- Great Bench
We bought this bench 3 years ago it's taking a beating for sure! We recently just ordered a second one exactly the same, and some 1090 select tech dumbbells, because it works and now at least 3 people can work out in our home gym without much wait time. Bowflex is awesome.

- Bench looks good and does what i need it to do
Shopped around for a multiple adjustment bench and looked at this one at the West Ed Mall. It does incline, flat & decline and it adjusts quickly (unlike some other benches with twist knob). It also flares out slight on the lower portion so it gives excellent back support. Unlike the other "tall" review, I am 6ft and my back did not feel like it was falling through the crack between seat sections on the bench.
Colors are good. Adjustable pads on bottom really helped because I know the floors in the basement are uneven.
Does exactly what it's supposed to!

- This Bowflex Bench is SOLID
I bought the Select-Tech 552 dumbell set w/stand, so I needed a bench to go with it. I saw this was the 'matching' bench and had good reviews, so I went with it without much shopping around. I think I paid about $310 before tax and with a small credit. As I did not shop around, I don't know if this is a good 'value' compared to other brands.
As far as the bench itself, it is very sturdy. No wobbling while you are using it - this is a big plus. It also looks very nice and obviously matches my other equipment.
The adjustment options are nice to have, but to me they are mostly unnecessary. I only use it in the flat position and one incline position. I can't imagine what one would do with all the other positions, but maybe someone who is more sophisticated in their work out could utilize them.
The leg attachment, again, is very sturdy. I didn't buy it for sit-ups, nor would I recommend this to someone who wanted it solely for sit-ups, but if you want a bench primarily for lifting that gives you a sit-up option, this will work just fine.
As to the negatives... there is a opening in the bench where it folds up. It is really in a bad place (atleast for me, I am 6' 3") - right on the small of the back. It is uncomfortable and seems like it could cause injury. I am able to get around it by scooting my rear as close to the end of the bench before I lay back. Still, it seems like this could have been designed better.
The assembly was simple and consists primarily of using washers and bolts. On mine, on the bottom end, the welds were in the way of one of the holes I needed to put a bolt/washer through. The washer would not sit flat and it was very difficult to get this one tight.
Another complaint would be that the wheels are useless the way they are positioned - you will just end up dragging it from one place to another. And the bench does not fold up for storage, so it may not be the most compact bench to tuck away when not in use.
Overall, I would recommend the bench and I would buy it again considering the price.
