By H. Kim on October 11, 2008
Why I chose EP-550 Sport:

Purchased this item on Oct.6,08. Chose this model, because of a positive reputation and the easy storage function, though it was a bit more expensive than other brands. In addition, this model is supposed to have a very comfortable ankle clasp. Sport version even includes the gravity boots. So, I decided to purchase EP-550 Sport instead of regular EP-550.

The First Day:
The assembly is not hard, but the whole package is quite ponderous. Once assembled, the inversion table needs some practice, adjusting the height and weight distribution, when one first uses it. This will take a while to get used to it. Unlike some other models, this table uses a seesaw mechanism, which means there is no locking into 30, 60 or 90 degree angle. The whole movement depends on balancing weight between one's head vs. his feet by swaying his arm either toward his head or toward his knee, once the balance has been established. Make sure to view the DVD that comes with the kit.

Pros:
Gravity boots are quite helpful, and I love how I can oscillate.

Cons:
Cam Locks arrived completely broken on both sides. When I called the customer service, they knew exactly what was broken, even before I mention the specific location. Obviously, there is a proven packaging problem.

If you are less than 100 lb, you might have a difficult time going into full inversion, since there is a lot of weight at the bottom. Using the gravity boots helps a bit.

Because the table is bottom heavy, it does not fold like a video. I find that, even when I shorten the table to the maximum storage mode, the table still sways into the horizontal angle, which makes it difficult to store without scratching the wall.

Its solid, real solid...and it works great. Perfectly balenced construction makes inversion easy. Great move going with the sport model since it makes hanging upside down a lot more bearable. People often complain about ankle pain caused by inversion, however some discomfort is to be expected because our bodies are not made to be hung by our ankles. The boot kit makes inversion much more tolerable than traditional methods and I can hang comfortably for a half hour or longer in them. If you have bad ankles however look into waist supported inversion (not as effective, but much easier on the knees and ankles). If your joints can take a little beating, this is the best your gonna get!

This is a good product however it's important to ease into a routine. Until you become comfortable, do the minimum. Ignore your urge to hang upside down or you will likely spend the rest of your day nauseous.
Purchasing the boots and other hardware is a needless expenditure.
The unit works fine without add-ons. It is possible, if you haven't properly adjusted the machine to your height, to get stuck in an upside-down position which, if you're alone, could be "problematic."

Aside from the fact that the gravity boots are totally unnecessary for me (5'9 160) this is probably the single most beneficial purchase I have ever made, and is by far the MOST THERAPEUTIC tool I have ever found for my joke of a spinal cord.

Since some catastrophically poor chiropractic work following a car accident, my muscle imbalances that were present since childhood ran wild, pulling discs all over the place, leaving my spine with the integrity of a Lego building or perhaps a jigsaw puzzle. If it weren't for an excellent chiropractic technique called NUCCA, which helped me recover to at least a manageable bad back (a considerable upswing from what I had which was nothing short of a living nightmare), I probably would have jumped off a bridge by now. After trying about 800 million different things ranging from Diet & Nutrition, to Flexibility Training, to Alternative Medicine, I finally gave the inversion rack a shot.

This IS it for my condition. I almost always hit a home run in popping my spine back in place at night on this thing and the last 6 weeks have been the best of the last 13 years for me. I can't say I'm 100% because my back still gets all twisted up, but with the Teeter, I can get things straightened out before bed and I've noticed HUGE physical improvements.

I would say spinal health is the core of physical well being. I can't see how a person could end up all hunched over as an elder person if they used this tool in the years leading up to retirement. Given the discomfort I had in my TWENTIES, I can't imagine how awful it must be to have a bad back in one's latter years. Inversion is absolutely amazing and is an improvement I think over the slant board which is something I wish I'd have done when I couldn't afford this rack.

I was impressed with the quality of the product and it was easy to assemble. It looks like a lot of stuff to put together when you first open the box, but there are really very few pieces to assemble. Plan on 1 hour to unpack, read the manual, and assemble the item.

The one thing I did not like about it is that you can not quickly change between the ankle clamps and the gravity boot bar. I have not used the gravity boots that came with my unit yet. To use them you have to disassemble the ankle clamp to replace it with the boot bar. It would take very little design change so that you could do this by just pulling out a pin. But with the current design you need to get your tools out to swap out the unit. After using it a few more days I will install the gravity boot bar to see which hanging option I prefer to use.

The unit easily breaks down into two parts by lifting the table off the frame by simply sliding 2 spring loaded retainer clips with your fingers. The table is 32.5 pounds and the base 27.5 pounds for a total combined weight of 60 pounds. It is a bit cumbersome and heavy to move as one unit. When you pull the table off it is much easier to move the two individual pieces. With the table attached to the base it does not fold up into a very compact unit. You can store it in less space by removing the table from the base. Although for people with a bad back the table at 32.5 pounds could be too heavy to lift on and off the base.

I would have given it 5 stars if the design allowed you to swap between the standard ankle supports and the gravity boot bar without needing tools on this sport model. For that oversight I took off 1 star. Other than that it is very well built and feels like a very high quality item.
