I've been wanting a pair of olympic size dumbbells for years but the stores never carry them in stock. I'm old-school and like to see what I'm buying before I buy. Having said that, I bought these online and am very pleased. It should be highlighted in the ad that these are solid steel, not hollow tubes. That was my main concern and once I found it in the specs, I bought it. If you have olympic plates and are on a budget, these are much cheaper than a set of hex dumbbells.

Best price for a pair of Olympic size dumbbells. Has plenty of room to add your plates. I've added a picture to show you the possibilities. I'm showing these dumbbells holding on one side 4 5lb and 4 2.5lb weights plates and still room for maybe 2 more plates. The other dumbbell has "Fat Gripz" on the handle showing it will fit.

I bought a pair of these to substitute for those real expensive gym quality dumbells with the nice end caps. The bar unloaded is about 9 lbs. I bought a bunch of 5 lb plates (Sports Authority, nice rubber rim casing, 5 bucks a plate) to load them with to keep a low profile. I think they look great and works very well for dumbell chest exercises. I have them loaded with 8 each and can hold up to 12 each for a max of 69 lbs.

No complaints. Smooth online transaction. Considerable savings over similar offerings by other vendors and stores for same quality. Purchased because my solid hex dumbbells are starting to pile up. Same function and saves space.

The ends of these are not hollow like some of the other ones you find. They weigh 10 lbs. each. The collars have been solid so far, and they do not ding up the ends when you tighten them down like I thought they would. They don't slip either.

The bar works fine but the collar that holds the weights on cracked upon tightening on my first use. I guess I overtightened (still felt loose though) and it cracked in half where the bolt screws in and fell off. I bought spring clips to use instead but shouldn't have had to if the product was decent quality. I'll use these until I can find something better.

This is a good product, don't let the title fool you. But there was one small specific issue that I see could be an issue in the future. The collars don't tighten all that well, when the weight is on you can turn the screw all the way because the torquer (not sure if the proper terminology for it) is too long.

I have a very large home gym and I had always wanted a set of these barbells. I held off due to the price at most stores being too high or the quality of the cheaper ones was very poor. These are well mad, very solid, and are well worth the price.

With the weight on the stays don't hold very well so its all a bit jiggly but it will work. Will probably end up buying new end caps.

I'm sure these are good for you basic movements (curls, flys, bench, etc...) but they don't work for any high intensity movements and the collars can strip if you tighten them too much. Gave it 3 stars because it didn't work for what we intended, but would still work for regular strength training use.

The pair that I received are better quality than I expected. With a bit of oil, the sleeves spin smoothly and are not excessively loose fitting. The chrome plating has held up well and not flaked off. The knurling on the handle feels good in the hand, with plenty of texture for a firm grip.

I thought these came in a set. Should of looked a little more closely instead of just assuming I guess. Nice and solid. Ends stay on great. Great feel to it. Now to get another so I can have a set.

I needed heavier weights but I didn't want to spend $40 or more on a single dumbbell that's a set weight. These handles are perfect for setting up a variety of weight combinations. You could put two gigantic 45lb plates on the handles but I would recommend getting a few 10lb plates. You could fit about 5 average sized 10lb olympic weights on each side of the handle. The collars tighten with a nut. Therefore, the plates will not fall off in the middle of your exercise as long as you tighten them enough.

I had the cheapies a few years ago - the kind where the part that holds the weight is flimsy sheet metal that dents when you tighten down the collar. This dumbbell is not like that at all. The part that holds the weight is very thick and sturdy. The collars that come with the dumbbell are the 'screw-down' kind, which are not as convenient to use and others I've used. Mine weighs in at 9 pounds on my digital scale, which is a little annoying - why couldn't they just add an extra pound somewhere? Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase, and glad that I didn't get the cheaper set.

It's a good product for the price. Quality and pretty heavy. The collars that come with it are actually not bad. I only use these handles for exercises in which they stay fairly parallel to the ground (presses, rows), but I would not trust the collars to anything vertical (hammer curls, etc). The worst part is the grip is a bit narrow. If you have very large hands, they would probably not fit within the gripping area of the dumbbell and would uncomfortably press up against the stops. The grip is not nearly as wide as a gym quality dumbbell.
