Default Squat Rack/Power Rack Opinion

Hey guys,

I think im going to go with either of these. Opinions?

here they are:

http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/92563.html
http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/92565.html

I have a pullup bar already, however one on the rack would be better (dont need to go upstairs like an animal!)

Also, my ceiling is.. over 7ft easily.

I plan to use it for OHP, Bench, Squat, Chins (if i get a bar with it) and maybe Rack Pulls in the future.

Thanks!

I like the taller rack personally. I know BtB has the sumo rack, but I like the extra height and the ability to add more attachments since you have the room for it. Both of them are solid though, no wrong choice as far as worksmanship.

The price is right for either. I personally bought a rack more similar to the taller one.
When I bought my rack one of the things I looked for was a maximum weight rating. I didn't see that on either one of these racks.

I think I will go for Power rack. But that's just my opinion.

I have the 6ft version of the full power rack (low ceiling).

Its great for the money and easy to put together. Its wobbly as hell at times, but all I do at home is assistance work so it can stand up to the weight safely as long as I weigh it down with some plates.
