This rack was easy to put together and is pretty rugged. I have only used it to squat once so far, but I can tell that this was the right choice. It was a little bigger than I anticipated but it works. Thank you for making a product comparable to Rogue but way more affordable!
I had originally ordered this rack along with (2) sets of Bolt-on X-3 Plate Holders and (1) Titan Fitness Flat Weight Bench 1,000 lb Rated Capacity w/ Handle & Wheels.
The assembly was a breeze with 1 person, just make sure that you start off by getting the bolts in and secured with the nuts and then tightening everything to the best of your ability. The included J-Cups work well, as do the spotter arms.
Easy to assemble and once complete feels very sturdy with 315+ on the bar for bench or squat. There is some side-to-side wiggling, but the bolts hold fast.
Great price point. My rack arrived without any blemish, and the powder coat looks great
There is no way that you can attach (2) sets of Bolt-on X-3 Plate Holders to this squat stand and have them hold plates without them completely interfering with lifts and the spotter arms unless you purchase the X-3 Half Rack Conversion Kit (which I intend to do). There is not enough clearance in between the lowest point of the vertical stands for even 1 set of Bolt-on X-3 Plate Holders, the J-Cups, and the spotter arms to be attached for bench. I end up having to remove the 45's on the plate holders when doing bench, as the spotter arms (on the lowest point, being used with my Titan Fitness Flat Weight Bench 1,000 lb Rated Capacity w/ Handle & Wheels) will allow the barbell loaded with 45's to hit the 45's on the plate holders.
You will need to purchase the X-3 Half Rack Conversion Kit to efficiently store plates using the Bolt-on X-3 Plate Holders unless you intend on purchasing a plate tree.
There is a lot of sway (right to left) in the rack when you re-rack anything above 405. This should be stable enough, but I will feel more comfortable once I add an X-3 Stabilizer Bar and the X-3 Half Rack Conversion Kit.
The spotter arms may get in the way of benching (even on the lowest point) for guys with shorter arms. I have maybe 2" of clearance above each arm when the barbell is resting on my chest to give you an idea of clearance. This may hinder some lifters.
This is a great squat stand, but will be an amazing squat stand once the stabilizer bar and half-rack conversion are added. The storage limitations should be noted on the purchase page in case people are intending on using it as a plate-storage medium like I did, but overall this is a great piece of equipment.
This rack performs its job just as well as the Rogue product it copies. It's just as strong, has the same options and is about half the price. Cosmetically, Rogue wins the battle, but why pay twice as much for something that by its very nature is going to get dinged up? That makes no sense. I say buy the Titan and spend what you save on a nice new Rogue Ohio Bar! Five stars for value and build.
Definitely recommend for those looking a budget and reliable option. The rack is very sturdy after tightly bolted. No tipping at all. Plus you can't beat the free expedited shipping! It arrived only after 2 days!
Received X3 Sqaut rack today. Was delivered in great condition and in a timely manner, 3 days.
There are some minor stuff on paint, but not an issue. The quality and price is definitely worth buying this Squat rack. It's just as good as Rogues Squat rack. I put it to use today doing Squats and it works great. Solid as any Rogue rack I've used.
11 gauge steel on risers and base. I'm personally sold on this X3 line and plan on buying more from Titian. Highly Recommended
I almost bought the Rogue Monster Lite squat stand..... but then I saw this one on the Titan site. It arrived packed very well in three boxes 3 days after I placed the order. Not much else to say except buy it if you want a well designed, well built, heavy duty rack with spotter arms for $295 shipped. I've only had it a few days, but I can't see how it could be any better. Spend your extra money on a good barbell. Nice work Titan. Highly recommended.
