5.0 out of 5 stars perfect, 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: barbell set 60,5kg with with weight discs workout homegym (Misc.)
probably best for curling if you're a big guy with long arms as its not very long if you want to put it on a bench press, however the weight and bar are fantastic and definitely worth the price

This review is from: barbell set 60,5kg with with weight discs workout homegym (Misc.)
Pros - reasonably priced.

Infact everything is good about this is good.
I needed weights, and these are perfect for the spare bedroom or garage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, poor packing department, 20 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: barbell set 60,5kg with with weight discs workout homegym (Misc.)
Background:
been going to the gym regularly for around two years, worked out for a year at home before that i like having decent heavy-ish weights around the house for exercise, i also have the York 20kg dumbbell set with another 20kg in 5kg plates, but however i can't do effective leg workouts at home as lunges take loads of space and a Olympic bar is huge

Price:
Really for 60kg and a bar this is a bargain, look at equivalent vinyl York sets, looking at £100

Bar:
the bar only weighs very little, at first i thought i might have to pick one up and have this for just the plates as it is worth it however i couldn't have been more wrong, it feels well made and certainly ISN'T made of cheese like my suspicions at first, I've had it on 80 kilos(using the 4 5kg plates) and it was absolutely fine. Also its made from three parts that screw together in case you were not aware

Spring locks:
If you're not familiar with weights or are really pushing your max weight at home with or without someone else get some proper 1" decent spring locks, these will make it so they do not move if you use good even form however if you're going to give it more then the very slightest of slants with heavy weight on it the spring locks WILL slide off

Plates: seem decent, don't throw them on the floor and they'll be fine, if you want a weight to throw down on a hard surface you're looking for something called rubber coated weights, all you do dropping them is damage, even the metal disks will damage something if dropped even if not the plates. That being said York plates will eb slightly more heavy treatment fairing but if you look to get something you can abuse a little don't buy cheap

THE ISSUE:
now the spin lock version one review said good but they didn't ship vital bolt(i assume the lock its self) now thinking to myself surely they can't be so dumb as not be able to count to two more than once was i admit a fallacy on my own part. I got shipped everything APART from one bar end. this made the weights unusable, i ordered them on the 6th, they were dispatched on the 8th and i received the incomplete item on the 13th then i received finally the other part on the 20th a week later meaning it takes all in all quite possibly two weeks rather then a few days to receive them.
However their redeeming point was they very quickly dispatched and didn't query the item being missing at all, but two weeks is a long time to wait for a 5 day delivery
