Reasonable quality and will do the job purchased for.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just think they would have been a better product it they were shorter in lenght
These dumbbell bars are ridiculous, if your going to use them for home use they are far to big/long. They are about 20 inches long and the plates that go on them even the 5kg plates are to big which recticts you when doing certain exercises/movements.
Another thing as well is you need to use an allen key size, half an inch to tighten then up when they come loose...

This review is from: MAXSTRENGTH Olympic Dumbbell Bars 5 cm Barbell Weights with Spring Collars Home Gym Weightlifting Training Exercise Workout Pair - Chrome, 2 Inch (Sports)
Reasonable quality and will do the job purchased for.

Plate area is machined to increase grip on plates and spring collars, this made it a little sticky when using the provided spring collars although on the flip side this does prevent them slipping off.

Grip is knurled and on the pair I received the knurling is very pronounced so with heavier weights you will need a manly set of callouses or a pair of good gloves.

These are on the shorter scale of bars so plate area is quite small so limited to beginner to intermediate lifters for weight. Also the grip area is also smaller further limiting heavier lifting for exercises such as curls and extensions. Presses/flyes/raises will get a little more use out of them.

No corrosion on the set I received, occasionally with cheaper brands you see corrosion from warehouse storage and transportation from the factory.

Overall not bad for the price. One note is packaging, being heavier items nearly every purchase has not been packed adequately, in my case the spring collars holed the box and tried to escape.

Do what they say on the tin. you can load these up pretty heavily but i would recommend wearing gloves the heavier you go. Sometimes the spring collars can get in the way when bicep curling but this is solved with turning them around 180 degrees each set.

5.0 out of 5 stars All as it says, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MAXSTRENGTH Olympic Dumbbell Bars 5 cm Barbell Weights with Spring Collars Home Gym Weightlifting Training Exercise Workout Pair - Chrome, 2 Inch (Sports)
The packaging was just a cardboard box, no additional padding or anything, but the dumbbell handles arrived spotless, shiny, solid feeling and the verified weight i get is within 60 grams of the announced weight (for the dumbbell farthest away from claimed weight). So everything is lovely about this product, no surprise, and the price is very good !

Definitely recommended

2.0 out of 5 stars Just think they would have been a better product it they were shorter in lenght, 19 July 2014

Another thing as well is you need to use an allen key size, half an inch to tighten then up when they come loose. Just think they would have been a better product it they were shorter in lenght, say 14/15 inches long still have enough move for plenty of wieght/plates and collars.

Just to add as well the packaging was just a cardboard box and when it was delivered I could see the cardboard had started to split and could see the dumbbells coming through the box.

Overall I'm not happy with the product buts that just me, so use your own judgement when buying.
