Pro-Style Dumbbells and Pro-Style Dumbbell Sets - The Pro-Style dumbbell, or “fixed weight dumbbell”, is a commercial qualty dumbbell that is constructed using various size cast iron plates, a chrome handle and a heavy-grade Allen bolt and end cap to hold it all together.

The design by nature is resistant to breakage and unsafe malfunctions allowing them to go all the way up to 200 lbs. each if needed.
Hampton Pro-Style Dumbbells - Most Pro-Style dumbbells are held together by a 5/8” Allen bolt that is tightened with a small Allen wrench. Hampton Pro-Styles feature a heavy-duty hex head bolt instead allowing a socket wrench to be used if dumbbells ever loosen. And for that reason, Hampton also offers and exclusive Dura-Lock end cap system that utilizes a spring washer that keeps constant tension on the hex bolt to help prevent it from loosening. Hampton offers three styles of Pro-Style handles. Classic straight SDH handles are knurled from shoulder to shoulder for a sure grip when performing heavy dumbbell exercises such as shrugs. 35mm deluxe ergonomic steel handles are beefy and shaped to better fit the palm of the hand. Urethane Snug-Grip handles also support the hands natural curve with a non-slip, durable urethane that some find to be more comfortable than steel handles.
