I may be buying a set of competition bumper plates. I'm on the fence about whether I should go metric or non-metric. What do you think, and why?

My current iron plates are all in pounds.

All my iron is in pounds but my bumpers (and the iron that goes with them (all Eleiko but mine is training - not comp)).  Once I got used to it I wish everything I owned was in kilos.

I like metric for general purpose as the plate math is easier. I could also see the math being easier for small amount as metric allows for decimals instead of being pounds and ounces.

Although, personally, I can think in pounds much more quickly, kilos would be easier for comps if that is your intent.

Metric is the choice I go to if I had those types of plates for a contest situation; plus the math is simpler to figure out.

I guess the choice is clear! Thanks, everyone.
