650 lbs weight limit on the one you posted. 850 lbs weight limit on the one with rebate. I belive that numbers speak for themselves.

I doubt it will handle 850 lbs. Both benches are about the same weight so probably similar gage tubing and similar weight capacites. Besides who needs an 850 lb weight capacity on an FID bench?

FITNESS FANTASY makes a great weight bench.

FITNESS REALITY makes a super solid clothing rack.

From product page/reviews:
It will adjust so that it lays pretty flat for storage, said would probably go under most beds

Can be set so that there is no gap between seat and back in any position (FID) which is nice

My 2 cents it might not hold 850 but will hold everything 95% of normal folk could through at it
If you are super-serious about lifting (talking more than someone that is 250lb pressing 500lb) and trying to get huge you probably already aware that a $150 bench is not for you.

Just fyi to people thinking about starting up a home gym. Buy quality, buy once.

You are better off watching craigslist and buying a used commercial bench for $150 which are commonly available than buying one of these "Macy's" style benches

Multiple scenarios play out the same in the end.
1. Buy a bench and it turns into a clothes rack. That used commercial bench you bought for $150 on craigslist is still worth $150 to resell. This cheap bench would be lucky to get $50.
2. Start a gym and get really into it. You will soon outgrow this bench, where you will not outgrow the used commercial model.
Even if it supports "850lbs", I'm sure that is static load and evenly distributed on all legs, which does not translate directly to a person lifting the weights.

I followed your advice and ended up getting on Craigslist an almost brand new Body Solid GFID71 bench rated at 1000lbs for $175.

This guy speaks the truth. I slowly found good deals on craigslist and online (was already very much into lifting) - eventually sold it all on CL for a profit to switch back to a big box gym (mainly turned a profit because i got a really good deal on my bumpers and everything else was even)

P.S. Home gyms are not good for the wallet if you live in a populated area with many gyms (say 20$ a month - 240 a year - 1200 for 5 years). The stuff I racked up sold for 1200 (and its easy to hit that if you are into lifting 6 - 8 45lbs bumper plates, 2 bars, a rack, fid bench, horse stall mats, power block dumbs 50 or 90 set - thats a standard setup imo)

Possibly different safety factors to calculate their stated maximum capacities, if design is nearly or exactly the same.

Depends on how you're purchasing:

My home gym breakdown:
- $180 for 4 x 45 lb bumper plates new from Walmart
-$110 for the popular Fitness Reality squat rack new.
-$50 for a Body Solid adjustable bench.
-$180 for a Body Solid lat machine
-$900 for a new ProForm treadmill new.
-$200 for used 400 lb of plates and a variety of barbells.
-$35 for dip bar attachments for the squat rack.
-$300 for 90lb used PowerBlocks

For the convenience of just going to my basement and for $855 for my own weight lifting equipment, the upfront cost is well-worth it. Same goes for the nice treadmill.

Down the street is a Super Sport 24 Hour Fitness. While it's an amazing gym, I hate paying $600-ish every 2 years from the Costco deals during the holiday. The equipment has already paid for itself as I've collected the equipment over the span of 5 years since moving into my house.
