Back Widow

The patent-pending Back Widow, by Flex Wheeler, is the gym version of a Swiss Army Knife, potentially replacing more than a dozen separate handle attachments and accessories with a single, all-in-one alternative. Users can quickly adjust the Back Widow into more than 15 different grip positions without having to remove the attachment, making it uniquely equipped for high traffic gyms or more time-efficient individual workouts.

As the name suggests, the Back Widow is designed, first and foremost, as a back blaster, with easy set-ups for high/mid/low range cable pulls and T-bar rows. The same device works equally well as a cable attachment for biceps and triceps work; as a pull-up bar attachment for neutral grip pull-ups; or as a dumbbell attachment for dumbbell rows. Many users even adopt the Back Widow as their primary bar-jack: the moving parts are all at a 16,000 LB sheer test, so no weight load threatens the Widow's overall structural integrity.

KEY FEATURES OF THE BACK WIDOW REPLACEMENT BAR

Loading
1

Versatility

One adjustable and collapsible Back Widow can do the job of a dozen clunky cable handles, saving your gym on both costs and storage space. Weighing just under 10 LBS and offering more than 15 grip positions, this unique back blasting attachment can be used for high lat pulls, seated rows, T-bar rows, neutral grip pull-ups, bicep and tricep cable work, and much more. The moving parts of the Back Widow are all at a 16,000 LB sheer test, so stability and durability are never a concern, regardless of the weight load.

Quick Adjustments

Versatility goes a lot further when it comes with convenience and efficiency. The Back Widow’s adjustments can be made without having to remove the attachment; a major innovation that allows multiple athletes to quickly customize their workout without throwing a training partner off their game. In a smaller home gym, it also allows individual athletes to add more variety to a training regimen without wasting time looking for a different attachment or having to take down and set-up a new handle.

Excellent Utility with Two Flaws
Pros: 1) High-quality construction (solid) 2) Tremendous versatility (lot of adjustments and saves space) Cons: 1) Built so heavy that it's difficult and, at times, quite awkward to adjust. (Maybe it's just stiffer when it's new.) 2) The piece is so large (even in its smallest/most narrow configuration (see attached photos) that it makes it VERY difficult if not impossible to achieve a full range of motion in a lat pulldown or low row if your arms are average to long. In other words, add another 13-14" from the very end of the carabiner to your hands and it essentially forces you to lean back significantly when performing lat pulldowns thus inhibiting a full stretch at the end range of motion. Overall, this piece is expensive but provides value considering you won't have to buy 3-5 additional attachments. However, there may be some growing pains with some users. I'll also likely need to purchase an alternative narrow grip v-handle for close-grip lat work because this piece is just too long. I'll continue to use it for other functions (wide-grip lat work, landmine, single-arm rows, triceps, curls, and deadlift jack).

13.5" long even at its narrowest

An Absolute Masterpiece
This thing weights about 10lbs and as soon as you get your hands on it, you realize why the price is what it is. This is highly recommended for individuals who have attended the gym for quite some time and realize what the Back Widow's full capability is (deadlift jack, bent over barbell rows, bent-over dumbbell rows, seated rows, latt-pulls, etc.). This attachment covers all major back workouts that users typically perform at a gym. It feels very comfortable on the hand and even has a soft knurling touch to it. I can guarantee you will use this every single time you work out your back! To top it off, it can even be used as a Triceps pushdown attachment and a bicep curl attachment when using cables. I spent the money, and I would do so again in a heartbeat.

The versatility is awesome
I had a client break the arm and back widow sent me a new one. Keep your old one to send back. It makes getting a new one easier

Good, but not worth the price
The different grip widths on this thing don’t vary much, the widest it goes is around 29 inches which is the same as a standard curl bar attachment. I’d say if your starting a home gym and have nothing then maybe consider this one, but if you already have an assortment of attachments already don’t bother”

Love it but have a couple of suggestions...
I love this highly versatile attachment but there are a couple of improvements I'd make: 1. When using as a bar-jack, the iron isn't protected within the groove so it ruins the knurling and/or paint on your bar so it would be great to have a little padding there because that's the only purpose for the groove. 2. It's not very comfortable to use it for bicep/tricep work because that middle grip on the handle is only 3" (the others are 5") that fits only a few fingers so it would be great to have that middle grip a bit wider. Thanks!

Great purchase!
This piece of equipment is awesome! Much more heavy duty than I expected. Easy to adjust. Great angles. Works well on cables, but really nice with my landmine. We are enjoying our workouts with the Back Widow! Thanks Flex! And Thank you Rogue
