This review is from: York Fitness 13-in-1 Workout Bench (Sports)
Good solid versatile bench at an excellent price.
Don't let the negative reviews about setting up this bench influence your choice.
The bench is very solid and the quality all round is superb. It provides 4 Incline, 3 Decline,
4 Hyper-extension and Preacher bench functions. Plus, it folds flat enough to make storage under a bed, sofa etc easy.

All functions do exactly what they say and performance has not been compromised for the sake of versatility.
Setting up is not difficult, for instance all incline and decline settings only require the use of 1 or 2 pins maximum. Only when setting up Preacher & Hyper mode are 2-4 pins used. Once Hyper mode
has been selected, only 1 pin is moved to access all 4 positions. Probably would have helped most of us, if York had not consistently shown the incorrect pin position for pin X throughout the user manual. The manual could also do with a table showing bench setting versus pin locations. It makes it much easier to see which pins are involved from the outset. So the first thing to do on getting the bench is make up this table which fits on a single sheet of A4 and you won't need to keep turning pages in the manual. You can then see clearly which pins are involved in each setting change.

There is a pin location diagram on the side of the bench frame (which is correct) so with the table you can set all positions without ever referring to the manual.
I have enclosed such a table,

MODE PIN LOCATIONS
Storage A-1-X

Decline 1 A-1-X-# All angles are set using SINGLE pin in holes 1, 2 or 3
Decline 2 A-2-X-#
Decline 3 A-3-X-#

Flat B-3-X-#

Incline 15° B-1-X-# All angles are set using SINGLE pin in holes B, C, D or E
Incline 25° C-1-X-#
Incline 45° D-1-X-#
Incline 70° E-1-X-#

Preacher B-3-Y-*

Hyper 75° B-3-Z-* All angles set using 1 or 2 pins in holes 1, 2 & 3 or A, B
Hyper 60° A-3-Z-*
Hyper 50° A-2-Z-*
Hyper 35° A-1-Z-*

I would not hesitate in recommending this bench to anyone

Thank you for your comment. I have now had the bench 6 months and my only regret is that I didn't buy
it sooner.
Cheers
