Flex Wheeler’s Back Widow Attachment Review 2022: Worth the Cost?

Flex Wheeler’s Back Widow Attachment Review 2022: Worth the Cost?

Flex Wheeler's Back Widow is one of the most versatile cable machine attachments ever created. It's great as a "back blaster" for lat pulldowns and rows, but works just as well for curls and tricep work. In addition to that, it doubles as a deadlift jack and also works as a landmine. Honestly, unless you're conscious of all it does, you'll forget just how often you can use it. It is expensive and we do recommend it, but only to those that will use it's various capabilities and don't want to take up space with a ton of different attachments. Read the full review.

Product Summary

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.

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.

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.
