Haven't got anything bad to say about this. Constructed very well, nice thick bolts that you can really tighten up. I saw a youtube video of this thing being used by a dancer who'd learnt to do splits in a short while. After doing martial arts for over 2 decades, have never been able to do box splits, but intend to with this machine. I've seen a few who've used this to good effect, and sure there are cheaper options, but I doubt they'll be as effective, as this opens on wheels and has a nice wheel to control accurately the stretch by tightening or slackening at will. I intend to use this thing in front of the TV.
