Squat Stands

Does anyone have any suggestions for squat stands? I have a small garage gym, don't want a full rack or cage. Can't afford high end, what are some good low or medium price point stands that people have tried?

Re: Squat Stands

What's your budget? Rogue's ES-1 stand is affordable yet well built and backed by an awesome company. If you are really tight on money and can't come up with the $275 the stand costs you may want build you own for now (there are threads on here by other members) and save up. I've gone the cheapo equipment for now route and in the end it's not worth it. I save a few bucks and get crappy equipment and wish I just had made due till I had enough to get something that would last me a lifetime. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Squat Stands

Browse craigslist, you can find some nice things for cheap. I paid $150 for this exact half rack about 2 years ago. Its supporterd a 450 lb squat no problem (and the safeties supported a 465 failed squat) WFS
