Default Dumbbell handles and collars

I have some handles from fbbc. I'm limited to 4 dimes each side.

Does anyone know of a nice set where I can load at least 6 dimes each side and collars that are secure and easy to add and remove.

There are a few online vendors that sell large dumbell handles. Ironmind sells a 24" pair but it costs over 200$ for some strange reason. New York Barbells sell 18 inch handles but the shipping is pretty expensive. What I did was buy a 6 foot standard (1 inch) barbell at a local fitness store and sawed it into 3 2 foot pieces. Slide some collars at the right length to make a place for your hands and its good to go. Just dont use them for dumbell bench or youll destroy your hands dropping them.
