Hexagonal 1" dumbbell plates?

Anyone know if there is such thing as 1" hexagonal dumbbell plates?

I have a couple of pair of 1" dumbbell handles and a slew of round plates. I use those a fair amount, but they're no good for renegade rows or manmakers. Need to have hex dumbbells for those, really.

I'd prefer not to buy whole hex dumbbells if I can avoid it. Hex plates (interlocking if possible) would seem to be great if I could find them.

A quick (but not all that thorough) Google search didn't give any hits. Asking the masses here.

Thanks,

- Mark

Yeah...not really interested in the powerblock-kinda things. The handles that I have are just fine, so I would like to just reuse those if possible. Also, I like adding my Fat Gripz to my handles, which (dunno) might not work very well on the more specialized powerblock things.

All links WFS....here is another idea you could just call or check specs of plate company like below who makes hexagonal weights and see if they have a smaller bore that will fit your curl bars...you would have to prolly use their five or tens but that would work right

I know you said you wanted to reuse your own handles, but if you wanted to go with something new, the Ironmaster line is pretty legit.
