What do you guys think?


the tuff stuff rack or the bodycraft rack or the bodysolid rack?


I want the closer spacings, so I ruled out the Powertec

When I say bodysolid, i am not talking about the standard power rack, but their upgraded "pro" model

Iíve been researching the same thing myself. For me it was a toss up between the body-solid pro-power rack and the tuff stuff(tpr-265) Iím going with the tuff stuff. Theyíve got the catches on the outside as well as the inside front and back. Also, the catches are tall so they protect the cage when you bring the bar back to the resting position. I think the tuff stuff has 11 guage steel and the bs one is 12 gauge. Not much difference, but a little thicker steel. At a dealer near me you can get the Body-Solid Pro-Power Rack for $399. Iíve gotten prices of $450 and $500 for the tuff stuff. Itís a little bit more, but I think itís worth it. Iím getting the lat attachment and the tuff-stuff plate loaded attachment looks a lot better. The lats another $300. It has the dual rod guide system like the plate loaded version. The lat/ low row bars are nicer also. My 2-centsÖ..hope it helps.
