For the price, this is a good enough back extension bench.
Pros: 1) This bench has integrated foot pads, like a professional grade bench does, and others in this price range do not; 2) The construction is heavy enough for back extensions, the parts fit well together, and the painting is good quality; 3) The pads are dense, good quality, likewise with plastic components; 4) It took only a few minutes to assemble with a socket and box-end wrench; and 5) The bench extends in and out easily if you put a little white lithium grease around the collar.
Cons: 1) Mine has a very slight defect (which does not affect performance) in the angle at which the leg-pad cross bar attaches to the frame. This may or may not be typically of others. My wife thinks I'm too picky, but it's just not quite square; 2) Dip bars are worthless for me; they are tucked too far underneath the pads, to the point that I wonder if I misunderstand the intent. Even if they were not, I'm 6' 4" and 230, and the tubing for the extending portion is too light to have extended for my height, and still support my weight. I only tried it once, but I'm sure the deflection I cause at my height/weight would bend the bar so it would no longer retract into the frame.
All-in-all, I'm happy with the bench, but if I really needed the dip feature, at my size, I would need to buy a professional grade bench. If you're lighter and shorter, this will probably work well for both dips and back extensions.
I did a lot of research prior to chosing and buying this back extension and this was the cheapest I could find on the net. The product is great, no defects, all the parts were there, pads were intact, and instructions were easy to follow. I wanted this addition to strengthen and stretch my lower back and core muscles and it works great, my lateral and lower torso muscles are getting stronger and tighter. Just what I wanted and what my lower back needed prior to winter. I would recommend this for others but also tell you that you need to work your middle and lower abs with a different exercise/machine as well for symmetry.

I purchased as Christmas gift for my son, a doctor in residence. He set it up with no difficulty by following directions and using tools on hand. The bench functions as expected and allows him to do the exercises he envisioned. He is very pleased with his Christmas gift.

Thank you personalsafetyzone for the question about the 45-degree Powder-coated-steel and Vinyl Back Extension Bench. The bench is not set up to do preacher curls even though you get the bench to sit on in the proper place then you could do it. It is up to you on that. We don't know any one who has bought this or done preacher curls on it as well so you would have to ask someone you know that has it or used it at least. We hope this was helpful and thanks for shopping Overstock.com.overstockcustomercare1 on May 16, 2013
