Rogue Power Rack Guide

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.

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.

Each cages below has the following same features:

  • West Side Hole Pattern =1” through bench and clean pull zone, then 2” spacing above and below.

3. Rogue Monster Light Series - For Pro Lifters

These models come with 3” x 3” 11 gauge steel upright dimension making it an ultra durable and robust construction. Hence, these racks are a perfect choice for even extreme usage. I recommend them for advanced lifters for whom durability is crucial.
