Comments about Cap Barbell 100lbs Chrome Barbell set with knock down 5' bar in a plastic case:
Shipping- Case will be broken through shipping no matter what so if your getting this mainly for the case, I wouldn't. Only plus is that it arrived unsuspectingly early.
Items- Rusty/dirty bar. Weights have many dents/scratches/dirt. Product appears to be opened previously. In other words, not new at all. Probably gonna have to wash/clean all the parts.
The plates are fat so it's easier to use for one hand curling which is why I got it. Instead of the "Pancake" weights you traditionally get for standard bars (1" holes). My standard 10lb weights are 9.75 inches in diameter while the chromed 10lb weights are 7.25 in diameter. That's a HUGE noticeable difference. I'd put a picture but I'm not allowed to put html on here.
These weights will fit standard/ez bars
Personal Preference: I just got it because it was shiny and plates are fat which takes up less space on the floor and easier for curling. I don't care much about the case but was pretty disappointed how beat up the chrome weights were and dirty.
Hope that helps someone. Ignore the person above, useless comment that doesn't even make sense.
