The Ironman iControl 400 is featured as one of the best inversion tables over $150 in our guide to inversion tables and features some really nice functions, not found on similarly priced inversion tables.
The main highlight of the Ironman 400 is the disc brake system that sets this table apart from the many inversion tables that use a tether strap to control the incline angle. Rather than having to dismount the table in order to adjust the incline angle you can use the handy lever on the side of the Ironman iControl to lock the backrest at any angle.
The brake system is particularly useful if you are just starting out with inversion allowing you to build up the incline angle gradually. Or if you like to perform exercises safely such as sit ups when you are inverted at any position up to 180 degrees.
The frame of the Ironman iControl is made from strong scratch resistant steel that has been powder coated. One minor downside however is that the iControl 400 holds a little less weight than other tables (275 lbs).
There are some other stand out features on this inversion table that make it one of our favorites. One is the inclusion of the raised stretching bar on the back supports of the table. Most inversion tables such as the Teeter 560 and Merax models feature a bar that runs along the ground with a curve for holding onto. The raised bar on the iControl however, means you can hold and stretch anywhere along the bar giving a little more diversity when using it for further stretching.
Other nice features to note include the padded 1.5″ foam backrest and the long arm supports that make the table both comfortable and easy to use. The extended handle on the ankle holders is also a great feature that removes the need to strain your back when securing your lower legs into the plastic holders.
Overall this is a very good inversion table for anyone between the heights of 4 ft-10 in to 6 ft-6 in. It is especially good for those who like to adjust their incline angle a lot throughout their inversion therapy sessions as well as for beginners.
While the majority of inversion table reviews are incredibly positive for the Ironman iControl 400, there is a tiny bit of negativity here and there. Although many state this is the best inversion table they have ever owned, others feel the disc brake system could be a little more robust. Provided you are aware of the disc brake being a little fragile you should not encounter any problems, however the durability of it is something that lets the overall design of the table down slightly.
Overall when it comes to the durability and stability of the table there are no complaints and a number of very satisfied 5 star reviewers. As with many inversion tables the instruction could be a bit better, but all in all, this is an inversion table that is highly recommended by many.
