re: Heads up for those building out gym: Rogue 100" Monster Racks back in stock (4/27, 1:00pm)
Well Rogue has shipped out my rack, except for the bolts which are still in the "prepared/picked" stage.

Can't wait to have a bunch of uprights i can't put together.

re: Heads up for those building out gym: Rogue 100" Monster Racks back in stock (4/27, 1:00pm)
No I have the elitefts R3 pack 2 rack. Mines a little older though and doesn't have band peg holes. Since everything is taken down while we build our new home I plan to buy a mag drill and drill the uprights on each side and also the crossmembers for band pegs.

I do like the fully welded sides of the R3, but at over 2k, the rogue monster is cheaper and nicer. My old neighbor bought one right before moved since he didn't have mine anymore and I personally liked it better than mine. Now I got mine used but like new for ,$500 a few years ago so totally worth it for me.

I also have the elitefts 0-90 bench to match. It's bomb proof and pretty awesome but at 649 it 100 more than the similar rogue 2.0 adjustable and not worth it.

I love all of my equipment and have equipment from elite, rogue, and sorinex. All are pretty bad ass, but sorinex customer service sucks dick in my experience. To the point I do everything I can to avoid dealing with the.

Before I drill out the rack, gonna build the new frame for the sorinex hurricane as I want the pivot point for the handles to be able to move up and down. I plan to essentially build another R3 rack but I will have a bottom member in the back on the ground and then two vertical post that allow the pivot to be adjusted up and down on the rogue monster lite trolleys. Also going to build two bridges to go between the two racks.

my exact rack, but mine is red

my bench, I have red

Sounds great but i'd have to see it.

The Rogue 50 cal trolley looks awesome but it just seems unnecessary.

Then again i'd like to get some ghost strong rolling j-cups and those are overpriced by about 2000%.

I bought the sml-1 squat stand today, figure I'll use it for awhile and maybe upgrade in a few years. Need weights and a bench now.

You use any of the attachments? I see where rogue says they advise against using plate storage and matador type stuff

Congrats man! It’s a great pickup and it’ll get you moving again.

It took Rogue 16 calendar (not work) days to send out my RM-4. 8/10ths of it arrive tomorrow. The rest on Monday.

I also bought the nunchucks so I’ll have yet another pull-up variation. Pull-ups don’t suck so much when you mix them up.

Knurled Socket Pull-up Bar
XM-43 Multigrip Pull-up Bar
Nunchucks

Let’s fricking go!

No hurry for now, I found a place to let me work out in the interim. I figure if one of the power racks that I want comes in stock while I wait for the squat stands, I can just cancel and order the rack.

All I have is the safety spotter arms for it. I thought about modding it with some type of pull up bar but just got the jammer pull-up bar instead.


There is a Reddit link somewhere where someone transforms it into a half rack using other rogue parts though

Well I screwed myself out of the sml 1, I called and waited to cancel it because the sml2 came in stock. When I got off the phone with rogue the sml2 was out of stock and my sml1 order was already cancelled. So back at square one.

Damn that’s bad luck. Racks are selling out within 30 mins.

Called back and got my original order restored. Bird in hand is better than two in the bush...or something like that.

On another note, does anyone know another company that makes 3x3 with 5/8" holes spotter arms?

Titan’s X3 racks are 3x3 with 5/8” holes. Their spotter arms are on backorder until 5/27 though. I would do some research and make sure the holes line up for Rogue’s racks before I ordered them.

I'll look into them, Alan Thrall had some bad experiences with Titan j cups among other things.

Was Rogue still "out of stock" when you re-placed the order? If so, that's cool they let you do it.

Yeah it was still out of stock. They are making them to order so I guess they open up so many orders at a time.

Im waiting for those ghost strength rolling j cups to come back on the market.

It’s totally a luxury expense but whatever.
