    Duke,
    For PR 5000 V2, I see that some attachments are available for sale individually but not all. Is there a plan to offer the below as add on or attachments

    1. Storage option at different heights

    2. Uprights by themselves.

    3. More colors like White for uprights and attachments in Red etc..

    4. Multi grip pull up bar and flip down safeties

    Yes, we'll be allowing individual parts sales and expanding this lineup significantly the first half of this year. Our focus in the short-term is just getting everyone's orders fulfilled for complete racks, but our production is in the process of ramping up now to handle the demand of individual parts sales in Q2 this year.

    Silicone or Teflon based spray lubricant will both work. These days I tend to use a PTFE ( Teflon based Lubricant on all of my guide rods and seat/pad adjustments, I find I don't have to apply the Teflon lube as often as the Silicone.

    Any more feedback on the AB-5200? Not a ton of reviews out there yet. I want a single bench for flat and incline, and am thinking of pulling the trigger on the 5200. Is the top pad long enough for most (I’m 6’1”) to fit on without hitting the gap at all? That gap is really my only concern with the design, as long as the reviews on quality are still solid.

    I feel your pain. I ended up supplementing my somewhat large Repfitness purchase (including the rack) with Rogue accessories just to avoid waiting for backordered items during the November sale.

    That feel when you have to wait 2 months before your order ships. I know that feel.

    Coming soon. I've only got it fully set up a little over a week ago and still have a bunch of boxes to get rid of. But I've done about 5 workouts so far and it's been pretty awesome.

    The upper pad is 42” long. Should be long enough to avoid the gap. I’m 6’4” and could use it with a few inches to spare.

    I just got an update today that my November order has shipped.

    I'll post about my order when it arrives in case anyone else is looking at ordering a clear coat PR-4000.

    OK, here's a few pics from my haul




    Not shown is the Zero Gap bench which is currently sitting in my living room Overall, very happy with everything. One thing I was pleasantly surprised with was the lat/row machine. It actually works very well, at least for lat and row, movements, or any movement where you are pulling directly down from the top, or directly out/up from the bottom. Note that any sort of rotational movement does not work at all e.g. cable woodchops for obliques.

    Additionally, one thing I'm not completely sold on is the urethane coating on the weight horns. While the black looks awesome, it adds a lot of friction to the horns when pulling/placing weights on the horns. I'm not sure how well the urethane will hold up over the years.

    My favorite items are probably the Deep knurl power bar, and the FB 5000 bench with fat pad. For the price FB 5000 bench is hands down probably the best deal maybe in the whole fitness industry. Seriously, outstanding.

    Closeup of the equalizer plates. Very happy with these. About 3 of the 45s did come with minor shipping damage to the finish, but this is not a big deal. Also, the white lettering on some of the plates is somewhat crude almost like it was done by hand. I'm not sure if this was old stock before MFG process was improved?


    And bad with the good, a couple of the uprights had cosmetic manufacturing defects. The defects are fairly minor, but a bit disappointing especially considering that every unit comes with QA checklist that supposedly passed



    Other than what is shown everything else was pretty much flawless, with only a few minor scratches or marks.

    Note that the zero gap bench also has a manufacturing defect in that the retention pin for the seat does not engage fully when the seat is in the fully extracted position (bench in the 90 degree back position). This is also a pretty minor thing, since you can still tighten the pin to keep the seat stable, and honestly 90 degree back position is not that useful of a position.

    Looks like a great setup. I had some of the same cosmetic damage on my pull up bar and a cross member. They gave me a gift card for it which I promptly used to buy a bench from them.

    @supadude might be worth mentioning the damages/defects to the customer service.. especially if you plan on buying more stuff from rep. Heard you get a 50% refund :P

    That number 3 though...

    Looks great. Does the lat attachment interfere with bench placement at all?

    Looks like a great set-up! I would contact them about the upright damage - that's a little too bad to just let go imo.

    I see so many instances of Rep gear being almost done right. If they get their QC under control I would be more willing to recommend them but for big purchases, this is just another example of why I would suggest Rogue or others first. I love my FB-5000 but it came with chipped powder coating that should have been more than obvious to whoever was inspecting it. Not enough for me to bother sending them an email complaining but just shows a lack of attention to detail. My dad got the same bench and had the same problems as well. Nothing close to Titan but I wouldn't want to be lumped into that category if I was Rep.

    I had the same experience. The sleeve over the pull up bar was undamaged but the pull up bar was. There was a QC note inside the box to make it worse. I noticed that anything with matte powder coat just doesn't stand up to any use. The pins in the J cups are flaking off bit by bit. Having said that, my power rack (PR-5000 v1) is still a tank and well built otherwise.

    Anyone have any luck on getting a discount on a larger order? Right now roque is surprisingly more willing to offer a deal, but rep seems inflexible on pricing - is that the norm?

    I tried it using a nail and hammer. Unfortunately, if you look closely you can see that the bottom part of the three is not cut at all. Attempting to punch it out just bent the hell out of the numbering and made it look like crap. I ended up punching it back into place and its only a little worse than in the picture now.

    For flat bench using the FB 5000 bench, no. I have heard that it does interfere if using the zero gap bench (if you don't remove the foot plate), but I haven't tried this myself. I'll try it out and let you know.

    For inclined bench I'm pretty certain that you would not be able to use the rear uprights.

    Agree somewhat. With QC they way it is right now, you are playing a bit of russian roulette whether or not your items will be defective. That said, my impression is that Rep customer service is top notch and willing to make things right. Also, all things considered, going with Rogue would have probably increased the price by 30-40%. Overall, for the price savings, it's still worth it to me to deal with the chance of defects.

    Also, I'm not completely certain that Rogue doesn't have issue of their own. I have heard that have their own share of quality issues as well.

    I don't think the paint issues are a Rep only issue. I hear the same things for Rogue powder coat. But agree that the powder coat is very easily damaged. Kind of makes me wish I got the clear coat, but I prefer black.
