If you are planning to purchase the Cast Iron Adjustable dumbbells by Titan Fitness, in one pair of these dumbbells, you will be provided with a weight range starting form five pounds and goes all the way to fifty pounds on each dumbbell. Whereas, there are two handles with four collars and around twenty-four plates of different weights have been provided in a set, so it’s a pretty big number which gives you the ability to adjust weight from five pounds’ increment having a total of ten different settings till fifty pounds. The knurled pattern on the bar gives you a good tight grip especially in heavier weights. There is a severe issue in many old school dumbbells regarding the grip that they do digging and ruin the texture of your hand when you are going with heavy workouts but in the dumbbells of Titan Fitness, no such thing has ever happened and observed which may rip your hand because these bars are properly etched and can be used without using a pair of gloves. The texture on the bar is designed in such a way that the bardoesn’t even slips from your hand which can be dangerous if dropped.
Both dumbbells in one set of Titan Fitness consist of a bar with a length of 16.25 inches and with a diameter of aninch. Though the length of the bar is pretty muchso it may give you difficulties in performing exercises like should press, bicep curls and many more but with the passage oftime you will get used to it. With a knurling length of 4.5inches you can easily adjust your grip and focus the specific part of your muscle. Having a finish of chrome on handles with painted black plates, these dumbbells give an aesthetic old school look which is one of the best factorsofTitan Fitness adjustable dumbbells. The material used in the manufacturing of plates is Cast Iron, which is a basic metallic material used in every traditional and old school dumbbell because the plates made from this material offer greater durability.
Once you make the dumbbells all loaded up till fifty pounds which is the maximum weight,you can’t add excessive weight in the bar because the length of the bar is especially designed to withstand only that amount of weight. If anyhow, someone even manages to do so, then there will be an issue of tightening with star lock collars and if you don’t tight them, it will be very dangerous and will make the weight bars wobble while lifting. These dumbbells by Titan Fitness are very much affordable than any Cast Iron dumbbells present in the markets, regarding its quality, durability and ease of use.

Final Verdict and Review
I decided to purchase these dumbbells because of their price and cast iron plates but after using them there were some minor issues that should be taken into account too before buying adjustable dumbbells by Titan Fitness. First issue was that the total weight of the plates was 47.5lbs. along with the handles which were supposed to weigh up to 2.5lbs. The length of the bar becomes short when I load up the dumbbells with all plates available. Thus, giving me no more room to tighten the star collar on both sides to feel safe and even in low weights the collars seem to loosen a bit after each set and you need to re tighten them before starting a set. Thisis very annoying and makes the dumbbell shiver a lot while performing the exercises like shoulder press or incline press. When the product first arrived to me, I found that the container in which the dumbbells came was very low grade and made of thin cardboard. The box was torn up due to heavy plates and one of the collars was also missing. Also, the shipping was very slow which wasn’t expected by Titan Fitness. Overall, if you have a minimum amount of budget, then these dumbbells are very much useful and will also save your time instead of going to the gym.
