Rogue Velocidor Review (2024): The Evolution of Matador Dip Bars

Rogue Velocidor is the next step in the evolution of the popular Matador dip handle attachment. This design comes in both Monster Series and Monster Lite compatibility. With removable handles, you can customize both the width and angle of your dips to suit your preferences.

Rogue Velocidor Review

Alright, let’s break it down. I’ve seen the Rogue Velocidor, and I gotta say, I’m a fan. Now, let me be clear, it’s not something you absolutely need in your home gym, especially considering the price tag ($295). But if you just want to treat yourself, this thing is pretty darn cool.

It’s a real eye-catcher. The craftsmanship is top-notch, even in the small details. It’s got that rugged powdercoat finish that gives it a solid look. Plus, that laser-cut Velocidor logo is a nice touch.

Rogue Velocidor Weight

Is it heavy? I heard it’s heavy. Yeah, it’s not exactly feather-light, but it’s not back-breaking either. The weight was a concern for me too, but here’s the deal: if you take off the handles and move the base separately, it’s more manageable. Plus, you can carry it suitcase-style using the hitch pins as handles, and that makes it a breeze.

Rogue Velocidor Angles

Do those angle adjustments really do anything? Or is that a gimmick?

Surprisingly, yes, they do make a difference. I thought I’d experiment with angles to find the perfect setup and it turns out they really affect the feel of your dips. So, yes, they’re more than just a gimmick.

Rogue Velocidor vs Mutant Metals Dip Attachment

So, should you go for Rogue Velocidor ($295) or the Mutant Metals Ultimate Dip Attachment ($325)?

It depends on your priorities. If you’re all about angles and don’t mind a bit more weight, the Velocidor is a great choice. But if you want something lighter, easier to carry, and with more color options, the MM UDA might be your jam. It also has fancier stainless handles.

Why did I go for the Velocidor in the end?

  1. I realized the weight wasn’t as much of an issue as I initially thought.
  2. Some folks reported noticeable flex in the MM UDA, which made me lean towards the Velocidor with its beefier construction.
  3. I personally prefer thicker handles,and the Velocidor’s handles are right up my alley.

Rogue Velocidor Review Conclusion

In summary, am I happy with my choice?

Absolutely. I’m thrilled with this purchase and can’t wait to use it. I’m even getting rid of my old, cheap dip parallettes. If the MM UDA were the only option, I’m sure I’d be happy with it too, but the Velocidor just feels right, and I’m glad I splurged on it.
