and rubber mats when dropped—but over time, they grew to be equally prized for their vintage appearance. With Rogue’s Deep Dish Plates, we have recaptured the iconic look and feel of that era while also utilizing the latest in modern casting, machining, and finishing methods, producing plates that are much more resilient than the ones that inspired them.

We developed this first-ever Arnold Deep Dish Plate with Cadillac Casting, Inc., a Michigan-based foundry backed by nearly 100 years of history in metal casting and an unmatched reputation for quality. As with our E-Coat Kettlebells (which they also produce), Cadillac casts each Arnold Plate from ductile iron, which has a higher tensile strength and yield strength than standard gray iron, along with superior corrosion resistance. Precision machining on the entire back, center hub, and outer rim of each plate ensures a uniform diameter and secure fit on the bar, and the electrically applied E-coat finish goes on thinner than a traditional powder coat, allowing for a lustrous finish without losing the underlying texture of the casting. E-coat is also known for its excellent adhesion, even coverage, and overall toughness.

Note: *Due to the casting process, cast products may have minor variances in the finish.

Key Features of the Rogue Deep Dish Plates - Arnold Edition:

Modeled After the Arnold’s Elephant Bar Plates
1

Modeled After the Arnold’s Elephant Bar Plates

If you’ve seen the strongest men on Earth take on the Elephant Bar Deadlift at the Arnold Strongman Classic, then you’ve seen the plates we built for that event and the direct inspiration for these Arnold Deep Dish Plates. The only difference is that these commercial models are cast through traditional methods by our friends at Cadillac Casting, rather than machined from chunks of steel. As a result, we’re able to offer our Arnold plates, complete with the official Arnold silhouette logo for the first time to our customers.

Made in the USA

Made in the USA

Longtime Rogue partner Cadillac Casting, Inc. (Cadillac, MI) has designed and produced a wide variety of complex and safety-critical components for the automotive industry and other industrial clients since the 1920s. This reputable, privately owned foundry employs 400 highly skilled workers, and was more than equipped to produce the tooling for our standard Deep Dish and Arnold Deep Dish Plates. Cadillac is playing a key role in bringing quality cast iron weight plate production back to the USA.

Ductile Iron
3

Ductile Iron

Every Arnold 45LB plate is cast in ductile iron, aka nodular cast iron, which contains strong graphite nodules that make it considerably tougher than standard gray iron. Ductile iron is regularly used to make automotive components, wheels, gear boxes, and machine frames, and its superior tensile strength, yield strength, and corrosion resistance makes it an ideal option for a long-lasting, extremely robust weight plate.

Precision Machining
4

Precision Machining

The entire back portion of each Arnold Deep Dish plate is precision machined, as is the center hub (where the bar sleeve goes through) and the outer rim. This unique 3-surface machining process ensures that the plates fit tightly on the bar, are uniform in diameter, and sit flush against each other when loaded. The black E-Coat finish goes on thinner than powder coating, and offers excellent adhesion, even coverage, and reliable corrosion resistance. Users can also expect a smooth feel that retains more of the natural grit of the casting.

Nothing Great
I fell for the hype. Rogue is flooding the market so they aren’t very collectible to me anymore. The quality is nothing like you would have thought just a basic cast weight like every other company produces. Save your money they truly are nothing special you can put anyone’s name on the image shown on the plates. I would say spend the money on higher grade plates and forget about these.

Instant classic with some quality control concerns
These 45 pound Arnold Edition deep dish plates are a good idea but the quality control on these are less than my other set of rogue deep dish plates with the same concerns shared by other customers with uneven finish and scratch in the center hole. This is not average rogue quality, hence a two star rating. Hopefully they will not scratch up the bar as I plan to use them.

Had high hopes...
I read the other reviews but was swayed by the promises to correct the issues. I can live with the inside cylinder hook marks even though we shouldn't have to, but the paint gouge / scrape on the outer lip just doesn't make sense. How could such a visible paint defect be missed by quality control on a premium product with a premium price tag. Disappointing.

Love them!
Very satisfied with the plates! They were shipped with care and they shipped them out the same day. The castings are about perfect on the pair I got. They really are about flawless, almost makes me not want to lift with them😂.

Well made plates
I just received these plates and I'm pleasantly surprised. The machining is top notch and the casting/machining of the Arnold figure is perfect. The weight of these plates is just a fraction over 45 lbs and the two plates weight exactly the same amount.
