Force USA Seated Calf Raise Machine
In my opinion, there are 2 calf exercises that are indispensible to a bodybuilder: the seated calf raise and some version of a donky calf-raise for the gastrocnemius (I like to use a 45 degree leg press for the acclusion effect) and this machine is one of the better ones on the market IMO. For the money, you're getting something very well built, heavy and rugged. The fit and finish are acceptable, but not stellar. A bit of shaving here and there is a must on those plastic pieces, but everything goes together well and the fasteners are properly strong. If you're looking for a seated calf raise machine for your home gym then this is ideal. For commercial use, you might want to look at something with better fit and finish so that your gym looks high end and clean, but it'll stand up to the kind of work a commercial gym will theow at it no problem. Just won't look as nice as the more expensive equipment next to it.
I am 6'6, so straight away the adjustable kneepads in both directions (along the main frame, and height) was the selling point for me. Second was ForceUSA as I have an adjustable bench which is incredible. As in the title, a few minor flaws that could be so easily rectified would have made this comparable to a $1200 commercial grade seated calf raise.
1st. The knee pads are on a swivel which I did not tighten so much that it remained upright. The swivel I am guessing is to allow for that tiny bit of play under a lot of weight. The handles fell forward and hit the adjuster knob infront and took a chunk out of the support handle you use to rack the weight. I obviously made sure to tighten that and that issue was solved.
2nd. There is no end-stop incase you need to bail, so you are relying on the radius of your weight plates. In my case, the 20kg plates I use would drop onto either side of the end bracket and likely dent the frame because they dont clear it and hit the carpet. The plates are 43cm across, 38ish cm plates would proably clear it just enough. But again, an end-stop would have prevented that and is really an essential feature you need in some capacity with these.
3rd. The frame in general makes a lot of creaks and has undesirable play even without weights. Side to side movement, etc. It's obviously a low-cost product but compared to my ForceUSA bench (as solid as concrete) I am guessing completely different people worked on this design. When you are raising 100kg (or more), the brackets could have been made a little more rigid and would have had minimum impact on the overall costs to manufacture.
4th. No retaining clips were included. Annoying as I have 1 that came with a leg curl attachment for the bench I keep mentioning and will need to buy some seperately.
I wish they made it in black. Regardless, despite the flaws it is still by far the best value and has features to suit any plate, user or weight you can throw at it.
There was an obvious delay for delivery to New Zealand but this machine was well worth the wait. Very happy with my purchase and I like this machine so much that I use it every leg day without fail. So easy to use, with such a simple movement that it absolutely does what it is designed to do - Blast those calf muscles and effectively develop the most stubborn muscle group known to mankind. Thank's Gym & Fitness for the excellent service and for supplying me with an awesome product at a great price.
