Hey all,

Figured I should post this separately, thought someone would have posted by now but couldn't find anything. Adding the YMMV just to be safe since it's B&M. It's my first post, not entirely sure what i'm doing shake head

Sports Authority in-store coupon
http://o.rmncdn.com/thumbs/printa...JRV6LI.png

Direct link [sportsauthority.com] to coupon on Sports Authority site.

Just got back from my local Sports Authority (NYC, Northern Boulevard) -
I'd been eyeing these last week with the 15% off coupon but decided to hold off, got plain lucky today checking for online coupons while at the store.

Printable coupon for $100 off $300 (I showed it to the cashier on my phone) worked for me today. I was there to exchange some shorts i'd bought so the total was a little over 300 for me anyway. Hard part was getting the package home.

I might have left the receipt in the store, I was too busy struggling to carry the box + bag. Bring some help, it's kind of a chore by yourself. Also, a car would really help.

For price comparison: $299 on Amazon (same price at Sports Authority)

......pair
Great deal. Been waiting on a deal on these for a while. Picked a pair up today in Augusta, GA. Would like to have the larger ones, but at this price, I can probably flip them and get what I've got in 'em back if I ever need the large ones.

Unlimited is right, that was the older model, these are the "newer" ones and all problems have been resolved.
no not from amazon, almost half of those reviews are fake/paid for. These reviews are from bodybuilding.com

Thank you OP. I got the last boxed pair in Gilroy Ca. Not the Ironmasters, but these will work nicely for now. Repped! BTW Be careful if you buy the demos......lots of info about this out there....check it out.

You link me to a forum where I've been a member of for 6 years.. almost no one there likes bowflex bounce. All but 2 of the links you provided are from before the new models came out, the 2 you posted from 2010 and from 2011:

2010 post, guy had them for a while which to me means he had the old ones or didn't take care of them and he said they were starting to stick. No mention of them falling apart.

2011 post, guy went to the store and he had issues re-racking them. Can you imagine how many people were fiddling with the display product that guy was looking at? Tons I imagine. Anything store model is over abused and will have wear and tear.

In any case, the price was great and I'm sorry you felt they are unsafe but they won't fall apart unless you constantly drop them from a few feet off the ground sure, it will take a toll on them obviously. Go with Powerblocks or Ironmasters, that's what the bodybuilding.com guys like.Stick Out Tongue

well then, what are the improvements for these toys? Were they from 2009, 2010,2011,2012 or 2013
Metal tabs, in place of plastics?

Waited the last day of he coupon but finally budged and picked up a pair today in a va beach store.

They also had the weider speedweight 100 also on sale. It came with a stand already. Was listed under clearance for 249...and was on my way to get them(along with 50 dollars worth of other stuff)but they told me i couldnt use my coupon for clearance items so i ditched it.
They had great ratings as well:http://www.amazon.com/Weider-Spee...+dumbbells

What demos? Are those the ones come with the strap that holds these down onto the plastic holder? I picked up the box today expecting them to be in two boxes per dumbells but it was just one whole box. Hopefully I got the newer version of the 552.

The Universal Powerpak 445 is the same price, but comes with a stand.. unless you want to give yourself a hernia or a ruptured disk in your back, I highly suggest you get the stand. I bought the Universal Powerpak last year and use them almost everyday, and they deliver it right to your door for free off of Amazon.
That's true, i got one at the start of this year, the first one fedex damaged. The second one was good. Very nice set and plus you get a stand. However, some people need more weight. If i had to chose again i would go with the Powerpak. Also, Bowflex sold the Powerpak with Bowflex name on it at one point.

Hosaka,
Boxed is gtg. I was referring to the issues with demo models....not the differing models. I tried buying the display set in Monterey....they had issues with the selector on one side of one dumbbell. I drove to Gilroy to get a new boxed set.
I am very happy with the set and the price. Looking for a foldable bench now:
perhaps:

YMMV: For those wanting the Bowflex stand, went to printout wal-mart online showing $111.91
http://www.walmart.com/ip/2189687...90&veh=sem
Brought it to SA. SA priced match and they let me add a 20% off coupon (found through e-bay or through grocery store/walgreens receipt...AND a $10 Off item over $50 (you get one for siging up online at sportsauthority)
$111.19
-$22.24
-$10.00
$78.95 sub total.
Good Luck!

You can get these cheap on your local CL typically. I had a pair but was a waste because I can do more than 50 on every exercise even curls. There's a guy on eBay who sells 1090s for cheap even after shipping. I ended up paying under $400 shipped for the pair, new.

I picked this up on the last day, Saturday 7/13/13, from the La Mesa location. It worked like a charm with a 15 cent piece of bubble gum! Thanks a bunch.

My local SA would pricematch the bench, but then not allow the coupon unless Walmart also had a coupon. So -- I said, then I can just get it at Walmart for the same price.....didn't help. Typical in my area.

Not sure about the brand, but I used a set that looked like this at some hotel fitness center a few years back. Didn't like them. Too much flex in the weight plates made them too unstable in my hands.
