    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.
