Was shopping around and the price stood out. Perhaps being a little gullible I had higher expectations for this. It arrived, and the first thing I noticed was how light the box was. After opening it up I had to put one of the end caps back on a dumbell, since it fell off in transit. The bars had a greasy substance all over them and the metal is LIGHTWEIGHT. Think toilet paper holder light. I have no idea how much weight it's tested to hold, I'll doubtfully ever be strong enough to test it, but it does not feel sturdy. The collars seem to do a decent job, but putting weights on, or putting the collars on, can actually scrape away the paper thin "chrome" coat. I'm down to bare metal on several strips. Not a deal breaker, and it does technically hold weight on a bar, which I can lift repeatedly, but if you're looking for a good value, this is not it.
