    I'm looking for the overall height of the unit to see whether it would fit in a room with low ceilings. The maximum height of the handles wouldn't be bad to know either, for others viewing the thread.

    Very nice. I had considered going that route but ultimately opted for the FT1 with upgraded stacks. Which was supposed to arrive mid October but still has not . . .

    How high is the thing? I had...

    I got rid of the bench back in 2012--the pad had completely disintegrated, and I was ready to move on to something better, anyway. I got a few attachments (some of which New York Barbells doesn't...

    The power combo bench is essentially a variation of the TDS Mega Bench that's been around for decades. I bought the TDS version in the nineties, and while it was okay, you still need safeties, and...

    Urethane bumpers are giant disks of urethane, while the Ivankos are urethane-coated cast-iron. Bumpers have no cast iron in them.

    I had around 90 lbs of these that came with a set I bought in '89 or '90. I sold them 5-7 years ago for $0.30-0.40/lb. Given the recent price increase for plates, $0.50/lb isn't bad if you're looking...

    Nice setup.


    That assumes you can find something in stock.

    Dynamic Fitness makes good racks as well, and the half rack I got from them a couple years ago was one of the best-packaged pieces of equipment I've ever received. The downside is all their racks are...

    Looks like they're considering creating York Roundheads replicas as well. Hopefully with actual knurling and a better handle overall than the original.

    I'm a little surprised they published a...

    My college had one of these as the main attraction in the "machines" room in the early 90's. What a piece of junk. The handles for the bench press were so close to the stack you had to worry about...

    Those are the Gladiator spotter arms--you can tell the tubing is 2x3. All the Gladiator attachments were imported, while everything else (a couple years ago, anyway) were made in the US. If you bring...

    There have been recent reports that some of Legend's quality and QC has taken a hit. Whether this is related to the pandemic is unclear. As you mentioned, they do have smaller footprint, unless you...

    Were you given the option of getting the additional stacks when you placed the order? I placed a similar order 2 weeks ago and the stacks should ship with the FT.

    I've been considering getting an...

    They said the handle is there to make it easier to move around and store. The version pictured weighs 135 pounds, although they have a lighter version that uses thinner tubing.

    I'm not sure I...

    Interesting idea, particularly if you want to do chest-supported rows, but $700 for the leg curl attachment and $300 for the chest pad?
