    CAP weight plates are complete garbage. No quality control at all. Some are occasionally OK, if you luck out, but often you get complete and utter garbage. AVOID if you have other options. Unfortunately with the current situation, I had no choice. It was these pieces of crap or nothing at all. The bore holes are completely rough, to the point I had to take a metal file to one of the 25lb plates to smooth out some burrs that otherwise would have damaged my bar. The other 25lb plate had voids in the fabric of the metal, indicating very poor casting quality. Really I cant believe anyone on Amazon sells this junk. If I were receiving as a seller I would tell CAP to take their trash and shove it up their asses. AVOID AVOID AVOID.

    You would think the size would al be the same, right? Wrong. You would think the weights would be all within lets say half a pound at most, right? Wrong. I recieved eight 45lb plates while some are 44lbs which is acceptable for what you pay but 42.6lbs? Thats unacceptable. Im not asking for competition quality weights or within a couple grams.. Were are talking 2.4lbs less then what the product describes.. All the other weights I ordered are all within decent tollerance.. 5, 10, 25, 35lbs..

    What can be said about a 5# weight that hasn’t been said before. I mean, when your lifting at your current weight, and decide that you need just five pounds more, this thing has got your back. Oh wait, you say smartly, wouldn’t that be unbalanced? Yes, yes it would I admit. So you better do what I did and buy two of these bad boys. Yes, it does cost twice as much, but your getting twice as much, so that’s only fair, right? Just be prepared to lift 10# more, because, you see, if you can only handle 5# more what you actually need are 2 – 2.5# weights. Now you’ve gotten a review and a math lesson for only the cost of a review. Is it a bad time to admit that I didn’t actually weigh these to see if they are actually 5#? Because I totally didn’t. I guess sometimes you just have to trust people. Of course I forgot to mention all of the other things that this could be used for, like tracing circles exactly this size, as a coaster, and as a really short distance frisbee. A real multi tasker this one.

    Weighed exactly 5lbs and weren’t damaged or anything. Fits pretty well on a 2inch bar.

    Just noticed a sticker that says this product contains chemicals that cause cancer, birth defect and other reproductive issues. What????

    I’ve never had a weight-plate break on me before, but here we are. Now, I’m not one of those guys who drops bars to the ground. I do everything in a controlled fashion and on rubber mats as well. I was doing deadlifts, and when I brought the bar down for the final rep, this stupid thing cracked, just like that. Of course, CAP only offers a 30 day warranty on plates, so I’m totally out of luck. But this thing didn’t even last 5 months. I have plates that are literally older than I am (I’m 39 and the plates were my dad’s). Do yourself a favor and invest in something higher quality.

    I ordered 6 of these so far (2×25, 2×10, 2×2.5) and my bodyweight scale measured each 25# one as 25.0 lbs on the nose. It’s not a hyper-accurate scale, but it’s relatively accurate to within +- 0.2 lbs. I plan to order 45s, 35s, and 5s to complete my set.

    • I love the grips and the hammered metal finish (certain paints are capable of producing that hammered look when dry).
    • Absolutely cannot beat the price for the 45s, 25s, 10s, and 2.5s. The 35s and the 5s break the pattern of ridiculously cheap, but they’re still not too bad for what you get.
    • Each weight (25 lb) shipped separately in its own box to minimize potential damage from shipping, something I appreciate.

    • As others have said, the inner 2″ diameter cutout was roughly finished, but this was only true of the larger 25# weights I ordered, NOT the smaller ones. Both of my two 25# weights came with some sharp burred edges, but a quick touch with my Dremel, and everything was sorted out. Alternatively, one could touch up the sharp/rough patches with a metal file. Either way, this was not a big deal for me, and I placed my order fully expecting to encounter this.
    • Of the three sets I ordered, the 2.5# weights took much longer to ship (roughly 3 weeks), but arrived promptly after shipping (within 2 days). No big deal for me, but just beware you may have to wait for your full set.

