fabuloso said: wow, seems like a hot deal...how do these compare to Bowflex's Select Tech? Looks to be like your saving $48 bucks over Amazon...so a savings but the "coupon" makes it appear like a larger deal than it is. (excluding tax from either site).
These look more unbalanced than the select techs are. Would only know though by trying them.
In all, it's a good price. I have the 55lb version of the select techs. In all, they are pretty decent. slightly imbalanced and a little bulky, but a good trade off to having a ton of free weights littering your floor.
Nice! Been waiting for a used pair of 552's to come down to the $200 level, but I don't need the extra 7 lbs they provide. Anyone know if these are smaller than the 552s? The dimensions listed seem wrong: L: 14", W: 15", H: 7"... but it seems like they'd be an inch smaller all around than the 552s.

I got some the last time they ran this deal and I am very pleased. They are bulky and move slightly in use (this annoys some people and also results in a little noise). However, they are solid, seem well made, and take up so little room (I don't use the included rack), that I can keep them on the floor in my closet for a very convenient workout (takes away the excuse of having to go down to the full weight set in the basement).
As a side note, the package they ship in is obviously very heavy. Our UPS guy did not even bother taking it to the front porch and we found it on the ground next to the garage. It kinda surprised me because UPS drivers are usually pretty strong!
I have had the Weider 90lbs Speedset for about a month and had zero issues with them with almost daily usage. They are wider than the set here. Choosing again I would likely purchase the Bowflex set based on the overall smaller size at the same price.
