Professional style dumbbells

Have ordered pro style dumbbells on several occasions whenever I want to treat myself. Rubber coated narrow grip, with end caps. Feel so much better than the rubber hex Dumbells. Steve in sales is excellent to work with. He’ll Keep you posted on sales or discounts.

Handle is smooth curling Rotates well as you curl.

TROY Rubber Encased Olympic Grip Plate | GO-R
Eric Nehlsen (Blue Springs, US)
2.5 lbs plates

My gym needed 2.5 lbs plates because we forgot to order them with our recent equipment order. Steve helped me match what we already had and got me them in a timely manner.

Premium Quiet Dumbbells

My TROY TSD-U dumbbells arrived promptly, well-packaged, and blemish-free. I have a set of TSD-R(ubber) dumbbells and the superior finish of the urethane versions is apparent. The knurling is more uniform among the TSD-U’s than the TSD-R’s and the grips are both thicker around and slightly shorter in length (from end to end). This gives the dumbbells a compact and stable feel and makes them sit equally well on saddled and flat dumbbell racks. The texture of the urethane is remarkably similar to rubber in terms of cushioning or “softness” but has cleaner appearance with sharper lines. The white high gloss enamel makes the TROY lettering pop. If these dumbbells were offered with contoured handles, they would be perfect.

VTX 8-Sided Urethane Encased Dumbbell | SD-U
Mike Hohnhorst (Palm Coast, US)
Best for the price!

These are very well made DB. Urethane coated lasts longer than rubber, 8 sides is more comfortable when holding the bell portion, handles are ergonomic and do not have pinch points, just the right amount of knurling for a good grip. I’ve always preferred a 6,8, or 12 sided Db, they balance better than a round Db and are more versatile.

TKO 3-Tier Shelf DB Rack, Black | 6235-B
Mike Hohnhorst (Palm Coast, US)
Space saver!

Holds 10 pair of DB up to 50 lbs, space saving slant design, the trays are much nicer than traditional angle iron, perfect for 6-8 sided DB.

VTX Cast Iron Kettlebells 2nd Generation | KB-G2
Mike Hohnhorst (Palm Coast, US)
Bomb proof!

Well balanced, large handles, lightly textured powder coat. I use mine primarily for goblet squats, love them!

Troy 12-Sided Rubber Dumbbells

Bought the Troy's (5-75lbs) for a garage gym, which is great with the three tiered rack, which is also quite compact (space is a premium). Have used these dumbbells for years in a commercial gym, and like they way the grips feel, and how I can sit them on my legs/shoulder/etc to stage before a set (flat sides). Would definitely recommend and buy them again.

VTX Rubber Olympic Grip Plate | GO-VR
Flo Pag (Philadelphia, US)
A great choice for plates

All things considered, these are the best plates to have. They're relatively accurate, have grips, are rubber coated and use a steel inner sleeves that are compatible with most bar sleeve sizes (yes, bars have slightly different sleeve dimensions). Can't beat the price when you buy alot of them aswell.


Great attachment that is easy on the wrist and allows you to focus on the muscle . You can't beat the customer service and price from Dumbbells Direct.

Needs some refining

Exterior was generally fine, inside the 2” hole was not smooth. There were little glops of enamel or flecks of steel that I had to sand off with a dremel in order to not scratch up the bar. Not a huge obstacle but still annoying right out of the packaging.
