    Adjustable DB: I got the 5-100lb set, and they are different sizes. The 10lb plates are not all 10lbs....some 9.8lb and I have one that is 9.6lb on my scale. If you have all the weight on the bar to make it 100lbs, and you look at it on flat ground, there are parts of them that don't touch the ground, like the outer edges of the plats are at a slant. Just a pain in the dik, so I am saving to buy actual DBs.


    Again, I have absolutely no issues with my power rack

    Has anybody tried the Bench pad clone, i understand it wont be as good as The real fat pad but for 67$ and 5% off i could grab it and throw it on my stationary flat bench, i know a few people said they were considering trying it just wanted to see if anybody pulled the trigger.

    1) Sounds like your scale only does 0.2lb increments. Use a food/postage scale.

    2) 9.8lbs is 2% accuracy... You want the plates to be calibrated or something? You expect fixed dumbbell sets are more accurate than +/- 2%? Because if that's what you expect, you'll be pretty disappointed when you drop several grand and find out that they aren't 100% accurate either.

    agree with this I"d probably be happy with that accuracy at those prices.

    This is gonna sound dumb but loosen the nuts and bolts of your bench put it in the spot where you are gonna use it to flat bench and tighten all of them back up. if your floor is uneven it may allow you to tighten the legs up in a place where the bench isn't level but may act like it is on your floor.

    Yes. Never weigh your dumbbells. You will be disappointed. Lol. I weighed both my Powerblocks (u90s) and Ironmasters and was like.. ugh. Wish I wouldn't have done that. Lol. (both were a bit lighter than stated, but at least equal to each other as far as right and left)

    Not that it matters, but I'm curious--what kind of scale did you use?
    I assume all scales have certain level of accuracy, and in particular, consumer bathroom scales seem to be inconsistent when measuring oddly shaped objects.

    This thing seems like it would be quite accurate. I used to have a similar device for measuring traveling luggage load, but I can't find it.

    WOW. Is that overpriced at $82.50. Sure it goes up to 300Kg, but who needs to weigh anything like that in a gym?

    I bought a luggage scale / fishing scale for about $5 from Amazon. It only goes to about 95 lbs, but that is enough to weigh almost all weights and DBs in a gym. It must be fairly accurate, or every weight in my gym is off.

    Yeah, I would never pay $82.50 to weigh my weights. It'd be pointless anyway as I don't have an accurate calibrated weight set anyway.
    I didn't know they were only $5 on Amazon though. I might buy one too at that price.

    Ooh nice. I kinda want one of those scales. Do they need to be calibrated?

    the guy i bought it from gave me weights that are supposedly for that purpose and most of them have a calibration knob. You just need something that has a known weight. When I was looking for one, there were quite a few on CL.

    Products I have from Titan

    I have:
    T-3 Power rack 36" Deep
    Flip Down side safeties
    Adjustable monolift arms
    Spotter arms
    T-3 Y dip bar
    50lb weight vest
    5-100lb adjustable dumbbells
    Adjustable Incline Bench
    25lb bumper plates (pair)
    Power drag sled




    and my only issues were the adjustable dumbbells and the adjustable incline bench. I love everything else. I haven't used the monolift in about 2 months. Same with the Dip bar, so I somewhat wish I didn't buy those two products. Not because they suck, but because I don't use them as much as I thought I would. I would recommend all of the above (aside from the two I said I had issue with) to everyone. The rack, bench and dumbbells were one of the first products I bought from Titan, and I continue to buy from them because I enjoy their products and the prices they are. Looking to add some more to my gym, too.

    Such as:
    24" or 36" T-3 extension....can't decide which I want
    Bumper plates (Probably four 45s and two of every other weight)
    Multigrip barbell (football bar/swiss bar)
    Multi grip pull up attachment for the T-3 rack (does it have knurling?)
    Hex Bar/Trap Bar
    Heavy chains
    3-in-1 Plyo box 20" 24" 30" (maybe smaller so I can use it for box squats too)
    SSB (Not sure about this one yet)

    Titan added T3 and X2 Step up platforms which I am guessing on the rack you can make it any height you want correct? How safe would this be compared to what I posted in another thread about just using a bench for jump box? With the step platform the thing I notice right away is there isnt much clearance between the platform and the rack so if you misjudger you might be falling face first right into the rack itself and sustain some untold injury. I would think with a bench you could bail out safely even if you miss or over shoot the mark.

