Great bench for preacher curls.
I was swayed to this bench because I was looking for one that had the option to do preacher curls on as well as the other standard exercises. I am extremely pleased with the quality of this bench.
11 gauge, 1/8 steel tubing is very solid, very heavy duty. It shows as there is no flex what so ever in this bench. The welds are of nice quality, would show no reason for failure. All of the hardware is black oxided finshed button head bolts with nyloc nuts. Backrest adjustment is super fast, super easy. The seat has 3 height positions which are easy to change. The leg braces have 4 adjustment holes, so you'll be able to find the right spot. The foam is very firm, borderline hard, and the vinyl is very thick. Overall very nice upholstry. I bought the preacher curl accessory for this and it just slides into the tube and uses a hand screw to lock it into place. Infinite height adjustment. It does have rollers on the back of the bench to move it, but you have to lift the front about 5 feet in the air in order to engage the rollers. It can be a little tricky rolling into the exact place you want it in a rack.
Overall I am extremely pleased with this bench, and would not hesitate recommending it to anyone. Official Amazon review of XMark FID Flat Incline Decline Weight Bench. Click for additional reviews.
