Mine are annoying, one has good deep knurling and the other is smooth and slippery -_-).

Other than that, they're equal to powerblocks (in terms of value).

Nice deal on IMs. Used ones go for just as much in Chicagoland.

If you bought from them direct, then you should contact them about it. Their, customer service is usually pretty good, they'd probably replace the problem handle for free. Even you bought it elsewhere, contact them and see what happens.

I love my Powerblocks, nothing beats the simplicity of their quick change mechanism. But IMs have their own pure-metal old-school charm, and can tolerate a lot more abuse than the PBs. I'd love to own a IM set too.... someday.

I agree. I have a pair of the Powerblocks that are about 10 years old. They are incredible, but there are some things that the Ironmaster db's do a little better, just as there are things the Powerblocks do better. I might pull the trigger on these.

Well these are smaller in length compared to bowflex so I think it's safe to say these are miles ahead of bowflex.

takes 2 seconds to change from 3lb to __lb. Where as the Ironmasters it would take a lot longer.

Bowflex is the long one. Because of the way they are designed, a Bowflex dumbbell is always the same length no matter the weight. For example, the SelectTech 552 is always 16" long whether you are using 5 lbs or 50 lbs. Also, IMO the Bowflex is not as robust as the Powerblocks or IronMasters.

These IMs are definitely a better buy, but changing the weight is not as simple & quick as with the Bowflex or Powerblock. And as you get into heavier weights,you will find yourself spending quite some time changing weights between exercises.

My recommendation would be to get the Powerblock U-70 or U-90 sets, depending how much max weight you aim to lift.

If you don't care for the Urethane coating & life-time warranty, then you can also look at the Sport EXP series

Ah, so these might be overkill for me. They just looked so nice...so much nicer than the Bowflex. Say husband ever decided to start using them, it looks like they can be built upon, and he would also find value in the ones you guys suggested?

Edit: Also, why do I care about Urethane? Longevity?

Lol well not mine, those only go to 24lb each. But they do make versions that go beyond 50lb if that's your thing.

Urethane or not, they're going to last no matter what. It's been proven these (powerblock/IM) can last for decades and still work exactly the same as you first got it.

For me I hate the urethane powerblocks, adds bulk that is not needed

For sure, these are the type of thing that you only buy once.

The Urethane coating is smooth rubber-like. Makes it a bit smoother to move the dumbbell handle in and out of the weight stack, minimizes the plate-on-plate noise during workouts and is nicer to look & touch. The U-series comes with a life-time warranty.

On the other hand, the U-coating increases the plate thickness a bit and so the overall length of the dumbbell increases slightly. For example, a 70-lb dumbbell in the U-series is 15.25-in long, while the same in the Sport series is 14-in long.

I don't think the U-coating itself makes a difference in terms of longevity. But the construction of the U-series is different from the Sport or Classic series. The metal plates in the Sports series are welded to the side rods, so the whole plate unit is more rigid and can get bent or damaged if dropped or abused. In the U-Series, the plates are screwed to the side rods, which gives them a bit of flex and makes them a bit more tolerant to drops & abuse. So, yeah, IMO the U-series can last longer which is why they come with the Lifetime Warranty.

That said, I've been using my Sport dumbbells for about 3 years now, and they look just like the day they came out of the box. I am certain they will last my lifetime if I use & care for them properly.

It says it goes from 5 to 75 lbs in 2.5 lb increments. Does that mean there is like 50 to 52.5 to 55 to 57.5 etc...? At the gyms I go to, when dumbbells go up by 2.5 lb increments, it only does this for like, up to 50 lbs, and then it goes 55, 60, 65, 70, 75 -- like that.
