I spent much more time than I am proud to say looking for the best adjustable dumbbell set. I looked everywhere, compared dozens of options until I finally decided to get these. And I want to tell you why I preferred these to any other brand or PowerBlock model. These give you the best of both world: fine, quick low weight adjustments, with a high maximum height limit. You can still go up in 5 pounds increments for every level you add on, up to 30 pounds, and then 10 pound increments up to 70. By subtracting 1 or 2 of the adder weights, you can subtract approximately 2.5 or 5 pounds from the aforementioned values, giving you incredible flexibility.
1. The fact that these went past 55 pounds beat Bowflex, Weider, or any other brand. May not look as pretty at first, but you get to learn to appreciate their simplistic beauty. The design also enhances exercises: extra grips, hold one dumbbell with two hands for over head triceps presses, and flat sides make them easier to hold on your thigh between reps. (see pics for price comparison)
2. They are far more compact than any other brand, and the fact that the length of it only extends with the weight means greater range of motion and maneuverability to get your exercises done correctly and not awkwardly. Unlike Bowflex, where the length is the same for 2.5 and 52.5 pounds.
3. Plethora of models to choose from to fit your style and preference.
The classic 50 does not come with the adder weights, so that cuts down on your choices (which some people wouldn't care too much about). It allows you to increase weight in 5 pound increments all the way to 50 pounds, but it is not expandable. So if your planning on doing dumbbell presses with more than 50 pounds now or in the future, consider the Elite, Sport, or the Classic Plus.
The Personal Trainer is about the same, except you get the flexibility of the adder weights. Not expandable.
Before buying this, I bought the Sport 9.0 Stage II (70 pound set) and can go up to 90 and more. The opening for your hand was larger and it came with a contoured grip. Although the contoured grip was nicer to curl with, it put very uncomfortable and painful pressure on my palms when I used them for bench pressing, which were a real bummer. The Classic have a straight grip, much more "classic" and comfortable, at least for me. In addition, they only increased in increments of 10 with each level (minus 2.5 or 5 considering adder weights). But I liked to keep from having to remove the adder weights more often then i needed to.
Elite models are just like the Sport (up to 90 lbs and more, increments of 10 +/- adder weights), except they look like the classic (straight grip, narrow foam padded opening).
Urethane models: your paying more for a more polished and quieter system. Can't say much about them though.
Like some, i thought the narrow entrance for the grip would be constricting, but they were absolutely no trouble at all (you can technically remove the padded bars and give yourself more room, but I wouldn't recommend it)
Clattering might bother some people, but you quickly get used to it.
Price, its a bit expensive, but for what you get, its worth every penny. Price shouldn't be your biggest concern when your looking for something dependable that will last you a long time.
After we purchased these dumbbells, we sold 4 sets of traditional dumbbells.
Their square weight plate design also help with storgage as they lay flat on the floor between sets.
Another factor for me was the transition when switching weights. Trust me that it takes about 2 seconds per dumbbell to change the weight, is that quick and simple, and it feels very safe. I was a little paranoid that the selector pin might come off and that I was going to suffer and accident with plates falling on me, but honestly, the selector pin is very sturdy and secured, no problems what so ever. I have no regrets and the price I paid for them for the weight I bought beat any other brand.
