Rated 5 out of 5 by Ron03 Perfect for Mid-level Rack
I didn't have a lot of room, however, I have numerous cast iron dumbbells. This product addresses my needs in this regard, completely. It's sturdy, wasn't excessively priced and looks very professional. For the lowest level shelf, I have (2) 55's, (1) 50 and (2) 45's; midlevel is (2) 40's, (2) 35's and (2) 15's; top shelf (2) 30's, (2) 25's and (2) 20's for a total of 580lbs. No weight capacity was listed on any of the literature that came with the rack, but, the current load doesn't seem to be a problem. It could probably handle more. The product was delivered without any damage.
If you need more capacity, purchasing (2) of these racks would take up less space than some of the larger racks. If you have a lot of dumbbells that clutter your workout area, it's tough to go wrong with buying this rack. I have high expectations related to my purchases and I couldn't be happier.

I needed a reasonably priced, compact rack for my vintage York Round Head dumbbells. After checking several designs I chose the Apex Deluxe 3. My dumbbells range from 5 to 60 pounds. Not all 12 pairs fit on this compact rack at first, Solution: I purchased two 36" pieces of angle iron from a local hardware store and added a fourth shelf on the rear base of the rack, The smaller four pairs 5-20's fit perfect..
This rack is very sturdy even with a total of 760 pounds of dumbbells
The height and angle of the shelves make using this rack a joy.
Warning:. The rack is not rated to hold this poundage but it has for the past two years.

I gave this to my husband as a Christmas gift and he likes it a lot. It is sturdy and hold most of his weights. We were just missing one small piece--end cap. I put a call into the manufacturer to see if we could get this piece and so far I haven't heard back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DP It's exactly what it says it is.
This rack is sturdy, easy to put together and does a good job of cleaning up the work out room floor. It arrived quickly. I had it together in less than a 1/2 hour and is currently supporting north of 400lbs. of dumbells. (guess I should check the weight limit.) I would definitely recommend it.

My concern when I purchased this product was the durability and the "assembly required". Once I opened the box and saw the instructions as well as the product, I was pleasantly surprised. I assembled it with ease and loaded my dumbells on and was thoroughly impressed with the durability of this rack.
Not for the Review:
I was unable to successfully purchase this product online due to issues on the Dick's website. I went into the store and the Dick's associate assisted me purchasing it online while in the store. However when I was trying to purchase the product online there was a 40% discount in progress. When I purchased it...a couple of days later, this 40% discount was not available therefore I had to pay the full amount. I was not pleased with this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mark Product was damaged when received.
When I received the product in the mail, it appeared that it was hit with a metal hammer. The product was wrapped up tightly with bubble wrap so it appeared it was shipped damaged. The damaged consisted of a quarter sized dent in the primary beam. At the damaged area, the paint was chipped off. There was no paint chips in the box which further proves my theory that it was packaged damaged.
The information within the box states not to return to store but to call a 1800 number for assistance. I called the number several times and each time got stuck in a crazy phone loop, put on hold, and then hung up on.
If you want a damaged product with no support to resolve the situation, this product is for you!

I wanted to surprise my husband with this rack for Father's Day. He loves it!
It was easy to assemble and is very sturdy. The rack holds his free weights;
sizes ranging from 10 to 60 lbs. It makes his workout area neat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JH12 Solid product
A nice solid product. The only negative is that it does not fit as well as it could with the "Fitness Gear Cast Hex dumbbell". However this is only a minor issue and, overall, I like the product.
