    I'm 5'8" and wouldn't buy a bench higher than 17 1/2", you got too have your feet firmly planted and you don't want your waist too high above your knees. The PowerBlock Sports bench is a great choice...

    I would go with the Rogue, much better quality when comparing these two benches. I remember reading on here that quite a few people had quality issues with the 5200, one that comes to mind is someone...

    Not to add to your confusion, I've used Elite FTS and Iron Woody bands for many years, I've found Iron Woody to be better quality. I still have all of my original Iron Woody bands from over 10 years...

    No, the Precor bench and my adjustable bench have no play, they don't move at all.

    My guess with the Rogue Monster bench is that the front foot may be a little too narrow, perhaps that's why some...

    Good eye Urban but the Precor is 20 lbs heavier, plus the TKO is 18" high, the Precor is 15" high and it actually measures 14 1/2" high. The TKO would be useless to me, maybe not to someone else.

    For me, it was worth it. It had specs I was looking for and the quality is excellent. I was looking at the Rogue Monster Utility bench but some of the reviews said it wobbles when you sit down on the...

    Thanks, great fit and finish. Also, it's a tank but easy to move at 64 lbs., my adjustable bench is noticeably heavier at 100 lbs. Most Precor is usually 4"x2" and 11 gauge.

    Bought New Precor Flat Bench (DBR0101)

    Always loved Precor, I was always impressed with Precor/Icarian when I frequented commercial gyms in the 90's and 2000's.

    I bought their flat bench because it had the lowest height I could find,...

    I'd go with Rogue, I've always gotten good customer service from them, plus they manufacture most of their own stuff.

    I bought mine years ago (still in great shape), they're a top notch and one of the first bands around.

    Everyone has got their favorites, I really like Precor. Precor was the most dominant equipment in all the gyms I trained at, Icarian in the older gyms. It took lots of abuse, plus I like the look of...

    I was in Gym Source and I was looking at the Hoist CF-3160 Adj bench, it was really nice and built like a tank but 20" high, completely useless to me for flat benching. I'm 5'8" with short legs, the...

    Did they give you a choice, or is it black padding and gray frame only because of the sale?

    Here's the original Icarian Super bench, which was fully welded and super heavy....
