Thinking about getting one for my home gym.

Rogue has several options. Also looked at the Kadillac Bar from Kabuki Strength.

Cost is no concern, within reason.

Suggestions?

I have one from Rogue. It's the multi grip bar with three sets of parrallel grips. I've had it for a few years and I think I should have got the one with different angled grips instead. Of course cost being no object I would have both.

Do you know which one you have? Rogue has 3 different ones at least, and one has 2 different versions.

Space is more of a concern to me than money so I'm not buying 2.

Get a rouge strong man log.

At our gym we use log ohp presses and log incline benches on football kids.
Same neutral grip higher loading capacity and the awkwardness I'm getting it into position build support muscles like crazy.

I had a comp with Max effort incline log bench press I worked up to 305 which took second in middleweight to a seasoned 50 year old powerlifter who hit like 450 like an animal. But I will tell you the transfer to regular bench was amazing and it achieves the same thing the Swiss bar does what is a much cooler and have your loaded Implement for a big dude like you

I have Titan's V2 football bar. Imho you can't beat it for the cost. Paid $109 and that included shipping (free shipping). The paint job isn't as nice as a rogues but it holds up to the beating I give it and that's all that matters to me.

Wow, I don't know how that would handle but I guess it has the most options.
Surprised it only weighs 45 lbs though with that extra piece.
