    All of Titan's 3'x3' stuff is actually 75mm. I would presume REP's is the same since both are made in CN where they use metric.

    No bottom hole on the Mono was expanded so that they can used on the Rogue racks as well. That hole/pin used to keep the Mono in place .

    Rack holes were not touched. No PR5000 holes are not smaller than Rogue . Actually they are tad bigger than 1 1/16" . It is actually alignment of the holes on the rack . I think it is where holes start on the bottom on PR-5000 . They are actually 2" apart .

    I am actually happy with the uprights. I actually have bottom crossmember as well . So in case in future hopefully soon , if i have to keep one rack then i can expand this to 6 post rack. The current bottom CM will go as a top CM on the storage section.

    Oh I see what you're saying, adjusting for hole spacing. The metric specs of the PR-5000 makes everything seem strangely off.

    Guess Rep caved to the free shipping. I can't be bothered to check prices before and after but they were already getting too expensive for what you got so if they don't go up too much it puts Rep a little more in the value group.

    Getting multiple plates is more than before. Ex. For Rep Urethane equalizers, 45s last year were $220 + shipping, this year it was $234.99 + shipping, now it’s $279.99 shipped free. Maybe a little cheaper if only getting a pair but not if you’re getting multiple pairs (freight was $150-200 to SoCal previously for a large plate order when I was looking earlier this year).

    Shane responded later saying they are working on bigger plate packages which may help some, but some of those packages may include plates you don’t want (ex. 35s lol) or the quantities you want.

    Benches look a little cheaper overall than when I bought them a few years ago.

    Rep is no stranger to shipping rate troubles. The topic came up around page 22-23 of this thread and again when they dropped their monolift attachments and passed on the freight cost to the early buyers.

    I’ve had a PR-5000v2 in my cart many times now. This time there were more accessories available so I can’t exactly compare against how I optioned it in the past. A few people on Instagram are posting that the total price went up compared to purchasing with freight costs calculated at checkout.

    Then there are the local customers who now have to pay a premium. The local pickup discount often doesn’t discount enough to offset their recent price hikes.

    It also doesn’t help that REP has a video on their site bashing “free shipping”

    I swear, it's like Rep doesn't know how to get out of their own way. So many unforced errors.

    Seen a number of products went up in price beyond what they cost before plus shipping, some, like benches, look to be a little cheaper. Probably going to go ahead and say this likely hurts the consumer but I won't buy anything from Rep again so oh well. I still like my PowerSpeed bar but that was about the only thing I didn't have some complaint with.

    There’s a stainless PowerSpeed bar that popped up locally for $300, but the knurling on my OBX-20kg was already flattened by the previous owners’ rack hooks. I didn’t even know stainless was an option on the PowerSpeed bar.

    I still want to upgrade from a half rack to a six post rack.. but at this point I’m leaning towards cruising local classifieds looking for someone dumping their COVID purchase to go back to a box gym.

    I don't see how raising prices hurts consumers. If consumers don't like it, they can shop elsewhere. Consumers aren't entitled to low prices or low shipping rates. It's not like Rep is being deceptive. If anything they are hurting themselves because sales may suffer and they appear hypocritical.

    You don't see how raising prices hurts consumers? lolwut?

    Yeah they can shop elsewhere, that's always an option. My point was this move by Rep likely makes things more expensive than it was before with no added benefit. Of course consumers aren't "entitled" to anything but if Rep wants consumers then they need a value proposition. It used to be higher quality equipment than Titan at prices cheaper than Rogue. Now it's, uhhh, I don't really know because for a lot of items the quality is on par with Titan at more expensive prices. The innovation is garbage, I give them credit for trying but almost every unique item they've released has had glaringly obvious flaws.

    There's actually a benefit, I've buying and selling equipment for many years now, this will increase their resale value, so it's not a total loss if you buy REP now. It's not a major bump up, but it's something, and now values will only go up, people never would factor in tax and shipping into resale values, so when it's packaged into the prices, it's always better for resale value.

