SETS THAT GROW WITH YOU
Powerblock has all your workout goals covered with expandable sets that grow as you build strength and power. The EXP Stage 2 and EXP Stage 3 sets are a great addition to your EXP Stage 1 set, allowing you to go from 23kg per dumbbell to a huge 41kg (90lbs) effectively replacing 28 pairs of dumbbells.
The 'Auto-Lock' lever on the handle is a simple way to make micro-adjustments in 2.5 lbs. increments by removing two chrome ballast weights within the lower tubes. To remove the inner weights tilt the handle back so the weights don't spill out, then pull the lever down. Carefully remove the inner weights and put them in the storage slots on the stand. Then drop the handle back in the weight stack to close the lever, or do it manually. To add the weights back into the handle reverse the process.

SIMILAR AVAILABLE PRODUCTS
I've wanted a set of Powerblock dumbbells ever since I saw them about 25 years ago in Muscle Media magazine. Finally bought them as a present for myself. Only had them for a few weeks but these are my impressions so far:
• Build quality seems top notch, as expected for the price. I looked at other, dial based, adjustable dumbbells but they seemed to have plastic internal gears/parts? Maybe only the brands I saw. Anyway these are built solid.
• Saw some reviews about the rubber coated version (Pro Exp which I have) cracking in the corners near the rails. After playing with them on regular rubber gym flooring I can't see that being an issue, unless you load up the 45kg, clean and press, and drop from overhead maybe.
• I bought the Pro Exp version to get the rubber coating on the plates, as I read that the all metal plate version had significant plate rattle. These sill move a little, but they're quiet.
• The 1kg micro weights in the handles are an awesome idea. This lets you make smaller weight adjustments. Valuable if youve ever tried jumping from say 18kg to 23kg curls... The way they're added and removed is too hard to explain but it takes about 10-15 seconds
* One final small point - if you do heavy dumbbell bench/overhead press etc you'll appreciate the flat ends on the dumbbells, ie no bruises on the thighs from the end of the dumbell handle digging into your thigh.
Bottom line - 5/5 - I plan on getting the stage 2 upgrade, hopefully within the next 25 years

Bought these new Powerblock Pros to replace older U90's.
I have both expansion packs. The newer Pros have about 10mm of travel between the handles and weight stacks which translates into a lot of rattle and movement when moving them around during exercise.
The older ones are much tighter and dont rattle at all. Ive complained and was sent 1 sticker/packer to add to handle. Made slight improvement.
Buy some U90's off of Marketplace and buy the expansion kits for the pro's new if needed. They fit and work perfectly.
The 10mm gap is ridiculous
I believe older were made in the states and new ones china.
