I am in the process of buying a Power Rack/Cage for my garage gym and have narrowed my search down to the NY Barbell Titan Power Rack. I have used a cage exclusively for Crossfit for over a year and enjoy the one stop shopping that it offers.
Anybody have any experience with this Power Rack or can offer any advice on it's quality, price, or any other competitive brands? It is $500 which I think is fair and I have a NY Barbell Glute/Ham machine I got on Craigslist for any awesome price. I am very pleased with it because it is sturdy and well built so I think this Power Rack will be also.

Thanks for the help!

ProMaxima makes what looks like a pretty cool half-rack with storage and a pullup bar. It sells for $595. Glenn Pendlay uses their squat racks and speak highly of their construction. It takes up a little less space and there's no temptation to do Olympic lifts inside a cage (potentially dangerous). If you're sold on the cage, they've got a bare-bones one for $285.

Work and Family safe link for the half-rack:

This is the work/home safe link for the Gill rack that I have. Here's the platform I built for the rack.

The rack is terrific and as a CrossFitter you can get a better deal from Kark Geissler at Gill than is shown in the catalog. The rack is huge and made even better if you build it into a platform as you see in the picture.

Not the best photo of the rack but the web site picture gives you a good view of it. I'll take more if you want to see it better.
