Fit: All weights fit on the bar. However, 1 of the 1/4lb weights did not fit perfectly. I had to carefully place on the bar and, with a little back and forth, it now fits better. All other weights go on easily.
Weight: They are quite close to being the correct weight. I think it would be very difficult to get an exact weight each time. I would not be surprised if the larger plates in the gym were not precise.
Here are the true weights of the plates:
These are good enough for me.
I'm really looking forward to using these fractional plates to move the weight up with my 5x5 workouts.
I'll just echo some points that others have already said. The paint on these plates feel a bit soft and rubs off rather easily. The paint almost feel a bit tacky. They left colored streaks on my bar the first time I test fitted them. I feel I could have done a better job myself with some Rustoleum.
Also, one of the blue 1/2 pound plates didn't want to fit on my Pendlay bar. I had to knock off a chunk of paint and then it went on. A couple other plates were tight too. Tight enough that they would be frustrating to change between sets. I'll probably be sanding or grinding down the insides.
Otherwise, I really like these but for over $10 per pound the fit and finish should be much better.
*** Update 2/9/14 ***
After using these plates for a bit some of the initial issues I had seem to be better. The plates now slide on and off the bar much easier. Also, the paint and finish seem to be holding better than they were initially. I wonder if they make these plates to order and the paint just needed more time to cure?
These fractional plates are awesome! I'm going to disagree with some other reviewers about the quality--I really like these plates. I use them pretty regularly and I haven't noticed any paint chipping/fading or the paint being sticky.
Would highly recommend.
With that being said, these are weights and I don't expect them to stay "pretty" forever. The actual weight of each is fairly accurate and they will do exactly what they are designed to do.
So, if you don't care about the appearance of these weights, they are probably one of the best values for fractional weights you will find, especially with free shipping. If you want something that will look perfect out of the box, then look elsewhere. You can find similarly priced fractional weights through other vendors but be prepared to spend an extra $20 or more on shipping.