    Aside note:
    • I’m amused by people who see the Prop 65 warning for the first time in their lives thinking these barbell weights are going to give them cancer. You can tell these people are either not from California, or they do not buy many products aimed at California markets. To clarify: California requires, by law, a warning label on all products sold in the state when those products contain one or more statutorily defined chemicals “known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.” This can include lead or lead-based paint. Yes, lead is a known carcinogen, and lead paint is toxic. It is also very common. The truth is, many of these one-star reviewers have likely encountered this substance in their own states WITHOUT such a warning.

    For instance, bullets and air rifle pellets are overwhelmingly manufactured with lead as the main component. Lead is used in older formulations of pewter. Lead is commonly included in industrial paints. In fact, in older communities, lead was a material commonly used in potable water pipes to carry drinking water from city supplies into homes. While I am only guessing, I’d say the warning probably applies to the paint, which is likely lead-based.

    So, what can you do to minimize adverse health effects from handling these barbells? The single biggest thing you can do to stay safe is not to eat the paint. Yes, I’m serious. Don’t be tempted to lick it, however tasty it may appear, and don’t let your children lick the barbells either. The other thing is to simply wash your hands like a civilized person after handling the weights. You should be in this habit anyway. Do these things, and if you still get cancer, I promise it was probably from something else.

    Lol. Sometimes, you people really amuse me. Carcinogenic barbell weights. What will you internets think of next?

    By the way, ethanol (the kind of grain alcohol in drinks like beer, wine, and other distilled spirits) is a known carcinogen. You’d be surprised what common products in every day life are carcinogenic. Common medications like benzodiazipines, barbiturates, albuterol, and atorvastatin are carcinogenic; also carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, carbon tetrachloride and many other aromatic hydrocarbons… to date, the list has accumulated more than 800 substances. Too much sunlight is carcinogenic. Not enough sunlight is carcinogenic. These barbells are the least of your concerns.

    Good luck, be smart, and stay safe.

    I love these weight plates. I purchased a whole set of these including 45’s, 35’s, 25’s, 10’s, 5’s and 2.5’s before the COVID situation. At that time I believe I paid around $1.00 per pound give or take, with free shipping, so overall a fantastic value for weight plates.

    These are great for an at-home gym, which is what I use mine for. I have these pared with a CAP barbell and a power cage and I couldn’t be happier. Outside of the actual gym, these are the next best thing!

    This is your typical, wrought iron plate with low quality controls (easily cracked enamel finish, somewhat inaccurate weight) at a low price. The state of California, picky as they come, has decided that the androgen blocking and potentially cancer causing phthalate chemicals in what is likely the latex paint on the side of these weights deserves a health warning. Having read the research, I find the inclusion of these chemicals despite the known danger a little bit disturbing (since the paint serves no functional purpose). However, the quantities you are likely to absorb in a little bit of paint that you will probably never have to touch have never been found to cause damage.
    I’ve decided to rate these plates 3/5 because of their great value, low quality controls, and the unnecessary inclusion of theoretically harmful phthalate chemicals.

    Aside from my rating, Amazon may make sending this item to you a complete clownshow by putting the 45 lb plate in a huge, essentially empty box, causing it to bang around in shipping, wrecking itself and the box it comes in.

    They’re cheap for a reason. The grip holes are not cast properly, creating extremely sharp edges. Many plates came with chips in the paint and rough spots in the finish as well.

    The enamel coating used on these weights gives me a sore throat and makes me feel dizzy. If you are planning on keeping these weights outdoors please ignore this review. However, if you are planning on a home gym I would VERY strongly advise against purchasing. After two months these plates smell just as bad as the day I bought them. After doing some research I think I understand why: the enamel paint was not fully “baked” on when these plates were manufactured. This kind on paint does not dry at room temperature. It must be baked in an industrial oven. Unfortunately that means partially baked plates will continue to give off noxious fumes for years to come. Before learning this I tried scrubbing them with soap, degreaser, rubbing alcohol, and of course just cracking a window. None of it worked. As others have mentioned these plates come with stickers on them that say “caution this product contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer.” Trust the sticker. Either keep these plates in your garage or back yard. Don’t have a garage? Don’t buy these plates!
