Flybird or Vanswe adjustable bench. Does anyone have a recommendation on these benches? They both seem very similar as far as price/max weight/price point. There could be other options out there but I would like to stay around that price point.

Hi, I believe Powertec made a white colored rack previously but does anyone have one or can confirm around what year these were made. Also, if anyone has one, can they confirm whether the newer attachments are compatiable (i.e. 60mmx60mm square tubing, 1" pins accessories). Thanks.
