Stud Bar Pull Up Bar Vs Rogue Bar
Posted by Brenda Wallace
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then our cheeks are bright red. Stud Bars have been copied before this is nothing new to us. When Rogue followed suite this was another reminder that our patented pull up bar design is the best pull up bar on the market. If you don’t believe us read what Greg Glassman founder of Crossfit said about Stud Bar on our homepage. Rogue described their P-5V garage pull up system as “A variation of the industry’s strongest single unit pull up systems” that’s fairly accurate although it looks like a cheap imitation at best.
Let’s look at some of the variations:
- Stud Bar uses 2X2″ square tubing making Stud Bars sturdy laterally as well as perpendicularly making it bomb proof whether mounted to a wall or ceiling.
- Stud Bars mounting brackets are longer giving you more footprint adding rigidly and spreading out the mounting load along the stud.
- Rogue clearly limited the amount of steel used to maintain its price point.
- The most noticeable difference is the bar mounting set screws:
- Stud Bar patented our bar mounting method which is the cornerstone of our design. Once the bar tightens inward onto the brackets the Stud Bar along with your studs creates a “box” or “square” which adds to the strength of the Stud Bar and allows the sturdy feel Stud Bars are known for. Not even Kipping pull ups will sway a Stud Bar.
- The Rogue set screws that secure the bar will pinch and scratch the bar and overtime loosen with use.
- Stud Bars are available in three different sizes and come with everything needed including the cross bar and mounting hardware.
- Stud Bar’s are designed to line up with your existing studs no adjusting, cutting or altering of bar width is required.
- Rogue’s system is confusing to order. Does it come with the cross bar or not?
- Stud Bars are powder coated and guaranteed for life.
Stud Bar reminds us that as with anything in life you get what you pay for.
