Just to start off, I did not buy this product from Amazon but from a local sporting store near me. I have had the BowFlex 552 since January 2013 and it has been heavily used for the past 4 years by myself, wife, family members as well as many friends. I did not just open the box and write a review just because, this product as been in heavy use for the past 4 years with VERY minor issues.
Excellent solution for P90X or those that don’t want a house full of weights

I was torn between these and the PowerBlock dumbells I kept reading about. I had a chance to check out the 2008 and prior model Bowflex Select Tech’s at Dicks Sporting Goods, and I remember thinking about how easy it was to spin the dials to adjust the weights.
Best Adjustable Weights

Quality weights with adjustable settings. What more can I say? The one downside I have with them is the handle and it is the reason for the 4 stars. It is a pretty important part of the weight and for me it just doesn’t feel good at all. They put some kind of weird textured pattern on it and it makes gripping it uncomfortable, to me, at the higher weights. I bought gloves for that reason and it takes away the issue.

We got these mainly for my husband, and he loves them, but we both lift. They are very nice, good quality, and work as described. These dumbbells have pretty much been reviewed to death, they are pretty awesome, and we don’t regret the purchase. I only wanted to make the point that, for female lifters, they are quite bulky. This is something I hadn’t considered. It’s just like no matter how I turn/adjust them, they are so bulky that they keep running into my body. For this reason, I’m just more comfortable using my curl bar and regular dumbells. As I said, we are still happy with them, this is just something I wanted to note for perspective female buyers/users, as I hadn’t read this in any of the reviews I had read prior to purchase , and it’s just not something I had considered.
I’ve done P90x and X3 using traditional dumbbells with plates and the screw which was fine as long as I used the same weight for

I spent several weeks trying to decide between the Powerblocks and the Select Techs. I kept going back and forth as I saw pros and cons for each as I read reviews. I was looking for dumbells for home work outs. I’ve done P90x and X3 using traditional dumbbells with plates and the screw which was fine as long as I used the same weight for the various exercises as it takes waaaay too long to change between them or utilized resistance bands when I needed lighter weight. I just started Body Beast and the whole point of the program is various reps and various weights so I needed one of two things: Individual fixed dumbells and a lot of them or something that would allow me to change weights quickly between sets.Individual bells are pricey… at a $1 per pound, I was looking at several hundred dollars for what I needed. So my best options, after some research were the Powerblocks and Select Techs. I’m three weeks into BB and I am very pleased with these Select Techs. One of the knocks on the Powerblocks was changing the weights at smaller increments. From what I read, changing them at 10 lb increments was easy but anything less was somewhat time consuming. That lone con was the dealbreaker for me. I spoke to a friend that was doing BB and he said that a lot of sets, you increase at weights below 10 lbs, and he was right. The Select Techs make it super easy to change weights at 2.5 lb and 5 lb increments…. So easy that, even though he moves quickly through the session, I never have to hit the pause button to place the weights in the tray, dial in a new weight and pick them back up. Gotta say I am glad I chose these- seem sturdy although I make a point of never dropping them and they look good and feel good in your hands. They are long but that hasn’t caused any issues. The dial is smooth and seems very well made. I also like the lock function that keeps the weights in place and will not let you lift the bells out of the tray if the dial isn’t set correctly. It’s reassuring when they are hovering over your face…. They are also very quiet and do not bang around. I would highly recommend these, especially if you are doing any of the home workout programs that move fast and require various weights.
