The draw back? The weights lasted for a month. Even with delicate care, the dumbbells still broke on me. I have both models, the 552 and 1090 and the long-lasting quality was not there. Bowflex will give you a limited warranty for a year if you submit it during the first month. But it's limited. And they are more then willing to sell you their parts (and labour) for a marked up price.
Conclusion: They have a great design but the plastic parts will never be able to handle the everyday use of what dumbbells are intended for. If this were made of all metal parts perhaps it would of been a different story.
I wouldn't recommend anyone in buying them, no matter how gently you intend on using them. I was so disappointed in these I had to review it, which is a first.
First, my home gym is small and I didn't want to loose a lot of space for a conventional weight set. So was looking for an adjustable set.
Second, other reviewers and other sites had given these weights good ratings and reviews.
Third, for the price, these weights can work out cheaper than most conventional sets of multiple weights.
Starting at 5lb, and going up in 2.5 lb increments to 25 lb, (5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, 17.5, 20, 22.5, 25) then in 5 lb increments after that ( 30, 35, 40, 45, 50) finishing off at 52.5 lb. It's basically 15 pairs of weights.
Adjustment is fast and easy, simply change the dial at each end of each weight. The weights stay balanced by picking up the same weights on each side of the grip. Takes a couple of seconds to go from one weight to another.
Easy to keep clean as all weights can be taken out of the base individually for cleaning/sanitation, and go back in in a certain order only.
Plates lock in place and feel solid on the bar/grip. I trust them overhead, upside down, etc. (I tried to shake them loose first, stayed in place and solid.) Feels good in the hand, and not overly bulky on smaller weights as some mentioned. Grip is good and firm.
I read some reviews about them breaking/locking, the ONLY way i can think of breaking them is if they are being slammed to the ground or dropped from height after a set. Simply put, look after them and they will serve you for years I'd say.
Mine came extremely well packed, delivered in a couple of days to the door. Total package IS HEAVY. Comes in at about 140lb I believe.
Mine also came with an instructional DVD, training guide and info book.
If I had the space and wasn't seeing a move in the future I likely would've gone with a complete bar bell rack.

Work as advertised, weight ratings are accurate. I can see what people mean when they say that the rings that hold the plates are breaking, they are plastic and prolonged use looks... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Nicholas Z Lea
