sturdy and effective
- Abba dabba
I purchased this item a few weeks ago and it is working out great.
The item was very easy to assemble and it seems very sturdy. I have a 5-50 hex dumbbell set on the rack and there is a little room to spare. I have 5s, 10s, 15s, and 20s on the top rack. There is a little extra room on the top rack. On the middle rack I have my 25s, 30s and 35s. There was actually enough extra room on the middle rack to hold an extra 35 lb dumbbell. On the bottom rack I have 40s, 45s and 50s (The bottom rack does not have any extra space.)
The only issue I had was that the item was not packaged effectively. I say this because when I opened the box, the pieces had clearly jostled around quite a bit during shipment. It appears that one of the rack bars rubbed/bumped up against on of the arms of the rack, resulting with a small scratch. I kept the rating at 5 stars becaue the scratch is not a big deal to me.

Functional for "standard" dumbbells, but not all plastic coated, female-oriented styles. Seems to be sturdy and durable. Assembly was relatively easy.
Quality rack, but photo is misleading - will not fit 5-50lbs rubber dumbbellls
- C. Wiesner
Just got this rack and Body-Solid's 5-50 lbs rubber hex dumbbell set. The rack is sturdy and high quality.
But beware the photos above implying that all 10 pairs of the rubber hex dumbbell sets will fit on this rack. The photos only show 9 pairs (one has been removed). If you put all 10 pairs on the rack, the bottom shelf is too short by about 2 inches, requiring the dumbbells to be slightly stacked / overlap each other.
Shame on Body-Solid for (1) not building their rack just inches wider to fit their own dumbbell set, and (2) putting out a deliberately misleading stock photo with one pair removed.
