Default Adjustable Dumbbell Handles

oops--Wrong location. Sorry mod.

Can anyone suggest a solid dumbbell handle that can handle 5-7 standard plates on each side? I have been using some homemade versions I found in Ross’s Infinite Intensity, which are made with iron pipes. The more I start to snatch and clean & press over my head the more nervous I become, because I am not sure how strong these pipes are. Of course, their capacity may be greater than I will ever need.

I have found these:
1) http://www6.mailordercentral.com/iro...sp?number=1224

2) http://www.fractionalplates.com/cgi-...&catalogno=8.1

Any thoughts on the quality of the abovementioned options? I have an adjustable Kettlebell from PDA that is solid, so I assume their dumbbells would be as well.

Thanks

Alan
