Few fixed-weight dumbbells attract many reviews, but the Valeo Neoprene Hand Weights receive excellent ratings from owners. Reviewers say these neoprene-covered cast-iron weights are comfortable to hold and have a nonslip grip. They come in 2-, 3-, 5-, 8- and 10-pound sets. Users find them easy to use, although since they are so lightweight, you can outgrow them easily. Valeo Hand Weights are marketed for women, but male reviewers looking for lightweight dumbbells also have good things to say about these weights. Some users say that the Valeo dumbbells are expensive compared to all-metal dumbbells. If you need more weight, Cap Barbell Cast-Iron Dumbbells (*Est. $10 and up) come in various weights up to 50 pounds per dumbbell.
Few reviewers cover fixed-weight dumbbells, but the Valeo hand weights are covered in user reviews at Amazon.com and ExpoTV.com. Amazon.com has more than 50 ratings for these neoprene dumbbells, and some reviews are quite detailed.
The Valeo Neoprene Hand Weights get an overall rating of 4.8 stars out of 5 in more than 50 reviews at Amazon.com. Reviewers praise the comfortable grip, and they find the weights balanced and easy to lift. However, a few critics find them overpriced.
