    Is it in yet?
    http://www.tuffstuff.net/product/pf-318-glute-ham-machine.html

    Its not a bad machine and the manufacturer is great. You should find them for around 1499.00 retail but the cost is actually 900.00ish

    EDIT: Whoops, you should call a local comercial dealer and tell them that you have a GYM and are looking for a bid on a single piece and tell them you're willing to pick it up from their warehouse. You should get it at a decent price. Most commercial companies operate at a 35ish point margin.

    EDIT2: I noticed that the tuffstuf doesn't come with the band hooks so its going to be a matter of where or not you want those and in the end they'll cost you about a 100.00 more. The only reason i'd go with tuffstuff is because i know the manufacturers and their warranty covers pads :eek3:

    any reason why? I know its the best but does it really warrant a over $1000 price tag?

    I went with the midwestbb one and am pleased with it

    Supposedly the angle on it is perfected on the EFS one. I used one from Pro-Maxima in Houston and we modded the footplate to be bigger, and it seemed to do the trick

    Don't they usually verify if you actually have a gym or not? I think this is out of my budget...i would probably just going with the elite fitness for that price point. Thanks for the help

    I have seen Gene use the midwestbb one, if it hold him it will hold you.

    I have one. It works just fine, I've never tipped it.
