    There seems to be some variation in the Elite SSBs also. The first one I had was ok, but it didn't balance all that well. I read all of these reviews stating you could use it sans handles and while...

    The standard recommendation is to get a bag that is at least 1/2 your body weight.

    Wait, I was supposed to be saving money by going the home gym route? Crap. I'm about $11K in right now.

    I've got their curl bar and am satisfied with it. I just think their CS sucks. The CS bar isn't terribly high in this industry either, so that says something. :P

    Thanks. Repped.

    Looks like very little spin, which is a good thing for my purposes. It looks like Elite no longer carries it (disappeared from their website) or maybe the bar is no longer being...

    No. Citric acid powder or vinegar. Wire wheel if necessary. Don't paint them. Let the end user make that decision.

    Powertec screwed me when I had a problem with their FT. They ran me around for weeks (videos, photos, do this, do that) and ultimately promised to replace it after the retailer blew me and them off,...

    Vulcan's was pretty crappy. Considering their customers service sucks ***, 5% for $1-2K is pre6tty disappointing. Heck, I get 5% on sporting goods with one of my credit cards.

    +1. I got a TON of messages from "longtime collectors" re the York deep dish telling me how they saw the same ones sell for $x the week before, etc. A few of them got really hostile when I...

    I'll second the used market recommendation. Like most things, a good bag isn't cheap and a cheap bag isn't good. Title, Ringside, Outslayer, TKO all make decent bags. I have a 150-lb Title genuine...

    That depends on how much light you want/need. LED strip lights could be mounted right on the rack, but they're more for ambient lighting than useful illumination. An LED shop light can be mounted...

    Yes. If you never drop them, set them down hard or store them in a damp location they'll probably last for years, but it's just a poor design.

    Due to various health issues and just life in general, I have had months and years of breaks following 13-14 years of consistent lifting. My baseline strength remained far greater than it was prior...

    Looks like you have the essentials. Most of the stuff beyond that are just wants, not needs.

    Thanks for the review. I had presumed it would be similar in quality to the FT1/FT2, but good to get confirmation. For the price, you really can't beat it if buying new.

    Nothing says masculine like a fat f*** with a walker that needs to shoot up so he can maintain an erection and childishly whines about some petty beef over nothing over and over and over again.

    Youngstown, OH. Parabody hack squat / leg press combo for $350. Foot plate is tiny, but that's easily remedied.

    It's essentially the same as the FT1 recommended to you in the other thread, but it adds a Smith machine. The Inspire units aren't as stout as full commercial units, but they're very smooth and a...
