    They look great! Will be interested to see how they compare to your Edge Fitness Mono's, especially the clearance on the swing arm.

    For sure! I just passed on spending $750 for Legend 3103, which is now sounding pretty reasonable LOL.

    Nah, he's just taking a short break before getting back to making the best Mono's ever built. This time, roller j-hooks and side handles so they are easier for us weak Americans to adjust.

    Hang on now, are we talking $984 + $450 shipping + an additional $110 for this bench?

    That's exactly how I feel about it, it's really not that bad but if you are used to benches like the Legend 3-Way like Grumpy obviously there is no going back. That's part of the reason why I added...

    Maybe in a few years they'll make the hybrid pad standard so you get the best of both worlds a little cheaper. Although it took them a LONG while to listen to market with lowering it to 17", making...

    Agree, it was well priced back when it was mid-$300's and I had no issue with recommending it as the best bench for the money. It's still fantastic and performs well, but at the current price there...

    Couple options here. They have the upright pad attachment for military press, but for an additional $139 it's a HARD pass IMO. You could elevate the bench to raise your seat, or you could just do...

    Makes sense, then maybe just an easy revision to the screws that were used. Those little things kept popping out on me, think I sucked up 1-2 with the vacuum and didn't notice. But those strips would...

    Even Captain America had trouble lifting Thor's hammer the first time, that Mech steel feels different!

    But after using them for a good while I'd say the Rogue AM-2's are about as good as it gets....

    The only thing that worries me about Griffin is they appear to be a REP/Rogue knockoff company. Their mono design was done by ATX previously, so I'm not sure how well they were able to copy the specs...

    Yeah, it's slowly made its way on my "Biggest Regret" list of items I've bought/sold over the years. The Legend half rack has grown on me though and it looks great, but the Pendlay half rack was an...

    The Griffin look interesting, Titan Series work fine outside of the low quality UHMW, then Mutant Metals has a really interesting design with the rollers. Rogue's are excellent though, drilling side...

    The bench and roller j-cups look nice, the monolift attachments are incredibly overpriced for a glorified hockey stick design. Makes me think of REP Fitness, they put all that money into attention to...

    The new Rogue AM-2 are really nice in this regard, more compact & light weight. The side hole adjustment rocks, with the inside lined with UHMW I just slide them up and down the rack. They are...

    A) Correct, anything a J-hook can do a monolift attachment can do better (IMO). My regular J-hooks have collected dust since the Mono's came.

    B) See answer above, you might keep them as a backup,...

    Monolift attachments are 100% worth the hype. Once you learn to bench and squat with Mono's there is no going back, wish mine had rollers for easy bar adjustment but I've done fine without.
