O.k, I read on here that some people don't rate incline bench as a good upper chest exercise. So what do you guys use for adding mass to this bodypart?

dumbbells i think he means
for incline i prefer using the barbell, just a personal choice. i don't know if this has any scientific basis but i believe that barbell is better for adding mass (which is what i'm trying to do to my chest). one of the reasons for this is because you are almost always able to do more weight with a barbell than you can with dumbbells. of course i would advise mixing it up.
as far as effectiveness, i have always been taught that incline is necessary for upper chest development, i can't really think of any other exercise that causes the pec's to contract in that fashion. of course there are things such as incline cable crossovers and what not, but from what i understand these will do little to add mass to the chest
