    I don't have a lot of space for my workout equipment, and these dumbells are perfect. They don't take up a lot of space, they're easy to adjust, and the grips fell great. I haven't found any real issues with them.

      Comments about Bowflex 5lbs-52lbs SelectTech Dumbells:

      I've used these weights for over 7 years and they have held up great. Yes, they are made of plastic parts, so if you are one of those gym guys that likes to drop the weights or throw them around at the end of your sets, these are not for you. But, if you are looking for a compact set of full weights for your home gym, these are perfect. Definitely get the stand, you need it.

      Perfect for those doing P90X or any other BeachBody workouts at home. These are the best piece of equipment in my home gym and the first thing I would recommend for those starting at home.

        I've had my dumbells for at least six years without issue. If you treat them well they will last forever. Ordering the 1090s for Christmas, hope the work out just as well.

        Comments about Bowflex 5lbs-52lbs SelectTech Dumbells:

        i liked having the weights adjustable so it all together, but it also the part that broke. The plastic part that holds the weight plate on broke off so the weight now is entirely useless b/c can't hold the weights on it. shame b/c they worked nicely for a while. also the plates all have to fit in exactly the correct way for the adjustable wt. selector to hold on. plus hard to slide the dial too. Wish I could figure out how to replace the part since it only the handle with plastic thing that is cracked.

          Comments about Bowflex 5lbs-52lbs SelectTech Dumbells:

          This Bowflex dumbbells product is amazing. so far no complaint. i have been using it for about 4 months already. to be honest, guys, whatever you buy you have to take care of it. they are not indestructible, but if you take care of them, meaning that you would not drop them on the floor after each set you do, they look like they can last very long. also, you can perform a variety of exercises by following the DVD it comes with. For the most part, it is very convenient because it saves a lot of room in the house. one thing that i consider may go against it is that they are kind of expensive-- at the beginning i thought that at this price they would at least come with a stand , but they didnt. Other than this, i have no problem. i have mine, now is your turn...

          Comments about Bowflex 5lbs-52lbs SelectTech Dumbells:

          I have used these for about two years now and I disagree with the Gold's dumbbells being better. I find them difficult to adjust even when the plates are lined up properly and they are not as easy to line up in the first place. The Bowflex dumbbell plates on the other hand drop in to their slots easily and align on their own thanks to their nylon coating that makes them slide easily. When replacing the dumbbells on the rack, they drop in place and line up on their own. Even if the dumbbell is rotated from its proper position, it will rotate back and drop into the slot when you let go. I have had no problems with the plastic coating breaking and I do no baby them - but I don't drop them on the floor either. The Gold's are not a bad set, but the Bowflex are better made and easier to adjust.

          On the negative side, yes, they can be bulky on the lower weights since the bar doesn't change regardless of how much weight is on it. I consider this a fair trade off since you are getting a full range of dumbbells from 5 - 52.5 pounds in one package. Some don't like that you have to re-rack them to change the weight, but if you have a full set of individual dumbbells, you have to do that anyway. And the locking mechanisms is a safety feature to make sure the plates don't come off while you are using them.

              Fits perfect in the space that I have leaving room for other equipment. Bought it on sale and it came with a bench. I WOULD recommend it .I may have to get the 1090 model so if you think your gonna need heavier than 55 lbs you might want to get that instead.
