The current reviews for this product are overwhelmingly positive (they have a 4.5 rating out 5 overall). Out of 25 reviews, 19 reviewers have given these adjustable dumbbells 5 out of 5 stars, while another 4 reviewers have given the product 4 out of 5 stars. People who have added these adjustable dumbbells to their fitness routine stress the sturdy construction of this product and how easy it is to adjust them, in comparison to other similarly priced items. These dumbbells have sturdy metal plates which prevents them from wearing out as quickly as the cheaper, all plastic, option that is also available for purchase. The grips are made of metal, which is an added bonus while using these to work out. There are a few plastic parts on these particular dumbbells, but even users who have been working out with them for 6 plus months haven’t had problems with the plastic breaking or wearing out.
These dumbbells are comparable in quality to the other weight adjustable dumbbells. The only real difference is that those other dumbbells can run $100 or more than the Bayou Fitness Pair of Adjustable Dumbbells. Due to their sturdy construction and ease of use, even high school coaches have used these dumbbells with their athletes. There are really only two downsides to these particular dumbbells. The first one is that they can make a clattering sound (from the metal plates knocking together while working out). The sound is not too loud though and no more noise than what you’d encounter while working out at a weight room in a gym. The other issue people have encountered is the fact that they only go up to 25 pounds, while some others go up to 50. This isn’t an issue for most people though, as they don’t really need the higher weight and people appreciate that they start at the lower 5 pound weight.
This product is Recommended by Adjustable Dumbbells Review. It is Recommended due to it’s sturdy construction and overall extremely positive reviews. Keep in mind that the 50 pound option is recommended as it will allow for more growth and use as you get stronger.
