I would spend more to get more, but don't want to spend more for essentially the same device.

TDS has a better looking pad and a better connection to the base frame. I am not sure if the other features are that outstanding.

YUKON:http://www.thefitnessstore.com/Qstor...11&PROD=000076

or

TDS:http://www.midwestbarbell.com/catalo...3e4d2324ef63b8

Anyone else looking, we could bundle our orders and get a quote?

The midwest one has a longer plate for your foot. THis is good as you should push with your toes/balls of foot when doing GH. You could modify the other one, and depending come out ahead money wise if you know a welder...

Paul I have the yukon one. The foot pad area gets a little shakey. And there needs to be another hole closer to the gh pad to slide the foot bar up more. I just use a small pillow to compensate for that. Its not to pricey and theres more variations of exercises you can do. Its worth it to me. Now in a gym with big time abuse i dont think it would last that long..

Paul,

I've been looking at the Yukon model as well. Here's a link directly to their site:

http://www.yukon-fitness.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=HYP -156&Category_Code=UB

I'd be willing to go in on a deal with you.

Dennis,

How are you using the pillow? If there was a closer hole to the GH pad, is there anything else from preventing the foot brace from moving closer? I'm sure I could arrange for an extra hole or two to be drilled.

Why is the foot pad area shakey? Does it just need a bigger plate or does it just shake around on the upright?

Brett, I put the pillow or seat pad against the thigh pad which puts me closer to the thigh pad b/c I have bar adjusted as close to the thigh pad as possible. Yes you could drill a couple more holes. Im 5'8" if your taller than that you might not need to drill.

Foot pad is shakey from it being raised above the pole it sits over. I have the top foot pad aligned with the thigh pad or just a little higher. But thats not a problem really.

I am leaning toward TDS at this point.

Sounds like people with the Yukon want to Mod it.

The sites I linked have good prices and free shipping, hopefully only random identify theft.

For any UK Crossfitters:

I just bought a Body Solid GHD from www.fitness-superstore.co.uk for 110 pounds. Slightly Used.

Very solid, looks like it will last forever.

They're based in Northampton and worth a look, its an aladdin's cave of equipment

Anyone care to comment on the split pad models vs. the solid pad? Is the solid pad really that uncomfortable?
