Weider is the gold standard in home gym equipment. I paired this with some standard 1" dumbbell handles and a curl bar that I picked up at Sears.com as well. $1 per pound of weight is an excellent choice and you can scale up or down.
Weider 2.5 lb. Standard Handle Plate works well with any other 1 inch handle. It is very universal and can interchange to different weight plate without a problem
