    I have the bowflex adjustable dumb bells and they are pretty good. I might consider selling them but they cost me and I would have to sell them for a good bit.

    I bought them back in 2008 for about $1100 but that included the stand and bench seat. They go up to 90lbs each.

    Yup. I've tried selling them for 900 but no luck. They look brand new and I've only used them like 10 times. I keep telling myself one day I'm going to put the beer down and start lifting them.....one day.

    FWIW out on the COP's what we ALWAYS get is the bowflex brand adjustable dumbbells. But all the reviews I've read put the powerblocks as pretty damn good quality too. I'm in the market for a set myself, but 50lbs a piece really won't do anything for me other than shoulder work really.

    I've seen them. I think the price comes out to being about the same either way. I'll just keep my eyes out for a good deal eventually to pick up. It's the kind of thing I'll be patient for, the gym is free for me. :)

    I got my powerblocks not too long ago and I love them. They're much more compact than the bowflex ones and appear to be much more durable. Simply put they're much more simple and well built. The starter set is around $300 and then you can add on another 50lbs or so for another $200. I love these things.

    i was looking at the power blocks but, they limit your exercises by the grip you can take and they don't have the ability to be used on a bar bell. thats why i went with the iron master they are solidly built the weights can be used on a barbell supplied by them at an extra charge of course.

    the only thing that stinks is they take longer to change between weights due to the spinning collar design on the bar bell and the dumbells aren't that much better either with their giant retainer screws.
