Top critical review
Not as described, greasy, but do the job
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 April 2022
Two big gripes with these. Firstly, the description states they are encapsulated in rubber which they most definitely are not. If these are indeed encapsulated in rubber then I played badminton with Mother Theresa on the moon. Generic plastic like the card that paid for them.
Secondly, probably about half the weights themselves arrived with an oily/greasy residue all over which was more effort than I anticipated to remove. It does not wipe off, not with tissue, not with a wet wipe. Full washing up liquid here. One way to get a workout though I suppose…
On a positive, packaging was adequate. Cardboard was slightly damaged but that’s equally down to the pesky delivery drivers. They are also heavy and orange, so they’ll build muscle when scrubbing and lugging to and from the sink, plus I’ll look sexy with the flash of orange to tell everyone I care about my appearance.
They’ll do the job and it’s not worth the effort returning them now, so I’ll just use them.
