    24 inches high?, most benches come in at under 20", I had Body Solid adjustable bench 21" high, I'm about 5'9" and it was too tall for my liking.

    My current benches are 18" and 18 1;2". and are the perfect height for me.

    Yes the bench is 24" high in flat position. This allows for the usage of the leg developer and preacher curl attachment.
    is it worthy over reguler height bench?

    You need to google - adjustable bench/leg extension and look at every single bench with a leg ext/curl attachment and look at the feet of the person in the picture or video. You will see they use what appears to be a fairly tall model in each advertisement and their feet barely lay flat on the ground if at all and all of these benches are over 19". Any bench with an attachment like that needs to be designed higher to accommodates the mechanics of the leg attachment and piate holder. The only one I know of that has overcome this issue is Ironmaster with their new release Super Bench Pro. Look it up. It has to be the Pro model the original version had the same problem. You'll probably regret getting a bench over 19" high. Several guys here just recently bought the Pro Ironmaster did a good job at lowering the bench while getting that attachment on their to work.

    I believe you posted here before purchasing this bench, I seem to remember the general consensus being that benches that accept add on's generally aren't great, perhaps the exception being Ironmaster.

    The accessories don't work well and the front attachment post tends to get in the way, plus the additional height needed to accept a leg extension unit are really not ideal, but at 24" high, unless the user is extremely tall is in my view a serious issue.
    Personally I'd rather invest in a decent adjustable bench under 19" high and forget about the accessories.

    Wow... 24” is crazy tall. I’m 5’10” and I don’t think I could use that at all.

    The tallest bench I have is a Hammer Strength rack interlocking bench which is a little over 18” and it’s a hair tall for my liking. I have 2 other ( Hammer Strength FWAB /Life Fitness FB-31) that I use for dumbells and functional trainer that are around 16.5 to 17” and I love the height of those.

    How do you get any leg drive on that high of a bench?

    The Rep bench gets good reviews..good height well constructed.

    I personally like to grab commercial stuff on Craigslist and has worked out cheaper for me
