    Feedback from PowerBlocks Users?

    I'm going to buy a set of PowerBlocks, but I can't tell if there's any reason to choose either the Elite or the Sport Exp over the other. Both go up to 50 pounds and are expandable to 90, and both cost about the same (within $20), The Elite is an old design, tried and true (apparently). The Sport looks similar but seems to have a couple of nice new features (more wrist clearance, self-locking pin). Have any of you used either model, and if so, what are your thoughts?

    Check bodybuilding.com forums. They have a home gym section with a lot of reviews. There are some "interesting" people there and a lot of kids trying to act tough but the gear reviews I found are pretty solid. They are usually from an older crowd and not the how do I get a girl and/or get massive pecs by just taking supplements group haha

    I've used the older ones many times. The only issue I've had with them is with wrist clearance. So, if the new ones solve that, they might be worth trying.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?
