2. Stability and Size: I'm 6'1" weighing in at 170lbs. The exercises I've seen other benches struggle with the most are weighted incline situps. I grab a 20lb plate, hold it behind my head and do situps left, center, right. Benches tend to twist to the left/right on those situps and it is most unsettling. This bench did not twist at all! So, I can now do that exercise much more comfortably. The bench is small, but it supports my head and is narrow enough that I can get nice and low with my presses. A bigger bench gives me a little more confidence, but I'm sure I'll work up to that with this little guy, too.
3. Folding and Storage: I'll add a picture of it folded and of the pin that lets it fold. This area was the only area that the bench disappointed me in. I was hoping it'd fold somewhere in the middle to get shorter, rather than just flatter. When it is folded, it is still the full length, it is just flat. Either way, it still fits in my closet with my weights and sandbags. Without looking in the closet, you'd never know I have a gym in my 700 sq. ft. apartment.
All-in-all I'm very pleased with this product. It was packaged well and only took 1 day to arrive (I live in a beach city near LA, so my proximity to it's source explains that). It is sturdy and fits in my closet, exactly what I was looking for!
It's incredibly easy to put together, comes in a very small box (see pic 1) compared to the size, and so on. I thought it would be unstable, but I put a remnant of carpet under it and it was solid as a rock for bench press, decline bench, single rows, fly, shoulder press, etc.
But then....as I was doing my bench press this morning, and lowering the dumbbells, I heard a nasty crack and ended up on my side with the dumbbells on top of me. Luckily, I got no injuries, but as you can see from pic 2, a pretty terrible weld job did me in. I don't think it's supposed to break like that....
Assembly took me 2 hours by myself, but I also took the time to lay out and inventory every single piece before I began to put it together to ensure that it did in fact have all required parts.
I love the fact that this bench not only inclines but declines as well, which is great for sit ups as well as working the Minor Pectoral muscles.
The only reason that I do not rate this as a 5-star product is because of its small size. I am 5' 5", and I *just* have enough room on the bench to work comfortably. Were you any taller than me, either your head or your butt would hang over the edge of the bench. That said, for someone my size, I could not have picked a better product--and it was one of the least expensive benches on the site. Just goes to show: You don't have to spend a lot to get a great piece of equipment.
Does not take up much space
Easy to assemble
Lightweight, easy to move
Unstable - noticeable amount of wobble due to the way the legs are mounted
Parts do not line up properly in some positions which compromise the support of the back
Overall does not give the solid feeling of a higher-quality bench
Upon assembling it you will notice that not everything fits together perfectly. Not a huge issue for some parts, however the way the horizontal legs are mounted to the rest of the frame suffers from some instability from this, so the bench has a small amount of wobble to it. This is really only noticeable when getting on/off the bench, but not so much while it is in use. This flaw however would make me nervous to do exercises like box jumps with it.
The biggest problem I have with the bench is also a byproduct of the somewhat awkward fit. With the bench in its completely horizontal position, the arm that supports the back of the seat lines up so poorly with the rest of the frame that it does not even make contact with one of the two claws that hold it in place. I'm worried this might eventually lead to the broken weld issue that seems to be present in several other reviews, as there is a lot of twisting pressure on the support when it is resting like this. This issue only affects the horizontal level of incline however, and not the other angles. See photos for an example.
