Caveat: a 40 pound set is not much weight - I figured it would be plenty for me as I'm just getting into this, but actually my wife's outgrown them as well.
Thing is, the bar weighs 5 pounds, you get 15 pounds of assorted weight for each of the two bars, total 40 pounds, this allows you to set up from 5 to 20 pound dual dumbbells or a single up to 35 pounds - not quite enough to get there from here.
Plan on adding a few more 5 pounder or 10 pounders to it, is all - they are available separately so no big deal. I've set these bars up with 65 pounds of weights with no problem using 10 pounders.
The bars are good quality and have rubber washers to lock the weights in place.
For some exercises the 14 inch bars get in the way compared to simple hex dumbbells, and it does take a while to change weights between moves, but it's tolerable, especially compared to blowing $500 on adjustable weights with plastic adjustment tabs, no less.
For the price, keep a couple sets around - you get more versatility in weight, and you get the ability to set up 2 sets for yourself at a time - allowing quicker workouts at the weight of your choosing without investing in a zillion separate dumbbells.
Would definitely do again.
1. Smell: These weights do not smells like daisies; no dumbbells do. However, the smell is NOT as bad as people are saying. I would highly recommend leaving these weights outside (and/or washing them) to let them air out and control the smell, but it is not immediately overpowering. When the package arrived I slowly opened the box waiting for a toxic stench to explode out, but it never came. It was not until I lifted a plate out of the box that I noticed the smell people mentioned (the chemical applied to prevent rust), and it was not very strong. I left mine in the garage to air out and noticed a slight change in the smell of the garage, but nothing extreme. I would certainly keep them out of the house to be safe, but for $40 a quick wash or airing out was worth it to me.
2: Quality: If you are looking for professional dumbbells that are made of top quality materials then look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a solid set of starter weights, this is your product. I will say that the first time I removed a collar a small piece of metal broke off, but it did not affect the functionality of the piece. Also, I noticed someone mentioned that the collar lets the weights slide...this was incorrect in my experience.Read more ›
As another reviewer states, having a few more weight plates around is convenient. I bought an extra four 10# plates on sale at the local sports store. Any standard 1" ID plate will work. The total cost of this set plus the extra plates was still less than 1/4 the cost of an adjustable set, and suits my needs just fine.
Quality: **** This set is pure iron: Black painted cast iron plates. Standard iron/chrome plated diamond textured handle grips. And chrome plated screw caps.
Some people have complaint about the rubber washers in between the cap screws and the plates falling out, which is true since they are not glued to the cap screws or plates. This is not a problem however since the rubber washers are completely unnecessary. I removed them and put them back in the case. The caps tighten just as well without the washers.
Some people also complain that the weights become loose and start to "clang" in the middle of your set. I actually have experienced this too, but maybe only 1/10 times I'm working out, and remember this is WITHOUT the washers that I take out. And if it does become loose, I just tighten them when I'm done. IT'S NOT A BIG DEAL. These are light weights and they're not going to fall off the handle. Sometimes I don't even tighten it - I actually like the sound of the iron clang.
Some people also comment that the weights smell like gasoline. Let me set this straight: The weights have no scent. The case, however, has somewhat of a metal/plastic odor - the same type of smell of all the weight machines when you go to the gym. Believe it or not, the smell might actually subconciously help motivate you to work out harder. But it is not a bad smell, like the guy next to you at work.Read more ›

This is a great starter set. Easy to change out the plates but because they have screw on collars rather than pins they do loosen up a little every now and then.Published 9 days ago by Jamie B.
