This review is from: CAP Barbell Cast Iron Hex Dumbbell, Single (Sports)
Solid, balanced dumbbells. Allowed me to cancel my gym membership and and work out at home. I've never been a fitness buff so I'm not suggesting this replaces a gym, but for me it's great. I can pop off a couple sets in the morning, couple more sets at night during a commercial break, do a set of pushups to mix it up, etc.. It adds up.
One minor ding, flecks of paint have chipped off when the ends of the dumbbells touch during a workout, which is a little annoying if you're doing overhead presses, but I'm assuming that will stop as the paint wears off. I read one review that a dumbbell cracked apart during a workout. These are cast metal pieces that have been welded together, the odds are low but it's possible, so I don't let them strike together too hard when I'm exercising.
