MUCH of that "something."

It will be interesting to see what you will want to trade the duo ploy pullover for a while after you get one?

Does the duo-poly pullover even exist?? I've seen a few photos but wonder if there are any still around???

BTW what would be the advantage over the plain pullover? does duo-poly really work that well?? I see the advantage for the duo squat but not sure what the advantage would be for the pullover.

The attraction may be that it's such an odd machine?? I can't imagine it's any better than the usual pullover. It would look to be awkward to use?

I'm paring down my collection mostly for space reasons. I don't need both a multi bicep and tricep when I have the same thing in the plate loading bi tri. The lower back really doesnt suit me. I never use the leg curl, I think I can get as good as ab workout doing crunches as my clam an. I don't use the leg press any more. I would get rid of my behind the neck torso arm but I fussed so long to get one that it's sentimental. It's not the greatest back machine though. So far I'm keeping my Nautilus lateral, pullover, plate loading bi-tr, rowing torso and off brand seated row and pull down. I don't feel the need for any other machine. I do have quite a few dumbells though and chin and dip bar. For legs I erg and cycle.

I agree with you on the clamshell ab. I picked mine up very cheap, spent a lot of money refurbbing it, and have been disappointed with it , find it totally unnecessary. Also, would never get rid of my Rowing Torso, can't get anywhere close to the same effect with any sort of compound row. Might start a separate thread to list movements best done with machines, and those best performed with free weights.

yes it does still exist.

It balances out muscle work since you cant push harder with other arm.

I too really like my rowing torso. It's funny how many Odd Nautilus machines I just had to have. I really wanted the oem or dip chin machine. I found it worthless for me. I just had to have the behind the neck torso arm. It's mediocre at best. The double shoulder was a must. Found the single lateral machine way better for me. Spent a fortune getting a lower back. May soon junk it. Dreamed of the ab clam and I'm glad I got it for next to nothing. The thing is though that the machines that aren't good for me may fit others better and they may love them . Most early machines were made for big and taller guys. I'm short. 5' 7".
This is hard to admit and pretty funny when I think of it. On the ab clam machine I have the pin removed and I can barely get 10 reps for 3 sets . On the oem dip machine almost the same thing on dips or chins. I worked next to Mentzer who could do the whole friggen machine while on most I used about 3 plates. That sort of puts you in your place when you mistakenly think you're a muscle man.

I don't own any Nautilus, but am a machine aficionado.
Would anyone be interested in a thread on our home gyms and equipment?, if one doesn't currently exist?.
I don't want to post my equipment and get "bullied" by the Nautilus freaks lol.

Go for it! You'll notice Turpins home gym isn't full of Nautilus and he's the most legit guy on here!

Wow I wish I had that neck machine, I'd trade it to you for those machines in a heart beat !

I owned that neck machine and sold it. It's not all that it's cracked up to be... no weight stack... you use your own muscle power to provide resistance. I'm not a fan of rotating the neck (and wearing the joint facets) and while resistance arm and shoulder force. Difficult to keep things consistent on it. I never allowed my clients to use it.
