Thanks, read your post, called the guy on kijiji, met him today and bought the set for $220. He let me check both boxes before purchase, and they were authentic powerblocks sport 9.0 stage I. I guess the only downside from this, as mentioned is you probably won't get the warranty. But that was the risk I was willing to take as they do retail for 348.00 + tax on Fitness Depot.
T.Y.

Is it worth getting the Stage 2 for $140 more?

Well, Fitness Depot is selling for 118.00 + tax = $133.34 for the stage 2. So its a bit more expensive, but if you want to just pick up everything all at once, then it would save you a second trip.
Except you need to buy 2 at fitness depot to take it to 90, so its a good buy

Like another poster said, there is two stage 2 kits. One is 50-70 and the other is 70-90 and they are $118 each so for stage 2,50-90lbs would be $236 plus tax at fitness depot.

Also just noticed the sale is back on for the sport 9.0s for $178 for anyone still looking to purchase.

You guys sure those kijiji ones are real???

I was just comparing those kijiji pics vs. powerblock.com.

Kijiji colours go: blk, white, purple, green, yellow, red, blue
Powerblock.com colours go: blk, white, purple, green, yellow, blue, red

So the red and blue is swapped, and the purple & greens look a lot different. Again, it just could be the pictures.

You're right, those colors are completely wrong, wrong order and the shades are different, and there is no pink, in the 5-50 sets. Also the weight sticker is upside down.

Thanks for spotting the difference. Maybe it's an older/newer version?

You can always do more reps, contrary to popular belief as long as you do it to fatigue it doesn't matter how much weight you have.

http://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/n ... muscle-too
+1, not to mention scientific studies show that older people i.e. over 40, build muscle better from more reps and lower weights than higher weights and lower reps. I am in excellent shape and have never used more than 50 on a dumbell

All the people on here saying 50 pounds is way too little weight are making the common mistake of only focusing on weight not reps. 50 pounds is enough for almost everyone.

There's been fake Bowflex ones: http://thecounterfeitreport.com/product ... l-Set.html

and if I had to guess the seller for the PBs are the same for the Bowflex ones. Just look at the phone #s: 416 628 3320 and 416 628 3316 .

If hellomotocell drove to 7080 Warden Avenue, Markham, L3R 5Y2 then it's the same seller.

If you guys are contempt doing 50lbs with more reps then that's perfectly fine. Those who want to lift heavy is vastly limited with 50lbs. That's a warmup set for db bench press for those who lift mad heavy.
