I own a gym and buy commercial grade equipment for my business. I got this rack for my home set up and it rocks. I haven't seen anything on the market of this quality for this price.
I've been around a lot of power racks (e.g. Rogue, XMark, you name it). This one takes the cake. It's going to give you years of reliable service, at a fraction of the cost.
This rack is super sturdy, as it should be with its 3x3 11ga frame. The finish is pretty good and thick, though there were several very small chips in the finish when received, this is unnoticeable and generally expected when shipping such a large and heavy item. In case you were worried about a freight truck dropping this off in your residential area don't be, I received this item via FedEx in several boxes so no worries there. This rack is the perfect height for anyone under ~5'9" any taller and you may need to bend the legs when using pull-up bars. This will be the last rack I will ever need to buy, highly recommended!
I've been using power racks for 10 years now, and squatted in everything from the huge Legend Fitness Collegiate levels, to the cheaply made body solid and everything in between. Personally, I've owned the Rogue R-6 and Rogue SML-1.
I purchased this because we moved to a house where the basement height was 89 inches. I sold my SML-1 (on craigslist) and replaced with the X-3 because I would get a fully functioning heavy-duty power rack for the same price.
It was delivered within 3 days of purchasing in 3 large HEAVY FedEx boxes. Unboxing took about 30 minutes. The laser cutting is top notch, clean and I noted no issues. The welds aren't the prettiest but they're thorough and complete and certainly accomplish the job.
Assembly took about 60 minutes by myself. No instructions were included but it was not difficult. I hand tightened all nuts, working on a side at a time and then doing the cross member, followed by the pull-up bars. I then used an impact wrench to tighten. Without the impact wrench I imagine the assembly would've taken another 30 to 45 minutes.
Once assembled the rack felt stable, secure and level. I noted no issues with the powder coating finish and the quality of it is high. The J cups are one-sided, which is only an issue for the OCD.
I've squatted in the rack and it works as expected. Racking the barbell after completely the squats feels secure and stable, with no forward/backward or side to side movement. The Pin/Pipe Safeties slide in and out easily and are similar to other manufacturers. Racking a barbell on the front of the rack did not cause any forward tipping movement.
I then loaded up my econ pulley system for lat pull-downs. Hanging it from the front pull-up bar, with 135 lbs, as I started to pull downs, I noticed the rear 'feet' coming off the ground. I then moved the pulley system to the middle pull-up bar and this immediately went away and the rack remained very stable.
Strict pullups we're done and the rack did not budge an inch. I don't have the height and don't really plan on doing kipping pullups, but imagine this rack could handle that.
In summary, I am absolutely in love with this rack. It's half the price of competitors, extremely well built, is perfect for my basement where I can't drill into the floor and don't have a high ceiling. I don't know how Titan is able to achieve the quality/construction with free shipping and this price, but I'm grateful. I'm a huge fan of Rogue, but will continue to purchase items from Titan as the price is just TOO GOOD to pass up.
