after 3 months of numerous calls and threats my abslide finally came. i was very skepital when opening the box, because someone wrote on this site about it being a toy. well it looks exactly like what's shown on tv, and exactly what you would get for 39.99. i'm actually surprised at how sturdy it is. i've used it a couple of days now and i can really feel it in my abs, shoulders, and back. it seems like a descent product for the price, but the company probably won't do as well as they could because of all the sneaky, underhanded things they tried to put over on the consumers.
