Rogue Monster Lite Squat Stand VS S-1

Hey All,
I've been debating on what squat stand to buy from Rogue and was initially gonna go with the Echo Squat stand, but realized you couldn't add the spotter arms. Since I'm gonna be benching in my garage, etc. I want the spotter arms. I then checked out the S-1 and the SML-1. Does anyone know the differences here? Obviously the S-1 is $20 cheaper, and it's 2x3 vs 3x3... Anyone have any experience with the SML-1? Thanks!!!

I've got the S-1 and it's plenty strong enough. The other thing to think about is the monster attachments are all more expensive. Total with the spotter arms it's $50 more than the S-1

Mat,
What attachments have you used with the S-1? It looks like there aren't a whole lot of options unless you bump up to the S-2... but i've already got a kick a** ceiling mounted pull up bar.

Re: Rogue Monster Lite Squat Stand VS S-1

I have an S-1 and love it. I also have ceiling mounted pull-up bar so no need for the S-2. Very limited attachments for S-1 though which I don't like. I want an R-3 eventually and will convert my S-1 into a yoke!

Re: Rogue Monster Lite Squat Stand VS S-1

I was recently comparing these two stands and ended up ordering the R3 rack. My suggestion is for you to do the same, cause in the long run you'll get more use out of it and it will take all the attachments. I know, $480 or $695, a $215 dollar difference but I think you will be happier in the end.

buy once, cry once

I haven't done it yet, but I've been planning on getting the yoke kit. Adding the yoke crossmember would stabilize it enough to use any of the attachments the S-2 has. Jason is right though; if you can do it, get the R-3. You'll be happier with it in the long run
