Quality Power Rack

  1. Quality Power Rack


    What do you guys think is the best power rack under $800? Looking for something sturdy that will last.


  2. I got a Marcy home gym with an adjustable bench (incline to decline, and sitting up straight) and squat towers. I think I paid around $250 for it at ****'s Sporting Goods prolly 4 years ago. I've had 450 pounds up on the towers before and it held together, so def. worth the money I paid. And it has a preacher curl set up, too.

    But I would like a real rack, but don't think one would fit in my basement.
    True story:

    I give a f**K!!

  3. This is what I have...a little over 900 with the high/low lat tower. Definitely well built.

  4. I was just looking at this one, Econo full power rack from Elite FTS.

    Heres the page: http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...d=391&pid=3235

    It has 3x3", 11 gauge tubing. It seems like the strongest rack in the price range. If anyone has any real experience with this rack I would like to hear your thoughts on it.

    I like that one. A little pricier though, but seems like it might be worth it.

    Anyone have that rack and can comment on it?

  6. I have this rack from elite:

    and I have lifted out of a few different racks that they make and all of them have been absolutely indestructible. We just had 925 loaded up on the rack yesterday and the thing did not shake at all when we racked and unracked the weights. I would recommend spending the little extra for the 2x2 rack with the closer hole spacing if you plan on benching out of it. If you do buy one of these racks though you will definitely have it for life so it is a good investment.

  7. I been lookin at the 3x3 but will probably end up with the 2x2. It depends where my pockets are sitting when the time comes. I hear they are very sturdy from numerous people. I want to KNOW that it will hold if I Bail on something or wont sway back and forth whenever I unrack the weight.

    That's almost the same one that I got, except mine is by Powerline. I bought it on Craigslist for $150 ($700 new), barely used. I recommend getting a used one, they hard to come across though, but usually well priced.

    I got mine used as well, paid $200 for it.

    I use this rack but can't remember the price on it, great quality though

  12. This rack has done very well for me for years:

    I just ordered that rack. Glad to hear it is treating you so well. I dont think i'll be putting 925 on it any time soon, but its nice to know it can handle it so well and not get all shaky.
