    The full rack looks much better in my opinion. I imagine it's much sturdier. It's also much safer. That's the only commercial Powertec powerrack that I've seen.

    I haven't even seen one over here...

    I think that it looks like a fantastic gym room with lots of natural light and space. I would kill for that much space (I have a 9 x 15 feet garage) with no natural light.

    Fantastic review, it looks a great bit of kit. It's a shame that body solid doesn't include a dip attachment with their gpr378 rack.
