R 149,00 Décathlon
The quality is good Chrome plating is good. But the clips are a little hard. The clips could open a little more when pressed it would have been perfect. Deleting 1 star for that and 1 star for price. Even after discount its not as cheap as local shops or online. I bought it anyways cause online you don't get it single piece. You need to buy it with the plates. If you don't care for a 1 150 bucks difference then buy it only on the discounted price of 499. The MRP 699 is not worth it.
Good quality and price but keep in mind that if you have other brand plates they may not fit as they are slightly larger than your typical standard weights therefore you will need to buy plates from Decathlon too. Not a major issue for me as these where additional but if you wanted just the bars to compliment what you already have you might be disappointed.
I like this bar, first of all the price is good and also the price of the individual weight plates are pretty good. its perfect if you are looking to increase your weights as your strength improves. i recently bought several more weight plates to go along with the bars, unlike some other brands you don't feel as though you are out of a lot of money when you need extra weights. would recommend.
Price, quality and selection of weight plates
the diameter is a problem if you plan on using anything other than Domyos weights or if you plan on loading them with weights heavier than the Decatlon collars can handle as normal collars won't fit. The chrome plating gets worn off pretty quickly as well. If you don't plan on using this for heavy weight and already have Domyos weights then these are fine. If you haven't already got Domyos weights than I would recommend you look elsewhere. For heavy weights with Domyos plates get a threaded bar.
feel sturdy and solid
the non-standard diameter is a problem
Apologies for the late reply and thanks a lot for your review. We much appreciated our costumer's feedback.
This is a recurrent problem we have and all our store teams are informed about that to explain it to all our customers.
As you say the Domyos bars and plates have a 28mm (1,1 in) and they are not suitable 100% for the 1 in weights or bars.
If you want to return the products we will be happy to see in our store and proceed to your refund.
