I bought both the Pilates machine and the base and it is a well made product . But it would be nice if the pull cords could be adjusted in a better way than just tying a knot in them . You do need to buy the base because without it it is a pain in the butt trying to use the machine while in on the floor with no base under it . Just too hard getting on and off of the machine especially if you are older or with lower back issues so do pick up the base . I do need to order the stronger bands so as to get more resistance when working out . But all in all very happy with my purchase and should get many years out of my machine .
