The gym I go to most often just got some new Rogue equipment. The first piece I noticed today as a Monster Bench with a Thompson Fat Pad on it. What a great feel for bench pressing. I can put my feet flat on the floor and drive without my butt coming out and the fabric grips like glue so there's no sliding. http://www.roguefitness.com/monster-uti ... -and-specs
The second iten was the TB-1 Trap Bar. It's a great bar but it was a little dicerning. It's a lot heavier than our old bar, 80 lbs vs 25 lbs. The knurling is agressive but I can adapt to that. One issue is that the handles aren't elevated. It will takes some getting used to it. http://www.roguefitness.com/tb-1-rogue-trap-bar

They're putting in a 12' chinup bar too and they got some accesories for the rack that we're poorly thought out. It's almost like they needed to spend some money at year end and went through the catelouge, not that ever happens.

I realize this is an old post but I've used one of those benches and they are great. My college had one and I couldn't believe the difference. Hated having to go back to the plasticy stuff again.
