Firstly these dumbbells are VERY well packaged - so don't worry about them not arriving in pristine condition.
They're a very nice looking set of dumbbells and the quality is excellent. The handles and stands are real wood, however the chromed weights are covered with a plastic wood effect laminate - not real wood - but the appearance is quite realistic.
They're accurately manufactured - I weighed the set and a complete dumbbell weighs 10.00kg. Each weight is exactly as stated and the handle with spinlocks is 1.50kg.
The handle, for me, is slightly small in diameter and a bit slippy. Maybe because I'm used to a York knurled handle. My son prefers these wood handles so I can't complain.
The only niggle is that the stands are different shades - one is light-brown and the other mid-brown. Glad they came bundled and I didn't pay full price.
Overall a bit pricey but worth the cost.
