(More customer reviews)This is the first review I've ever been compelled to write about a product, so that should give you some idea of how unhappy we are with our purchase. We own 8 sets of CAP Rubber Coated Hex Dumbells (model SDR) ranging from 8 lbs. to 35 lbs. We purchased them because of the textured grip and shape which are great. As you might expect, this was a costly purchase. Shortly after bringing them home, we discovered the rubber compound used at the ends of the dumbells has a strong odor. We contacted the store where we had purchased the equipment and we were told the odor would dissipate. When the odor persisted and we called back three months later, the store was out of business. We contacted CAP, the manufacturer, to seek advice. Our first call was not returned. I reached a person on my second call who said she would speak with her boss about what they could do. Again, no response. On the third call, I was instructed to wash the dumbells and leave them outside to air out for a few days and that others who had similar complaints generally did not call back after doing this (so this is a problem they are aware of). We carried all eight sets up to the garage and washed and air dried as advised. Within a day of putting them back in the garage to see if the odor was gone, the garage smelled of rubber! When we called back for the last time, we were advised that the company does not deal directly with consumers. We explained that the store we purchased their product from was no longer in business, but that another store affiliated with the company who bought out the chain that sold us the equipment originally was willing to assist us in any way possible (as they had also had similar complaints). We offered to pay the incremental cost for chrome dumbells that CAP sells if we could exchange the existing dumbells we currently own (which the store was willing to facilitate). They would not do this and claim that the odor is not a defect in the product and therefore not covered under the warranty. We are now going to put an ad out to sell these (with full disclosure on the odor). I strongly caution anyone against purchasing this product, particularly if this product is going in a room that does not open to the outdoors. More broadly, I would be wary of doing business with CAP as they do not stand by their product.

(More customer reviews)My 9 year old received one ot these for Christmas (Thanks, Santa!).
I helped Santa assemble it on Christmas eve. It's a good thing he was helping because the unicycle didn't come with assembly instructions. It wasn't terribly hard to figure out, but it would have been nice.
When assembling, ensure that the left pedal is on the left side and the right... well you get the picture. If you don't do this, the pedals may unscrew themselves and you'll spend time finding bandaids.
The seat post was a bit long for my daughters legs even with the post all of the way inside the frame. I removed an inch and a half of post with my Sawzall (thanks, Santa!) and now it fits fine. A hacksaw will also work just fine.
There's a nice video available here on Amazon explaining how to ride, but there are quite a few on-line resources too.
Overall, I'm very happy with this unicycle.

It looked well done.When I opened the package I realized that it was constructed of plastic not metal, Which is not what I expected......I know it's buyer beware when you purchase somthing without a complete description of the product. If it's not welcomed when opened this holiday I will gladly return it with complete understanding.

(More customer reviews)Only 2 stars for this watch. While i do not own this particular brand, i do own a Planet Ocean 2200.50.00 which has the DOUBLE ANTI GLARE ( anti glare on inside and outside of crystal ). The watch looks great, no complaints about that.
Take note before you buy any of these watches from Omega that have the Double anti glare. THEY SCRATCH EASILY !! Mine scratched after 2 months and Omega will not warranty it. In fact, if you go to their website, they don't even have a customer service number and it states this:
"Due to the considerable interest shown in the OMEGA brand, our staff is answering an unprecedented number of inquiries. Therefore, you should expect a response time of at least four weeks. We thank you for your patience and understanding." ONLY THROUGH EMAIL
I feel that after spending $4000 on a watch, that they should replace it or at least re-imburse the cost. They do not and will not, so you are stuck with a scratched watch.
Save your bucks and get a ROLEX or Tag. Customer service on these Omega's are NILL !

(More customer reviews)I am a very healthy and reasonably fit 50-year woman. I play tennis and swim 50-100 lengths daily. I bought the weights to gradually improve my upper arm strength. They are fantastically versatile, the only comment I would have is that I think the weights should start from 5lbs, not 10lbs.
Two of my friends used the weights and found the lowest weights too heavy to start training. My sons use them and can do much heavier weights.
We all gave them a score of 5 out of 5.

(More customer reviews)Before you buy, be aware this is NOT a spinning pole. It is a stationary pole. I did not know this when I purchased it (it's not really mentioned here), so it was rather expensive to swap out for the pole I actually wanted (due to shipping).
In good news, X-pole makes good poles. The design is sturdy, does not take a large amount of space, and is fairly easy to put together. You might need a little help lifting it up in the end, just to be safe, but otherwise, any lady could assemble this easily. It took me about half an hour.
In bad news, this surface is Extremely Slippery. Even with "Mighty Grip" or "Dry Hands", you tend to slide off after a short amount of climbing/doing tricks.
Stationary vs Spinning:
If you are an awesome gymnast, capable of untold feats on the pole, or if you don't mind looking completely stupid, stationary is fine. What do I mean? Well, with a spinning pole, even simple things most people can do look pretty neat, just because you are spinning at the same time. It's a pleasant distraction that tricks your audience (even if the audience is just you or some girlfriends) into thinking "wow, that looks neat". On the other hand, when the pole does not spin, everything looks a little less glamorous and interesting, so unless you can bust out some crazy moves and have the flexibility of saltwater taffy, you just won't look good. Trust me. We had a party, and none of my friends felt great about how things went, and half of us are either dancers or gymnasts. Moral of the story: if you are going to spend money on a good pole, like an X-Pole, go ahead and get a spinning one; otherwise, just get one of those crappy cheap ones.
I recommend the Xpert 50 mm Titanium Gold. It spins and has a slightly less slippery surface, and the thicker pole (as opposed to 45mm) makes it easier to grip with your legs, so you can do more climbs and hang on with your body. It's $100 more, but well worth it,

(More customer reviews)I recently acquired a Total Trainer DLX-2 and am very pleased with it. I have lifted free weights since middle school and had only once seen a system like this (a Total Gym in Sears) which I briefly experimented with. I quickly realized that I could get a good workout from such a system.
In my routine I typically hit my quads, hamstrings, calves, biceps, triceps, shoulders, forearms, chest, middle/lower/upper back and abs. There are multiple exercises to choose from for working each muscle group. Changing levels is easy to do. Moving the pulleys from one spot to another is easy as is attaching the pulley with the ankle strap on it. In fact, there is nothing even remotely complicated about it.
Setup is a snap. It's odd at first but after a couple of times opening and folding it back up are simple. I was skeptical that when folded it would take up so little space but it does. My wife is completely happy with how it disappears when I'm through with it.
In summary, I love my Total Trainer!!!
