Now this has got to be the greatest idea ever for anyone who loves to lift weights. It makes everything so much easier when you don't have to unscrew the thing and add and take off weights every time you want to do a different exercise. All you do is turn the know to the weight you want and lift. It's so simple and so convenient. No more changing weights for a few minutes between exercises and slowing you down. Now you can go right from one exercise to the next because it only takes a few seconds to change the weight. I absolutely love these dumbbells and think they are a must have for any avid weightlifter. It really does make life so much easier and it saves so much time during your workout. These things are amazing! Nuff said!
I have a very expensive set of selectech 1090 dumbells that are useless. I have had them for a couple of months and due to a flawed design which boflex refuses to aknowledge they are unable to be used. The problem is the release mechanisim in the cradle breaks completely off after minimal use so you can not turn the knobs anymore. I contacted Bofles this morning and they would do nothing except for offer to sell me new cradles. Get some good old fashion iron and save yourself some grief!!!!!
