This is a great set of stands for the price although I will start by saying it would be better to pay a little extra and get the Bodymax CF 415 which would be a more stable, safe setup with more features and fixes most of the problems with this one.

Secondly, I agree with some of the previous reviews, except that 1. you can file burrs off 2. it is a very inexpensive piece of gear so stop complaining 3. lanky legs are NOT an excuse to not go to the ground in a squat, 6'2" is NOT tall and your knees will suffer, not benefit, from "tiny squats", so don't complain the bars are not high enough.

Now for the good points:

Inexpensive. Well made, well, mine was. I covered the tops with handmade 5mm leather so nice and soft landing for the bar. The rubber bits wear out, you see.

Strong. It can handle 200kg no problem, except be careful not to knock it over. You can do rack pulls from the safety pins - however, be careful if the bar rolls from the back to the front with heavy weight, the momentum can tip it forwards.

Bands. It is possible to put a second barbell at the feet, loaded with weight, and then attach bands between the bottom barbell and the top and do band bench presses. I would not do this for squats, though, obviously the bar would be in the way. Few setups allow putting a barbell at the base like this.

Dips. From the safety bars. If you remove the plastic guard you can attach the safety bars to the top arms and make them really high - OK they rattle a bit and it is not ideal, but this means you can use the thing for dips. Don't like the square safety bar? Slide PVC over it to get thick bar dipping.

Height Range. You can put it high enough to do chins off the barbell (knees bent, not the best but better than nothing.

At first glance these look great. But the manufacturing process leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.

Too much glue was used on the rubber grips on the spotters, and the rubber was too long anyway and badly cut. Burr was left on the inside of a lot of the 1mm channel. The welding is not machined and is gappy in the corners, showing the rusty metal underneath. Some of the channel was misshapen (mainly on the spotters), which mean the plastic inserts don't stay in properly.

The spotters only have a pin on one side so I would rather not use/rely them.

Good points however would be the design (they meant well), the paint job and the bolts are big enough to handle the weight.

I've been using these cf310 stands for a few months and the spotters on it are so short they're basically useless. Today i was squating and on my last rep i momentarily stalled and it was one of the scariest moments of my life. The spotters were about half a meter away but they may as well have been on the other side of the planet for all their use. Obviously i managed to make the rep but i might not have and what then? I try to lean foward to hit the spotters, miss, lose balance and fall fowards and the bar crushes my neck as my face hits the floor. St peter says to me at the gates of heaven ''so you couldnt be arsed to spend the extra 60 quid for spotter catchers eh'' and down i go to straight to hell. You have to understand that though you may believe you can make any rep through will power alone you have to take account that your body may fail you at any time. Thats not weakness, thats just accepting your a human being. There are no certainties in life and arrogance has no part in bodybuilding as far as safety is concerned. So if you are squating alone get some with decent spotters say the cf415 that is, if you want to remain alive. As for the stands themselves, i have no complaints on its functionality or build quality only that the spotters are far too short to be considered safe. I know you may say i should have know better, that it was my fault and that my complaint is only a admission of my own arrogance and stupidity. This may be true but if i'm a fool then i think atleast others can learn from my mistakes and if this review might save someones funtional limbs or even life then its more than worth a dent in my ego.

I'm sure you'll agree it's tough deciding on what kind of squat stand/rack/cage to go for. Putting aside best intentions that I'd be squatting two times my bodyweight within a couple months training, I decided to go for entry level equipment. The main alternative to these were the York stands, which at the time were about 50% more expensive than these and seemed to be a lesser design.

I got these direct from Powerhouse Fitness during their sales and they dispatched them very quickly. Only criticism I had was they didn't update the order status in my account so I didn't know they were on the way. Worked out ok, but bear in mind if you order from them.

As the previous reviewer has said, these stands are well designed, but are let down in the execution.

The good points: adjustable rack and spotters, wide foot print, decent size box sections, welds are well formed though not pretty, can probably take higher weights on the uprights.

Bad points:
Some burrs on the formed sections. Racking the bar will take some of these off, but not all.
The spotters are pinned in place on one side only; a curious arrangement as a single pin would've been preferable. I've tested it and I'm happy enough but I may drill through the box sections and fit a long pin or bolt if my weights rise by much (fingers crossed!)
The two main parts of the uprights are a `rattling fit' which is more a symptom of the price point than a problem.

In use the stands are good. Overall I'm not delighted, but I'm not disappointed either: 3 ½ stars.
