Just received the 4x5kg cast iron discs to replace my vinyl stock of the same weight category, at first glance I was impressed as they are exactly as described and are suitable for the 1 inch diametre, 14inch long spinlock York dumbell bars I had already.
They come in a box of four 5kg discs which gave the local postman a slight shock as he went to lift them out of the van and apart from this each is cast with the weight and York logo clearly visible on each side of the disc.
Being thinner than my vinyl weights allows you to stack more weight on each dumbell bar which is an obvious advantage and the reason for the purchase.
I've deducted one star as the black paint is slightly powdery and rubs off on the hands when first using the discs, however a good rub of a damp cloth and this problem is easily solved. Overall very good quality product but make sure your aware your bars diameter size prior to ordering, i.e. standard=1inch olympic=2inches!

I bought the 4 x 5kg weights to add to my 20kg York dumbell set bought from Amazon. Just before paying £30 for them on Amazon, however, I checked Argos and found they were available for just under £25. Turns out they've both gone out of stock today so I'm made up I took the plunge and bought them!

It's worth pointing out that the discs do look different to the product picture here (not sure if it's just the lighting though). They are identical in finish to the discs in the afforementioned 20kg York dumbell set. Basically matte black with a slightly rough surface. A small amount of powder-esque substance rubs off at first but a damp cloth will sort this. "York" and "5kg" are cast onto both sides. In my opinion they look pretty tidy as they compliment the chrome dumbell bars I use.

The thickness of the discs is the same as that of the 2.5kg variants: ~ 27mm. I can fit 3 x 5kg discs onto each end of the dumbell with the spinlocks secured. In case you want to know, the diameter of the discs is roughly 190mm. Seems they've manufactured them with a good balance between thickness and diameter. Considering they're made of cast iron, you can slap on a hefty amount of weight without them being overly massive like an equivalent sand-filled disc.

Mine came in a deceptively small cardboard box, which gave the guy at the counter in Argos a shock as he nearly keeled over right in front of me!

Think that covers it; any questions feel free to ask.

They're metal, heavy, round and fit a 1" bar.

If these are not your requirements then you will be entirely disappointed with this product.

I ordered the 4 x 2.5kg set here together with the York 20kg Dumbell set, and am very happy with the lot.

30kg is much better than the 20kg dumbells alone, the extra weight makes all the diffrence.

The product I received was not as shown. It turns out York have changed the design to look considerably less nice, and make it harder for you to slot weights of different sizes together on the bar.

The hole was nearer 1.2" than 1", and on York's own 1" barbells these wobbled and "ate up" the rubber spacers meaning they required regular readjustment to keep them in place, were probably going to destroy the spacers if I kept using them, and would move during exercises. Hassle and potentially unsafe.

The paintwork and moulding were pretty shoddy in comparison to other York weights I've bought recently.

Good cast iron YORK quality nothing wrong there! They fit a standard 1" bar and dumbbells (although does feel a little larger on the bar, so maybe not perfectly 1"). I did notice that a bit of the black did rub off at first but not much and this can be avoided altogether by simply rubbing the weights over with a cloth before use. But if your like me you'll just want to stick them on your bar and start using them because your buying these for the quality (reputable brand) and for the price.

Currently the price for these weights are a lot higher than they were, its hard to find a deal these days where your getting the golden pound per kilo, but they are out there!

I read a lot of people complaining about the quality of the discs and would understand if they came with a hole that was too small or at an angle but mine are fine. Yes the paint comes off and yes they could have been separated in the box so they hadn't rubbed, but seriously they're weightlifting discs! All my discs are rubbed and chipped away, that's because I use them regularly and change the weights as I'm working out.

Overall I'm very pleased with them and they are doing the job, not sure if more expensive and perhaps shiny weights would make any difference other than in my pocket. Need heavier weights for your workout? Buy these!
