Overall a good product but areas for improvement and some help for new buyers. I'm sure it will last a lifetime. Padding is poor. Review - Good bit of kit and has already helped with a back issue and made my glutes grow rapidly. I'm a tall lifter and struggle with back and glute issues and this has been great so far.The materials are heavy duty and heavy weight on the whole. Bad A few design improvements could be made and you might need to add some basic modifications yourself. Instructions it came with are not the best and no tools or kit come with the kit so if you don't have multiple wrenches (ideally torque wrenches), or are not great or patient with poor quality diagrams, you will not be able to put this together. You can't fully tighten the bolts holding up the main moving parts and weight as otherwise the pendulum cannot swing very well at all as it hits against the housing for the moving part. When extending, the main pendulum and the feet holders can bang against each other, I added some rubber to stop that happening. Also, I may have missed it but there is no way out of the box way to attach the product to the floor. When adding heavy weight, this made the product slide along the floor. I simply raised the reach end to fix this but I'm sure there are more elegant solutions. The padding is not great, you might find after a few sets it can get a bit much and you might experience some bruising when initially used. Tips for new buyers You should also have some lithium or other form of thick grease for the moving parts otherwise they will squeak/grind and the noise will bug you. 2 x wrenches (you will need to hold the nut tight on one side whilst tightening the bolts). Some form of adhesive for the various end caps/plugs that the item comes with.
