Attractive, pricey, slightly inaccurate
9 May 2018
Looks good. Pricey (bought it for Rs 5499, or Rs 183 per kg). Seems slightly inaccurate in weight.
Used a simple Omron weighing scale to weight them. One of them weighed 15.3 kg while the other one weighted 15.5 kgs. To reduce bias used the same scale at the same spot for weighing Cockatoo's round 12.5 kg set. They each weighed 12.7 kg. It that set is accurate, the 15 kg set is overweight by 0.1 and 0.3 kg respectively. Tolerable for amateurs like me but for professional who knows?
Pricing: Below is a list of different sets I have bought and the price per kg for each of them:
2.5 kg * 2 set : Local store : Rs 135 per kg
5 kg * 2 set : Ecowellness : Rs 1952 or Rs 195 per kg
7.5 kg * 2 set : Local store: Rs 135 per kg
10 kg * 2 set : Kore : Rs 2559 or Rs 128 per kg
12.5 kg * 2 set: Cockatoo round one: Rs 4780 or Rs 191 per kg
15 kg * 2 set: Cockatoo this one: Rs 5499 or Rs 183 per kg
17.5 kg * 2: Bodystation: Rs 4549 or Rs 130 per kg
20 kg * 2 set (on order): Cockatoo Rs 7504 or Rs 188 per kg but including 10% cashback offer on digital payments Rs 170 per kg
(20 kg pair is also very accurate - 20 kg and 20.3 kg. They came in two separate boxes making it convenient to handle. Attractive too.)
Seems like Cockatoo brand is slightly expensive. They look nice though and worth it.
Note: Earlier to save money bought 20 kg pairs from Dreamfit for Rs 4941 (or Rs 124 per kg) and later Hawkish for Rs 6364 (or Rs 159 per kg) but on receiving found they weigh only 18 kgs per piece. Probably they bought from China 40 pounds ones at heavily discounted prices and relabeled them as 20 kgs. Am returning them which is a big headache and money refund of money takes time. So decided to continue with trustworthy brands like Cockatoo and bought 20 kg pair this weekend (June 9-10 2018) .
