Why I Bought a Smith Machine System

It's important to get as good of a piece of equipment as you can afford, you'll be using it every day for many years to come, so don't try to skimp by with some piece of junk from Walmart!

The Parabody Smith Machine came with a full 200 pound weight stack, high and low pulleys, a linear ball bearing smith system with 7 degrees slant, safety catches, long and short bar, built-in weight horns and a great warranty.

I was even able to negotiate the price down from $2200 at my local fitness equipment store, and ended up paying only $1599!

I highly recommend getting a 7 degree smith machine if your budget allows. The Parabody is one good option, and Body Solid makes a nice smith machine too, but it's not quite on par with the Parabody Smith System.
