Overview of the Rogue parallel landmine handle
The Rogue parallel Landmine handle is an upgrade to the usual triangle grips that are used with barbells. Often triangle grips are just put on the barbell without a proper a sleeving mechanism. This provides a less secure set up that also scratches your bar. The Rogue parallel Landmine provides a sleeve that neatly fits your barbell in. This means heavier weights to pull and less damage to your bar. The full specifications of the rogue parallel Landmine handle are:
Made in the USA
For use with Rogue Landmine and/or Rogue Post Landmine, Rogue Monster Landmine, Rogue Double Landmines
Handle Length: 8.75" (Handle)
Handle Diameter: 1.9" fat grip, 1.3" standard
Handle Finish: Signature Black Powder Coat
0.25" thick Laser-Cut Steel Plating with Rogue branding
Total Weight: 12LB
Compatible with any standard Oly barbell
This is a good option for a commercial gym that wants to provide for T bar rows without wrecking the equipment. For a home gym, this might be a bit too bulky for single use.
Pros of the Rogue parallel landmine handle
Pros of the rogue parallel Landmine handle are:
The rogue parallel Landmine provides you with a fat grip and a normal grip option. The fat grip is very interesting if you want to improve your grip. The sleeve is well made and fits many barbells in a snug way. Good to get any kind of t bar rows going. As with al ist every rogue product, it is overbuilt and nearly unbreakable.
Cons of the Rogue parallel landmine handle
Cons of the Rogue parallel Landmine:
No hole for a carabiner
Needs Landmine to function
Compared to other triangular handles the rogue version is massive. There is no way you will fit this monster into your gym bag. $62.50 is also not the full price for your t bar row setup. You will also need a Landmine $75 - $125 depending on your preference. This handle can also not be used with any low row or large pull setups as it misses the hole to attach a carabiner for the cable.
Alternatives to the Rogue parallel landmine handle
Alternatives to the Rogue parallel landmine handle are:
The rogue T bar row is a fully functioning stand-alone rowing machine. The only thing you need to add for t bar rows is plates. This makes it a great machine to save time when you have space and money. The t-bar row will roughly set you back $600.
The single Landmine handle is half the cost of the double and does the same thing as the parallel for one hand. It also smaller and therefore easier to store. The only downside is that you can not go as heavy on one arm rows.
The back widow is a handle that can be used as a lat pull bar, deadlift jack, and Landmine row attachment for barbells. If you have the $300 I think it is the best option for home gyms to cover all of these applications without creating clutter.
Conclusion for the Rogue parallel landmine handle
The rogue parallel Landmine handle does what it says on the tin. For t bar rows it is a better option than a triangular handle without a sleeve. For home gyms, I think the back widow is a better option if you can afford it. Commercial gyms might want to get a t-bar station if space allows. The setup with a barbell, handle and Landmine almost comes to the same price as a proper station.
