Utility bench

Hey, I'm looking for a utility bench thats going to fit into my home made scaffolding power rack (when built).

Currently I'm stuck between these 2:
£139 Bench

and

£159 bench

Anyone have either of these, if so what are they like?

I basically just need the bench to go flat and incline up to 90degrees for pressing.
Only thing I don't like about the £139 bench is the pins used compared to the "ladder style" on the £159 bench.

Anyone got any info?

    I'd go for the £159 model. Both look solid and you have the option of decline with the £159 one.

    To be honest i think for the 'average' trainer you would be hard pushed to gain or lose much between the two.

    I would probably say that the £139 model has the slightly better build quality ...maybe!? It does state that it's suited for home and 'commercial' use.

    I've got the first one, and the pop pin adjustment is no bother, it's also a good bit more compact than the second one and takes up very little space if you stand it on its end.
