    I have the powertec rack.. i like it. I haven't used any other racks though, so I can't really compare it to anything.

    I've used a powertec rack for the last two years. I like it.
    If money was no object I'd probably go for the elite one, but the powertec one does maybe 70% of the job the elite one would at 10% of the cost.

    I'm in the same situation, working out alone in the basement.

    I think you'll be very happy with your purchase!

    I started the same way in my garage. I eventually added two benches (one flat, one adjustable), a good bar (texas power bar), a lot more weight, a GHR, a sled, a squat box with risers, boards, and plenty of chains and bands.
    Now two of my old lifting buddies come out to my house in Bum**** to train 4 times a week... so you'll probably have company eventually. But honestly, it would take a lot before I'd ever consider going back to training in a commercial gym.
