Honest opinion, 25 Jan 2010
I pay A LOT of attention to reviews and this is actually the first time I've created one myself. I'm doing so because there are a lot of conflicting reviews. Seems people either love or hate this bench.
If you do weights - this bench is not heavy. Just 22kg and can be easily picked up and moved around. Perhaps up and down stairs wouldn't be much fun though.
You only need to glance at the instructions to figure out how the bench works and it's more about understanding how it works rather than memorising the positions. You won't need to refer to the manual.
The bench position can be changed without moving it at all, let alone put it on its side. Granted - you need two hands for this statement to be true. It takes 30 seconds to change 3 or 4 pins. If this is too much for you - work out on the floor perhaps and forget getting a bench.
The quality is very good - not commercial level but vastly exceeding most home benches I've come across before. I can see this lasting a long time.
It's very comfortable. You won't be dissapointed, and if you are, you shouldn't be buying a gym bench because changing plates on a dumb bell is likely to be complicated for you too. Glad I bought it.
