I bought these York Dumbells in January 2010, on a new year's health kick. Here I am in July 2012 and the kick is still going strong!
I was a weed with a bit of a belly when I bought these weights, and I used them for 6 months until I joined a full gym in June 2010. They were a great way for me to get started, as I wanted to be in some sort of shape before I started going to a gym which I knew would be full of intimidating presences.
As long as you do your research and you know what to do with the dumbells, they are a great set to go with. The cast-iron plates give them a real quality and they feel very robust.
The dumbells come with several plates so you do not necessarily need to use the full weight they come with all the time. The only problem I have had with this is that the flies come a bit loose during lifting, but not so much that the plates fall off.
Even after 2 years at a proper gym I still have a use for these dumbells, as they are great for high intensity cardio workouts. There is plenty of wear left in them. Would recommend to any beginner.