    Been saying this for years now, they simply can't get out of their own way. Been waiting 6 months for the lat pull attachment to be out, every month, the answer is one more month, these sort of delays and product fails leave a real bad taste in the mouth of the consumer.

    Their attempt at a belt squat was an epic fail as well.

    This is exactly how I used to view Rep. An in between of Titan and Rogue but they do seem to be out of stock quite often and they remain out of stock for a long long time where my desire to buy whatever it is tends to go away.

    I've had no problems with my Titan products and really no problems with Rep products neither. I havent price compared since a number of years ago when I bought the original rep fitness excalibur bar but my perception is theyre much more expensive than they were and I still feel like they're the in between company.

    Everything i've gotten from Rogue has been flawless, customer service has always been top notch...I find myself just wanting to go with the sure thing even if slightly more expensive.

    I bought a leg extension from Legend and had major shipping issues. I've bought a lot from Kabuki and EVERY TIME i get something from kabuki there is an issue whether its a lengthy shipping delay or the product shouldn't have passed QC. Plus they're charging a premium, the product is a premium but the logistics of getting it to you may be the worst of all companies.

    Only bought a few things from Vulcan and they all seemed poorly made and cheap but this was maybe 6-7 years ago since I've bought from them, I'm sure they've improved.

    Exactly, add that one and the mono fail with passing on the freight charges to the customer,just when you think they're going in the right direction, they take many steps back.

    I really like the way it feels, and I like the shorter knurl for the J-cups.

    Excited to put the bar to good use. ZERO sleeve slop, so it's nice to see they fixed that issue.
    The knurling looks good, nice!

    I figured I'd ask here since I haven't had any luck elsewhere:

    I'm looking for a powerspeed bar (preferably in stainless steel), and they've unfortunately been discontinued. I reached out to REP and was told they didn't have one, and haven't had any luck on the secondary market either.

    If anyone here is thinking of selling theirs, please reach out to me.

    If this is against the rules, sorry mods. Will delete.

    Good luck! It's a great bar. Iron Grip makes one that's similar and appears to be available for purchase: https://www.powerliftusa.com/store/b...fting-bar-ob-7

    It's expensive and not stainless, but I believe other forum members have spoken highly of it.

    Don't let the chrome finish fool you, that IG barbell is awesome! They just aren't very common compared to other barbells, but I've seen them in a commercial gym environment and they seem to hold up very well.

    I am actually happy with the uprights. I actually have bottom crossmember as well . So in case in future hopefully soon , if i have to keep one rack then i can expand this to 6 post rack. The current bottom CM will go as a top CM on the storage section.

    I’m confused. The rep uprights are not true 3 x 3, so any rogue attachments will be a tad loose right?

    What about the holes? You said they are slightly larger but what’s the issue with the spacing. Rep is 2” right? Is t rogue also 2” spacing”?

    Metric spacing usually means attachments that require 2 holes, the 2nd hole will be off just a little bit.

    50mm spacing, not 2".

    So then rogue attachments that require 2 hitch pins are not compatible ?

    And why would rep go with a 93” tall rack? Lol. FML if I want the lat attachment it’s a tad too,high for my basement.

    So it’s 80”Metallica rack with lat, or 93” without.

    So engineer/fab guys… if I buy the 93” rep,rack,I,can cut it down to 90” but the lat attachment rods have a threaded nut at each end. How hard would it be to cut the rods,down and weld the nuts in?

    Any idea of when/if Rep is going to come out with a weight stack for their lat pulldown system?

    I asked a while ago, didn't seem like anything was firm. I don't see it as being tough as far as a retrofit add on, seems like something they should explore.

    I’m wondering when they’ll come out with a utility step/seat for racks like rogue and sorinex. I’ve seen a prototype in one of their videos.
