Not for heavyweights.
on 20 April 2012
Not a bad little gadget, but unfortunately size really does matter!!!
Product description says it's adjustable but I'm a large man with a 52 inch chest and I'm afraid it's just not adjustable to these dimensions! On it's widest setting, I can just-about hook it over my shoulder... but it's not properly (or comfortably) set in place and just points up in the air rather than being seated horizontally as required for most shots. Description doesn't state a maximum size, but if I was 30 to 40 stone I could understand. These days being 20 stone is not a great deal more than average, so I would expect a product made for today's market would accommodate such proportions.
In my younger days I was quite into bodybuilding and my large chest is partially due to this fact... and not purely a symptom of more recent years of neglect since I began suffering from arthritis in my mid twenties!
BTW: It's interesting that in today's gluttonous world that even exercise machines (for the home market) do not generally accommodate anyone above about 18 stones in weight. I would have thought that it would be just THOSE people who actually need them most!
Anyway; for the price I paid I probably won't return the item, because I think I may be able to make a few modifications so that it will fit.
If I fail, I will just put the whole thing down to experience.
I hope you will find this review helpful.
