    And in other news, a BMW is better than a Yugo. I agree that it's a pretty stupid comparison, and the way it's done seems petty. I wonder if he tried to get special treatment from Rogue in the past...

    My ceiling is only 83", and I bought the SML-2. I used an angle grinder with a cutting wheel to cut away 10", then filed away any stray shavings. It wasn't that difficult. I can't use the pullup bar...

    You can buy "mounting feet" for $20/pair. If you want to bolt down the front and back, you apparently need 2 pair.

    So . . . we have a couple of posts about inguinal hernias, one post about herniated discs, and the original post was about a "harnia", which I at first thought was some kind of Indian cuisine. Anyone...

    For me, it's always been a problem hitting the safeties rather than the J-hooks. When I'm racking the bar, I can see what I'm doing and can make sure things are lined up. It's that last inch or so of...

    The only real differences between the two racks are the length of the safety arms (24" vs 20") and the width (49" vs 48"). I went with the SML-2 because of the longer safeties, but there are times...

    Interesting. I haven't followed the Olympias for two decades, and had no idea they'd add a new "physique" division. The last Mrs. Olympia I remember seeing looked like someone had stuck a wig onto...

    Used equipment often sells for 50% of retail--that's typically what I've tried to sell my own stuff on craigslist. A brand new Powerline rack can be bought for $373 off Amazon. Used plates sell for...

    Looks like the Rogue 2.0 bar was the first to use composite bushings, which they released in early July. The majority of their bars still appear to use bronze.

    I had a similar problem when I first started using parallel grip bars. They can be difficult to keep perfectly balanced if you aren't accustomed to using them, as a slight tipping in either direction...

    I owned the GPR378 for 2 years. It's a simple, bare bones rack that is very strong. Some people have problems with its rear cross member--if you rack the bar in the back when doing squats, it can get...

    The tri-grip plates are olympic and the rusty plates appear to be standard, so yes, there's a pretty big difference. What type of bar are you going to be using them for?

    Interesting. I bought an SML-2 in April and the finish appears more or less identical to the items I've gotten from Black Widow. I'm not in manufacturing and don't know much about the powder coating...

    That particular unit was very stable and strong--I used to rack a trap bar on it and load it up to 450 lbs to do shrugs and never worried about it not being strong enough. But 11" does not give you...
