Plus dips hammer the shoulders as well.
It is funny that you should mention clavicle pain, but only with the chest press.
I got this clavicle pain when doing dips. I have found that if I shift my body around - more weight in the back, keeping my chest up, elbows pointed straight back . . and if I can remember to point my fingers forward instead of gripping the handles - then I don't get that pain in my clavicle. I know it has to do with the fulcrum and torque of the weights in relationship to the body, that determines which muscles and tendons/ligaments are needed for the movement.
For your clavicle pain, I also wouldn't rule out scar tissue hidden from an MRI within the deep tissues surrounding the delts and pectorals. Because of my experience with an old shoulder injury, I was having the hardest time doing lat pulldowns. I used all the various pulldown bars that were there, and finally settled on a short bar with a slight angle down for the overhand grip. I worked on increasing the reps and the weights for years till I am where I am today. Somehow I was able to keep pulling on the muscles and tendon/ligament (probably with a mass of scar tissue) and strengthen it up to where it is today. Then again, I had to persevere with that exercise, how else am I going to be able to get the wide lats that I desire? Can't use dumbbells for that exercise.
I do like using dumbbells for when I start dieting down. I like to use the quickness of dumbbells to superset exercises and do them fast. I can then tweak the exercise by using different angles on the bodypart and fine-tune its look as the bodyfat melts away from it. To get the peak on a bicep, or the striations on the delts all around the whole head as an example.
The only exercise that I have to use dumbbells during the bulking season is the incline chest flyes. And I don't like them. . well actually I am scared of them . . because I did hurt myself pretty badly with a microtear in my left pec with a couple of 45lbs dumbbells, and the left one couldn't come back up even though I tried with all my might (I had no spotter/partner at that time) and I may have tried to override the golgi tendon reflex. So to me, dumbbells can be dangerous too.
