    I didn't order anything this year, but the stuff I ordered MBF 2018 took several weeks to arrive. When I inquired about it, they said they often get backed up due to the huge jump in sales during...

    For bang-for-the-buck, I would recommend Fringe right now. Some of their plates are nearly 50% off.

    I don't have any complaints about balance w/ the Powerblocks, but they can get a bit unwieldy compared to a fixed hex DB.

    I had Ironmasters as well in the past and while I really liked how similar...

    I supposed you could, but I've never tried it. As above though, you can still do one-handed versions.

    I'm probably going to still say Vulcan, though after recently getting one I will say there's no doubt this is a Chinese-made bar. It's a nice enough bar, but FWIW there's virtually no spin and the...

    The Pro EXPs have an ergo-type handle. Last I checked the Elites had a straight handle. In terms of overall size of the blocks, the urethane-coated are a little bigger due to the urethane coating....

    The Elites have the standard cage-style handle (bar on each side of the handle near your wrist) and bare metal plates. The EXPs have a sport handle (no side handles near your wrists) and bare metal...

    There are a few reviews complaining about the Core Fitness DBs getting stuck in the cradle at 35-50+ lbs. Aside from that, I tend to stay away from generics. They tend to be poorly made and if they...

    If you don't want to give up the leg curl/extension and only one of the benches has that option, it seems you already answered your own question.

    Cybex's # 16185 (dip/chin/leg raise) weighs 212 lbs. The Leisurelife weighs 55.5 lbs. That would tell me all I need to know. Maybe if you bolt it down you it wouldn't be that bad. Maybe.

    The EXPs have the open handle design whereas the Elites have the original cage design. I prefer the open design, but some prefer the cage and feel it provides added wrist support.

    Yeah, I did find them on TSC's website after I made that initial post. I opted to hold off on buying though as the monos are very snug. I was surprised considering how sloppy the fit is on my Rogue...

    Nice! I don't know the retail price of that particular piece, but $1,200 seems like a steal for pretty much any Rogers Pendulum piece.

    Even if they were both made in the same Chinese factory (and I don't believe they are based on side-by-side comparisons of the quality of the work), QC guidelines could still vary based on the...
