The weight plates are just as described - PVC filled with whatever to make them heavy. The rods are not so good, the plastic nuts are useless and in just less than 2 weeks these nuts have gone bad and don't keep the weights in place while you are working out. Spare nuts are not available, you are forced to but a new set of rods.
Everything looked good until I found one adjustable knob is defective.So I now have only 1 dumbbell that can be used. And the other 1 is a waste because weights easily fall from one side of the ROD of the said dumbbell as the knob that is supposed 2 tightly bind the weights onto that side is defective.
If they reach u safe and secure with no transport damage they are amazing. Packing and delivery was good. Only con being the screws. They buckle up really slow. But if you are fitness freak go for it. Your passion for sure would be bigger than the minor issues. Workout hard... Overall good product.
The dumbel bars are broken on delivery, plastic is of cheap quality don't buy the product. Not sure when the dumbels will break, seems they have a plastic sheath and inner content is rubber powder or sa d etc... The weights are not solid... Better check the quality and buy.
