    This. There are too many design types of each to pick a "winner" overall. It depends on the rack you are using it on. To me strap safeties on a 1" spaced rack is just ridiculous, but on a 4" spaced...

    I agree and disagree. I read a thread on another site today where the OP was searching for a bar. They were weighing the ups and downs of a fringesport bar, vulcan bar, and 4 other brand names....

    Both bars are made by Capp's. Visually they are virtually identical with the exception of end caps. The Troy bar is made from MIN 150KPSI round bar steel (likely ETD 150) and the real one is 186KPSI....

    Will you ever post some damn pics of your gear? I know for a fact you have all kinds of great stuff and it drives me nuts.

    I just setup my SML-1 a few days ago. It's ok I guess. If you are stuck with that height you don't have a lot of options.

    Not even close Sir. That bar is a typical cheap import bar. The sleeves are held on with hex bolts and the 30mm diameter to give it a 1000lb rating means the steel is of low quality. The shipping...

    I like bare steel also. When did Rogue switch to vinyl bushings?

    In my experience it was a bit of a dust collector because I didn't like the design (short arm), welding (half welded- pet peeve)and how it was put together (crooked). It did work, but was still a...

    Ugh... Just about back in the home game after a move. Spent the last 3 months at a commercial (I set them up with some plates and Dumbbells and got a membership kicked in as a bonus to hold me over)....

    I just roll the first (inner) plate onto a flat 5lb plate to raise it up a bit and load them on or off. I had a rogue mini DL jack but didn't use it that much.

    Cap OB86B. Why bumpers? Just curious.

    Congrats on the BJJ. My two boys are right into it and I'm about to make a return to the mats myself. Just finished setting up their basement battle zone.

    Which is exactly what I said... yet some people struggle with it. Just like some people struggle with reading comprehension.

    York does still offer sets that are not included on the website or catalog that do not have 35 or have multiples of other plates. I don't have the factory price sheet here, but I've called about them...

    Looking at the solid base on the uprights I would agree. Those two pieces likely weigh more than many racks alone. I doubt they used a thin gauge (I don't think you could without destroying it) of...

    I wouldn't get to caught up on spacing. Racks with a million holes still only have a few ever used. If you luck out the holes work out as is... at least a few will be fine. If they don't there are...

    Not sure but looks good. I wouldn't want to try to get it into a basement though.

    How thick are those mats? If they 1 1/4"+ you'll be able to sell those to MMA/Jiu Jitsu guys easily. I just paid over $200 for 100sqft of it, and that was the best deal I could find.

    I was at XTC today to pick up some commercial flooring for my new home gym. I hung around for 2 hours talking shop, checking the new stuff out, and subtly providing some feedback. That Econ rack is...

    Thanks man, not sure I'm guru but certainly a nerd.

    I had the DL bar for awhile. Honestly, I wouldn't get one if I were you. It is a very flexible bar with a 27mm grip suitable for 1-3RM work. I...
