Xmark Fitness Adjustable Dumbbells
Xmark offers the most heavy duty set of budget adjustable dumbbells on the market. The chrome plated steel and thick plastic parts make this a pretty heavy duty pair of weights and fewer weight plates mean that there is not a lot of sway and movement between weight plates. Xmark uses a sliding pin for weight changes which works better than any other pin model I have ever used. While these dumbbells are definitely deserving of a spot on this best list, they do have their own set of cons. At their price you would like to see a little higher weight than 25 pounds and the increase of weight in 5 pound increments is less than desirable in a 25 pound weight set.
