Exceptionally poor quality. Inferior materials. Leaves stains on floor. Broke apart within 4 weeks.

Not what I expected when I purchased this set of weights. Within 3 of the weights began to disintegrate and small piece of stone came falling out of them. This is because the manufacturer uses some kind of stone along with steel in its construction. This normally would not be a problem if they were fully encased in high quality plastic. However these weights only covered by plastic on the outer rim. The plastic used is stiff and has no flexibility like rubber. So after a short period of time pieces of dirt and stone begin to fall out of it as you are using them because the plastic begins to shift and openings appear for debris to fall out.
Even worse is that if you use these weights and sweat on them you will find that when you come back to use them the following day an outline of rust will appear on your floor. How can this be? Again, this is because the weights are only partially covered in plastic. So your sweat seeps into the rusting metal portion of the weights and seeps out the bottom onto the floor when not in use. The residue that is left is rust stains.
I don't give bad reviews for any product lightly. However when you consider the serious consequences of something that could have been easily solved by using better plastic (a relatively inexpensive solution) you begin to understand how inferior these weights are. If you use them regularly you will literally end up with stains on your carpet or hard wood floors which is a serious and expensive problem to solve.
The absolute worse part of this was researching online and seeing others have run into the same problem. These weights are not something that should be allowed to be sold as they are that inferior in quality.
