Excellent dumbbell. Grips is perfect for my hands (glove size mens large for comparision.) My wife has no problems using them and her hands are smaller. The rubber is high quality, not greasy or overly slick. (Note: I really like rubber coated dumbbells, since you don't get paint or rust particles in your face/eyes when you accidently hit them together when doing declined/flat bench routines...) The only reason these did not get 5 stars is that they were each about a quarter pound light (weighed in at 7.75 lb). Not really noticeable, but I expected a bit better from the Body Solid brand (but I suspect these are all made by the same vendor and then branded). Also, the weight markings on these are very small and hard to read. (I have found that if you take a white paint marker, you can easily highlight the number. It makes it much easier to quickly ID your weights.) Overall, nice DBs.
