Struggling to handle weights greater than 500 pounds, there are many other products that can withstand much higher weights.
In Titans, they’re a mix of teenagers and adults, meeting each other for the first time. It is not the cost, it is the hassle of drilling into my basement floor.
While I don't have the rack, I do have some thoughts.
Asking as a newbie.
Press J to jump to the feed. Titan makes some pretty good equipment at the price they're selling. I know a lot of people tend to dislike Titan for shipping/packaging purposes, but I'm looking for opinions on these. Heres my imgur for my set up... if I were in your shoes I would have a hard time choosing to because I just recently discovered rep fitness and think their prices and quality are spot on. I would say part of it depends on your ceiling height. Lifting weights is my main hobby and it feels nice to have nice things. The build quality of their products is fantastic. One's hole diameter is slightly larger than the other. The hole spacing near the bench area allowed me to dial bench in perfectly with the safety bars. I like how they are rounded and go all the way through the rig. My Titan T2 has been worth every dime.

I have the T2. Its not a full cage but i can do everything with this wall mount that someone can do with a cage and i only paid 230 with it. Buying used though seems to be the best way to save some money.
I didn't even know about the Titan squat stand until your post, so thanks for sharing. I own a Titan T2 and I've had no problems with it.
There are a few downsides, however, relative to the T3. That can cause some issues if you're only working with an 8' ceiling and want to do pullups.
Titan T-2 vs. T-3 The main difference I see in these two racks is the weight storage on the T-3. I agree with you.
So the real question: A Titan T-2 pops up locally for $225 supposedly still new in box, haven't verified in person yet. I've been looking at reviews and posts regarding different power racks. I don't regret my purchase, cause it was $100 ($150 on sale and I got $70 for applying for a AMZN Prime card, ~$100 after tax).
If budget wasn't a concern be easier choice (I think). A disadvantage to the Titan 2 is the weight capacity. The biggest thing I think is that the T-2 is limited on accessories.
It's been a great investment.
ie. I'm leaning more towards the T-3 Squat rack, but I'd take any opinions right now. Both are great but the t-3 has more accessories right now. I can see the appeal of the nicer ones from Titan, Rogue, and even Legend. An 11ga rack by comparison should last forever without any signs of wear other than scratches and scrapes. You may feel differently though. Saved 250 getting a wall mount which I spent on other toys.
Plus the T-3 has better bolt-hole spacing for said accessories and safeties.
What this means is that you will not want to set it on a hard surface without something to cushion it. To me it looks like Titan multigrip pull-up might not fit on the rep rack but it’s hard to see from the pictures. Depends on how much weight you think you'll squat in your lifetime.
Other than this they don't seem to be much different so I'm a bit torn deciding between the two. I like my T2, the only thing I don't like it that it supports its weight on the heads of 4 bolts that hit the floor before the rest of it does. Getting back into weight training after some years of running. You should be able to get a strap-safety system for the T-2 though so that can eliminate some of those problems. The only real complaint I have is that the numbering of the holes on the uprights are hard to see due to poor engraving. Brenton’s Dick still feels like Dick to me for the most part. What do you plan to do with it?
It fit the bill perfectly for when I was first starting my home gym.
Thanks for the thoughts.
Yeah, when I saw your post I thought for sure it was a Rogue squat stand until I read your description of the equipment. Titan T-2 or Rep PR-1000?
Not a titan fanboy but everything came in one peice and went together with no problems and for the price i was happy. I will say this, the rep fitness safety arms are awesome. I would say Titan also has a leg up on Rep with the amount of accessories they offer for their rack. At that price I probably would have pulled the trigger, but now I have the luxury of waiting for another deal.

As a few mentioned, accessories may be the deciding point. The hole spacing is awesome, I set my j-hooks for squat and bench, spotter arms are the same for both.

Haven't had to move anything else since I put it up. Would that be a better investment? I also like the extended safeties on the Rep rack. I leave you with this last tid bit.... people complain about titan shipping a lot and where there is smoke there is fire but a few scratches on heavy steel isnt going to affect it... youre gonna scratch it up anyway. If saving space is your game, the Titan T-2 gets the edge for being a little easier to fit in most rooms. The only deal breaker might be the accessories so take a look at what you can get. It's probably the most solid rack you'll find for the price quite honestly.

You can't really go wrong in getting the T2 unless you're already squatting like 500lbs, in which case you probably wouldn't be here asking this question to begin with. Here's a pic of my setup right after I got it all put together.
I think these are the things that make a bigger difference than whether your rack can theoretically hold thousands of pounds and doesn’t wobble as much when you re-rack.
rogue, Here's a list of things I've had trouble finding for my rack with t-2 sized peg holes -band pegs -landmine attachments -spotter arms -monolifts -safety straps -affordable j hook upgrades. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts.
I didn't feel like I would be confident squatting heavy in the cheaper racks. But is the T-2 really good enough? And if you ever need to upgrade or replace it, it's cheap enough that you will have gotten your money's worth for how many years it will last you.
I've had my T-3 squat rack for 2 weeks now. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. I don't own a T3, but the floor stands look much better to me. When comparing the Titan T3 and the Titan T2, one customer on Reddit stated, “A T-2 is fine until you start squatting 600+, I base this on the 700lb rating. The T-2 also comes in a short version that’s only 71″ tall. http://www.titan.fitness/squat-rack.html, T-3 Squat Rack pros being 5/8" hardware, 11 gauge steel, and westside hole spacing. So the real question: A Titan T-2 pops up locally for $225 supposedly still new in box, haven't verified in person yet. T-2 Power Rack pros being a full rack for extra safety and longer safeties.
At what point would I be saying I really wish I had ______. The T2 does (but dip bars are an extra).
