Rated 1 out of 5 by MAXWELL Not the best for your $$$
I purchased these a while ago with an assortment of cables ranging from orange 50# all the way up to black 100#. I brought them back and exchanged them for the gofit pro gym extreme...So much easier to change the resistance from set to set. The cables with the pro gym extreme do not go up to 100# but you can buy two or three sets of these and gang them together for more resistance than anyone can handle..Besides the orange 25# cable on the extreme feels closer to 100# than the black sklz cable does.

I use these with, at the moment, the 50lb resistance band. I had absolutely no problem getting the band in or out. The bands are an excellent substitute for traditional dumbbells, especially for use with P90X. I especially think the price is rather good if you compare to other products out there, most bands, unless you really want to pay a lot for Bodylastics, done come with a heavy enough resistance. My only complaint about the handles is that I wish they weren't entirely plastic, some sort of padding would've been nice for the hands, but all in all they work well and I feel like I can finally get a full workout in, and not be restrained by expensive hex dumbbells.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike useful but not fast
I cannot get the 100lb cord on these handles with all of my might. Also switching the cords and adjusting the door adapter is time consuming and difficult. So you will probably want to use the same resistance cord for different exercises. That makes it impractical to use the pilates cords as a substitute for a weight lifting workout, it would just take too long to switch the cords. As an alternative, you can try using the cords without the handles. If I were the manufacturer, I would create new handles with a bar that opens up to put cords in, and snaps locked shut when they are ready to use them. This would make it easy to swap cords, and keep it strong enough to hold them while in use.
