IMO it doesn't effect performance or integrity. It does tear down the middle at first but after the initial it's fine. Upon looking at the ballista after usage the rest of the stitching stays solid. If the middle section completely ripped the ballista, I think, would still do the job as it's held well together everywhere else. The only real problem I had was finding the nack of getting the damn thing over my arms ha ha

Hope this helpsCool

There has been a few questions kicking about the forum on this, so i thought i'd give my view.

Got 1 of these from Brian a few weeks ago & used it on Wednesday for the 1st time.

Now, as it says in the strengthshop thread, the stitching along the middle does go. However, the ballista still holds together excellent, the stitching along the sides, arms etc is great & solid. After the initial rip of the middle stitches thats it.

The Ballista does the job in training!!!
I have been/am out of action for a while now due to some health issues but have been able to do a few things (not much). Like anyone, once you get a newpiece of kit you've gotta try itCool

Ballista On:
80kg 8reps
100kg 6reps
120kg 6reps
130kg 6reps

All sets felt fairly easy (considering layoff), i felt the ballista was a bit strange at 1st but i have never used any training aids before, everything has been done RAW. After initial strange feeling, positioning felt great & pressing fairly easy. There was loads more in the tank!!!!!!

To sum-up.....

Great piece of kit!!! Great Price!!!!
Get over the initial centre tear & its great!!!

Any other questions please ask.

Good luck for the British.

Squats looking strong as ever, you seem to have the bar quite low down your back. Do you let it sit just below your traps?

Nice oneCool

Cheers mate,

Yeah the bar sits below my traps

I've tried having the bar that low, hurts my bloody wrists & elbows, but the squat itself feels easy when doing it?

Good luck for Saturday, looking forward to seeing some Pb videos.
