Shipping and Assembly:
The CA-27 leg stretcher comes semi-assembled, but it’s an easy task to complete the job yourself; you just need to add a couple of parts to the main structure, but no tools are required.
What We Love About the Valor Fitness CA-27 Leg Stretch Machine:
A major advantage this leg stretcher boasts over its rivals is the fact its leg supports are adjustable. This is a serious selling point of the Valor Fitness CA-27 machine as the majority of alternative leg stretchers have fixed supports, and these have proven uncomfortable and, in actual fact, unsupportive of the user. The CA-27, in contrast, offers the opportunity to personalize the machine and ensure the supports are situated in the best possible place for you, meaning this machine can be adapted to suit your height.
Stretch Degree Control
Another great feature of the CA-27 is the steering wheel mechanism used to control the degree of your stretch. The great thing about the steering wheel control function is that you can increase or reduce the degree of your stretch in very small, gradual increments, and the movement is nothing but smooth and continuous, not jerky and abrupt as you may find with a crank lever.
What Isn’t So Great
Ability to Measure Progress
We feel this machine could be greatly enhanced if it were to include a measuring device that would enable users to monitor the degrees of the stretches they complete on the machine and adequately track their progress. This is a feature included with some other leg stretcher machines and, sadly, slightly disadvantages the Valor Fitness CA-27.
It’s also worth mentioning that the structure of this leg stretcher can feel wobbly, despite your best attempts to assembly as effectively as possible. As long as the parts are correctly attached, this shouldn’t detract from the effectiveness of the machine, but possibly from your comfort using it.
Final Word on the Valor Fitness CA-27 Leg Stretch Machine
Valor Fitness is a great company and the CA-27 stretching machine is clearly one of the most popular and effective leg stretchers around. The CA-27 Leg stretcher’s ability to achieve results is unquestioned, and it’s well worth considering whether you subscribe to the belief that its alluring strengths outweigh the potential flaws of this machine, especially when compared to the more major flaws of many of its rivals.
