It was a very professional and efficient experience.
I purchased "The General" to upgrade from a amazon-special rack I no longer trusted. Despite UPS's best efforts to destroy it, it showed up unscathed just thee days after I ordered it. TSC got me a rack faster than amazon can ship a book. The rack is a confidence inspiring tank. It's the opposite of cheap, it's an investment in a safe, quality home setup. I only regret not upgrading sooner.
I bought "The General" rack a few months ago and train on it regularly. The construction is solid and reliable. I am extremely pleased with it and also own the plates, etc from The Strength Co. TSC always puts a priority on craftsmanship and customer service. Buy this rack and you will not regret it.
I feel safe when lifting now having safety pins and a secure racking position. My new bar has great grip.
Got this rack about a month and a half ago. Wanted to work with it for awhile before reviewing. Overall, it performs its intended functions well. But there is some room for improvement. My biggest gripe is that the safety bars aren’t long enough. If you jiggle the rack enough, over time they can fall out. This is dangerous and, frankly, inexcusable since an extra 2 or 3 inches or so of bar length would rectify it. Also, if you want to bench safely by yourself, it needs to be anchored to the floor. Every time you go to rerack the bar after a set— if you’re doing it properly with elbows locked out— the whole cage moves a few inches back. This can also be an issue if you walk your squat back into the rack with anything resembling force. It’s short. So, if you want to press inside of the rack, you’re SOL. Unless you’re Vern Troyer. And you aren’t. Cause he’s dead. Obviously, this could be a plus if your ceilings aren’t high. Assembly was easy. Took a friend and I about 40 minutes to put it together. Parts of it were scratched pretty significantly if you care about stuff like that. Customer service from the company has been outstanding. Grant handled a pretty ****** email from me about a separate product with courtesy and professionalism, and refunded my account instantly. Good product. It works. But falls just short of outstanding.
