Could be better
on June 19, 2010
The bands are high quality, what you'd expect for a great deal less then some of their competitors. They get the job done. But they fail in several areas.
I really don't like the handles, on some exercises the handle tends to lean to the side, and the plastic is a rather rough on the side of your hands when you've got it stretched out and the thing starts to slide on you. Handles like the official p90x ones would of been a hundred times better. The fabric and plastic just hurts your hands too much after awhile of heavy use.
The bands need to be able to stack together to increase the tension like many other brands that use clips instead of the directly attached to handle method here. Really annoying that I can't put more then one band on one handle.
The door attachment makes me terrified to use it. It literally seems like a strap with some metal sewn in. Something bulkier would of been awesome, I'm worried the thing's going to fly out from under the door and crack me in the face.
The bands are worth the price, but I'd say pay another 20 bucks and get some really nice ones with comfortable handles, and let's you stack the bands together instead, these make a good budget alternative though.
