I recently bought this bench from Amazon for $199. It's built very solid, however the two swing arms that hold the upper frame to the base are the weak point. So yes it is a bit wobbly. I don't really see the point of being able to move the bench forward and back with respect to the base. It really just adds weight and makes what would otherwise be a very sturdy bench a little wobbly. Aside from that the bench is fantastic though. I've thought about adding a bolt or something to lock the base and upper part together.
I've been using it for bench, inclined bench, leg extension... It is easy to adjust up and down, and yes it does decline, not super far, but it does, and there is a pin to lock out the lower leg pads for doing decline sit-ups.
The leg extension part is removable if you didn't want it on there. And it's sturdy enough. I've done one leg extensions with 70 plus pounds and it is still smooth. Amazon has some weights at decent prices as well.
