Rated 5 out of 5 by Heather Easy to use
Easy to switch between weight levels. Wish I had bought sooner. Very comfortable on hands, easy to grip, square design is not weird at all. Actually, the square design is great--I like that they don't roll off the table and hit my cat who always wants to work out with me. Really wish there was a way to extend weights with out having to buy the one up to 50 pounds. Plate mates are expensive. An extender pack would be fantastic.

Read several reviews on all different weight sets, and these got the best, so went ahead and ordered them. I am in love! They are so quick and easy to change the weight setting. I'm using them for CLX, and they are perfect!

At first I was a bit concerned about how bulky this dumbbell looked. But, once I received them, they do not feel bulky at all. I have now used them for several weeks (3 times a week) and love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AKP Great set -- worth the purchase
Got these right after Christmas and love them. I started a specific weight training program and needed a wide variety of weights. I bought these because of the great reviews & they did not disappoint.
The weight stack is quick and easy to change out. The sliding pin that holds the weights in place has a magnet on it, so you feel it 'click' into place -- that's how you know it's locked and secure. I have never had any problem with the weights 'coming undone' as another poster insinuated.
I also prefer these over some other brands because they are so compact and easy to store. They don't need a special tray to hold them -- they're square on the bottom so they won't roll away. I keep them right underneath my desk when I'm not using them and they don't take up a lot of room.
In short, I highly recommend this weight set to anyone looking for a small adjustable set for home. I've been lifting for awhile and I have actually reached the point where I need more than 24 pounds on at least half of my exercises -- so I am upgrading to the Power Block 50s soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wendy13 Easy to use - must do it right
The weights are nice, they look sharp and in general they are easy to use. However, if the pin isn't pushed in all the way, or if at an angle it will slip out during use and could be very dangerous. The idea behind using weights is to be able to put them up over your head in many instances. I don't feel safe doing that with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Modizzle1 High quality product. Easy for beginners.
I love these weights. I have been using them for the past month doing Chalene Extreme. They are easy to use and are very sturdy. They take up very little space. Great product, well worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rockywoman Excellent quality
These weights are great. The pin that locks them in place has two prongs on each side and a magnet to lock it in place during use. I am never worried about the weight plates coming loose like I have seen in other reviews. I am so glad I went with these weights, they were well worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FitnessGal11 GREAT PRODUCT
I strongly recommend you purchase this product if you are trying to increase your fitness and weight level. There is no point in buying all the different levels of weights. It is a waste of your money and difficult to transport if you need to take your weights with you to different workout spots. The problem is solved if you make this purchase.
