    Difference between Powerblock Elite and EXP adjustable dumbbells?

    These 2 dumbbells are on sale at Dicks today and I was in the market for adjustable dumbbells. What is the difference between these 2 models? I can't seem to find any other than the aesthetic difference.

    Elite: https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p...pwrblcklt50slc

    EXP: https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p...pwrblckxpstslc

    If appearance is the only difference, it would appear the EXP is nicer.

    Elites are older and made in the USA, EXP are newer, and made in China. Other than ergonomics (wider hand spacing on the Chinese ones), that's the only difference

    I assume the newer version has better ergonomics?

    The EXPs have the open handle design whereas the Elites have the original cage design. I prefer the open design, but some prefer the cage and feel it provides added wrist support.
