For what it is, it's a decent value. Don't expect top-quality weights, because that's not what you're paying for. However, both bars are very good and I was pleasantly surprised by the weight tree. Very sturdy and simple to put together. The directions for the tree are useless (only an exploded view and no actual instructions). Note: each of the "arms" on the tree have specific placements so be aware of that.
For 2 olympic bars, a tree and 255lbs of free weights (the 300 total includes the 45lb olympic bar) this is worth the purchase.
Cons:paint on the inside ring of the weights flakes off easily.
Made in China.
Forward sleeve on the weight tree slides off if not careful.
