4.0 out of 5 stars Great weight, just a couple of slight niggles with it!, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bodymax Selectabell Dumbbell Pair 5kg - 32.5kg (11lb-71lb) (Misc.)
First and foremost, these weights are great when you need weight. 32.5 KG is far too much for me to curl at the moment, so it certaily fits the bill of giving me plenty of weight.

The lowest setting is 5Kg, so this is far too heavy for my wife for most exercises, but conversely too light for MOST exercises, but certainly enough weight for some!

They work very well in terms of the weight selection, push the button, select weight, and lift. Easy as that.

The weight goes up in 2.5 kg increements, and this is really the first niggle. When you start out, you will be using the 5kg setting for some exercises. Moving up to the next level is 7.5 KG - a massive increase of 50% of weight. On the higher weights it is not so bad - 10 Kg, to 12.5 KG is a 25% weight increase etc as you go up in the weights, but it would have been nice to be able to increase the lower weights by say 1KG, I think that woudl have been far better. Of course there are a lot of plates on the dumbells, so can undertsand why they have to limit the amount of weight to add.

Occasionally the bar gets stuck when putting when changing the weights, but to be honest, a little wiggle and it is all sorted. I have had one issue where it pulled out an extra weight without me noticing.... that could have been a sore toe, but thankfully it was avoided!

Overall, these are a great addition. They are quite long however, so doing a simple curl does throw off the balance a little bit, but this is a small price to pay for the conveniance and space saving - and this is what you pay for for these.

Quite a lot cheaper than others on the market which make them even more attractive!
