    Ended up buying that seperate later on, but I'd agree that they should offer that as the standard pad or at least an option. Who wouldn't want slightly wider for benching and more narrow for incline?
  • Well, actually I've played around with the Edge...

    Well, actually I've played around with the Edge handles and think I can make them work as-is. The adjustment tube for the handles is a bit long and I might chop off 6-8", but it's not getting in the...

    Nice looking machine, interesting mix between using leverage arms and cables. Only thing I'd really like to add for leg day is a leg extension / seated curl combo like the Hoist machine to replace my...

    I'm sure it will get the job done, just using it for additional overload on leg day, or are you attempting a Barbell-less leg day? With the Belt Squat I feel like I'm pretty set on leg day. Typically...

    Wow, guess I jumped on the bandwagon at a good time. The price has skyrocketed over the past 1-2years, just the base bench is up to $459 now, more than what I paid for the bench and TWO attachments....
  • Oh yeah, forgot about the Perfect Squat!...

    Oh yeah, forgot about the Perfect Squat! Definitely agree though, after having a few and trying out the Body-Solid previously, I wouldn't bother if I saw them pop up locally. Using the leverage arm...

    Fantastic for standing calf raises and I'd take one of those over a leg press, but I didn't like how it performed under heavy load. The machine didn't feel stable once you stated piling on the...

    100%! With the Titan I ended up putting down red tape on the platform so I knew exactly where the perfect stance was without thinking about it. Might end up doing the same with this one, I'm getting...

    Update on the new Rogue Mono's, I've had them for numerous sessions now and I really like them. They could definitely make improvements on a couple things, but they are the best option outside of...

    I'd like to see a REAL study done between the three versions (pin/cable/leverage), done by a professional group that's not being paid by SquatMax. Take the Wenning (or Edge), Rogue Rhino, and...

    My guess would be Nautilus or Continental, they both seemed to favor the chrome look in the past. But I was going to say it looked like a lying hamstring curl machine, missing one of the legs.

    Not knocking the Squat Max, I'm sure it's a fantastic machine, but before regurgitating the marketing points I'd go read th actual 'study'. It's complete BS and the majority of the findings seem...

    The EZ Dip was padded more than other dip belts, I tried the Spud once before and it was TERRIBLE for belt squats. After a few sessions the Edge belt is starting to grow on me and the machine feels...

    I'd say quality wise Rogue has Mech beat here, better finish and the UHMW is awesome. Functionality wise Mech is still the clear winner, his adjustability and slightly offset Mono's still reign...

    Still have holes to drill, but the first mono is installed! Played with fire on this purchase, knowing I could only really have 4" adjustments on the Mono's with Legend's numbers already cut into the...

    Let the drilling begin! Rogue Mono's arrived today, they look really nice and they should be easier to make quick adjustments. The swing arm with the stop bolt in doesn't appear to be an improvement...

    Secomd session today and man, my hips were sore from the full leg session the other day. EZ Dip belt here we come, it's padded nicely and rated at like 800lbs or something stupid. They have changed...

    There is definitely a learning curve with the leverage machines, I had the Titan Belt Squat adjusted to perfection so it's going to take a moment to adjust to a new machine. The foot placement,...

    Hands down the Elite Series, I've owned the Sport and they are too bukly and I was not impressed by the tiny button welds. Elite are "Made in USA" and will stand the test of time...

    So far so good, trying to get used to the belts that came with it and get the height adjustment right, think my chopped up EZ Dip belt was the way to go. But I'll give them some time to see if they...
