    The locking mechanisim was not working after a month. I contacted Nautilus, the parent company of bowlfex, and they sent me a new handle in less than a week. I’v yet to try it out though.

    These selecttech 1090 dumbbells may break at higher weight settings. The dumbbells are not entirely made of metal. The discs holding the weight plates in place are quite fragile. I used the dumbbells at 75 lbs. each, and the discs holding the heaviest plates on both dumbbells are breaking (practically only the discs holding the heaviest plates are breaking). I did drop the dumbbells at a few inches (~3-5 in.) high though, at 75 lbs. each for benching. However, the manual claims that I may drop the dumbbells below a foot high (~12 in.).

    The bench and stand by bowflex are great, however. However, I should have went with the dumbbells by ironmaster, which seems like I may drop them. Note that the bowflex dumbbells can switch weight settings quite faster than the much more durable dumbbells by ironmaster.

    P.S. I work out in-door, and I dropped the dumbbells on regular/soft carpet.

    These are the best dumbbells I have ever seen – and it isn’t even close. They are very easy to use and very well-made. I have a shoulder injury so I particularly like the fact that any shoulder exercise done with these can be done independent of the other hand/arm/shoulder. I highly recommend these weights.

  5. I bought the bowflex 1090 about a month ago. At first I really liked them until the locking mechanism got stuck. After figuring out how to rotate the dumbbell back to normal I was happy again. Then, one of the dumbbells was not locking like it should causing some weights to fall off. This really sucks when you have to do repairs in the middle of your workout. I think one needs to go in for repair but I am still using it with special care. I love the things other than the above mentioned problem.
