    They came out better than good. Do you mind sharing the type of paint you used, for future refurbishers?

    I owned the GPR378 for 2 years. It's a simple, bare bones rack that is very strong. Some people have problems with its rear cross member--if you rack the bar in the back when doing squats, it can get...

    The tri-grip plates are olympic and the rusty plates appear to be standard, so yes, there's a pretty big difference. What type of bar are you going to be using them for?

    That particular unit was very stable and strong--I used to rack a trap bar on it and load it up to 450 lbs to do shrugs and never worried about it not being strong enough. But 11" does not give you...

    If the half rack you're looking at is this one (minus the weight stack), the spotter arms are too short. I had this model for around a decade and finally got rid of it due to safety reasons. The...

    I should mention that while I agree the Cap is a better bar, spring collars won't work on it either. I had the reverse experience of the OP when I received my Cap: the sleeves were too small and the...
