I’m restricted to anything that ships amazon prime because i’m in alaska and freight is ridiculous. I think i may end up going with this one, i think i’m actually fine spending the extra 100 to not have to spend more down the line if i do decide i want adjustable

Any recommendations on where to purchase an adjustable bench here in Canada? Budget is around $300-$400 CDN. I currently have the Northern Lights FID bench but it is a bit too high for my liking at 21″ and the AmStaff flat bench. The AmStaff flat bench is the ideal height and width at 17″ H x 11″ W but would like to buy an adjustable bench to replace the two to decrease the clutter.

Currently, I have looked at the Rep Fitness AB-3100 V3 on Amazon for $358 CDN total. The price doesn’t seem too bad considering that if I bought it from the Rep Fitness website and shipped it to a nearby US city, it would cost $237 USD with shipping which converts to $309 CDN. Does anyone have any thoughts on this bench, I see quite a lot of good reviews and some reviews that say the pad feels a bit cheap or the bench wobbles a bit. Can anyone comment on the quality or longevity of the bench and if the bench is worth buying for at $358?

If there are any other recommendations that anyone has for buying an adjustable bench in Canada, I would love to hear it. The only exception is I don’t want a bench that has a seat that flairs out like Rep Fitness AB-3000 FID Adjustable Bench. Would prefer a bench that has the seat and the back pad roughly the same width. Ideally a bench that is roughly 17-18″ in height and 11-12″ in width.

What?

https://www.amazon.com/Rep-Adjustable-Bench-AB-3100-V2/dp/B075Z7SML5

There are 14 reviews.

8 5-star reviews (57.14%)

2 4-star reviews (14.28%)

So 71.4% of the reviews are 4 or 5 star reviews (and 57% of all reviews are 5 star)

0 3-star

0 2-star

4 1-star

I can only speak for the one I have, which is great. But saying that the amazon reviews are brutal seems like a poor generalization considering 10/14 are really good reviews.

Inconsistent? yeah, maybe. Mixed? Yeah, okay. Are there some that are brutal? Yeah. But if you were going to make a generalization about the reviews as a whole, it would make more sense to say that they’re good than to say that they’re brutal. “Mostly good with a few bad reviews” would be the most accurate probably.

They’ve clearly shipped some that had issues. But the reviews i’ve seen on this sub, on Amazon, etc., and my own experience mostly suggest that it’s a really solid bench. There is a slight change you may get one that has an issue it seems.

Remember, you are much more likely to hear from people who have an issue than those who do not. Search for that bench on this sub and you will find many positive comments.
