The stand is worth the extra money. Its made for the dumbbells and you avoid having to pick them up off the floor and/or having the dumbbell holder lift up with them. Its easy to assemble too.
Got hit with over $100 in customs fees upon delivery with no warning so don’t order if you’re in Canada.
The stand is a must have. It is the perfect height for me (I'm 5'11). It is durable and also looks good.
The stand meet all expectations. My only complaint was I ordered the grey but they sent me black. I didn't want to deal with having to send it back.
