“I have the Ironmaster super bench. It’s wide, firm and very well made with 11 angles.”
-actual customer comment on T-nation forum
“Let me first state I think its a great bench, very easy to adjust up or down, perfect for incline, decline bench presses. I bought the Crunch, Dip and Preacher curl attachments. Both the crunch and preacher attachments are great they work fine and are very sturdy.
The Dip attachment however I don’t like because there is half inch give on the bench in the upright position where it can move from side to side.”
“I have the Ironmaster super bench and love it. The only setback is that it is a little tall. It does have a leg attachment as well.”
“I am very happy with it, it is solid, easy to use, and actually kind of fun to use at the sometime.”
“The only problem that i have, and understand it is ONE problem, is that I am too tall for the decline bench presses.”
“Both the Super bench and the adjustable dumbbells are great by Ironmaster. They’re quite versatile and worth the money.”
“I’d say its a quality bench. The padding is thick like you would find on a commercial bench(i.e. at a gym) and it has good stability.”

“I think its worth it if you are going to use the incline settings. If not you can get stronger flat benches for less.”
