    810XLT is in stock though, I bought one at an auction site once because I was curious (before it was 'Amazon's Choice'). It's a solid rack where it counts, it's the bare minimum beginner rack that I'd recommend if you are simply looking for the cheapest thing possible. J-cups suck so you will want to swat those out ASAP, the price was just $250 yesterday but it's been as low as around $150-$199 I believe. Step up would be Titan which is definitely a more long term solution.

    Would you say the new Powerline PPR1000 is an upgrade that’s worth it? At its price point Im not sure it’s worth it over any Titan racks, although I’ve seen a lot of love and hate for their stuff. I may also consider waiting for a T3 to come back in stock, but Im also not interested in bolting any rack down.

    At only 168 lbs, it's going to bounce around if you don't either bolt it down or add weight storage to weight it down. You can always bolt it down to a plywood platform if you don't want to bolt it into the floor, though that's no longer a cheap option with the insane increases in the price of wood.

    Good point. For where I want to put it I need about 90” of clearance so a platform wouldn’t work.

    I didn't want to bolt down either. Which is why I decided to go with a 6 post. The extra cost is basically offset by the fact you don't need separate weight storage.

    The problem with the lightweight starter racks, or at least the 1 I had, is that they tend to scoot away when you are trying to re-rack from something heavy, such as a squat. You can wedge them against a wall with lumber or bumper plates or something, or build a brace and bolt that to the studs--just get creative. It'll get you going until you see if you will stick with it and raise the budget for a better 1.

    It's not a major problem and could be fixed with $50 if it really bothered you (see below), or rack the weight gently which costs nothing. The target market for these racks will probably never squat more than 300lbs anyway, but I've seen videos of guys on social media squatting 500lbs+ on these Fitness Reality racks. People here are just crazy

    Got them today. There are plenty of reviews out on Youtube now, but I'll say that they seem pretty nicely constructed. Never used Mag Grips so I can't compare how they feel. I do think that the pairs of small and medium attachments are close enough to each other in design that I might only keep one of each and sell the others, but I'll try them all out for a while.

    I tried to save money by getting a cheap squat rack from Walmart. Terrible decision. It's one with two separate racks and is super wobbly and will start to topple over if you place it down any way besides the direct center of gravity.

    Just put mine together today. Cost $299 and arrived in two days. I was going to get the lat extension also but decided not to once I found out how easy and cheap I could make a cable pulley system.

    The rack was super easy to put together and it's fairly sturdy without any weights on it. Pretty happy with it so far.

    I've seen a TON of these for sale locally on FB Marketplace. Should accept Titan's T2 series attachments, so in the future you could add some cool accessories. But I'd still recommend at least upgrading to these j-cups on day one....

    Roller j-cups are available too....

    I pulled the trigger on the Everyday Essentials cable attachments, for $130ish shipped it's impossible to beat. I've noticed more popping in my left shoulder when doing pulldowns with a straight bar, but when I use a neutral grip I have no issues. My kids are starting to workout with me more so even the slightly smaller medium sized one might come in handy depending on their preference. We'll see how it goes, are they holding up well?

    Still in stock as of right now.....

    I actually had the opposite problem and found that the neutral grips were aggravating things no matter which width I was trying. I got rid of them and went back to a straight bar and no more issues. The attachments themselves were nice enough, just didn't work out for me. In your case it sounds like they're definitely worth a shot. If some of the more pronated grips start coming in as reasonably priced knockoffs I'll probably try them.

    I'm still using these and they're holding up fine. I sold the widest one, so my net cost for the rest of the set is about $42. My shoulder impingement issues seems to be kept at bay best with neutral to 15-20 degrees.

    I bought the med pro and sup mag handles last summer and have lived them. How do the knockoffs compare? Are they the same dipped rubber finish?

    Never used real Mag Grips, unfortunately. I haven't gotten very deep into cable attachments, despite having 2 pulley towers, a lat pulldown, and now a Powertec levergym.
