It arrived fast but the box came tore up & the weights & the barbell look used & dirty with lots wear & tear and the biggest problem of them all is the barbell will not assemble because the holes to insert the plastic pins are not aligned correctly and the holes to insert the pins have extra steel in the hole that’s one of the reason the pins will not go in so I will be returning this asap and investing more money in a better olympic set. And the weight plates weigh a pound less and the weights are covered in extremely cheap paint and the paint is put on very sloppy. And here is a picture showing you the extra steel in the hole preventing the plastic pin from going in. And this set has many more issues but I don’t wanna make this a long review.

This product seemed like a great deal but I would never know because assembling the 3 piece Olympic bar turned out to be impossible. I’m not the first reviewer to have this issue so buyer beware. The pins were too large and would not fit into the holes that didn’t align properly. Using a rubber mallet as the instructions recommended only resulted in damaging the mallet. Two men and every tool possible couldn’t work around these manufacturing flaws.

The bar repairs assembly with a hammer but wasn’t difficult to do. This deal is hard to beat but would have preferred a solid Olympic bar.
How any other reviewer got this barbell assembled is beyond me. Perhaps it’s only my set but the holes on the receiving middle bar do not line up with the sleeve. It is impossible to hammer in the pins. The first picture shows how they line up, it’s hard to see but that’s as far as the pieces will connect. The second picture shows what is likely the real source of the issue.
