All time high price I'll wait till gyms re open n these are half the price


Gyms (like theatres) are f**ked. They, along with other community centres, will not be open for many months potentially until next year. And that is assuming the gym near you survives. If you are going to wait until gyms re-open then that's absolutely your prerogative. But a word to the wise, gyms won't be open for a long time.

What do you do with the rings at that height? Thanks.


You can do whatever you want with rings, quite literally. It's really about educating yourself and changing your mindset from lumping weights around to understanding leverage can be equally as challenging - rings have a huge benefit versus standard gym equipment, and even free weights in so much as they afford you very little stability.

At the height they're set in the picture:
Face pulls
Bulgarian rows
Australian rows
Bicep curls
Tricep extensions
Ring dips
Pull overs
Knee raises
L-sit holds
Incline press-ups
Flies

Within each of those exercises there are levels, like with press-ups, you modify to do archers, typewriters, single arm.

Here's a picture of my setup, using 6x6 posts (£420~ total cost (mainly due to posts and the cost of the complexity in the monkey bars)):

I have read it will be October
Be Christmas time / in to the New Year before Gyms / cinemas etc open and if still no vaccine by then the 2m rule will still apply - in a gym!

Rather like the idea of 2m seat space in all directions at a cinema - can spread out and have allocated space for my wheel-barrow of popcorn and "well" of fizzy drink.. "Oh stewardess... what will be this evenings in-flight entertainment.....?

All the more reason to look forward to this cool bit of kit to keep me going if delivery is soon!

This power tower looks a good product but is out of stock and there is no information pertaining to when it will be back in stock. Accordingly, you could pay for this product and not have it until August. Good price, good item, but cold from me.

So a "cold" rating just because you "might not" get the item delivered? With that logic and on that basis, many deals on here which get massive heat for price glitches etc (which probably wont be honored) shouldn't get the heat they do - But they do! Surely deals should be voted "hot" on the genuine assumption that the deal will be honoured by the retailer, if you believe the product is good and the price is good? Hence a Hot UK Deal!

I own a power tower, and scouted around for one long before this crisis hit us and I know the market. This isn't a ludicrously good price- it's good, but not amazing. The current demand for fitness equipment generally is sky high.

In terms of the delivery element, you're mixing up different types of deals. For those that get heat because there's a "price glitch" they get that heat because someone spotted a glaring glitch. In that particular case, they don't know if they'll get the item delivered because the seller may notice the glitch and cancel the sales. In the case of your deal, your item (which is a standard price for a mid-range power tower) has no indication whatsoever as to when it will be delivered. None. I even looked at the website, and Amazon writes "they'll contact the buyer when we have further information". That literally could be 4-6 months in this climate of demand. With a price glitch, a prospective buyer will know pretty soon if he or she has been successful (ie usually 48 hours).

"ludicrously good price" - I'd probably agree with you but surely we should judge given the current climate and changing buyer behaviour - gym kit hasn't been this popular since...EVER? Have you seen the 2nd had kit on the famous auction site? It's 2 to 2 times higher than the brand new stuff! And I'd be the first to conclude THIS deal I posted would be MINUS 100 degrees in seconds if we didn't have the pandemic - right? And yet this deal is 100 degrees and climbing - why? Because the benefits of this product are validated for the respectable selling price given other products we could have or want is hugely inflated and not at all "value for money" let alone a clear HOT Deal!

...erm, we all jump on a price-glitch deal hoping to get it, so even if they state a delivery date (which they all do) or offer a free next-day service at the time we all buy a "price-glitch", the fact remains if it's a suspected glitch the heat was based on price/product at the time and not knowing any delivery date prior.. and what good is an expected arrival date, when the order is highly likely to get cancelled!? My point remains about your comment that just because there isn't any indication of a delivery date shouldn't be a determining factor in voting hot/cold.

so why does knowing if and when you are going to get an order matter when determining if a deal is voted "hot or cold?" We vote price glitches HOT even though they nearly always get cancelled!

What if Amazon didn't say Temp OOS and instead said let's say delivery "3-5 months" or "delivery 1 December 2020" - How do you think people would vote? Lots of Amazon products now show Temp OOS and I've received an email within a week with a confirmed date. Let's hope this is the case for this bit of kit!

