Great equipment, if you're tall enough anyway 12/22/2013

There are plenty of positive reviews and I agree with them, so I'll just get straight to why I gave it 2 stars. I'm 5'7, 150lbs and it's not effective for shorter guys. I have to fully extend my arms to pick up/set down the barbell. Pretty sure I tweaked a nerve in my elbow. The seat is adjustable, but the armrest isn't. Powerline should have used similar parts for the armrest bar so it too could be adjustable, but they didn't. Good piece of equipment but definitely doesn't deserve a 5 star rating if it's cutting off a range of potential users. It should state a minimum ideal height for safe use. Shorter guys, find one that is adjustable. I was going to upload a photo but wasn't sure if anyone wants to see a dissembled Powerline Preacher curl collecting dust in a basement.
