5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, April 23, 2009
This review is from: Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Adjustable Dumbbell (Single) (Sports)
I must say, I hemmed and hawed about buying these, as $600 total for the pair (yes, you do need to buy two) is a lot. But when you think about how many seperate weights you are getting in one pair of dumbbells, and the convenience of it, the space it saves, it was a no brainer.

First of all, I have to give Amazon MAJOR props for not only giving free super saver shipping on these (the shipping on these would be over $200 normally)- and even though Bowflex is offering free shipping right now as a promotion, these dumbbells are on a 4-6 week backorder with them and I wanted them ASAP. No joke, these things are in my garage right now (i did my first workout with them an hour ago after unpacking them which was cake by the way and assembling the bench- easy too). The best part? I placed the order TWO DAYS AGO. I figured for utilizing free super shipping an item this heavy would take at least 1-2 weeks. Nope, 2 days. The shipper they used called me and even left the packages neatly behind my house where I asked, another great experience by the way.

Now, about the product. I know I have only used them once so far, but I have been working out for years, and I know that these things are the real deal. I found a few negative reviews on these online (you can find negative reviews on anything if you look hard enough)- the biggest knock on these was that "you can't drop them or they will break" LOL....I dont know about you, but if you are a big enough meathead to feel the need to drop or throw your dumbbells down, dont buy these, you are better off in the playground with your tonka truck. Seriously, these things are very well made, SO EASY to use- I loved just turning the dials- I did 12 different excercizes, 12 different weight changes, all done effortlessly (the changing of the weight, my workouts are purposely difficult LOL)

Anyways, net net, I am EXTREMELY satisfied that I bought these and could not be happier with amazon on this one. If you are like I was and debating, don't even think twice, it is soooo worth it. These things are fantastic. THANK YOU!

Sometimes one drops dumbbells on accident, especially when they are very tired. While I don't know if these 1090s really do break if you drop them, if they did, that would be a pretty big disadvantage for me, even though dropping dumbbells is usually rare for me.

When I'm holding 70 pounds in each hand for some heavy DB chess press, I don't want to also worry about it being fragile >.<
