Check the size - very large grip
September 23, 2018
Measured exactly the 15 pounds that I ordered, with good grippiness. No problems with the neoprene taking the finish off furniture, like a cheaper pair I have. The hex shape could be more defined, but they don't roll on flat surfaces.
That said, I wish I'd realized just how large "1.81 inches" diameter can be for the grip - I didn't even realize that grips varied this much, since all my other sets have such smaller grips. This grip is MUCH larger than any other dumbbell in my collection, including the 20- and 25-pound sets, and the swell at the center makes it even worse. That makes these dumbbells very, very uncomfortable for my average-sized (gloves: ladies' medium) hands. Very expensive to return, so I suggest you be sure you like this huge grip size before you purchase.
