Hi everybody. I don’t usually post, I mostly lurk and read. But now I need a bit of help, so I’m really hoping maybe some of you guys can help me.
I figured the Strongman category was the best for this topic. If it doesn’t belong here then I apologize. Also, English is not my first language, so I apologize also for any spelling og grammar mistakes.
I’m going to buy a Rogue yoke to use as both a squat rack and a yoke. I’m quite limited on floor space, so the ability to have a squat rack that I can pack away easily if needed and that I can bring outside in the summer appeals to me. That I get a yoke as well is just the cherry on top. So please don’t recommend a squat rack or similar instead; I’m definitely buying a yoke.
But which one? The problem is height. I wonder if I should buy the Y1 yoke although I fear it might be a bit short to use as a squat rack without banging my head on the crossmember (I’m 5’11"), or if I should buy the Y2 and cut it down to size (max height 78" due to various reasons). That seems like a lot of hassle for a few extra inches, but it’s also the safest bet, as I can’t really figure out exactly how tall the Y1 is.
In the main picture of the Y1 on the Rogue site, it’s listed as 72" from the floor to the top of the uprights.
However, in the picture that shows all three yokes, the Y1 is listed as 70" from the floor to the top of the uprights.
And to really confuse things, the S1 squat stand that uses the same uprights as the Y1 but does not have the skid feet is also listed as 72" tall from the floor to the top of the uprights.
So, which is correct? If the S1 is 72", then surely the Y1 with the skid feet should actually be closer to 73" or thereabouts?
If anyone who actually owns the Y1 would be kind enough to measure the exact height then I would greatly appreciate it. Both the height from the floor to the top of the uprights, as well as the height from the floor to the bottom of the crossmember (the part you would hit your head on if too low) when it is in its uppermost position, if anyone would be so kind. Thank you in advance.
