Anybody used this machine? Do you like it? Do you use the angle or flat-footed?

Great machine IMO. Will definitely blast your quads to where you will crawl away afterwards. Use the angled platform IMO. The flat footed one put too much stress on my knees. The angled felt very natural. You can lean back into the movement and really kill the quads. Good for calf raises also as I'm sure you know.

I have one. Seems good so far, and the angled foot position feels better to me. I think the calf block should be a little higher though, it's easy to bottom out your heels. I also think it should have a higher resting/starting position so you don't have to squat down quite as far when you enter the machine. Personally I'd never pay $400+ for one brand new. I got mine used off eBay for less than $200.

I really like mine too. Use the angled plate for your quads, then you can kill your hams on the flat section. Just remove the calf raise bar and have at it.
