It is interesting to finally see Melissa Marcketta show her views of the ususal Bully Xtreme of slander and libel, despite Amazon's code of conduct. Melissa's and Bert Hernandez marketing can be viewed on the BullworkerUSA site; page Bully Xtreme. We encourage anyone to read this site and form their own opinions.
We are still offering a FREE PRODUCT for proof of Frank Sherrill.

When one has to endure the venomous charges in the face of obvious and posted facts, it is clear there are no scruples in dealing with these individuals. If the web pages of lies and distortions were not copied for future reference, these individuals would change them and say they never existed, as evidenced by the post and then deleted post by Marcketta.

Bullworker is the original. I still have a couple from the 70's.

M.Marcketta (A.K.A.- Bully Xtreme Plant) This hack is putting the cart before the horse and taking credit for it. Bullworker would not be around for 50 yrs if it did not work. This is nothing more than a cheap shot.

After watching the video that compares the Bullworker classic to the Bully Xtreme there is no doubt in my mind that the Bullworker is the superior product.. Now if this "Frank Sherrill" would do a video that debunks John Hughes demonstration that would be intersesting. But he can't, because he knows he doesn't have a leg to stand on. I do wish Amazon sold the Bully Xtreme just so I can compare the two and write a review. I just ordered the Bullworker classic and the ISO7X so I can compare THOSE two items. The stronger will be used on heavy days. The weaker will used on light days. If and when Amazon offers the Bully Xtreme I'll get one. Then I can see if it's better or worse than the ISO7X. But I seriously doubt that will happen because Bully Xtreme is a shady company and Amazon probably doesn't want to risk being linked to them. Bullworker classic: quiet... smooth... Bully Xtreme: CHICKA-CHACKA-CHICKA-CHACKA-CHICKA-CHACKA. You decide.

I first purchased a Bully Extreme in 2007. The product arrived quickly enough and worked well enough. I have read horror stories of people ordering this product and not recieving it nonetheless. I later purchased a Bullworker Steel Bow as I needed the versitility of the shorter unit. THe Steel Bow is a much higher quality unit. Moreover, I damaged it owing to my own improper manipulation to the product. I called the company. A humanbeing answered on the second ring. They promptly sent the replacement part, free of charge. Remember, I broke it through my misuse. I liked the Steel Bow so mcuh that I purchased four more, one for my wife, one for each of my two kids, and one for a disabled friend.

What a weird discussion. Here is my experience using the various devices.

In the early 1970s, an older second cousin had a Bullworker. In the late 1970s, my brother bought one, and I borrowed it from him for most of 1982. Even though it had one tube sliding into another, in terms of effect and resistance, it was very similar in usage and effect to the Bully Extreme 3 that I bought in 2010. The Bully Extreme 3 has two tubes sliding over one, but I couldn't tell much difference between it and the original Bullworker, except that the latter had bigger hand grips.

In 1983 I bought a Bullworker X5. This had two sliding tubes over one, but this was a useful feature as the two sliding tubes could easily be gripped, enabling different exercises. It also had two straps on each side, which gave different extensions. depending on which strap or straps were held. The Bullworker X5 had less resistance, which made it easier to use, though you wouldn't have been too pleased with it if you were a very strong man and could easily compress it all the way.

The ISO7X I bought in 2011 because it was going cheap. It has what looks like two straps on each side like the Bullworker X5, but they were a cheat, as it didn't matter if one grabs one or two straps - the extension is always the same. In terms of usage, it is very similar to my Bully Extreme 3, having slightly less resistance, and bigger hand grips. I find the straps more comfortable than Bully Extreme 3's cables on my hands and bare feet.

That said, it was worth buying the Bully Extreme 3's just for the "Revised Training Chart" that one downloads from their site. The 42 exercises were much better thought out than those in my original Bullworker, Bullworker X5 and ISO7X.

I recently got the smaller Steel Bow from Bullworker - a neat little gadget, with interchangeable springs. The white one is good for my wife. I mainly use the grey one, and the black one would be very handy for someone a lot stronger than me. It is handy for travelling, and for doing some of those tough to do exercises with the other units (like the one where one compresses behind one's back).

I did chuckle when I saw the John Hughes video comparing his Bullworker to the Bully Extreme. I don't know which version of Bully Extreme he was using, but when he showed his Bullworker having a lot more resistance than Bully Extreme, my thought was that if he were using my model of Bully Extreme, I would be unable to budge his Bullworker in half the exercises.

Anyhow, I've pointed out the differences in the units I own, and I'm not going rubbish any of them. I regularly rotate through all of them. I feel like I get a great workout from Bully Extreme, but eventually my hands and feet get sore from the cables, and then I switch to ISO7X. After using that for a while, I switch to the more versatile Bullworker X5 with it's greater range of movement, but because of it's lesser resistance, I don't feel I get as great a workout from it.

I doubt Bully Xtreme is a going business anymore. The "owner" is a Hernandez guy, (Frank Sherrill seems to be a fiction-never seen a pix of him) and their address is in a not to toney house on a residential street in Union, New Jersey which can be seen on Google earth. The Bully Xtreme seems to be marketed by a women's zumba dance studio in that area. Hughes Bullworker is a going business, I wouldn't go near the other, and as I said, I doubt it is a going business anymore.

Good report, however I am a little curious for every time you wrote the word "going" did you mean to write "doing"?

It's a term some use as in "the business is not a going concern anymore", meaning it is out of business or better yet not a viable entity/business. I also agree entirely with your post about Bully Xtreme. NOTE: Currently the ISO7X is not be sold as it has been recalled for a safety defect.

silly me, you had that little word "a" that I didn't notice before the word "going". "Going" makes total sense now. My boo boo.
