I know its a bowflex product, but they they look like a good idea. Theyre 350 bucks. The weight can be adjusted from 5 to 52.5 lbs From 5 to 25 lbs in 2.5 lb increments, and from 25 to 52.5 lbs in 5lb increments. What do you guys think ? Would you buy it ? their website http://www.bowflexselecttech.com/default.asp.

There are better choices in adjustable dumbbells. I know you're only 15 and may not have been working out very long, but at some point you'll find that 52.5 lbs is much too light for several exercises. Look at the Ironmaster & Powerblock dumbbells... there are quite a few threads in this section about them.

Nice looking but aren't as durable as some others and only go to 52.5 lb.:

Fifty pound dumbell row is totally pointless. You'll own it in a year or so. (I can curl it) Find some old iron dumbells!
