Final Verdict and Review
The set comes in a good quality, with pairs of packages having different set of weight. Though I appreciate this thing because that makes the package easy to carry for the vendor. When I first opened my package, I sensed a very strong chemical smell which was unable to handle. So I put them on my roof for a day and next morning I saw that the smell had all gone. Though these plates are bit of expensive and they should be, because of rubber coating, but overall the XMark Premium Olympic set is a great investment on weight set to enhance your fitness regime.
