Better than I was expecting.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scorpion Power Lifting Pair of Padded Heavy Duty Weight Lifting Hooks (Misc.)
I don't often add a review but I felt the need to counterpoint the 2 star review that I saw here when I was buying.
I lost 1 of my wrist straps when moving leaving me with just 1. After a couple weeks of doing squat with no support, and having to stop because of my grip, not my legs, I got mighty frustrated. I wanted something quicker than a strap but with which I could still basically hold onto the barbell/dumbbell. These were ideal and cheep to boot.
Getting your initial hold on the dumbbell can be a bit awkward at first. Your thumb get's in the way if you want it the opposite side of the bar to your other fingers, in a natural hold. For this reason alone I'd knock off half a star, but really I can't see this problem being overcome by any other hooks, and it's fine once you get used to it.
Otherwise the product works perfectly, allowing me to work my legs to fail during squats and calf raises. I've been using this with 2 x 50kg dumbbells and there is absolutely no sign of damage on the hooks themselves. I see no reason to fork out more for more expensive weight hooks.
