    If it's the one that I'm thinking of, love it. Supinated grip, iso-lateral, starts just above head level out in front of you, and finishes down near your hip, on a curved path?

    Get the most feeling in my lats using this machine than anything else.

    But...I have to use it in the higher rep range. If I select too heavy a weight, it shifts from my lats to my arms and I lose that awesome lat squeeze.

    Always liked it along with the low row machine. Would max out the low row with plates but I didn't like going super heavy on the high row, too much weight and it feels like you are jerking it and don't get the full range of motion.

    Yes FD, I said Jerking It.....

    My gym has a high row cable machine which over some time I've come to like more than the Hammer Strength machine, but these are good nonetheless.

    Free motion cable machines are great. So many guys sleep on them thinking they’re just for chics.

    Whenever someone asks me what I think about an exercise I ask them where they feel it. If you do the high row and feel it in your upper back, it's great. If do it and feel it in your biceps, it sucks.

    It's not the exercises you do. It's how you do the exercises.

    Have to agree, ours goes up to 100lb per arm, you can get a pretty good pump off of that when squeezing at the right point.

    Try make two. One I really like and the other I dispose. People seem to really prefer one over the other.

    I LOVE the one with the plate rack on the back.

    This one never feels right to me. (Plate posts face out instead of in)

    Oh didn’t know that, my gym has plate loaded machines from both, I like the pressing better with the hammer but they have more back and row movements in life fitness, I use both

    Very few machines I care for. High weights + confined range of motion just causes me injuries. Barbells, dumbells, and free cables are most all Ill ever use

    Barbells, dumbbells and cables are what Arnold used most to train with, it worked for him!

    True and that is the majority of what i use too, but why not take advantage of the tools that are there to hit things even more

    Yeah, the machines are great add-ons for the finishing touches and the standing and donkey calf raises are the primary mass builders for the calves.