In a price glitch situation, the delivery 'date' specifically is never the primary issue. It's to do with if the deal gets honoured. Usually, if you chance that sort of deal, you'll get a standard shipping receipt if it's honoured and if it's not the seller will send an apologetic email saying the deal has been cancelled owing to the error. But that would all happen quickly. My issue with your deal is that the delivery date is completely undetermined on a product that is in massive demand. I've been keeping tabs on several power tower products on several websites (Decathlon, Marcy, Amazon, Ebay and others) and the vast majority of affordable power towers have not been in stock since the first week of the lockdown, i.e. mid March. Over a month and a half. I could be wrong but based on stock availability I'm tracking, I could easily see an item like this not being in stock for months. That's just my opinion based on my research. Not to mention the fact that the manufacturing sector in multiple countries is in turmoil.

I understand you're trying to protect your deal. I voted cold because I don't think a deal is a deal unless the deal actually has a timeframe of when it will arrive, as opposed to amazon taking your money and then saying "we'll be in touch".

And I don't think it's that good a price, and the brand is not one of the better ones. But people can obviously think or do what they like! If people want to vote the deal hot they can and will.

You commented "My issue with your deal is that the delivery date is completely undetermined." - this product could arrive Aug/Dec BUT i'd rate it HOT irrespective of knowing in advance or not. The fact I don't know the delivery date doesn't matter to me nor should it matter when people rate hot OR COLD but it shouldn't be "cold" purely based on not knowing when it will be delivered.

Vote how you wish but be prepared for scrutiny from HUKDealers when you voice your reasoning for how you voted.

You commented "I understand you're trying to protect your deal." - ABSOLUTELY NOT! People on here will vote hot or cold I couldn't care less but anyone else commenting they voted cold purely because a delivery date is not pre-determined should expect some criticism or at least allow it. I hope you allow me to critise a fellow HUKDealer as to your reason for casting your vote

Of course, you're entitled to your view and it's clear we have different opinions on what constitutes a hot deal...and you're deal is getting hotter, so it seems my opinion isn't swaying anyone!

"Vote how you wish but be prepared for scrutiny from HUKDealers"...yes, but this works both ways. And for this particular product, I know the market and item type extremely well.

Consider the following 2 deals. (please DO NOT submit the below deals as real deals, as they are hypothetical!)

For simplicity I'll label these Deal 1 and Deal 2!

DEAL 1

Price-glitch deal (let's say it's that obvious!) and a delivery date IS known (either delivered in 3-5 Working days or Next-Day option) - The majority WILL vote HOT yet is this because there is some reference to a delivery date? NO! It's because the deal was too hard to refuse and "hopefully" it will be honoured! - Reality check time - it won't be honoured as they usually aren't and irrespective of knowing an "artificial" delivery date "we" still voted HOT and no doubt a customer wouldn't object receiving the glitch deal item at any point in time beyond the anticipated delivery date period so knowing a delivery date is a utterly redundant factor!


DEAL 2 (still with me..?)
A clear, non-price glitch offer, temporally out of stock and a delivery date is NOT known whatsoever at the time of ordering. How do we vote? HOT? Yes, if you think the product is a good/great value against the deal price based on current external / economic circumstances as well as personal interests, habits and relatability of the product and perhaps MANY more factors. Do / should HUKDealers vote "cold" on such a deal purely because they don't know in advance whatsoever when the order will arrive and over-think that for some cataclysmic reason the ONLY reason Amazon or another retailer fails to state a delivery date of a potential order, is purely because they had no intention of offering delivery to customers on the deal in question as it's a collection only order from the planet Zogg!?

VOTE HOT OR VOTE COLD - COMPLETELY YOUR OWN CHOICE but surely NOT cold just because the "deal" doesn't provide you with an artificial degree of confidence relating to a future point in time!

Rant over!

My reply is - So "by knowing the market" as you claim and having "no confidence" in the item being available timely by Amazon, on that assumption you vote the deal, by default, cold? Does that extend to all Amazon deals where they are advertised as Temp OOS?

Yes, but I’d only vote cold if there were additional negative factors; namely when the product in question is averagely priced and very unlikely to be in stock soon due to being in huge demand during a global pandemic.

Yes, feels solid.

The posts are in just over 2ft into the ground.
