Id look at tydax https://tydax.com/adjustable-bench
It seems to come in stock fairly regularly and they seem to have a pretty good reputation for quality. Their support team is also really quick to reply to any queries.

I don’t understand why they don’t do curbside pickup. There is no reason why they can’t resume that safely. Shipping kills a lot of their deals like bumper plates.

A month in I contacted them to cancel the order they got back to me 2 weeks later and said opps sorry it shipped. Then the products came missing pieces and it took them weeks to get back to me again.
Was this in Ontario?

Ouch that sucks. I think usually they're much better, I ordered some plates on Saturday and they're all arriving tomorrow.

I purchased the cheaper DF-1161A model back in mid-August. It only took a few days to ship to BC but I guess it was easier to move goods in the Summer. Came in two packages, heavy AF

How do you like it? Can you fit plates on the rack? There was a review that said it was very slightly too small for standard bumper plates.

Was eyeing that and the half rack as well. Half rack won the favor of the partner but it's been backordered.

I ordered an item that was “in stock” 3 weeks ago (in Ontario). They hadn’t shipped it out. Cancelled it and bought it on Kijiji for $300 cheaper than their increased price and outrageous shipping costs.

I don't bother with the built-in weight storage... pretty useless especially if you need to place the rack right up against the wall.

Overall, I'm very happy with the rack although you can tell they rushed the manufacturing to meet demand. It's a bit rough around the edges. But it's mostly a cosmetic thing.. it functions as needed.

Note to all the assemblers.. it's 11 gauge steel (or 12 can't remember). It's solid and sturdy enough for weight bearing, but be careful when you tighten the nuts/bolts. The metal will definitely bend if you over tighten. I made that mistake and can see some slight imprints on the posts. Again, mostly a costmetic thing (I hope)

TIP: I also purchased some strong magnetic hooks off Amazon for hanging up the collars, resistance bands, handles, etc. Overall works great!

Check out northern lights FID bench. I used to have one before I sold it. Or anything similar to that quality and thickness of metal. I bought a couple of used 100-150 dollar benches recently because I was cheap. They work as long as you aren't going heavy AF but those cheap adjustable ones wiggle left and right. It bothers me a lot but I mean, it'll do for now. I have no weights to load up on the bench anyways because all the dumbbells are always sold out everywhere.

Even the padding feels cheap. It compresses quite a bit and the stitching loosens over time.

Edit: I also forgot to mention that I also picked up one of AmTsaffs cheap adjustable benches. I think it was one of the 150 dollar benches. I returned it. It also doesn't inspire a lot of confidence for heavy weights. It also wiggles left and right and the whole bench itself u can pick up with one arm.
