Overview of the Rogue Mono Stand

 
The   Rogue Mono stand  is an interesting variation on the SML 1 Squat stand. With this setup, you can unrack the weight and there is no need   to  walk it out. This is especially good for lifters who are injured or when you want   to  attempt a one repetition maximum. This design makes acquiring a Monolift station very affordable compared   to  other options in the market. 
 
The   Rogue Mono stand  comes in black and is manufactured in Columbus, Ohio. The dimensions of this Stand are 57'' in width, 86'' in length and 78'' in height. The overall weight of the unit comes   to  310LB. This leaves it with a footprint of 86''x57''. The stell notes are made of 3x3'' 11 Gauge steel.
 
If you want   to  get serious about   powerlifting and meets   which  allow for   monolift  stations, this design is the one for you. It is a lot easier   to  handle than a traditional   Mono Stand  and less prone   to  get broken. The arms of traditional   mono stands  have the tendency   to  block over the years. There is nothing worse than a lever that is not moving out of the way when you have a very heavy weight on your shoulders. 
 

Pros of the Rogue Mono stand

 
The design makes it clever and uses a lot less material   to  create the same effect as other   mono stands. With this, even an average gym can implement a   mono stand   to  attract more customers or help injured athletes. If you are serious about   powerlifting and want   to  save some money on a   mono stand  this is the way   to  look.
 

Cons of the Rogue Mono Stand

 
The biggest flaw of this design is that you can not use the   mono stand  by itself. You need another person with you   to  rerack the weight. If you always train with other monster lifters this is great. However, for many, this is just simply not the case. 
 

Alternatives to the Rogue Mono stand

 
There the following alternatives   to  the   Rogue Mono stand  the   Rogue  portfolio:
 
 
The Monolift Attachments are available for Monster, Monster lite and Infinity series of   Rogue. The adjustable version is only available for Monster and Monster lite. I would definitely recommend investing the extra 30 - 40$   to  get the adjustable version. This way it will be easier for you   to  use the Monolift attachment for the squat and bench press instead of having   to  get the wrench ut each time you swap.
