This review is from: Weight Lifting Hooks - PRO- ELITE- Black Leather (Misc.)
Very disappointed. This is the first time I have tried hooks, to try and get more out of back and leg excercises.

Was trying to decide between straps or hooks as my grip always tires before my workout has reached its potential - went for hooks, and ordered these ones.

Have to admit, I didn't have massively high expectations considering the price - thought I might get a few months usage out of them to find out if I liked the way they work, before investing in some more expensive ones.

Have to say that on the positive side, they arrived quickly, and were well packaged. Also, they certainly do look impressive - substantial leather straps and strong looking steel claws - however, they fell apart during my very first workout using them. We are not talking massive heavy loads here either - dumbell shrugs with about 22 kilos on each arm.

2 of the three rivets that hold the claws onto the leather disintigrated on one hand, and one of the three so far on the other.Wouldn't risk using them again in case they fail unexpectedly when I am using a heavy weight - could do without broken feet from falling weights!

So, in short, avoid - I am not sure what these would be good for really, unless you have some sort of hand or wrist injury and just want to work some really small weights for some reason. Waste and now in the bin :(
