Currently I have the Fitness Reality 810XLT I bought 3 years ago. Pretty solid little cage, has held up well over all this time. There is nothing really wrong with it. It still works fine. Problem is i’m sort of growing out of it. It only has 800lb capacity and my strength has gone up a lot since I bought it.
So i’m looking for something a bit sturdier/that I can grow into a bit more.
The cheapest is the Sunny Health Power Cage at $341. Pros: 1000lb capacity, resistance band pegs, weight plate holders (2). Cons: holes are smaller than the 1" standard, so accessories are limited.
Next would be the papable power cage at $550. Pros: 1200lb capacity, cable pulley attachment comes standard. Cons: Higher price, holes are also smaller than standard, no weight plate holders.
Finally I found the Titan T-3 series at $630 (4x weight plate holders and safety pins added). Pros: 1100lb capacity, westside spacing, 4 plate holders, Titan brand means well built, 1 inch holes is good for attachments. Cons: Price is getting up there.
Any ideas or other good sturdy 1000lb+ racks you know about? I’m leaning toward the Titan one, because while a bit pricier, it’s guaranteed to be built quality and also has plate holders (tired of picking plates up off the floor). Also the cable attachment on the papable one is a bit questionable quality according to some reviews.