    Please post the pros and cons of these rack mounted plyo platforms. Thanks.

    No one said you were dissing titan (plenty of folks do, plenty love them). But to expect greater than +/- 2% accuracy on any plate that isn't a bumper or calibrated is absurd. Seriously. Weigh some Ivanko or GP dumbbells - they'll have variance. 2% is generally the smallest variance before you get to calibrated plates. 10% would be a whole different story, but literally 0.2lb variance a plate is a non-issue.

    Anybody got reviews, or personal experience with the Titan X2 Short Series Power Rack? I'm getting one for my bday from the wifey, and it's going in an apartment garage (attached). Most weight I'll put on for a while is 405 for squats. Any input would be appreciated.

    I use the Accuteck ShipPro postal scale that works up to 110 lbs.. supposedly accurate to 0.1 oz.

    http://a.co/cCqeilA

    My Ironmasters weighed 53 lbs 10 oz each loaded @ 55 lbs
    My Powerblocks weighed 53 lbs 9 oz and 53 lbs 7 oz loaded @ 55 lbs

    HOWEVER, I am questioning the accuracy of the scale now since I'm thinking about it and both above sets /\ were very similar (low) in weight. I wonder if moving the scale may cause issues. From now on, when I measure, I will make sure it is spot on with a weight that I know before measuring something I'm unsure about. My bad on that. Still learning.. Ha.

    If its an apartment garage I assume your not bolting to the floor. are you planning on building some sort of platform?

    Its new we haven't seen any reviews of that rack come in yet.

    I have the regular height one on the way (freebie I won on from their Facebook giveaway). Rack is so new I dont know of anyone that has it in their hands yet.

    A few pieces of mine came in last night & I gotta say, I know Titan gets some hate due to ugly welds/build quality on some pieces...but I was really impressed with what I saw so far. I received the extension & accessory box yesterday (2 uprights, weight holders, extensions w/ logo, j-cups etc) & the packaging was improved, the finish was nice, welds were pretty clean & nowhere near as sloppy as I have seen on some of their other stuff & everything seemed pretty straight. Hopefully the rest gets to my house today & I can get it assembled.

    Nice, that's good to hear. PICS! Ha. Congrats on the win, by the way. That's pretty awesome. As much as I and others bash on Titan, I will say they seem to really listen to customer feedback/complaints and address them and make changes Quickly.

    Correct, I am not bolting to the floor, although I could. My garage isn't considered living space so they can't dock me for any damages in there, but I don't think I'll need to. I was planning on getting some floor mats to encompass the whole rack. Do you think that'll suffice? I'm researching all I can for this I eventually want to just get all my workouts in at home.

    That is awesome and good to hear so far, thank you for the input. How new is it? I was really looking at the T2, but due to limited spacing the X2 seems my best bet. I would like something to just last me a lifetime really, and I emailed titan about the X2, it really seems legit, but again no reviews yet. Please keep us updated on it man, and congrats on winning a freebie that's sick dude.

The x2 is fairly light at just 225lbs and may walk around a bit on racking of heavy squats if its not bolted down and you don't have enough weight on the weight posts. any rack can and will do this over time if its not bolted down. I have the t3 and its bolted down and never moves at all I really like my rack.

    Ah man I'm glad you mentioned that I never thought of using plywood. I just might to that so I can bolt it down. Is the legs spreading apart an issue if I don't bolt it down though you feel? Like I said I want this rack to last me a longtime.

    It seems like they're coming out with so many different products.
    Excited to see what they come out with next before I move abroad, so I can get as much stuff as I need from them while I still can.

    I'm really happy with all of their equipment so far.
    While it's not aesthetically pleasing, it gets the job done at a low price.
    Even for something a bit more complicated, like the monolift, as long as they're cloning a good design with the same material, the functionality is no different.
