    Rep Fitness is another company to take a look at. Rogue is generally better, but Rep is getting a lot of good press and wouldn't be a bad way to start.
    If you like very nice things, i dont think an R4 will be a grail rack whether you choose to add to it or not. Its great for a home gym but its not commercial quality. I dont even believe the RML series is really commercial. I think if want a rack that you're not likely to want to upgrade to then get a monster rack or something along those lines. I bought an RML and less than a year later upgraded to a monster rack. I love it but if i had known about dynmamic fitness i would have gotten that ...makes sorinex rogue look like cheap racks...and still has 2 inch spacing which is quite rare for the very heavy racks

The sorinex rogue etc designs are lazy and cutting costs...By the way I i have a rogue monster rack but I added a lower crossmmeber and have several very large optional crossmembers, bolted and have 1200 lbs loaded onto rack. Some of the racks without the lower cross are incredibly weak laterally. I really do wish rogue would build an option lower crossmember asssembly with bracing like the hammer racks ...

    It's been quite a while since I've last posted, so bear with me!

    I have an older Magnum open rack that has bare J hooks that I'd like to have protection for my barbell knurling (UHMW? truck bed liner?). Anyone have these type of racks and have a suitable solution? Or perhaps new J hook recommendations?

    You can buy UHMW tape on Amazon. It's not very thick, but it's also not very expensive either. Might give that a shot. For new jhooks, just find a manufacturer that makes racks with the same specs as yours and they'll sell jhooks that should work.

    I'm pretty sure what used to be Magnum, is now matrix. Maybe they have a little more moder j hooks that will work for your rack?

    They have some very nice newer style jhooks. They’re also close to $300.
    Is your rack 3x3 or 4x3
    I have the 4x3 multi rack and the 3x3 1/2 rack.on the 1/2 rack I found some used Legend jhooks for $50 and cut the 1” pin so it would fit on the 3x3 drop in upright.
    If you have 4x3 you’re stuck with an expensive option or get someone to make ya a pair.

    Sold the Magnum rack, so no need to worry about the J hooks LOL!

    Bought a Titan X-3 squat stand to put on my deadlift platform, mostly to have a secondary rack so the wife can work out with/around me. Then a Rouge HR-2 popped up on CL last week, so bought that this weekend and will go on the platform instead. Now I gotta offload the X-3 to free up cash for the eventual full rack I intend to buy.

    Top 5 Weight Rack Manufacturers

    Hey
    Looking to set up my home gym and I’m looking for some recommendations for a rack.
    I looked at Rogue and REP are there any others out there.
    Prefer to keep it under $1500 for the rack only
    Thanks for any help.

    Have you looked on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace? You can find commercial grade racks for low money. I grabbed a Hammer Strength Halfrack with docking bench for $900. If you want new, Rep is good quality stuff.

    I am not sure i would buy a rack in the current used market as the prices inflated way too much. If you want to buy a rack immediately i would look for a new one.

    Can anyone tell me who built this rack? I have searched the internet for days. I am trying to find one just like it or very similar. I am wanting to upgrade my residential rack to a commercial grade open top rack that is less than 85" tall.

    Last time I checked these were no longer made, but apparently MDUSA has them on their site again! Pendlay Elite Half Rack, the sexiest looking half rack on the market! (yes, slightly biased)

    I never realized how deep that rack is:


    footprint is 67" wide, 64" deep


    It is a sweet looking rack though.

    It's an optical illusion, the 'wide' portion is from the ends of the weight horns and the depth from the front feet. When you take the spotter arms off it's incredible how much smaller it looks in person. I'm just glad they are still making them, would love to have a shiny new one some day (long from now), fresh from the factory to go with my Mech mono's.

    Last time I looked at MDUSA's website it was intact but you can't order anything. My guess it was left up when they closed the doors.

    No kidding? You can put things in the cart and checkout, wonder at what point it stops you from ordering?

    That's a bummer, thought maybe someone resurrected their stuff.

    I upgraded from a cheap 14 gauge rack to this much heavier rack. It was expensive but I am very happy with it. Does anyone know who built it?

    SAWEET! Pro Elite rack (3/4 or Open Top), refurbished and sold one of those this past year. Absolute beast, one of the most stable racks you will ever find.

    Awesome. I plan to keep it forever. Do you know where I can find the plastic strips that go on the spotter arms?

    I'd buy some UHMW strips from McMaster Carr, that's what I did to refurbish the j-hooks on those. Extreme double sided tape and you're all set.

    Edit: I was REALLY torn on keeping that rack, but it came down to my Mech6 mono's and I couldn't give them up. Congrats, its a keeper!

    Thanks, I will check out McMaster Carr. Is there a thickness that I should look for?

    I glued some leather to the J-hooks but I do not think it is going to last very long.

    I didn't know what to buy either, especially for the J-hooks so I bought sheets of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 to have on hand for future projects. Ended up using either the 1/8 or 1/4 on the J-hooks, but I'm not quite sure.

    Not sure if anyone posted this, but seems like a fairly decent 'brand name' option readily available. Not as safe as a full/half rack, but given you only need to lift 75% of your normal weight to maintain muscle mass its a temporary option. Pull up a bench, leave the clamps off on case you have to dump the weight, go light and stay safe. Sorinex Off-Grid Rack, $349.

    Love their statement about using their profits for a relief fund, too. Good on them.

    Personally I think the Sorinex design looks like garbage for the price, but I guess the sawtooth design can hold a lot of grocery bags.

    Or maybe double as a barbell holder for when racks are back in stock, the Rogue would become useless shortly thereafter.
