Ordered Sunday, arrived Friday FedEx Ground (impressed). One of the two boxes was beat up and taped together, typical for Titan Fitness (Not Impressed). One of the gusset plates, with the laser cut namesake, suffered a slightly bent corner :0( however the paint was not chipped or cracked and flattened out when tightening down the bolts :0) The ankle/leg strap works well (I can even sit on top and do leg extensions), it can move around with lighter weights. For better isolation, I'd love for Titan to release the bolt on foot roller option like Rogue & Xenious USA do (an odd side note - Xenious USA is NOT in the USA and won't ship abroad!! Whatever). So Titan, prime opportunity for you to get this high margin accessory released like quick, please & thank you <-- wink, wink, nod, nod. ;0) All-in-all, I'm impressed and would recommend the H-PND for those that have the floor space.
I had my eye on another brand for a while, but when I saw this machine and the good reviews for it, I couldn't pass it up. After putting it together and using it, I have no regrets. Solid piece of equipment. Hardware and bolts came packaged in a way that made the pieces easy to identify and sped up assembly.
I noticed some comments about the welds not being pretty, but they look good to me. I had some concern about the top pad, but it seems pretty tough too. Unless your gym is full of actual grizzly bears, I think this thing should hold up pretty well.
I was missing a durable affordable posterior chain developing piece of equipment. After researching multiple reviews made the decision to purchase the Titan H-PND. Everything I expected and more very happy with the purchase the product exceeded my expectations.
I have literally built my entire basement gym from Titan equipment, but I do have to say... this is the most well developed/executed pieces I have bought from Titan. The fit is unbelievably good, the finish (powdercoating) is very thick and uniform, and the machine literally. does. not. move. I have had a lot of weight (#300) swinging from this, and it doesn't budge!
The gym I train at (when not in my basement) has the Rogue Z Hyper, and this Titan clone is nearly identical in terms of build quality and functionality. For half the price, when I bought it on sale. Overall, I would highly recommend.
One note is that if you are building a home gym, this nearly takes up a 4' x 6' stall mat by itself, so it is not exactly space friendly.
This is my first piece of Titan equipment, and wow, this thing is very, very well constructed...it is an absolute tank. I cannot first imagine a sturdier construction, and if there is one, it is pure “window dressing,” in my opinion, as for functionality there is just no way a human being can exceed the safe capacity of this machine.
As the “economy option” of a competitor’s version of a similar reverse hyper, I was expecting some level of compromise, but I honestly see none!
Cherries on top...I got the HNP-D on sale for significantly under its ~$500 regular price, free shipping that included expeditious service—(ordered on a Monday and it was in my driveway on Friday)—and the packaging was great.
Well Done Titan Fitness...I will be back for more...a lot more!!
This thing is built like a tank, and the overall quality is exceptional. I’ve seen this machine at our current base gym, and I never knew what/how to use it. But after experiencing a recent back injury, and doing a lot of research on lower back health/conditioning I had to jump on this machine at such a low price point. Upon delivery the box was in excellent conditon, the hardware was well packaged and easy to sort through. Looking up the instructions on the website was a hassle, but assembling this device with my 2 boys was a breeze. Looking forward to adding this machine to my back recovery as soon as possible.
Great buy. Anybody looking the bucks stops here. Fast shipping, great price Commercial quality.
I finally put the H PND together this weekend and was amazed! First, during the build I noticed all the pieces and parts matched up perfectly. There were several scratches due to crappy packaging ( seems to occur on EVERY item I have received from Titan). But welds were all tight and neat along with no missing parts. Once built I jumped on and fell in love with the machine. It is awesome. Heavy duty and works just as described. It is hard to justify paying twice the price (cost plus shipping) for a ROGUE Hyper in my opinion. Overall well done TITAN. Now can you hire someone who has a clue about product packaging?
The quality is unbeatable. The cost is half of the Rogue reverse-hyper when you include shipping, which was free. Took about 90 minutes to put together but man is it solid.....no chance of it moving when using it because it weighs a ton. The movement is as smooth as can be, the pad is the perfect thickness and the handles are adjustable. Just a great piece of equipment that will last forever. Very happy with this purchase.
Blown away by this product! Its built like a tank and the best quality I have ever seen from Titan. The powdercoat is awesome and it was packed with great care. Super excited to abuse this thing for years to come. Glad i didn't pay double to get one from Rogue
The H-PND exceeded my expectations both in build and use, well worth the $600 price tag.
I've been buying TItan gear since they only had the T2 and T3 racks. Before they were called the T2 and T3. The welds on this are clean, ground down and look professional. Comparing this to my T2, and my GHD it looks like a completely different company made it. Assembly took about an hour. Pendulum sings smooth as glass, the bearings on the pendulum have grease zerks like on a car. You can lube them as needed. Build quality is spot on.
I put 300# on it and did a few reps. I weigh in at 270 + the weight on the pendulum THe HPND did not move, or rock an inch. I'm incredibly happy with this purchase. Hoping to see the quality in this product repeated in there new stuff.
My friend owns the Rogue Z Hyper which really turned me onto the benefits of this style of machine. While visually similar, after tax, shipping, and the optional cross member the Titan H-PND is literally less than half the cost of the Rogue Z Hyper. Both are constructed out of 3x3 11 gauge steel, but the hardware and side braces are significantly beefier on the Z Hyper, as is typical for all Rogue equipment, but I don't feel that I will be loading the machine up to the point where it needs that much reinforcement, and the H-PND is pretty beefy in its own right.
One thing I am impressed with is the quality of the welds on the H-PND. They are probably the best welds I've seen on a Titan product. Aside from one fillet which looks like it was repaired with some stick they are all pretty good. Motion on the pendulum is very smooth with the provided bearings, and overall operation and ergonomics are excellent.
I'd highly recommend this if you are looking for something to stretch and strengthen the lower back and posterior chain. It really helps alleviate that feeling of compression after heavy squats and dead lifts.
