With the owner’s manual you’ll make sure that the correct description along with warranty claiming process is provided. The length of the bar is 85” which is quite long and gives you the authority to add more weight over 300lbs. too because there is plenty of space left after the maximum limit.

The texture of the grip may damage your hands, so it is recommended to use gym gloves or apply white powder to prevent your hands from getting rough.

Final Verdict and Review
When I first bought Marcy Classic Eco. Olympic Weight Set, I wasn’t really familiar with them so I didn’t start using them since I had amuch better weight set then these, but after nearly a year ago I took out these and started lifting weight on them. Though everything seemed to be perfect except the bar which was of weight 35lbs. hence, for me I don’t consider this type of bar weight an Olympic bar. The weights were made up of metal and there was a series of bubbles on that position where we are supposed to grip them. Though I ripped my hand a couple of times but then I started wearing gloves and completely avoided touching that place. Every plate doesn’t consist of bubbles but the weight plates of 35lbs. and 45lbs. do. From these plates getting splinters became quite regular to me though with only one or two session it’s easy to remove. The end of the plate are very much sharp which makes the spring clamp difficult to fit on. Hence, buying lockjaw clamps solved my issue of spring clamps because they became annoying and frustrating to me.
One of the major issues is of my floor that it starts lifting deadlift and squats causing one of my collar to broke down. Though I’m not slapping the plates onto the floor neither I’m being too light on them but the etched holding with one of the collars is stripped and is not suitable now to use them for lifting. As the product description says, made of recyclable iron which isenvironmentally friendly. This statement is truly wrong because these plates are made of concrete having a cheap metal covering onthem. The paint starts chipping off once you place them on the floor. The product is very misleading and of bad quality. Though it’s suggested not to buy this product at any case, because it is not that the thing you will see in pictures, hence wasting your time and money respectively!
