Last Updated on the August 27, 2020

Rogue power racks are the top quality gym equipment that is famous for perfect training experience and durability for a lifetime. They are suitable for all sorts of strength training from powerlifting to Crossfit, so commercial gyms have these cages as well. Actually, I have never seen a negative comment about them.

If you want to get one for your gym, Rogue has various power racks depending on your budget and the level of workout. You can choose from racks from different product lines.

Here I would like to give you some help to find the most suitable one for you. I provide an overview of the various product categories, compare the units based on critical features, and also share a short review on each rack.

I hope this guide will help you find the best Rogue power rack for you. If not, you can still check out other power racks for home gym here.

Rogue Power Racks Based on Series

1. Rogue Echo Rack Series – For people on a budget

It is a fact that Rogue cages are not cheap. If you are on a budget, Echo units are for you. Even if they are inexpensive, they offer excellent user experience will do for most of the people.

They are made from 2” x 2” 11 gauge steel, and fewer accessories are available compared to other models. They are not for powerlifters, but for at home strength training Echo series are excellent options.

Keep in mind that, that both must be bolted to the floor for stability and durability.

PRODUCT DETAILS  
RE-3
  • Footprint: 53″ x 32″
  • Depth & Width: 28″/47″
  • Height: 90 3/8″
  • Steel notes: 2×2″ 11 gauge
  • Hole pattern: 2″ Through bench/squat, 6″ elsewhere
  • Weight: 160 lb
RE-4
  • Footprint: 52″ x 52″
  • Depth & Width: 47″/47″
  • Height: 90 3/8″
  • Steel notes: 2×2″ 11 gauge
  • Hole pattern: 2″ Through bench/squat, 6″ elsewhere
  • Weight: 190 lb

As you see the difference between the two is the inner workout area and with that the footprint. The width is the same, but RE-4 has a 47 inches depth which provides a more space to work out. If you are lack of space, you may want the RE-3. Otherwise, RE-4 is a better buy and costs just a little bit more.


2. R-Series – Best price/value ratio

These are the most popular Rogue fitness power racks, and I believe they are the best price/value cages. They are also very versatile since a lot of accessories are available as well both for working out (infinity products such as Rogue Matador, Vertical Bar Hanger, Multi-Grip Crossmember)  and installation.

The uprights are made from 2” x 3” 11 gauge steel, so more robust than Echo. Hence, they are suitable for serious weight lifting.
