Love this olympic set! Super solid with weights that fit perfectly and stay on but are not difficult to get on and off. Ends rotate, which helps to keep the weights from moving as you lift. The nice range of weight means you can get exactly what you want. Handle grips and rubberized coating makes them really nice to use.
I needed an upgrade from my York Olympic set, as well as buying more weights. The plates are solid, and the barbell is knurled nicely, perfect for deadlifts, and rated for 300kg, which is enough for me. Will be my new bar for deadlift.
Great starting set from Extreme Monkey. The Olympic bar is of high quality, as well as the weights that come with it. With the handles they're easy to maneuver. I looked everywhere and even with the shipping I couldn't find a better deal. I see some people had issues with the clips, however the clips I got with the set work perfect. Can't go wrong with this set.
This set is just as pictured and is a great value for the money, the clips are easy to use, the bar is solid and the weights are sturdy. There was a manufacturing issue with one of the plates but when I addressed it with treadmill factory they had a new plate out to me that same day. Fantastic product and customer service.
I would change the clips on the end. They are very loose and won't in any way prevent weight from sliding off and damaging your floor which is what happened to me the first use. A 2.5 lb weight took a big chunk out of my laminate floor. I'm searching for something better to use.
I was very pleased with the price, the quaility of the product and the speed and service that i received when ordering.
