Solid & StableFor those worried that these stands aren't stable enough, they are. I have racked and unracked hundreds of pounds on this stand in my garage gym, and even purposefully tried to knock it over more than once, but this thing does not budge. These stands are a bit of a hassle to adjust, so they are definitely better for a garage gym than an affiliate. Something that made me choose these stands over the Rogue ones was that I am able to move them around a little but they are still solid. My garage has low ceilings, so if I ever want to do an overhead movement, I need to move the stands outside, but with the help of another person it is easy. I can't imagine doing this with the Rogue stands at my affiliate, but then again, that might make the Rogue stands slightly more stable (not that the York stands aren't). If you are looking for stable stands that you are able to move a little, these are a great option (more so than the Rogue individual stands I think, which seemed sketchy to me), but if you don't have to move your stands, than Rogue is probably better because it is easier to adjust. One drawback to the York stands is that the cup that holds the bar on the rack is just plain metal, so I've found that even after only about two months of use, the bar is getting scratched up close to the sleeve. Not the biggest deal, but I know that's not an issue at all with the Rogue stands. Overall, the York stands have served me well so far and I know they will continue to do so for many years.
