Not all benches are created equal

"Find a bench you're comfortable using and measure it! I didn't, and I paid the price. I'm a fairly short guy (5'4""), and this is too tall for my needs. I had to put a riser on the end so I'm not bending backwards lying down. This does not reflect poorly on the bench; this is purely for the potential buyer.
Another unfortunate reviewer had his bench packed poorly. Luckily for me, mine was packed well with plenty of plastic wrapping and enclosed parts in a well-sealed box. No worries for me.
Complaints of poor padding are well-founded. Don't expect any plush cushioning here.
Appearance is nice and sleek, protruding bolts notwithstanding.
Overall a decent bench, not a couch.
