The Marcy 2-lb. Grip MAX - the 50lb plate version. It's fantastic. The grip area is wide enought to use as a dumbell. The coating chipped when I dropped it, so the coating is pretty useless. Still, an awesome deal and a great product.
I purchased this single 50-pound Marcy brand weight for the leg extension/curl part of my weight bench. It fits and works exactly as desired. Combined with a few sets of $5/pair dumbbells and spare free weights, I now have a highly functional and compact home gym. The dumbbell pairs also came from Wal-Mart. The most interesting part of this was the shipping. There are no Wal-Mart stores within several dozen miles, so what I buy has to be shipped. I had the option of picking them up at the nearest store (a real waste of time and gas) or going to a designated and nearby FedEx drop-off location. No charge for shipping 50 pounds -- a good deal.
I purchased  2.5 lb Grip MAX Standard Plates online at Walmart.com. It was really easy to order. Weight is weight, so nothing special about these plates. The design is pretty good, though not necessary on 2.5 lb plates, heavier plates benefit from having grip holes. I'm not overwhelmed with the paint finish on the plates. It looks like they are finished with a thin matte paint, no baked enamel coating, So, I expect easy scratches and chipping. But, weight is weight and the price/lb ratio is excellent. Like all inexpensive plates, these plates are not exactly as spec'd. There is an ounce or two of variance. I went with free shipping via Fed-Ex store pick up, which is a real bonus. Just remember that you need to print out  separate documents in order to pick up your order, One Walmart.com confirmation of delivery and One Fed-Ex shipping number document.
1 ISSUE... ... I HAD TO SPRAY PAINT it! When I received it, it was all scratched up and the black coating was gone from here and there. But its an excellenet product, no doubtGo buy a good brand of spray paint wth GLOSSY FINISH. You'll see the true beauty of this product!
Great value, much cheaper than most retailers.Easier to handle than most 50 lb.plates
This is an excellent plate, but I mistakenly thought it was an Olympic plate like all the rest of the Marcy grip plates I own. So just be careful when ordering. They are the best of the easy to handle plates.
I intended to use these to make 100 pound dumbells but they were to thick.
Nice weights anyway and a great buy.
