Product Summary & Specs
Ironmaster’s Super Bench PRO is the improved version of the Super Bench with notable upgrades including a lower height profile (within IPF standards), new locking system, transport wheels, high density back pad and wider base for increased stability. Constructed from 11- and 12-gauge steel, the bench is solid and can withstand over 1,000 pounds in the upright position and 600 in the incline.
It is both compact and lightweight (only 68 pounds with the incline seat), and with standard transport wheels now included, the Super Bench PRO can be transported and stored vertically making it a great space saver as well. And that’s not all. With 11 adjusted levels of incline, the Super Bench PRO is compatible with most PRO attachments. So, it is much more than your basic utility bench offering a myriad of ways to use the bench.
While Ironmaster did a great job with the upgrades, there is still room for some improvements. For one, the back pad measures 10.5 inches wide, which is 0.5 inches wider than its predecessor, though will still feel really narrow for some. Because the seat is an attachment that matches the back angle, there is a zero gap pad in all positions. That said, the seat remains at a constant 90-degree angle, which some reviewers see as a major flaw since it can make it difficult to incline bench press comfortably. Several users also found the tapered end of the seat to be too narrow and uncomfortable.
Made from 11- and 12-gauge steel, this bench uses a telescoping spine for its 11 position back adjustments that range from 0 to 85 degrees. The seat can sit at 12.5 or 14.5 inches from the ground, which accommodates various heights. Additionally, if you are looking to save space, the Super Bench PRO can be stored vertically.
