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.
Got this for $170 and it's all I need and more. Thank you
Awesome starter set. Handle weights are great, Olympic bar is one piece. Can’t beat the quality and the price. Couldn’t find it any less expensive anywhere else, or used !
It’s a great Olympic sized weight bar and set, and it’s price can’t be beat.
I can honestly say that I am so happy I pulled the trigger on this weight set. Actually got it on sale!
I was looking 300 lb. weight sets from other brands and was shocked to see as much as a 5x, 6x, even 7x the amount of the Sears Weider set. C'mon it's just weight. I know other brands have bragging rights when it comes to quality... but it doesn't really matter with plates. Slide em on the bar and....lift !! Satisfied customer.
