Overview of the TITAN wall mounted pulley tower

 
The TITAN wall mounted pulley tower is a great solution for any home gym that wants a pulley, but is strapped for space. The only prerequisite is that you are allowed to drill into the walls and ideally it is one of the outdoor / carrying walls. Plaster walls might not be ideal to install this so check your setup before getting to business. This pulley tower is plate loadable and comes with the necessary straps included in the shipping to start training. For the price you can not really complain and turn your gym in a more complete experience. The full specification of the TITAN wall mounted pulley system are:
 
- Compatible with the T-3, X-2, X-3, and TITAN Series Power Racks
- Small footprint makes this Wall Mounted Pulley Tower a perfect addition for those with limited space
- Heavy-duty powder-coated steel frame
- Standard 1-inch weight posts with 7-inches of loadable sleeve length
- 18-Different adjustable positions opens up a variety of exercises to suit any size athlete
- Bottom bracket allows you to install the pulley tower into walls without disrupting your baseboard
- Includes: (2) single-hand straps
 
- Overall Height: 84.5-in.
- Footprint: 27-in x 26.5-in.
- Overall Depth: 25.5-in.
- Weight Capacity: 350 lb.
- Product Weight: 75 lb.
 
This is a great addition especially in a garage gym that is cheap, versatile, simple to use and space efficient. Nothing you can do wrong here for the price of a fancy dinner.
 

Pros of the TITAN wall mounted pulley tower

 
The pros of the TITAN wall mounted pulley are:
 
  • Price
  • Versatility
  • Space requirements
 
The price of this pulley system is almost impossible to beat. You still get an industrial grade machine for the price of a consumer product. IT can be used for almost any pulley exercise you might wanted to do on a bigger station without the disadvantage of the lack of stability and the need for more space. Easy solution for a great gym addition.
 

Cons of the TITAN wall mounted pulley tower

 
The cons of the TITAN wall mounted pulley tower are:
 
  • Wall installation
  • Plate loaded
 
The only real problem with this is that the tools you need to drill into the wall will probably cost more to rent or buy than the pulley station itself. It also depends on whether you are actual allowed to drill into the walls of the house or apartment you are living in.
 
You will also need to factor in the cost of plates,if you do not already have some. 230lbs can be gotten from TITAN for about $400.
 

Alternatives to the Titan wall mounted pulley tower

 
 
The TITAN lat tower includes a seat and a weight stack for up to 300lbs to do lat pulls and rows. The design is a clone of the Rogue lat pull which outperforms the TITAN lat tower in the finish and finer details. Apart from that it is the same machine for a considerably lower cost.
 
If you only want a machine to perform rows, the TITAN plate loaded seated row is a good option with a small footprint that does not need to be installed on the wall. It comes including the seat and setup to row away once it is build. The only downside is that it is a one trick pony and not very versatile compared to the wall mounted pulley.
 
The Rogue Jammer bar is a high quality pull up bar from Rogue that you can install over a door frame. I highly recommend to install it at the kitchen door and do pull ups whenever you go in or come out of the kitchen. An easy approach to fitness, relatively cheap and you can not do anything wring with.
 
The Rogue lat pull machine is the current gold standard in the market for lat pull machines. This thing is overbuilt in every way and Rogue paid close attention to the finer details in the finish. This also means that this beast comes in at a high price of around $2000. This is only an option if money is if little concern to you or you running a very professional and highly successful commercial gym.
 

Conclusion for the Titan wall mounted pulley tower

 
The TITAN wall mounted pulley tower is one of the best options to get a pulley system into your home gym. Especially if you are good with tools and know how to install something into a solid wall. If you are not a handyman you can still get someone to install it for you and not be sad, as it was so cheap to buy this thing.

Overview of the RM 390F Flat foot

The RM390F rack is a special rack in the Rogue Line up. IT is one of two racks with the flat foot design. The flat foot design makes it possible that you do not have to drill the rack into the ground to anchor it. This makes the flat foot a very popular option in scenarios where a wood, carpet or rubber floor have already been installed and should not be damaged. 
 
The Flat Foot weighs 335LB and comes in with a width of 24''. It is 93'' high and therefore has a footprint of 54''x'50''.  The flat foot is compatible with the accessories of the Monster series. The only thing to consider is that Band pegs and safety spotter arms should not be used with the Flat Foot Monster rack. Get safety pins instead.
 

How many clients should the Rogue RM390F bring you?

If you think that the Rogue RM390F will bring you 4 new clients who pay you 50$ on a 1-year retainer it is worth the investment. This will yield 2.400$ net new revenue against an investment of 1.211$. Adjust the numbers for your own gym accordingly.
 

Pros of the 390F Flat foot

The biggest pro of this rack is the flat foot design. This means you can install this rack anywhere where there is space. No nasty holes in the floor which need to be refilled once you want to move the rack somewhere else.
 

Cons of the 390F Flat foot

 
If you get a half rack you have to think about where to store your plates. In addition, not everyone likes to train in a half rack. IT can be a bit tight for a three-step walk out. 
 

Alternatives to the 390F Flat foot

For the same budget of 1.211$ you have the following alternatives with Rogue:
 
  • 1x RML 390F Monster Lite @795$
The Rogue RML 390F is the Monster Lite version of the flat foot design. This is a very viable option to save about 500$. You are already in the market for a solution with a small footprint for home use and small athletes. You might as well save a bit more money by going for the slightly less sturdy construction of the same product.
 
If you want a full rack that gets you close to the champions this is the rack to go for. Think of the fittest man on earth while training to set new PRs in a full rack dedicated to the greatest CrossFitter of all time.
 

Conclusion

The 390F Flat foot is a great half rack to use at home which does not need to be bolted down. With this you can train and move whenever it is convenient.
