    10 pounds. if the machine is not greased properly, the friction can make it feel like more.

    pretty sure its 10. its the fixed plane (range of motion) that makes it seem like more. man, now you got me 2nd guessing myself.

    I would say about 20-25 lbs...just going off of how much weight difference it usually makes for me per set. But you also have to think about every smith machine probably not being created equal.
