Our GHD is built from bottom to top in Columbus Ohio. We took elements the feedback from our customers and built it to that spec. The biggest issue with GHD's is the wobble, that is not an issue with the Abram.
The weight is 200LBS which is an indication of the steel involved in the construction. There are some reviews here: http://www.roguefitness.com/rogue-abram-ghd.php
There are other threads discussing this piece of equipment as well.
If you get it and for some reason you are unhappy with it we will have it shipped back to Rogue!
If you have any other questions feel free to email us email@example.com
