What customers say about "Features"
Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair)
  • Adjusts quickly and is coated so you don't get that metal on metal sound.
  • Great set of weights! In my opinion they're just as good as steel or rubber coated dumbbells.
  • End caps are rubber coated so incase you do end up hitting them together they don't make a loud plastic bang sound.
  • Unfortunately, the mechanism that holds the weight on the handle is plastic. In less than 2 years, it somehow broke on both of my weights.
  • One of the 2 dumbbells not longer rotates and a black plastic piece broke off.
Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Adjustable Dumbbell (Single)
  • Durable molding around metal plates provides for a smooth lift-off and quieter clanging metal plates!
  • It's incredibly simple to change weights by a quick turn of the dial!
  • The plastic base they come with is pretty durable, and I just set them on my basement floor and don't have any problems with it.
  • You have the option of utilizing the off weight selection, thus making one side of the dumbbell slightly heavier then the other .
  • This dumbbell does not feel as durable as the normal dumbbells.
