Flimsy, Dangerous, and Terrible Customer Service
I bought these because they were well rated on Wirecutter, whose opinions I generally respect. For the first 2-3 months of use, I really enjoyed them. They were priced decently, and extremely easy and convenient to use. I particularly liked that you only needed to twist the dumbbell handle in order ...

Avoid this brand at all costs!! Broke within months with light, recreational use...
Hi all - please DO NOT buy this dumbbell set. My set broke within months and I can't even get through to the company for a replacement. Extremely disappointing. Plus look at the pictures and read below... that piece was bound to break at some point. I also use the weights 1-2x per week and never dro...

DON’T DROP THEM!!!!
Function well, if you don’t drop them. I accidentally dropped one of them from about a foot and the smallest weights tab broke off rendering the entire system useless. I can’t find anywhere where you can buy a replacement 5lb weight. User fault but construction should be able to withstand that if th...

Falls apart after a couple months and zero customer support
Similar to other experiences, after a couple months of very light use the weights came apart and the adjustment mechanism has been rendered useless. I tried contacting Core Home Fitness customer support and it I may as well have been shouting into the void. There doesn't seem to be a way to actually...

Saving precious time.
I just received my dumbbells today 2/2/18. They arrived in 4 days as opposed to the 6-7 day estimation. They were very easy to “assemble”. Sliding the weight plates into the base (they stack and connect by sliding one into another) and then the handle. After that you are ready to roll. The weight ad...

Great Adjustable Dumbbell Weight Set!
I never do anything half-*ssed regarding significant purchases, i.e., I research professional reviews and also get a take for personal reviews, especially the negative ones. Essentially, I gather my information and determine what is and what isn't important. Same deal with these weights . . . So, th...

Not a bad adjustable set, but fragile
In terms of use and convenience it's much better than Bowflex. However, the small ledge tab that prevents wiggling on the 5 lbs plate is easy to break off. I've superglued mine several times and its still coming off. Update: They after much back and forth emails, Core fitness sent me 2 of the 4 plat...

Falls apart without notice
I have tried for several weeks to contact this company to address an issue. Today, while working out, they just fell apart on me. I have been gentle with these dumbbells and have been very careful not to drop them. As you can see by the picture, they are VERY unsafe and could cause serious injury wi...

Happy so far
Five stars so far. The amount of space these save over a 5 to 50 lb set of dumbbells is huge, and the cost savings is also huge. I also really like the grips which are ergonomic and grippy but firm. The mechanism works quite well so far. I also like that these are not as long as some similar dumbbel...

Numerical slide on one dumbbell installed incorrectly.
After unpacking and assembling these dumbells, I noticed one dumbell had the number guide on one side installed incorrectly. It works, but you can only pay attention to the numbers on the other side. Annoying defect at this price point. I called Amazon to see if maybe they could send me just one han...
