The Rogue Monster Landmine 2.0 is one of my favorite pieces of equipments in my garage gym. For $125, Rogue has delivered a user friendly, easy to relocate product that does exactly what it’s supposed to do without taking up much space.
I have limited space in my garage gym so a traditional landmine attached to a weight plate or the wall would get in the way. I purchased the Rogue Monster Landmine 2.0 to save space but have been very pleased with the devices overall use.
First, the Landmine 2.0 is incredibly easy to attach and detach from my Rogue RM-4 (pictured with the landmine). Rogue Fitness has chosen to implement a knurled knob setup. The knob stays secure during movements and detaches with ease. I’ve become a fan of the knurled knob setup at Rogue for various uses and the Landmine 2.0 is so far my favorite use of the knob.
Here’s a quick look at the knurled knob with the landmine 2.0:
Movement with the Rogue Monster Landmine 2.0 is awesome. There is absolutely no drag with this unit, even after 6 months of nearly daily use. Whether pivoting the landmine 2.0 up and down or left and right, it truly feels like an extension of my power rack.
There is one improvement I would like to see. The landmine 2.0 doesn’t feature a tube with UHMW plastic, which may be hard to place inside, which means my Rogue Ohio Cerakote bar is out of the equation for fear of scratching up its sleeves. Instead, I choose to use a cheap Titan Fitness Economy Olympic Bar which cost just $109.99 with shipping. You can find the Titan Fitness bar HERE.
The $125 cost for the landmine attachment and another $110 for the Titan Fitness economy bar still makes this a win in my book. I’ve also added a Titan Fitness Landmine Stand with Weight Horns to the equation. The landmine stand added another $199 to the total cost of my setup but it’s worth it for heavier landmine lifts and sets me up perfectly for Viking presses and other heavyweight movements that start above waist level.
After six months of heavy use, my Rogue Monster Landmine 2.0 attachment has proven one thing, I won’t be going back to a traditional landmine attachment in the future. Rogue truly knocked this one out of the park.
