    This is by far the best cable machine out there. I have worked with several of them. The newest black and red models are slick looking.
    The foot pedals for moving the arms has been replaced by a lever at waist level. I like the foot pedals a little better, but still the best product out there. If you can fit it in your home, it is a beast, you can quit your gym.
