    I know Bowflex has a bad reputation.

    These are new products to me (don't know when they appeared and see no way of finding out)

    https://www.bowflex.com/selecttech/
    https://www.bowflex.com/selecttech/2...ll/100874.html
    https://www.bowflex.com/selecttech/560/100581.html

    120 lb barbell
    Shorter dumbbells
    40 lb Kettlebell

    I'm in a situation where I can appreciate the benefits of a small weighted instrument and noticed their kettlebell has a surprisingly good visual and functional design, assuming it doesn't fall apart.

    The barbell with curlbar also has a good visual design. You have to appreciate how it compares with other products in the category like Powerblocks barbell.

    Fellow equipment sluts and enthusiasts alike, it's a sad day for those who appreciate quality equipment. Today GarageGym recommended BLowflex DB's as a good value buy with confidence, at least for those people who don't lift heavy weights or are concerned about them breaking in the future (not verbatim, but pretty close). Even worse, he tried to associate the 'engineering' of these db's with the likes of old school Nautilus. I can only assume Arthur Jones rolled over in his grave with disgust. Coop must be running out of content....

    I know two people with Bowflex DBs. One had a plate fall out during shoulder presses and hit him in the head. The other had to 3D print a new plastic part, because the original didn't last. But hey, Mr Everything's Great said they're fine after a 10 minute test. Seems legit.

    In fairness, he did point out dangers, drawbacks, and flaws but he drew the wrong conclusion that they are a good deal and a good fit for some use cases regardless.

    Haha, sorry. But I really feel like he is just running out content with this one, or Bowflex cut him a check directly for this review. There are knockoffs now of Bowflex on Amazon, $200 shipped for a set isn't bad but I still wouldn't touch it with a 10' pole.

    I've had my set of dumbbells for about 7 years from them. Still not issues (though I admit I haven't used them as much as most would in 7 years). But regardless I've never had an issue other than them being too wide/bulky sometimes.
