Good Basic Weight Set
 from Arizona,  Feb 22, 2012

I had read other reviews which said that it was hard to thread the retaining nut on the bar. I spoke to Overstock and they said that if i did have a problem, they would pay for return shipping, so i decided to take a chance. The weights arrived promptly and were easy to assemble. I had none of the problems I read about in other reviews. For a beginner like me, these are great.

These weights are a good deal. However, they are filled with sand, and when my shipment arrived, some of the weights were cracked and sand was leaking out of them. The cracks are fixable with some superglue, but it just shows that these weights are not very well designed and need to be handled carefully.

not a bad starter set
 from Long Beach, CA,  Nov 27, 2012

these are decent for a starter set and the price is not bad for what you get...the bars are very light, not like those at a gym but i found the weights accurate as i got on the scale with each one...the bar weighs less than 5 pounds i believe...for me to get 22 pounds for the dumbbells it required a few plates on each side which makes it a little bulkier than what i'd like...the only other thing i don't like is that you have to thread or screw on and off the ends each time you change plates which can get time consuming...so i bought different ends...overall i'm happy with them for now

  • How accurate was the sizing? accurate

Not Bad!
 from Seattle,  Oct 24, 2009

This is a great value considering how many pieces you actually get! The entire thing came stuffed into one relatively small 100 pound box so be sure you have help carrying it inside.The plates are pretty thick and needed to be dusted off but they are just fine.The bar has to screwed together. The two ends connect to the smooth center bar. I have to check them often as it seems that they don't stay tight.The screw on type of clamp is a bit of a hassle. I actually purchased a set of the squeeze on clamps to use instead for just $2 a piece at a fitness store.The bar is lightweight and I wouldn't feel comfortable loading it with too much weight as I think it may bend at the seams, but it is perfect for lighter weight workouts.I ordered a couple and then ordered a couple more for my training business. For the price, it's tough to beat.
