Rogue Portable Gymnastic System

I'm sure some of you knew Rogue was working on making a pull up bar to go with the rings. It's in their store now. They're offering it with the rings and bar http://www.roguefitness.com/catalog/...roducts_id=390 Any thoughts on whether it is worth the extra money? I am still try to decide between Xtreme rings and Rogue's. I emailed both companies early last week and Rogue got back to me within a few hours, still nothing from Xtreme.

Re: Rogue Portable Gymnastic System

I highly recommend the Rogue Rings! I have a better grip on them than i do with plastic rings. I like how they feel while doing dips as well. I also have the bar. If you do not have one or you want a portable bar then it would be a nice thing to have. It is not essential like the rings but it is a very nice piece of equipment to have in the toolbox.

I am occasionally able to workout at Rogue Fitness and have used both the rings and portable pull up bar. The portable pull up bar is nice and exceptionally well made. The quality of all their gear is top notch.

The rings are great. There are many other posts on the rings, so I will leave it at that.

I don't think a lot has been posted about the bar. Not sure if I can explain this very well - the strap threads through some slots on the end of the bar. This keeps the bar stable in the straps so it will not rotate when you are using it. The bar itself has a good feel in you hands. Surprisingly, you can learn to kip on the bar!

If you are in need of a portable system, you will not be disappointed in this product.

I already have the rings. I wonder if they would sell just the bar? Looks nice.

Re: Rogue Portable Gymnastic System

How much does the bar swing when you kip on it?

Re: Rogue Portable Gymnastic System

I too am deciding between the Rogue Rings and the Xtreme. I would go Rogue but I am concerned about the portability factor. I want to take them hiking with me and on trips/vacation. Anyone know the weight difference?

Re: Rogue Portable Gymnastic System

1) The weight of the Rogue rings are 7LBs total, they are very portable! They wrap up very neatly with the velcro straps below the large cam buckle. Our straps are 1.5" wide with a robust buckle assembly that is very easy to rig.

2) We will have the RPG up stand alone without the rings later today

3) The bar has the same finish as the rings and is bulletproof

We have been trying to think of other uses for the straps, any ideas? If any of you guys/gals have creative ideas for equipment with the straps, post it here!
