I have a connection at a local wholesale fitness dealer who sells body solid equipment and I can get a discount on their equipment. Unfortunately, they do not have either on display so I am asking those of you with experience with the PPR200X Powerline and the GPR378 Bodysolid rack for buying advice.
The GPR378 is about $200 more than the PPR200X and I understand it is more sturdy (thicker steel). Are there other features that make the GPR378 worth the extra money (hole spacing, ease of spotter bar/j-hook movement, etc…)?
FYI I have been lifting seriously for about six months and am squatting in the low 300s and benching in the mid 200s at 225# body weight. I want to stay at the same weight and really push myself so this rack should see squats in the 400-500# range and possibly more.
Thanks for your help!
