Bench daddy.com--never again
« on: April 10, 2017, 06:07:33 PM »
I know a couple of you like them so this may offend you.

I placed an order from Benchdaddy.com on March 31.  At checkout, they force you to pay expedited shipping fee close to $10 for an item that doesn't even weight a pound.  Last week, I didn't received any updates regarding the order so I emailed them and received no response and then called them on Thursday.  I spoke with a lady that told me my order was shipped and the expected delivery date is today, April 10th.  I literally just received a shipping notice that a shipping label has been created, which means it hasn't even left their office.  I hate being lied to and I will highly recommend no one do business with people like this.  I don't care if you're some tiny po dunk mom and pop shop, you should NEVER fucking lie to your customers.  If you force us to pay for expedited shipping you better fucking expedite the order, send updates reply to emails and give correct fucking information.  I will never recommend them and will likely return the fucking thing.  If anyone ever asks what it is or where I got it from, my response will be Mark Bell's slingshot.

I thought something happened when using it and you got hurt when I read the title.

Let me know if you use it if you like it better than the SS.

Yes, that is very disappointing.  I was looking forward to using it, but I'm more upset that they just flat out lied and told me it was shipped already. If they had been honest and replied to my emails it may be a different story

I thought something happened when using it and you got hurt when I read the title.

Let me know if you use it if you like it better than the SS.

Finally received it and gave it a try today.  You can't really compare it to the SS, it's a whole different beast.  The elastic is so tight, even in 1 ply, it's a challenge getting your hands into position on the bar. My best bench with the MB SS is 455, today (2 days after a big bench day) I hit 505 and 545...so it will definitely let you put weight on the bar,  I didn't even try the single ply until 405.  I may try next week again when I'm fresh and see what I can really hit.  It's a helluva over load workout though, that's for sure. 545 feels like a truck is sitting in your hands. Vid is in my journal

What is the MB SS?

So do you like it better or no?

I have the original (red) SS and it gets me about 10% more.  I don't think I'd like to use something that lets me throw that much more weight on.  I dunno.

But I'm intrigued...

I am guessing it goes on and off easier...

For very heavy weights yes, I think it will be very helpful.

God yes, that is a huge plus, my arms are a little over 19" and a bitch to get into a sling shot, that's not even close to an issue here

Bolded....I would not recommend this unless you bench over 405 raw. You may be able to get away with the single ply at lighter weights, but I used the single ply for 405 and 465 and the weight flew up.

If you have problems with lock out this will help you be able to focus on that part of the lift as you get about 3/4's up you will be doing all the work (unless you use momentum for fling the weight off your chest..then it's more ego lifting than anything) 

I have a black mark bell slingshot am able to hit 455 with it, and I raw bench 415 so it adds a little over 9% to my lift.  The bench daddy added damn close to 25% to my bench.  I won't use it often, my once a month at the most, if that.
