Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Reviews

Bowflex SelectTech 1090

Quality, Efficiency, Practicality

I bought the 552 dumbbells when they first came out and I never regretted it. When I saw the 1090s, I immediately sold the 552s near retail and purchased the 1090s. 

I had never considered myself to be strong with dumbbells. I worked out with decent weight using barbells, but I probably never did more than 60 lb dumbbells on incline dumbbell press before I bought the 1090s. 

Within six weeks I was doing eight reps with 90s. I went into a gym and my barbell bench had jumped up to 275 lbs!

I love working out at home, and I love my dumbbells. The only thing I don't like is the grip. There are sections of smooth and rough. I wish they were rough all the way around so I could grip them better, but other than that they are perfect.

BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bowflex SelectTech 1090 - Absolute Perfection for Serious Lifting

Once again, Nautilus has made a true winner with the SelectTech line of dumbells. They cater to different types of lifters from the 220 all the way to the 1090 product lines.So far I absolutely love the Bowflex SelectTech 1090 dumbells and wouldn't trade them for anything else.

While they offer a bit to be desired in the low-end, they definitely shine when it comes to heavy lifting, which they are designed for, allowing weight lifters to have a resistance level of a tremendous 90lbs! From 5lbs to 90lbs, the Bowflex SelectTech 1090 dumbbells offer unsurpassed flexibility that will provide effective exercises for many years to come. 

While the initial price tag may look expensive, it is not when you really look at it. While I would still look at other options, such as the PowerBlock Blocks, I would not hesitate to purchase the Bowflex SelectTech 1090 dumbbells.

Not only are they worth every penny, but when you look at the long-term results you may have, you can just about call them a steal.

Bowflex SelectTech 1090 Customer Review

First off, this is a great product, but I will not spend the time reviewing the great things about this product because I feel there are many other reviews that have already done that. Here are some things I found I thought should be helpful to others:

1) In the "most helpful critical review" it is listed that the rectangular chrome handles are a pain to deal with. This almost compelled me not to buy this product. However, after trying out the DBs, I did not find it much of a bother. The "rectangular" handles are pretty much round with a hint of "rectangulariness" if you will. Not much of a bother to me, but some thick tape cloth should remedy the problem if you have sensitive hands.

2) To those that do not want to buy the $150 stand, I found that instead of picking the DBs off the floor, you can simply make use of the shipping boxes as a custom made stand. Just turn over the Styrofoam and cut off the top lid of the box and place the DB within the box and you are set. The DBs are still a little low, but it is better than picking them off the floor.

3) If you ever have the problem of a DB not fitting within the base evenly, the dials are stuck, and one of the plates does not attach to the DB, do not send in the DB to the manufacturer just yet (I had this occur to me today). After some experimenting, I finally figured out that all I had to do was remove the DB from the base and remove the plates from the base until the base was completely emptied. Then, with the emptied base, place the DB back within the base (without remaining plates on the floor). You should be able to switch the dials back to 10 lbs with plates from the DB coming off. Then simply place back all the plates within the base and place the DB back within the base with the plates ready to go. The DB should pick the plates right back up. This experiment saved me a lot of money because I forgot to send in the warranty mail within 30 days (it's on the back of the paperback instructions). Hope you found at least one of these points helpful!
