I have another question, last one I promise lol, well almost lol.
The professional style dumbells, e.g. handle with sandwich style plates that you screw the cap to state the weight e.g. 10kg, that's 10kg plus the handle so 11-12kg dependant on how thing the handle is.
The hex / hex rubber handles state the weight total I imagine, so I presume that there's a small difference, e.g. a pro style 10kg dumbell actually weights 11.5kg approximately where a 10kg hex / rubber hex would weight 10kg?
I think I'm just going to order one pair, see how I feel with them and go from there.
Refence the pro style dumbells, I could always order e.g. a 20kg set (4no 5kg plates per dumbell) and buy a set of 2.5kg and 1.25kg dumbell plates. That would allow be to adjust the sizes accordingly once I get stronger as I assume the plate thicknesses are the same but the plate diamater would be smaller.
