There is this one:

http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...id=167&pid=581

Which is the one I am thinking of getting cause you can do wider stances.

But there is also this one:

Which would be cheaper.

And there is this one:

http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...&cid=167&pid=7

Cheaper still...

While money is a consideration, I can afford any of these. But I don't like wasting money. I also don't like buying things again when I wish I would have bought it in the first place.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks

The toe plate on the first one does not look long enough to securely place your feet against it. The two less expensive models appear to have considerabley longer toe boards.

I have the 3d Elite GHR you linked. It is heavy and rock solid - I wouldn't hesitate to recomend it for any athlete, no matter how big. No comparison to the cheapos with failing welds. At least at the time I bought it (well, got it for xmas) it was shipped unassembled, which cut shipping costs way down (came UPS, not freight) which made the pricing even more attractive.

This is what happened to my Yukon. You get what you pay for.

I also have the "regular" Glute Ham Raise and love it. I don't miss the stepping board or the two-tone pad you get with the Deluxe, of course, if that's worth a hundred bucks to you, knock yourself out. (I mean, it is a nice looking pad...)

Mine came assembled, on a pallet, and now sits in my garage, getting used frequently. Get it, you won't regret it.

It's not a money issue, the Regular simply ought to give you everything you need.

Of course, I'm also tuned in to the "I just want it" issue, which explains why I have slightly more weight in Eleiko bumpers than I can deadlift right now. :-p
