EDIT: Apparently this is only $298 on Amazon, actually. Free shipping if you have prime. I don't know if that's their regular price, or if they are matching, though.

@wheaties466: They're normally way more than that ($500-$700) This is the 90lb version, and shipping is free with this coupon. Shipping is normally $129.

The $298 at Amazon looks to be for just a SINGLE dumbbell. The $359.40 at bowflexselettech.com is for the PAIR.

@kekspernikai: That's only for one. The price through Bowflex is for a set. It would cost roughly $600 for the same thing through Amazon.

edit: @wootystephen: Ha....Beat me to it.

I guess this is a good deal then.

@wheaties466: Yeah, if you don't have the time to just add or remove weights from any dumbbell.

Any deal on the SelectTech 552 ?

vote-for4vote-against

I lift things up, I put them down.

@benyust2: also the space savings as well.

@tucnguyen: and interval type workouts. I only get 15 seconds in between each set, so changing weights takes too long. These fit in the corner of my office (workout room combo) and i can change them easily.

Costco had some in the Spring for about $100 less than this, but I don't see them online anymore. They were branded Nautilus, but I've heard it is just the "store brand" for these. I really like them!

Praise jesus hallelujah!

I wanted to buy these and was hemming and hawing and upset about the price since it had been on sale for cheap in the past! Woot!!!

@zach20245: That's not these, that's the 552's.

vote-for1vote-against

Ah. Wasn't aware there was a difference. I see it now, thanks.

vote-for1vote-against

$349 at Amazon looks to be about the best deal for the 552's - good for the less-than-massive bodybuilders that can use 5 to 52.5 pounds in 2.5 pound increments. 5 pound increments can be too hard for some people.

The quality on these are questionable. My buddy's grip slipped on the way to putting these down and they fell maybe 8inches, and the changing mechanism started going screwy. I have powerblocks, and no problems thus far. Just a heads-up.

There's a code for a free 2-in-1 stand when you buy one of these dumbells...my guess is that you can't combine offers. Anyone try this?

Every once in a while the 552 pair goes on sale for 260ish through bowflex, I picked up last time and couldn't be happier. Perfect companion for p90x and similar workouts that requires many dumbbells and quick weight changes. Only issue I have with the 552's is that they are a little long, makes curls a little cumbersome.

vote-for-3vote-against

Powerblocks are far superior IMO.

vote-for0vote-against

I have been looking to get a pair of these or powerblocks... would rather pwerblocks but with a deal like this might have to go with these, unless anyone knows a deal with powerblocks?

vote-for0vote-against

The Ironmasters are way better than these or powerblocks although they are a bit more expensive. They are much more durable and can be expanded up to 125 pounds. The best thing is they are much more compact. The width actually expands and contracts with the weight (though the width stays minimal compared to these). The bowflex ones, regardless of weight, are the width of a massive dumbbell which really annoys me on certain exercises.

I'd check out a video on youtube before buying these to see how wide they really are. Honestly, if I was going to buy these, I'd just buy some standard olympic adjustable dumbbells.

Query for those who say just use olympic dumbbells...

You seriously have 180lbs of weight in your home that will fit evenly on the bars? And can be adjusted to the amounts that these offer?

Off the top of my head that's...

4 x 45lb plates = 90lbs (pair)
4 x 25lb plates = 50lbs
8 x 10lb plates = 20lbs, 40lbs, add for 70lbs
4 x 5lb plates = 10lbs, add for 30lbs, 60lbs, 80lbs
4 x 2.5 plates = Add for 15lbs, 25lbs, 35lbs, 45lbs, 55lbs, 65lbs, 85lbs

So for like 85lbs you'd need a 2.5lb, 5lb, 10lb, and 25lb on each side of the handle. I doubt that would even fit.

@knrg: I have a 100 lb dumbell made up at home for rowing, 25 and 2 10's on each side (bar's roughly 10 lbs) - fits fine with room to spare. I'd steer clear of the 45 or 35 plates, they just get awkwark, but using <= 25 plates you can make some heavy dumbells. Changing weights is a different story, gotta take off the collars and peel everything off - these definitely would feel more solid and adjust much easier.

vote-for1vote-against

@knrg The olympic handles are incredibly cheap. For weights, yes, you'd have to buy a lot of plates. However, plates have the added bonus they they are universally compatible with other equipment. You can find pulldown bars, leg extensions, leg presses and other olympic bars that will use them.

Another reason I like the Ironmasters. They make add-ons for their bench, like a pulldown, that can use the dumbbells.

Personally, I bought the Ironmasters and would definitely recommend them over anything else. I just can't stand how wide the bowflex ones are and Powerblocks feel awkward. If you're going to shell out the cash for your own dumbbells, its worth spending the bit extra.
