After trying out countless 9 pound dumbbell sets I have come up with a list of five best ones. Read full review now!
#1 SPRI Deluxe Vinyl 9lb Dumbbells
SPRI Deluxe Vinyl 9lb Dumbbells are second best I tried. The weight is accurate. These dumbbells have vinyl coating which can get a bit slippery if you have sweaty hands. They also have a larger grip which might be uncomfortable if you have smaller hands, but if that’s the case then looking from the positive side you will at least get an extra workout in your forearms while trying harder to hold them (which isn’t necessary what you might want). In my hands that aren’t small they felt good.
With the vinyl coating you don’t have to worry about nicking your furniture or floor. I Deluxe Vinyl 9lb Dumbbells smell a bit funny when you first unpack them but that smell goes away in couple days.
- Accurate weight
- Good quality
- Slippery with sweaty hands
- Bigger grip might be uncomfortable for those with smaller hands
#2 RitFit Neoprene Coated 9lb dumbbells
RitFit 9 pound dumbbells have neoprene coated. The neoprene color is very beautiful and the dumbbells look great. They feel good to hold – the grip size is good – not too big, not too small. The grip itself is great, with sweaty hands the dumbbells not slide/slip in your hands. They are rough hexagon shape which prevents them from rolling away and they stay standstill stably. Initially the neoprene coating seem to be of good quality but after some use it starts to come off.
- Good grip
- Look great
- Good hexagon shape
- Neoprene coating starts to come off after some use
#3 CAP Barbell Neoprene Coated 9lb Dumbbell
CAP Barbell Neoprene Coated 9lb Dumbbell are third best I tried. They are sold individually so if you need two dumbbells you have to specifically order two. The handles are soft and comfortable to hold, the grip isn’t too big. Dumbbells are hex shape which doesn’t always do a good job of preventing them from rolling away, but in this case they do! The neoprene coating isn’t 100% smooth, you can feel bumps in your hands which makes you question the quality and longevity of this product. As most neoprene coated dumbbells these also smell a bit toxic first but the smell goes away in a couple days.
- Don’t roll away
- Soft handle
- Neoprene coating isn’t smooth
- Quality and durability is questionable
#4 Yes4All Deluxe Neoprene Coated 9 pound Dumbbells
Yes4All Deluxe 9 pound dumbbells have solid cast iron core and neoprene coating finish. The grip of dumbbells with sweaty hands is good however grip size is too big – unless you have big hands you will probably find them uncomfortable and if you have small ones you might even find the dumbbells to be unusable. They are hexagon shape which kinda prevents them from rolling away but isn’t distinctive enough so they often roll away anyway. Neoprene coating isn’t smooth and has cuts in few places. The Yes4All Deluxe 9 pound dumbbells are not of good quality unfortunately.
- Grip size is too big
- Low quality neoprene coating
