    Landmine handle recommendations?

    Guys and gals, I’m working on my birthday list for the wife and family (yay for being a spoiled middle-aged man) and I’ve thought to add a two-handed parallel Landmine handle to the list. I can do them just fine using the bar alone, of course, and I also currently just slide my cable double D handle underneath the bar and make that work, but... I need to put something on the list, and this isn’t enough of an upgrade that I’m likely to buy it myself in the meanwhile. ;P

    (I say that now....)

    Anyway, looking at the European options I think that ATX once again looks like my best bet.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m always happy with Rogue gear, but their offering seems a bit bulkier:

    Any particular reason, in your view, why I should favor the Rogue option? I’m not seeing it - looks like unnecessary excess steel.

    The ATX one looks fine. Consider getting something like this, then you can use any attachment.

    OP...be very careful. These attachments may scratch your barbell.

    That’s a really good idea, actually. And it would potentially enable a little greater range of motion without hitting myself in the chest with the plates.

    I just recently got a little $35 landmine attachment on amazon. Installed it under my dumbbell rack, and was pleased to find that my good old $20 pulldown v grip handle fits under my crappy "beater" barbell super solid and allows for a nice symmetrical row. I'm really enjoying these rows. If you have a v grip handle laying around give it a shot, otherwise try to buy the most basic one and you'll likely be pleased with the result.

    This. I use something very similar but mine was sold as a "chain holder" and did not come with a chain. I had to supply my own but it works with any of my cable machine attachments

    That’s actually what I’ve been doing. But it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like to get another attachment. ;P

    I had bought the Titan attachment that was like the Rogue piece you linked and I didn't care for it. Maybe having the handle further back from the weight changed the way the movement felt IDK. Ended up selling it. I made an attachment like Eric posted and do like using different handles with it.

    I got me the Linebacker Squat landmine attachment from Titan:

    https://www.titan.fitness/strength/s.../400781.2.html

    combined with the landmine stand also from Titan:

    https://www.titan.fitness/strength/s.../400641.2.html

    and at the risk of sounding like a Titan Fitness commercial, I also got Titan's viking press handle

    https://www.titan.fitness/strength/s...ap/400304.html

    for T-bar rows, I use the T-bar row handle from New York Barbells:

    http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/9136.html

    while I love NYB, I can't really recommend that handle with a straight face. It does the job, but I can't help but think I could've gotten one of similar quality for cheaper off Amazon.
