Build Huge Forearm Strength performing all your usual work!

 

Incredibly heavy duty and perfectly finished, these Thick Grip Dumbbell Handles are a great way to build huge forearms while performing all your usual dumbbell work.

 

Available with 2″, 2.5″ or 3″ Handles – Choose from the drop down menu.

 

50mm Olympic ends to take Olympic Plates – Check Out Our New Eco Dumbbell Plates Here…

 

The handles are finished with a grippy ‘matchbox’ textured finish for a positive grip.

 

The handles on Watson Thick Grip Dumbbells measure approximately 5.5” long.

 

To work out the loading area take 5.5” away from the total dumbbell length and divide by 2.

 

So on an 18” dumbbell this will be: 18 – 5.5 / 2 = 6.25” loadable space each end.

 

Sold as a pair.

Orders shipped outside EU

Once your order has been manufactured and dispatched from Watson HQ, you will automatically be assigned to an agent who will help you to clear your shipment when it arrives. The contact details of your agent can be found on the Bill of Lading. You will receive this once we have received confirmation that the ship has actually set sail. You can also use the information on the Bill of lading to track your shipment. If you have your own agent that you want to use to clear your shipment, that is fine, please send us the details at the time of ordering, or at least one week prior to shipping.

USA Customers Only

You will need a customs broker to help you clear your shipment. You cannot do this by yourself. If you do not have one that is fine, we can put you in touch with a customs broker that we use for all of our customers in the States that do not have one. A power of attorney will need to be set up so that they can act on your behalf and help you clear the shipment.

Please note: We simply cannot ship anything to the States without this being in place. Failure to get this sorted ahead of time will effect shipping times.

Import Tax & Duties

As you are ordering from outside the UK there is not VAT on your order. Once the goods arrive at port there will be import taxes / duties and customs clearance costs that must be paid for by the importer of goods before the shipment can be released and delivered. These costs are not included in your shipping quote. We have no control over these costs and they vary country to country. Usually a small percentage of your total order value. For further information please contact your local tax office.

Once import tax and duties have been paid, your shipment will then get released from customs and become available for delivery.

Depending on what you have ordered, we may be able to ship on single pallets therefore a forklift is not required. Single Pallets can be unloaded via tail gate which is on the back of the truck. It will still then be your responsibility to move the items into place.. If you are unsure whether your order/delivery requires a forklift, please enquire.

I bought the thick grip 18″ olympic dumbbell handles after being unsatisfied with the mostly 20 or 22″ handles commonly available which I find are a bit lengthy for most exercises. Watson is the only place ANYWHERE I looked that sold a quality handle in various sizes. The 18″ is a great compromise between length and weight capacity–I would not go with a longer handle. For my purposes the 6.25″ of usable space is plenty–I can fully load five 10# plates on each end with a Raw Built clamping collar which is as much as I will ever need. I find myself using these quite often so I plan to buy another set in perhaps 16 or 14″ size as a semi-permanent set for lower weight.

Each handle weighs in at 5 pounds. The steel stock is substantial–at least 3/16″ thick, if not more like a quarter inch, and the welds are beefy. Before buying I researched opinions and reviews on several popular forums and some reviewers noted that the weld was on the outside of the flanges. I assume Watson has corrected their design as this is not the case for the bars I received. These flanges were welded on the inside so the face that meets the plates is completely flat.

The matchbox texture is nice and gives a great grip without destroying your gloves or hands like a diamond texture does.

Although shipping cost to the US is substantial, the total price of these handles was about equivalent to other handles I was considering so price was reasonable.

Overall these are excellent handles and a great value for a small garage-based home gym–thanks!!

I received the product very quickly (I live in Israel). The product was exactly what I expected. The black coating really comfortable grip, and of course the thickness of 50 mm is much more comfortable than the standard handles. In summary product and service 200%.
The only downside price a bit high, although I assume that the quality costs

I purchased just a single 2″ handle to train the 1 arm press. Watson’s were more than happy to quote me for just the one handle, as oppose to a pair. The usual top notch build quality and does exactly what I need it to. 16″ long, so long enough to get the plates on without being so long it becomes awkward. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the matchbox texture, I was worried the non-knurl might impede my grip, but it is totally fine and your hands still sticks to it. If anything it will aid my grip over the long haul. I would definitely recommend these handles to anyone interested and have the utmost trust in the Watson product range. (I also own the ‘Animal’ Dumbbell handle, this being my all time FAVOURITE purchase from Watson’s!)

I bought my thick grip dumbbells handles for my birthday. They arrived quick and in some very good and hard to open packaging which I loved.

The dumbbells themselves are amazing! I’ve used them on myself and clients. My forearm strength has increased massively and so has one of my clients who has had very weak forearms causing them to give up on sets. We now don’t have that problem. Ever since using the Watson thick grip dumbbells there hasn’t been a single time where we have had to stop a set because her forearms have been to fatigued to carry on the set.

Would I recommend the thick grip dumbbells? Hell yeah they are brilliant!

These thick grip dumbells are excellent quality and feel great to use. The black grip is comfortable and the dumbells feel solid and built to last. I train in a garage which is relatively cold and damp, meaning the exposed bar ends are prone to discolouration and (eventually) rust, but a little maintenance and WD40 soon takes care of that. Very pleased with the dumbells and the service from Watson.

Watson is the best at what they do!! I love these dumbbells and so do all my clients. I live and train in the US, people always question why I would buy something not American and I explain, if you want the best you have to go to the best and if that’s in England what does it matter.. Thank you to Watson and their staff for prompt customer service and for building great products!!!

Great quality and very comfortable.I bought the thick grip dumbbell handles 18″ with thickness of 2″, perfect for each exercise.

I think that I will buy the thick grip dumbbell 18″ with thickness of 3″ too for a training even harder.

I was blown away by the quality of the dumbell handles, I’ve read great things about Watson products but it’s only when you see it in person that you realise for once internet reviews couldn’t be more true, they really are outstanding. Now I have no excuse not to make the effort to train with them. Keep up the great products and Uk manufacturing.

I wanted to purchase a more sturdy pair of dumbbells as cheaper ones I’ve previously purchased elsewhere just weren’t cutting it. These are certainly sturdy. I ordered the 2” grip in 16” length and they weigh around 2.5kg per dumbbell. Very good dumbbells.

Only downside I found was when unpacking them the stainless steel on both ends of both dumbbells was slightly scratched and scuffed. Not too much of an issue as over time that will happen but it did give a “second hand” type feeling to them.

    Sorry to hear about the damage to the dumbbell ends when they arrived with you. We’re happy to exchange if you’re not happy otherwise mention this when placing any future order and we will sort you out a special deal.
    Thank you for your order and support.

I brought the 20″, 3″ wide dumbbell handles and holy cow. Freaking incredible, workout are so much more difficult. Received an incredible pump with lighter plates than with regular dumbbells. I may cancel my gym membership because of Watson’s equipment.
