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.
