    Looking for a second bench

    My primary bench is the Rogue adjustable 2.0 bench. I think I would like to own a second heavy duty bench. Before everything went crazy I went to a power lifting gym and benched using an Elitefts competition bench press. I really loved that bench so I am considering buying the Elitefts scholastic bench. I really like the gripper pad option and the overall specs of the bench. Has anyone had a positive experience with Elitefts lately? Thanks

    I'd get the Rep FB5000 when it comes back in stock. I doubt there's a better value in flat benches. You can also get the Rep fat pad for it or the Thompson fat pad.

    Another good thing about elitefts is they have the option of a wide gripper piad also on their adjustable bench.
    One thing I wish I would have done with the adj. 2.0 when I did it was use a wider pad, but they wanted it similar to the one they replaced, so I reused the same back pad. And similar seat.

    Yeah I really like the adjustable 2.0. The pad is a bit firm for me and I think its only 17" or maybe slightly over. I am actually going to order an Ohio power bar from Rogue once they restock so maybe it would make sense to grab a fat pad since I'd already be paying for shipping. I've never used a fat pad before though so i'm not sure how I would like it.

    I just ordered a flat bench from Rogue and got the competition fat pad and it’s very nice. Probably my favorite feeling pad on a bench I’ve used.

    Cool. I bet it will take some getting use to. I've been benching on the thinner 11-12 inch pads forever.
