Concept all the way. They are the machine that breaks the least in a commercial environment. Concept themselves have always been great with service, parts etc.

+1 for Concept II - horrible things though (even at 20+ years' distance, the noise that one makes can still bring me out in a cold sweat)

Friend has one.
Horrendous piece of kit.
Superbly put together though - I'd rather stab myself in the face than sit on one though

Because it would count as training?

Because they are instruments of torture.... And yes, training is over rated :-)

Is that what people in the North call stabbing someone in the face?
