I got to say you guys aren't really fair with the way you kill it. People these are adjustable and you got to be careful when using them. Seriously.
░░░░░Lets break it down, Pros/Cons mixed░░░░░
❖ Number one complaint people have is that they aren't sturdy and I disagree, they are very well made and safe. You cannot drop them. It gives ample warning in the manual as there are moving parts and it simply isn't designed to take that much abuse. I often do work to failure however have till have the strength guide the dumbbells to a light landing on the floor this really shouldn't be an issue.
❖ Another complaint people have is that you have to put them back on their stand at an exact angle which is true but I really never noticed as it really isn't that difficult.
❖ Another complaint I have seen is that the weight is off I tested this and it was off by a couple of ounces, that rumor simply isn't true.
❖ Another complaint that comes to my mind form # of people is that they are too expensive (if you can't find a deal) and too bulky with the lower weights (as the length stays the same) however you get used to adjusting to the size really quick, at least I did. I have older series I gave away which I bought and they are made to last.
I am very happy with my purchase and am seeing great results so far. If you can find a good deal and trust yourself to never drop the things you should have no problems.

Well, it turns out that their handles have a slightly raised beveled edge on both sides of the handle. It looks great, and at lower weight it's nothing that you would notice, other than aesthetically. However, once I got to 65+ lbs per handle, the bevels would dig into my palms as soon as I started a press rep, and that edge would cause physical pain. That beveled edge runs along most of the handle, on either side, and it's basically acting as the first and closest point of contact with the inside of your hand. When you have 65, 70, 75lbs of weight pressing down into this thin strip, the pain makes it very difficult to actually concentrate on the form of the press itself, and this is happening in both hands at the same time. I tried changing grips right as I lifted them from the cradles, and also while the dumbbells were sitting on my legs prior to lying back to start the presses, and it does not help, there's no comfortable position where the bevels are not pressing into some part of your palm. I even purchased padded gloves, and unfortunately that did not help.The 552s have a completely different handle design that is much more comfortable, but obviously doesn't offer the same weight.
Very sad that I couldn't continue using them, I contacted Bowflex for a return after several weeks of trying to work through the pain. Bowflex customer service was awful in the return. They refused to even talk about paying for shipping them back, despite it clearly being a bad design on their part. Shipping costs about $1 per lb, so $200 to return a defective product that costs $600 to purchase. No discounts, no offers or apologies, and when I wrote a follow up email regarding this experience, they completely ignored it.
Basically Bowflex is happy to sell you their product, and as long as there's no problems, everything is good, but if there is a problem with their product, they do not stand behind it, regardless of defects, even for their loyal customers.
I ended up getting the Ironmaster 75lb set, and those are regular handles, no discomfort at the same weight, but now I'll have to pay more if/when I outgrow 75lbs.
- They can go up by 2.5 LB increments! I'm pretty sure Powerblocks can only go up by 5LB increments.
- They are sturdy and CAN last, just don't drop them (I'm sure that's the same with the Powerblocks)
- Sleek look, easier to change weights with the dials instead of pulling pins in and out like with Powerblocks
- these dumbbells are pretty WIDE for some exercises, but this might not be a problem for you depending on your body type. I'm 5ft7 130lbs and for me if I try to do a standard dumbbell chest press I can't quite squeeze them together as much as I'd like to. I encounter few issues with other exercises.
-You can't drop them. Now naturally this will be the case with nearly all adjustable dumbbell sets, however, it is something to remember especially if you go to a gym as well and are used to letting them drop at the end of a set. Even a small drop (foot or shorter) is not good for these.
-The handles are pretty "spiky" on these. With heavier weights they can really dig into your hands even if you have calluses but this isn't a problem if you have a pair of lifting gloves.
