Anyone own this able to comment on the grip? Some benches feel like a slip and slide and annoying while benching

I have the 5.1 and don’t slide around on it, even full of sweat. Great bench for the home!

I have this bench, it's alright. I think the 5.1 would be better with more inclined options. But if you just need a basic bench it does the job

Would this bench be okay to use for benching with a full power rack?

$199.999! Not even $200! I'll say keep the change.

Sorry OP. Can't help myself. Thanks for the deal.

Personally i dont like it because there is a gap between the seat and back when it's flat.
Planning to return mine soon and pickup one without a gap.

I have this bench it's great. It's missing the 30 and 60 degree incline....however with a quick (Taken from Amazon review poster DawgBone):
If you have a 1” x 4” piece of lumber, a couple of wood screws and some glue, you can fix that. See the photos.

I made mine about 6” long. The length you use will determine the angle of the inclination. I was too lazy to actually pull out the protractor, but I think it’s pretty close.

let me know if you find one without a gap.

I'm setting up a home gym and would rather have 1 adjustable bench instead of a flat bench strictly for bench and an adjustable one for accessories.

This looks to be really good, check out the videos on youtube. Pricey though: https://fitnessexperience.ca/collection ... -bench-pro

I’ve had mine for almost 5 years, got it direct from Bowflex on sale with 1090s and the stand. Walmart has the 5.1 for $299 but currently OOS. I can’t recall what I paid but it was a bundle offer.

I'm also looking for ironmaster adjustable dumbbells but cant find them anywhere!
There was a Canadian site I can't remember which, but they had a pre-order for $899 for the 5-75lbs, shipping not included. It seems all the stock arrives in Ontario, so it's really pricey for us BC guys.

Fitness depot's super stealth bench does the job. It's very sturdy and it's made in canada

As an RFDer i am disappointed that you did not ensure you were posting the best price :facepalm:

However only certain stores have any stock

So I've found an individual that 3D prints two pieces to makes this into a 5.1+ incline options. I am in Vancouver and he ships from Ontario. If anyone wants to group buy, we can save on shipping I guess. Let me know if anyone is interested as I will be getting one this month.

Why not use a piece of 2x4?

Definitely not the same. Just as the 5.1 gives gives two more spots to adjust to, these two printed pieces add several spots and an option to lift the seated area into an incline position.
