This pulley system came out the same time I was purchasing my rack and, at the time, it was $69 for the full set. Definitely worth a shot.. Well worth it in fact.
The first thing I noticed pulling it out of the box is that it really seems like it was made apart from the rest of Titans racks and accessories. The welds and powder coat finish are MUCH better that anything else I've gotten from Titan. I'm talking ROGUE quality welds and finish (a true matte powder coat) to the point it looks out of place on the shiny, splotchy "powder coat" that comes on all other Titan products. I really am convinced this didn't come from China. Looks American made to me. It also came with a different style bolt than the standard bronze coated (gold finish) bolts that has come with everything else I've bought. Further evidence that I don't think it came from China.
--HIGH QUALITY. Akin to ROGUE on this point. VERY impressed.
--Good design that allows for many more workout options
--...did I mention the outstanding quality? :)
--You really can only load the plate holder with 25lb and smaller Olympic size plates (35s can bang off your base crossbar if not extremely careful). This could be fixed with a change in design making the main pulley longer to more center the weight stack.
--Stringing the cable can be a bother since it easily with fall out while changing configurations
--Came with too small a carabiner for the plate pin. It is awkward to clip and always gets bound up.
In conclusion, there might be a case for a 4 star review here but I'm so impressed by the quality and price, its 5 stars easily for me. Now I may have got an early batch made here in the US; potentially explaining why it was such a good quality piece. Here's to hoping they keep the quality control. Good thing about Titan is that they seem to improve quality over time and keep they're pricing excellent.
I previously had an add on system that was a upgraded version of the "potato" brand pulley system. It worked adequately and I was satisfied. Once I ordered my T3 rack I saw the add on pulley system, at the cost I thought why not. Well I am very impressed with this accessory- its heavy duty and functions very smoothly. As others have said, you can use your imagination when setting it up. I really appreciate having Titan fitness as an option for fitness purchases, great gear for excellent pricing! Keep it up Titan and you'll continue to get my $$.
Prior to having this I had a DIY setup which worked but was awkward and had tons of drag. This system by Titan is butter smooth and feels like using a gym machine. For the price this can't be beat when looking for a home gym lat/row setup.
This system is honestly fantastic. I installed on my T3 short and therefore adjusted the layout of the arms to reduce some of the slack. Just as the prior reviewer mentioned, you can install this however you’d like; it doesn’t need to be exactly as pictured. I am having no issues with weight getting caught in the rack as it’s rasied with the pulley - the long extension arm is just long enough to avoid that issue. The cables are also coated in nylon(?) rather than just being metal, which makes it super smooth and hopefully will increase durability. I’m honestly super impressed with Titan. Fraction of the cost of the bigger name but everything I have purchased has been nothing short of quality.
Don't be fooled by the layout or the awkwardness of having a pull system inside of your rack. You can modify the direction of the hardware to suit your needs. The pulley system, cables and included hardware are all fantastic. Before having this, I had a DIY system that was "good enough". This pulley system is great. In typical Titan Fitness fashion, it's also priced incredibly well. Love the stuff!
Now release the 10" extension for the T3's!!!
