Rogue Vertical Plate Storage

Just purchase the new Rogue S1 squat stand and am deciding on getting the Rogue Vertical Plate Storage. I am trying to decide on the single or double plate storage. I would like the double but it is hard tell if the length of the double may get in the way of the J-Cups when doing bench press or when you lower the J-cups to around that height. Anyone had any experience with this?
Cheers Michael

Re: Rogue Vertical Plate Storage

My one friend has the S-3 and he said the double plate storage gets in the way for squats, because the plates stick out too far. He has to take all the plates off of the top ones every time he squats.

Re: Rogue Vertical Plate Storage

I have them for my S1 stand and they are cool.

However, i put (2) 45's and a 25 on each side and they start to point downward. If there were 2 pins spread apart instead of 1 pin in the middle it wouldn't do that.

I also use my S1 for bench and i have to keep plate storage pinned at the very bottom of the rack or they weights on the bar will hit the weights on the rack.

Re: Rogue Vertical Plate Storage

Brian:

We opened up the holes a bit so they would fit all tube variances and I think it may have caused the slope issue.

Send me an email: team@roguefitness.com and I will send you the solution. We are going to put a 1/16" rubber backing on the inside of the channel.

All fixed

Thanks for the feedback

Bill

Re: Rogue Vertical Plate Storage

I have the double plate storage on my R-3, and while it looks cool and does a great job of storage, it's HUGE and gets in the way of squats.
