USERS SAID: "I have had these for over ten years, and they are just great! I have moved on to heavier weights, but my daughter uses them too. They are nice because they won't damage your floor if you drop them, and they have a really good grip on them. I would definitely recommend these for anyone who's just starting out. Getting this kit is a better deal than getting them separately."
