Solid Design & Construction with Minor Limitation
- Scrutinizing Consumer
This is a well designed and built leg bench. The materials all appear to be of high quality. The dimensions of the leg component are perfect for someone my height, 5' 11".
One thing potential buyers should know is that there is only one length adjustment to accomodate height variations in users. The "curl" (upper arm) part of the leg arm has two length positions - the heel padding arm can be brought in closer to accomodate a shorter person. The leg extension part, however, only has one setting. This setting is appropriate for someone (this is just a guess) between 5'6" to 6'3". Too far outside of that height range and you might experience limited function.
Good deal, well made - Trader Vic "West Maui"
This is a good leg machine for the money. It can hold about 130lbs of weight and seem like it will handle that without breaking. The leg pads are foam, so they may wear faster than a higher quality pad over time (but can be replaced easily). Also, there is no olympic plate adaptor that comes with the bench. The angles are perfect for leg curls and the machine is relatively compact. For leg extensions it is pretty good as well, although the handles are a little bit too far forward. But, with all that said, I am very satisified and hope to use the machine for years to come.
