Anyone use Jackie Chan's 'Cable Flex'?

Do you like it? Does it give a good workout?

Thanks

I have it and I think it is a great concept but the tension is not tight enough for me and there is no way you can really increase the resistance. Plus you can do the same exercises with bands and get a better workout.

I kinda figured that. I have it, but never did it. I got it dirt cheap.

I had it. It's a piece of crap, IMO.

It$20 and then I had a $10 coupon. It wasn't awful for a $10 purchase. Nevertheless, it's in my closet.

I had it and used it for a while, but it didn't seem to provide enough resistance. I sold it on my garage sale.

I bought it when it first came out and used it once. It offers no resistance whatsoever and was a big waste of money seeing I paid the infomercial price for it.

I'm surprised Jackie Chan would promote something that was useless. I know it's all about the $$, but what about reputation?

I liked mine, but didnt use it much. I dont work out at home like I used to. I have been working out at lunchtime at my local gym. I donated the machine to goodwill and took the tax rightoff. I still have 3 workout tapes that are almost brand new. Anyone wants to make a trade, contact me.
