Personal choice. 20kg is 20kg regardless of what it's made of.

I prefer Iron as the plates are smaller & take up less storage space. Vinyl are less harsh on laminate & wood flooring.

cast iron I would say, more durable and more compact which is probably ergonomically better.
Cheers op.

All very true.

However retailers are known to bundle inferior components with budget vinyl sets. Given we have 20kg of discs here and the dumbell weight isn't listed I'd be suspicious of the threads, and even the bar, being weak. hotukdeals.com/dea…627 is better IMHO.
Just ordered (22.30) and due to be delivered tomorrow. Possibly the best £3.95 (delivery charge) I've spent

DELIVERED @ 16:00, so 18 hours after ordering. They feel good, even come with an exercise chart but show signs of use? All black vinyl discs with some slight damage... Very slight, with white marks on a couple of discs, and Argos (when called) were good enough to refund the postage, so I can now work on my Hernia

Agree, to a degree. Saturday poetry

I'd pay the extra for your iron deal, but it's not needed. There's been a lot of 'inflation' on sports equipment since Covid, but good on Argos, they haven't taken the mick like others. The bars should be fine. You may notice a bend at higher weights on a barbell, but these will be solid for the supplied weight. Cheap, but fine.

Downside, you won't want to build on these weights if you carry on with it. You'll defo want to move on to iron, then regret not moving on to Olympic.
Nooooo... Hopefully keep an eye on these with delivery option D: no way I can carry that back home without a car
I managed to get these instead argos.co.uk/pro…081. Which I have been keeping an eye on since pricey has sky rocketed
