I really like those BW's Joe linked to. $315 but they look bomb-proof. I have the TDS. I like them fine but once loads get up to around 300lbs I get a little nervous about the welds.

They were not inexpensive, but I bought the IronMind Vulcan Racks and love them. I have a tendency to buy cheap stuff and regret it later, but decided to resist that urge when deciding to purchase squat racks. I am glad I did (and wish I had done the same with my GHD, etc.).

FWIW, the BW stands appear to be very similar to the IM Vulcan Racks, but also appear to be constructed from smaller steel stock. I do not know if that would ever make a difference, but thought I should mention it.

I'll put in another recommendation for the BW portable squat stands. I've never seen Ironmind's Vulcan racks for comparison but the BW's are HEAVY.

It appears Proxima's do not accomodate bench... Do any of you all that have Proxima's find yourself having to step around the base when unracking wieght to perform squats? I worked out at a gym that had a pair of squat stands similar to those and I would have to step around the base to get clear of the rack to squat. Very annoying with lots of weight on my back!!
