After figuring out that I wasn’t going to find something I liked on craigslist, ebay or at play-it-again, I resigned myself to buying new. Wow! Lumps of metal are expensive!

I did some considerable shopping and this set was the best bang-for-buck I could find. At first I was apprehensive, because I had just purchased and then returned a different CAP product: “Cap Barbell 40-Pound Dumbbell Set” which was surprisingly terrible…Really, how do you screw up making lumps of metal?

For this set, what was important to me was that the dumbells went from 10-30lbs. For my fitness level, 5lb weights would be used as doorstops. I’d much rather have a higher top-end. Of course shipping is a big issue. These came out well above the $1/pound going rate, but locally I’d have to pay sales tax and waste my time shopping for something comparable.

Easy peasy, shipped to my door. The stand assembles in minutes and everything appears to be good fit and finish. My body is looking forward to many years of use.

As a small side note: The finish on the stand isn’t perfect. Mine had a small bit of wire hanging off that simply got painted over, and there is now a “crease” where it used to be…so if the look of your gym equipment is important, this set isn’t exactly fancy, maybe a bit more…industrial, which I happen to like. Bonus.

I recently decided I needed to get into shape after looking at myself in the mirror a few too many times. With gym memberships at astronomical prices, I thought I’d look for a weight set that would suit my needs. When I found this CAP set, I knew I had found my new set. I have owned CAP weights before, and their solid construction had me coming back. The set, with dumbbells from 10 to 30 lbs, fit right within my budget and my weight range (I said I’m getting back into shape, don’t judge). The rubber coating is great for my wood floors as it does not scratch and the rack was very easy to set-up, with plastic guards to protect your floor and your weights from scratches. My one gripe is one of the hexagonal heads is off-set from the rest of the set giving the weight an awkward feel when resting on the floor, but nothing big other than aesthetics. All in all a very solid and budget friendly weight set that should last a long time.

Conclusion Rating
The Cap Barbell Rubber Dumbbell Set, 200-Pounds was rated very favorably by those who purchased the set.
