    Rogue Lat bar , anyone own one?

    https://www.roguecanada.ca/rogue-sta...-steel-lat-bar

    Seems like a lot of money ,especially in Canadian currency, but I’ve liked their products so far .
    It’s going to replace the one I presently own on the bottom left . I also want to add a synergy 24” bar, but there backordered for like forever .

    I don't but I'll probably get one eventually. I bought the American Barbell lat bar and am disappointed with the knurled sections. Pretty minimal and affects my grip. I prefer pull ups though and the Rogue bar is expensive so I'm in no hurry to get it.

    I'm going to have a different view then most in that it's a waste in most cases. If you just want it for the look, well it's your money. But if you need knurling like that for something like pulldowns (unless you're a monster and are going over 300 lbs for high reps) then I'd work on your grip. In fact using that bar might make your grip "lazy" if that makes any sense. Same idea as straps on anything except actual heavy DLs, high pulls, cleans...

    I looked at it for a bit, but wound up with a collection of Mag lat bars. I'm glad I went with the Mags over the standard type of lat bar. Much easier to get better lat engagement.

    This is the equipment forum; therefore, the only correct answer is to have both a fat grip pull down bar without knurling, the Rogue bar that's fully knurled, and a standard lat bar that's knurled in some key areas. Mag Grips are also a must. Then you can decide exactly how much grip you want to train, find the perfect angle, and experience the ideal workout - assuming you don't run out of time to lift because you can't decide which attachment to use.

    If you look to the right of the chrome bars you will see the Hog Legs . They are larger in diameter and have zero knurling .
    There designed that way in order to isolate the muscles other than the forearms better , in theory .
    As I mentioned I just like having variety, and found the Rogue interesting, and at a different angle I believe than my present wide bar

    With shipping and tax it’s definitely going to be expensive,but I’m just about ready to push the button .
    I think it’s a strange design where it hooks , as you tighten Allen screws on collars to hold the cable attachment .
    Whatever works I guess

    I was debating to get their newest 3.0 bench while I’m at it, but the bench is 11.25” wide , and I prefer 11.75” to 12” like my new benches . I find my IronMaster is far too narrow after getting used to a wide bench

    I like to buy new stuff just as much as the next guy- but I don't think I would cough up that much money for a lat pulldown bar. Getting a much less expensive bar would perform the same duty and function. But its your money and gym. you should be happy with what you do in your own space.

    You mentioned things backordered. I ordered a TuffStuff leg extension/curl combo back in April. Still not delivered. Vendor says they are still waiting on certain parts for their machines.

    I just about pulled the trigger and ordered the Rogue lat pull down bar , but I’m having mixed feelings about their 3.0 bench ,and want to order them both at the same time .
    Only wish it was a tad wider like my bells of steel . For over 1K for a bench after shipping , it better be perfect imo .

    I couldn't bring myself to spend that much on an FI bench or a lat bar. I would probably be willing to pay for their AB-3 bench because there are so few really good FID benches on the market, but there are a ton of great FI benches on the used market and they're generally $300 USD or less. For the lat bar, between MAG, Prime, all the MAG/Prime knockoffs, the Ironmaster Ultimate row handle, Back Widow, etc. I can think of better ways to spend my money on attachments. Ultimately though, it's your nickel.

    That is a lot for a lat PD bar.
    I would pay premium for a good barbell but lat PD bar is not the same.Here in the states you you could probably get some thing similar for around $80.
    I realize rouge is good quality equipment but some things i personally wouldn't pay that much for.
    I did pay around $140 for a multi grip swiss bar from EliteFTS with angled handles for really eight different grip widths and love it .
    It saved me from getting several different handles.

    The Ironmaster hybrid pad is 12” on one end and 10” on the other. I got it for my new IM bench and really like it. The 12” width is perfect and I like the more narrow 10” at my legs.

    Just pulled the trigger on this bro, (a couple weeks ago). Saw that it pretty much stole the design from REP fitness. Forgot why I decided to go with Rogue. Maybe just the made in US part was enough to push me in that direction.

    I'm fairly certain it's a modernization of a Reflex design. Rogue bought Reflex a year or two back, or they merged somehow. I forget the specifics, but it's not a Rep copy. Rogue nor Rep invented the ladder style bench.

    I’m wondering what your opinion is on this bench is now that you’ve used it?
    I’m not sure about the width ,and was hoping there going to increase its width a bit on the next gen .

    I finally gave in and ordered the Rogue lat pull down bar .
    I also have a synergy 24” bar pre ordered , as it’s one width I don’t own yet , and would like to add it to my collection.

    Was debating to buy their curling and tricep bar also . Kind of unique . Has anyone used them before ?

    All in stock on Amazon. Cost is a little less too. Some look worth trying for sure.

    Thanks. I’m in Canada,so most of it isn’t available,or priced triple. I did find those attachments on Amazon.ca though ,and there priced appropriately.

    But their steel bars are priced ridiculously

    I ended up getting Mag Grips in wide, med sup, and med pro, which feel awesome. I don't think I need the Rogue lat bar anymore, though you never know.

    Hey man, sorry for the delay. Don't get post updates.

    I was worried about this too when looking at the specs, but after using it the width hasn't even crossed my mind. I'd like to think I'm on the wider side as well. I can take a measurement of my back later on or get a video of the bench/me using it.

    The bench is a fkn tank. I still go to Anytime/Local gyms every now and then and didn't realize how poverty most of the benches are.

    I’m not that wide but like to get my shoulder blades on the bench while pressing . Really helps my rotators.
    I’m getting close to ordering it. Ordered the lat bar on sep 4 and haven’t heard a thing ?

    Well I just received my Rogue bar today . I wish I could try it , but I don’t have the right size of Allen wrench to tighten the collars up .
    Sure looks like a quality piece though . I took a pic so you compare the diameter from a typical bar , as it’s a little fatter .

    You can see the angle is a little steeper

    That looks pretty sweet. Now I want to get it just because I like nice gear. I definitely have a problem.
