Looking at these two squat racks, would you pick one over the other and why?

Well, since I'm only 68" tall, I'd choose the rack that has the 30"-60" range (ebay) instead of the 36"-66" range (NewYorkBarbells). Otherwise, they appear to be similar. The ebay model is also available in many other online retail shops, although I can't recall one off the top of my head ;)

I just bought the Powerline squat rack and it's fine for the price. The only thing I don't like about it is that the little fork where the bar actually rest is smaller than it is on the York rack. It makes it kind of difficult to get the bar on the rack. Especially when you're blown out and have some heavy weight on there. Maybe my aim will improve with time!

I just got mine from New York Barbells and it is great! I live in California and the free shipping was quick.

I haven't loaded it up with more than a couple hundred yet but it seems sturdy enough for a good amount of weight.

I have the NYBB one and it works fine. I found that when I bolted it together one of the arms was not straight, I ended up shimming it with two dimes. It holds weight just fine.
