Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Strong Band Resistance Bands Set - With Carry Bag (Misc.)Firstly, this resistance band has nothing like the resistance advertised, its more like 20lbs tops, my girlfriend can knock out 20 reps with this without breaking a sweat.
Secondly, the product comes in pieces (handles plus tubing) these had been removed from their original packaging and just dropped loose in a jiffy bag.I can ony asssume this was done because the packaging would have given away that thos was not a 70lbs resistance band, as there is no ay that loose items would not originally have come packaged.
Avoid at all costs, for the sake of a few pounds more you can get something much better.

Yes, the band is actually 35lb per side, but only when stretched to breaking point, for most users during most exercises the band is actually around 15lb - 20lb per side. It is a misleading way of rating the bands (at almost breaking point). As for packaging, no , it never was packaged, these bands are bought in bulk from alibaba.com and come loose in a box with no ratings on them, for around $3 each. I would recommend to you sir that if you want a really heavy band you purchase the black mamba from ElastiTone, it is the only band in the world which offers a lot of resistance for strong guys and if you attach both ends to one handle there is no way at all on this earth you will manage more than 3 or 4 bicep curls i would think, with proper form.
