NY barbell Rack Opinions

sorry it is a log link

Well the time has come for me to get a new power rack that will last me years and be of much better quality than the old weider I have now.

This is the one I am leaning toward and would like you alls opinions on it. I would also be getting the high/low lat station. Just like the middle pic. Seems like a great deal @ $550.00 on sale.


Thanks for the input.


I looked at the NYbarbell racks last winter but ultimately chose the Elite Fitness build your own rack with flat bench.
It cost more but is rock solid. I don’t regret it at all.
I also considered the lat pulldown addition but didn’t get it.
Unless you have a lot of room, it pushes the rack farther out from the wall.
It also may be problematic when you are unracking a bar for squats or good mornings. I didn’t want something in front of my head.
Consider the Elite Fitness rack if you can afford the extra $$$. A separate lat pulldown/row machine is a better setup IMO.

Major thanks for the reply,
Iwasnt sure if any one would.
Little late though I just ordered it.
I think I will be happy with it though.

I just couldn’t justify/afford the Elite price


I’m looking at the same rack, for the same reasons as you. I’d love to hear how you feel about it after you use it for a while.
How is your mom doing?
old dogg

I’ll let you know how I like it.
Should get it next week I hope.

Mom is doing ok. I talk to her a few HRs a
day at least. Just trying to get her
healthy in body and spirit befor
starting radiation next week. I will post
of course as things arise. Not looking
forward to this next step but they say
the outlook is good. I will be going back
to her for a visit in the end of June or
early July. I cant wait.

Thanks for asking.
