Overview and review of the T2 and dip
The TITAN T2 and dip will put you back about $300 - $350. TITAN is well known for their very good prices compared to their competition and will get you started on your home gym. This review was originally posted in “which Titan rack to buy for under $500”
Overview of the T2 and dip
The T2 comes with 2x2 steel tubes and distinguished itself from the X2 line by having fewer extras straight out of the box. You will have fewer pull-up bars and less convenience on the uprights. The money saved for this can be put towards a bench as in this package. This version also includes a dip installment at the front. The features and specifics of this package are:
- Capacity: 700 lbs
- 1" round steel j-hooks
- T-2 Series (2"x2" steel tubes)
- Package includes 1 pair of dip bars
- Chin up bar: 1 1/4" diameter
- Installation instructions
- Weight: 107 lb
- Height: 83"
- Height of pull up bar: 80"
- Opening: 44"
- Depth: 48"
- Inside front to back bar: 26"
- Floor space: 48" x 48"
- Material: Steel
The main difference to most other is the included dip bars.
Pros of the T2 dip bar
The price of the T2 is one of its main pros. You will be hard-pressed to find as much metal for a rack including a dip bar for the same price in the market. Especially if it is new.
Cons of the T2 dip bar
The dip bar can obstruct access to the rack itself. You will also not be able to use the front to have two athletes squat in parallel on the same rack. This might not be ideal, especially in high school and college setups strapped for cash.
Alternatives to the T2 dip bar
X2 and incline combo
The T3 uses a folding concept but with 2x3 steel tubes to be stored against the wall when you don’t use it.
The X2 is one of the cheapest series in the TITAN line up. With its 2x2 steel tubes, it uses the least material to build a rack. If you want to downsize on all ends to fit a bench and rack into $500 budget comfortably, this is for you.
Summary of the T2 dip bar
If you care about a dip bar, this is the rack. Otherwise, you might as well save the money for more plates or a bench.
