    Hellol,

    Any thoughts / experience re: adjustable dumbbells? I need to upgrade, which either means spending a shi*load of $ and space on a rack + full set or going the adjustable route.

    - I know that the Bowflex units can't be dropped, but I never drop my weights. I work to failure and then set my weights down.

    - I know that the Ironmasters have their fans. Kudos.

    - To me, the Powerblocks look cumbersome, but I haven't tried them. Interesting design. Probably need to find some to play with.

    - I know about Craigslist and Ebay. Good tip.

    Any thoughts or experience?

    I am very cramped for space at the moment, so I got a pair of simple 10-50's from eBay, adjustable in 10-lb. increments. Nothing fancy. Been about a year, so far, no problems. Comes with a support stand. Carefully spray a little 3M dry silicon lubricant on the mechanisms once a month and they work like champs.
