Quick shipping and very easy to install on my Ultimate 2 (mine did come with directions). They work like they are supposed to. The only problem is that I found that I am not quite the stud muffin I thought I was. 🙂 Bought my machine used, and had maxed a couple of exercises, these are MUCH stiffer than well used rods (which I guess should be expected, just not to such a great extent). Have to wait and see how long it takes them to get broken in, but I am quite surprised by the difference. Overall happy with the upgrade, just have to figure out how to work them in as it is not just using the new one instead of 1 30 and 2 10s. Was benching 310, can barely move 300 when using the new rod (which is probably much closer to real world weight).
Won't fit 2000 era power pro xtl
One person found this helpful.
The 410lb rod box did not fit my power pro xtl with 310lb upgrade installed. My rod box has 3 slots, but the expansion box shipped with this order only has 2 tabs that are too wide for the slots, and won't line up in any case. Not something that can be fixed with a file.
Love the Price

This was a no brainer choice for saving money. Love Bowflex items for exercising and getting them cheaper through Amazon sweetens the deal! One drawback is that the upgrade requires a new rejuvenator to hold them properly on the weight bench itself, which Amazon does not offer. The cost of shipping this from Bowflex doubles the price of the item ... bummer. But this doesn't detract from the quality of this item..simply an FYI.

The good: These rods do in fact resist to 50 lbs, as measured by my luggage scale. This is nice as my aging rods do not have that much resistance (my original 50 lb-ers are down to 35 lb).
Use in place of 310 upgrade. Works great!
As others suggested, I took them off the included block and just put them into the empty slots on my PR3000. They are cheaper than the 310 upgrade and work great so far. Many complained about snapping the rods so I only bent them part way the first day, a little more the next and by the fourth day I just used as normal. Not sure if it helped but they have not broken and work fine. I do notice they are stronger than my original 50s and I didn't get them that long ago. Happy now that I can't bench the entire set.
Maximize Your Unit.
Very good Addition to my Bowflex unit. It provides additional Goals to achieve and fits right into my Xceed machine.

I was lucky enough to have received my PR3000 with the standard upgradeable block. The 410 upgrade box dropped right into the back slots of the PR3000 box with out any issues. Best approach with these rods is to try to gradually break them in. Don't immediately try to flex them to their max. They're obviously pretty rigid when you first get them. After about an hour I took them to full flexion and have had zero problems.
Easy Install and Great Upgrade
I purchased these in place of the 310 pound upgrade. Based on some of the other reviews, I figured I would give it a try. I removed a few screws and took it out of the supplied housing. I removed the box of rods from my Boxflex and inserted it into the two available holes. I screwed it into the socket and it works perfectly.
These arrived promptly from Amazon. I don't know if they are actually used, but they do look pretty beaten up and don't match the original ones that came with my unit. They are semi smooth and have lots of what looks like scratches on them. Could just be poor manufacturing as my old ones don't show nearly this much wear after many years. They don't specifically say Bowflex on them, but the box says Nautilus which is Boxflex's parent company. However, they do work and it is more of a pain to return them and try something else. I was just trying to make my old PowerPro work for me again as the original resistance just wasn't enough. These do accomplish that. They are a little more resistance than the original 50 power rods maybe because mine are old and broken in. It makes for plenty of resistance for me. I had to remove them from their case as it wouldn't fit my PowerPro because it is so old. I had the extra holes in mine to just add them. But, really, a product that is sold as new shouldn't come looking like these do.
