    Yep I do. I love mine. I have the U90 set. I wish now that I would have bought the ones that go up to 130.

    Re: powerblocks

    How do they hold up after 3 years of use? What is the grip diameter like? Ease of use or clumsy?

    They hold up really well. The grip is like an hour glass shape. Its fatter in the middle, it really helps. I wish I had the stand for them, just to get them off the floor.

    I dont think these are that bad if you price out all the sets you would have to buy, and the storage space is so much less.

    From the advertisement: "works as easy as 1in 2:lift". Who can argue with that kind of wisdom..
