Comments about Body-Solid Body Solid Rubber Grip Olympic Plate 255lbs Weight Set:
I have to say that this would have been a 5 star product if it weren't for the rubber smell. It has caused my entire house to smell like a rubber shop. After contacting the mgfr, they recommend soaking and cleaning in Pine-sol and airing it out. It has been nearly 3 weeks now and the smell still exists. The fumes caused some grief, naseous and headaches. So before considering this set, be prepared for this smell. Hopefully it will go away soon enough - i sent Sport Authority 2 emails and no one had responded to this matter.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
