Look, this product is by far one of the cheapest you can find on the market and it gets the job done. If you're actually lifting, then it's perfect for you. For those who complain about the noise it makes when putting the weights on the bar must be casuals..Those rivets on the bar are to keep the weights from sliding so they serve their purpose. I'm sure there is nicer painted sets and fancier bars, but realistically why should that matter if all you're doing is trying to build muscle or tone your body.
I would have given the item 5 stars if the ends of the barbell weren't grooved. When the plates are put on and taken off the bar, the ends of the barbell are like a rasp that sands the paint off the weight plates. This leaves paint dust on my floor and my hands. It exposes the metal and will lead to rust. Plus, every time I put a plate on it sounds like i'm playing a washboard. I've never seen a barbell like this before, ever.
Exactly as described
for the money it's the best set i would buy again
I've read some of the other reviews about the ridges on the bar and yea...a little annoying. Also the reviews about the knurling being a little too much, maybe. But for the money, I'm extremely happy!! The clips hold the weights nicely, the bar seems well built. Its a great starter set on a budget.
Shipment came without spring collars. Coustomer service would not send them to me. They said i had to send it back and wait for it to return for them to send me another shipment. Would not other from there again. Weights and base were fine.
The weight set is a great product, but sears customer service and online platform is much to be desired. The pick up process was fast and easy with their in car pick up. They had the order brought out to my within 2 minutes of me arriving.
