They're great to hold...and as they're vinyl covered, it doesn't cause any pain on the hands. Each one is a few ounces shy of eight pounds, so they're not exactly the right weight, However, overall, I can give them 4 stars.
These are nice! The coating makes them a little quieter when I drop them from exhaustion! The came in a timely manner and were packed appropriately for "weighted" objects. I also got a set of 12 pounders too.
I absolutely love the Body Solid Tools Vinyl Dumbbells (8 Lbs)! They have done wonders to my arms and I have received countless compliments on how good I look, all thanks to these incredible weights! I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to tone up and get in shape!
