Rated 3 out of 5 by Jayat50 An improvement from the old style plates
The Golds Gym olympic plates is manufactured by Caps Barbell. The new style with the 3 holes for transporting is an upgrade from the old style. The base of the 2 inch hole allows you to use quick lock collars without problems.
The set is great for home use and the value for the money is just as good. I have no problem recommending this set.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Angelnms For some reason it does not go on my olypic bar the hole is too small just thought it would fit on my bar but, it does not.
Rated 5 out of 5 by awahili Excellent addition to basic Olympic Weight Set
This 50 pound Gold's Gym Olympic plate set is an excellent addition to the basic 300-lb Olympic weight set for anyone wanting to add more Olympic weight plates. The set allows the training to increase at a realistic pace. The need to continually change plates from dumb-bells to easy curl bar, back to the Olympic bar becomes unnecessary.
My recommendation is to add 2 Gold's Gym 50-lb Olympic Plate sets before adding the larger plates, i.e., 25, 35, 45-lb Olympic Plates.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nonshaver I did read the other reviews and were a little nervous but decided to purchase anyway. They arrived well packaged and in excellent condition. The weights fit the bar and I am very happy.
Rated 3 out of 5 by blacktruck very good for the price yellow paint on the weights look a little cheap but i didn't buy them for the paint job overall very solid easy to handle with the grip holes cut out that's what i like the most
Rated 4 out of 5 by TNAUTH not bad for the price
This is an awesome buy for the price. If you were to buy these anywhere else you would have to pay for shipping and that would be extremely expensive. I looked around for a about a week and the site to store option makes it very cheap. I gave it only a 4 star and not a 5 because when i open the box and pulled the weights out the one of the 5 pound weights were broke at one of the handles. i am going to use some guerrilla glue but they should make sure to package these things better during the shipping process because the package was a mess which kinda scared me at first. Overall well worth the money and despite what other reviews say all of my weights fit on my bar.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cowboytroop Best Bang for the "Buck"
I received my weights on 4-27-12. You cant beat the product for the price. They are not # 1 made plates by any means but they are definitely worth the price for a garage weight room. The only thing I would have liked them to be incased in rubber. They were placed on my Cap 7' bar with no problem. The plates do not have the best paint job in the world but they are adequate for my needs. I have hoped this was helpful. I would buy the samed product again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsSmith5308 Great
These are great the handles make it easier to move them great because you can bulid up to desired weight rather than slapping on a 25 or 45 lbs plate ect cant beat the price for brand new weights and had no problem at all slide right on my olympic bar. Very satified with product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KGBSU Good Value
These weights work just fine. They fit on my bar well, and work like weights should. They are a little gritty inside of the hole to go on the bar, but they are cheap weights so that's what I expected. Overall these are a great value and will work just fine!
Rated 5 out of 5 by FlashD Excellent product
Great value for the money. I checked on a similar product at a leading sporting goods store and the cost was double what I paid for it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by rekhavc Easy handling
The weights just slide on and with the hand holes in the weights you can put two on at a time.
Being made of steel they are smaller and take up much less room as well.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Yoopergirl76 Low Quality!!
Very low quality, 2 of the weights would not even fit onto bar because the holes were too small. Returned them and got my money back. Will be buying the Marcy brand next time.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Eivo Good Deal!
It's heavy and the hole is in the right place. That's about all you can ask from a weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by agentac Excellent weight set. Great quality.
This is a very nice weight set and is made very well. It will last many years. Shipped straight to my door in less than 24 hours, I was amazed!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Technologist Good value for money but subpar quality.
I purchased this as an addition to my existing weight set. While adequate for the intended purpose, the plates were packed/shipped with the paint not fully cured (dried), causing the weights to stick and mar the finish. I did not experience this with my original Gold's Gym set.
The resulting cosmetic defects weren't sufficient to inconvenience myself with a warranty replacement.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HGrat You can't go wrong with GOLDS!
After deciding to bring the gym "home", I knew I would need to start buying all the plates, bars, etc. Even after working out in the local gyms for over 20 years, I really had no idea what plates, dumbbell's, etc. cost. WOW!!! I had no idea!!! No wonder the gyms in our area charge outrageous fees. Guess it now makes sense. Anyway, I did my research comparing brands such as Weider, Olympus, Marcy, and so forth. It seemed that everyone was about the same price, which was disappointing. I then thought, "I wonder if Walmart sells this kind of thing?". not only did they but their pricing is waaay less than the others I looked at. My first concern was, are these going to be TRUE weighted type plates? After I received them, I used my home scale and yup, sure enough, every single plate was what they advertised. For the price, I have ZERO complaints. Each plate fits the 2 inch bar perfectly. The only thing "Aesthetically displeasing" was that the yellow that is painted on the GOLDS name, looked like it had just been painted on and was kinda runny. not sure if excessive heat in the back of a freight truck would do this but who cares. You are using them to build muscle not taking pictures of them for some magazine. I will now continue to buy ALL my home gym equip. from Walmart!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by fractureman weights are well made and easy to handel.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rockdogu Very nice set
Very nice olympic set. Goes great with my Golds smith machine.
Rated 4 out of 5 Can't beat the price
I shopped around everywhere and you just can't beat the price of these weights. Especially since its hard to find a place that sells weights that is close by and it costs an arm and a leg to ship weights due to their intentional mass. It does the job, hasn't rusted yet so I'm completely satisfied.
Rated 5 out of 5 by waryone Good Buy
I got two of these to go with my 300lb set. The weight is accurate and now I have more flexibility with my curl bar and bench bar so I don't have to strip the bar all the time. The weights are just a little loose on the bar but the keeper holds them just fine. The finish is very good.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JackBour Not rocket science but weight plates. Price was the main thing. Plates are a good value for the money. Ordering online and picking up at the store saved time. Good buying experience.
