These are more bulky than steel plates so not easy to fit desired weight on a hand bar bell. They come with filler already installed in heavy plastic shell.
For those ladies who have dealt with the proverbial "baby pouch" that just won't go away... this is the piece of equipment to target that area and more! For 26 years I have battled with that one area that just haunted me. Since purchasing and using the UFO I have already shed 1 inch in that area alone. I've also had a knee replacement and other knee is damaged/unrepaired and this "padded" piece of exercise equipment is comfortable to them. Trust me when I say comfortable and easy to use. It is not cheap or flimsy. I give this two thumbs up and wish I'd discovered it many years ago!
Overall not a bad set of bars. The handles can be a bit rough until you have developed some good calluses and/or invested in a good set of gloves (or both). I use mine with a mix of concrete filled plastic weights and steel plate weights. My biggest gripe is that after a few reps, I find that the star wheel gets loose. I had bought some of the spring clips that had worked on my similar star-style barbell, but the diameter of the dumbbells is a little thinner so they don't work either. I just find that I have to tighten up the star wheels in between reps when I am resting. Not a deal breaker, but it would be nice if they locked in place.
Nice solid item, easy to put together, took just 5 minutes. Actual item is slightly different from photo. The pegs are actually black in color and do not have the stainless steel look. Overall, this is a good purchase and should last along time.
