I recently saw on here that SS did 5 Globes in the past - fair point they do have a flat bottom which is not ideal but you can put them on the non flat part for lifts. 

The 5 weights are:

  1. 31kg
  2. 42kg
  3. 53kg
  4. 64kg
  5. 78kg

I was lucky enough to get some of these second hand but am missing the lighter two. A message to SS reveals they are getting them back in again within 12 weeks so just a heads up for anyone UK based who might be interested etc.

Just an update - they have a range of 9 seen here: https://www.strengthshop.co.uk/weights-bars/dumbbells/circus-dumbbells.html

The prices appear to be fairly decent tbh. 

I'd prefer proper globes without flat bottom but these are still good to have and one can always work with them flat side up etc.

The handle measurement is similar to Thomas inch dumbbell?

The handles are actually an inch longer than the original Inch. @temmmeeee pointed this out to me I believe.

Same diameter and tbh the length being different does not overly surprise me - they have the flat bottoms as well so really not proper globes but close enough. 

Do you think the longer handle makes them easier or harder to lift?

Longer handles and the 2 i own don't have a perfectly round handle like most other inch replicas. They are sorta oval shaped. I don't think it makes too much of a difference except cleans feel weirder and lifts with excess tilt are much easier because you can get them at more of a vertical angle with the longer handle. Strict and even lifts are a bit tricky because you have to grab the handle in the perfect spot but that just takes a little practice and adjusting to master if you have the strength to lift it.
