Quality, Heavy Duty Flat/Incline/Decline bench - Tough Critic
Once you have the bench assembled you will be very happy with this solid, well made weight bench. The assembly is tricky and there are no instructions except for a parts diagram that can be difficult to follow. You will need wrenches and/or a metric socket set to properly assemble this bench. This a a heavy duty bench that is rated up to 1,000 pounds and Bodysolid provides a lifetime warranty. I found the bench to be very stable and comfortable. I have used it in all modes: incline, decline and flat and the adjustments are very easy. There are two wheels on the base which are useful when you want to move the bench. In summary, I believe this is the last weight bench I will ever need to buy.
Great but not without flaws - V Cajo
Very good product but has some flaws. Mainly the fact that when using attachments the other side of the bench will get off the ground so you have to weigh it down with some extra plates before using attachments. If you have space look into GFID71 - from what i heard that one doesn't have this issue. Otherwise, if you are tight on space, this bench will do just fine if you're willing to deal with this problem.
Good bench for the money

The bench was in very good condition when received. I took my time assembling it and it went together easily, only referred to the sketchy directions twice, after all it is a bench. Not too taxing.
This bench is solid! No wiggles, or shakes, and it can support more weight than I am able to lift, but then I'm an old guy. Some have mentioned the gap between the seat and backrest in the flat and full decline position. I have not found it to be a problem. I have never felt it. Just in case, I had some extra foam to fit in there, but haven't needed it. The only knock I would have is that it is a little tall for my squat rack in the decline position, but it's really a nit.
This is my second piece of Body Solid equipment, I have their cable crossover. I also have a Powerline ab bench (made by body Solid). I am very happy with their equipment and would definitely buy again.
