I'm thinking about getting a set of dumbbells for home use, and I'm curious if there is any reason I'd want to go with the solid one piece dumbells vs a set using plates. I was considering a "dial a weight" set like the bowflex ones, however in reading reviews it looks like it isn't uncommon for the plates to slip off the handle, so I don't think I'd go that route.
I like the space savings of a modular set of dumbells, however I'd consider going with the solid one-piece style if there was a good reason for it.
Really the only reason I can think of is the hex ends on the dumbells allow them to be used while doing push ups or burpees. However I don't know that this is enough reason to spend the extra money vs a more flexible modular system. Costco currently has a set of rubber coated hex dumbbells for 190, however it only has weights from 10 to 30 pounds, and I'd likely never use the 10 or 15 pound weights. I can get a set of modular dumbells with 200 pounds of plates for about the same price on amazon.
