    Stop shaking the camera to make a point about what your saying! Just say it
    and keep the camera still. Thanks for the review, I’ve been looking for a
    set of dumb bells for home use. The main draw back is the overall length of
    both types. 15″ to 16″ is just to long for weights under 25 pounds.
    However the amount of space and cost for a all in one system is the payoff
    for size issues.

    For those interested, Sears has had them available for $250 for quite a
    while, which is a good deal. I paid $320 on Amazon, which was the best
    deal at the time.

    usually when someone does a comparison review, they have 2 products. This
    isn’t a VS video, it’s your review of the gold’s dumbellls

    Had the bowflex ones (they broke) had these (they broke) too many intricate
    small parts. Now have the powerblocks and ironmasters and gosh they will
    last you forever.

    I’ve never seen Gold’s or Epic before. I bought a set of these with a bench
    included for $349 at Costco about 6 years ago with the Weider brand on it.
    Identical but with red tabs and Weider logo on the stand. Interesting. They
    still work great btw.

    Have them branded as weider, 4 years with them not a single issue. The
    width is a small problem factor. And I love the grip.

    i have the bowflex and yes i agree dont drop them but……. they are real
    good adjustable dumbells, just dont toss them around…. bowflex; best
    money ive spent

    I bought the bow flex. i dont like that you do need a stand but other than
    that they are great and i have not had any issues and in no way do I plan
    on dropping them but crap happens. I think its all personal preference.

    Hey, can you do push ups with them? Like can you put your weight on the
    dumbbells without tweaking the plates? Thanks

    I agree with Angelene Davis great review, answered my questions and gave me
    a close look at the weights. Thanks man I ordered a couple days back and
    I’m glad I did.

    Great review, especially since you demonstrated how the mechanism works. I
    like the fact that the mechanism is metal and not plastic. If I ever see
    them at the price you paid, I’ll buy them in a heart beat.

    I like the alternative; unfortunately I still need to wait a couple of
    years for the alternative to be heavy enough

    I weighed them and they are right on. 10lbs unloaded and exactly 50lbs
    fully loaded. Each plate weighs 2.5lbs.

    @coNsPirAcy083 where dd you find that price?? send me the link please 😀 or
    at least the stores name online haha

  15. DreadlockDrummer

    but at the same time, i wouldnt want to spend my money on something that is
    easier to break, so thats why im also hesitant to purchase bowflex

    The bowflex ones had a max of 90lbs and you can get them off amazon for
    around 350 to 400 bucks which isnt bad..
