What experts liked
The handle itself weighs ten pounds and comes with eight 5-pound plates so that you can lift from 10 to 50 pounds at a time. The dumbbell is made of chrome-plated steel and is designed to be ultra-compact.
- Much Needed
Switching between plates is extremely easy, he profiles are not bulky.
- List Outdoor
They have flat ends for easy workout setup, they have the shape of standard fixed dumbbells, making them less awkward than other styles.
- Garage Gym Power
Fast, simple and foolproof, sum up the design of the Bayou Fitness adjustment system. You simply lift the pin up and slide it into the position of the desired amount of weight, the pin will then lock into place.
- Jay's Home Gym
Saves a lot more space that would otherwise be taken up with 9 separate sets of dumbbells.
- USA Home Gym
These top rated adjustable dumbbells really are quite compact, and they have that classic shape that I love.
- 10 Machines

The plates doesn’t have a space in between that creates any clacking or rattling sound that can cause an uneasy feeling during your exercise.

What experts didn't like
Fairly expensive for a single dumbbell.
- Much Needed
The Bayou Fitness Adjustable Dumbbell do have a tendency to clang when loading.
- List Outdoor
Adjustment may stick from time to time, can be lubricated to make it easier.
- Garage Gym Power
On the negative, the Bayou 50lb set adjusts in 10lb increments, 10lb increments will be problematic for isolation exercises where it is preferable to increase weight in smaller increments, this is the first set I have reviewed where the dumbbell increases in such large increments.
- Jay's Home Gym
Weight plates tend to rattle slightly during an exercise, although this is relatively common amongst adjustable dumbbells.
- USA Home Gym
Tempermental knob system – you shouldn’t have to add WD-40 to your equipment before using it.
- 10 Machines
Weights may need re-secured and adjustment pieces may stick.

As you sweat, it is inevitable to keep the equipment away from getting wet. It will eventually rust making the plates a little hard to adjust or will require you to apply some lubricant such as grease.
- Fitness Rocks
Perhaps the biggest turn off for those going with Bayou Fitness dumbbells is the fact they have shipped the 25 lb set as a pair while shipping the 50 lb dumbbell as a single piece. This has resulted to some furious customers upon finding out they got only one dumbbell shipped to their door instead of a pair!

Increments may not be the best choice for some users.
- Dumbbell Geeks
If you adjust the weight in 5 lb increments then the weight will be unbalanced as one side will have one more plate but this can be resolved by gripping closer to the heavier side.
