Kipping on Rough S2 vs Pendlay Elite Squat Racks?

I am looking for a squat rack for my yard, as well as a pullup bar. I figure that these racks will allow me to do both. The Pendlay is a little cheaper (via 10% off from Wayfair) so I am leaning towards that, but I was wondering if anyone here has any experience kipping on the pullup bar of that Squat Rack. Do you have to buy the plate rack to weigh the Pendlay down enough to kip? Any way to bolt it to the floor?

I am around 145 lbs if that matters.

You meant Rogue S2, right?

I certainly did. I am a victim of autocorrect.

Kipping is not great on the Pendlay Elite Rack. Even if you buy the weight horn attachment, there is still significant instability in the unit.

The nice thing about the Rogue is that you can bolt it to the floor (or a platform).
