Resistance Option 1: Plate Load Kit

Available as an optional add-on for a new Slinger or a la carte to convert an existing Slinger from band resistance to plate resistance. Works with standard bumpers or steel plates. Package includes:

  • Loading Pin:1.9" diameter, 11.5" loadable space. Weight unloaded = 7.5lbs. Texture Black Powdercoat finish.
  • Plate Load Base: Supports the loading pin when adding plates and connects to customers upright via a 5/8” detent pin. Made from 3/16" laser-cut and formed steel. Texture Black Powdercoat finish.
  • Stroops Lightweight Sheathed Resistance Band: Prevents the loading pin from swaying around while in use. It gets clipped into the bottom of the loading pin from the shackle that is connected to the bottom crossmember. Color: Black
  • Specially Designed Slinger Shackle: Replaces the Monster Lite Shackle of the base unit (if ordering a new Slinger with the Plate Load option, the standard ML Shackle from the base unit package will NOT be included).

Resistance Option 2: Band Kit

Comes with an assortment of resistance bands that connect to the Monster Attachment Post for tricep work and gradual adjustments on lat pulldown movements. Includes:

  • (2) #0 Orange Monster Bands (15 LB resistance)*
  • (1) #1 Red Monster Band (30 LB)*
  • (1) #2 Blue Monster Band (50 LB)*
  • (1) #3 Green Monster Band (65 LB)*

*Due to the 41” length of our Monster Bands, we suggest doubling up each band, i.e., feeding the band through the bottom carabiner (attached to the extension strap) until it is centered, then connecting both ends of the band to the top carabiner (attached to the cable). This will greatly increase the resistance beyond the bands’ standard LB increments.

Customers interested in lighter weights can also explore our full line-up of Monster Bands, available a la carte.


Important: All resistance bands are wear and tear items and should be inspected prior to each and every use. We always recommend that the provided Slinger Band Sheath be used in conjunction with resistance bands on the Monster Slinger.

Resistance Option 3: Weight Stack

The Weight Stack Slinger is specifically designed for 90" tall Monster Lite racks. Racks heights other than 90" tall may not be compatible with this set-up. You can contact us at team@roguefitness.com for inquiries. The Weight Stack kit includes:

  • Chrome-Plated Guide Rods
  • 300 LB Adjustable Stack in 10 LB increments

1

Three Resistance Options

The latest version of the Monster Lite Slinger now gives customers the choice of using the attachment with either a 300 LB weight stack, a resistance band kit, or plate-loaded resistance (featuring a mounted 1.9” diameter loading pin that works with standard bumpers or steel plates). It’s also possible to order resistance kits a la carte to switch from one format to another on an existing Slinger, keeping in mind that the Weight Stack option may not work with units more than 90” tall.

2

Mounting Plates

The Monster Lite version of the Slinger can be installed ONLY on Rogue Monster Lite Racks and the racked version of the Monster Lite Rig. This can be done using the included pair of laser-cut and formed, ¼” thick steel Slinger Mounting Plates, which feature a quality Signature Texture Black Powdercoat finish and Rogue branding.

3

Cable & Hardware

To get the same consistent feel of a freestanding lat pulldown machine, we have equipped the Slinger with a ¼” MIL spec cable, with two durable 6” pulleys and Rogue-made hardware. A pair of ⅝” Bolt Assemblies are also included standard, along with three carabiners.

4

Extension Strap

Made from 1.5” wide nylon webbing, our exclusive Slinger Extension Strap is essential for connecting to 108" tall racks or rigs, but can also be used to adjust how much tension is initially on the bands, regardless of rack height. May not be applicable to Weight Stack Slingers, which are designed for 90” tall units.

5

Optional Slinger Crossmembers

Because the standard Crossmembers on Monster Lite units do NOT include holes on the top/bottom of the tubes, customers can add 24” or 43” Slinger Crossmembers to their order, which include pre-drilled holes for the cable to pass through. Without a Slinger Crossmember, you’ll need to drill a hole through the existing Monster Lite crossmember ahead of set-up. This can be done by an experienced craftsman or by taking the tube to a local fab shop.

6

Get a Grip

In the dropdown menu, customers can choose to add a nylon Rogue Tricep Strap, a Pioneer Leather Tricep Strap, or no strap at all, if you already have a preferred pulldown option. There’s also the option of adding a Rogue Stainless Steel Lat Bar Attachment, a fully knurled bar that’s 48” long and 1.125” in diameter, with laser-cut Rogue branding and a Black Zinc/Bright Zinc finish. For customers planning to install the Slinger on a 108” tall rack, an additional 12” Grip Strap + Carabiner package can compensate for the cable usage difference, allowing shorter athletes to have a free range of motion and a more effective workout.

Great idea, not so great execution
Ordered this to go on my RML Lite rack along with the Solo Pulley attachment, instructions were a little unclear on where exactly I had to drill the hole for my specific rack since they're trying to make one unit fit multiple model racks, the rack I have does not have a removable cross member, the cross member is welded on so even spending money on the pre-drilled member wasn’t an option. I ordered the plate load kit and you have to be extremely slow/careful when raising and lowering the weight or it turns into a pendulum and starts swinging back and forth and slamming into your rack which I find to be maddening when I’m trying to work out. I imagine putting heavier loads on it will result in less swing but I don’t think that’s really a feasible fix. Hole cutting is imperative to have correct spacing or the cable will just rub the grommet to pieces and presumably shred the cable in short order if you’re off by even a little bit. To be honest I would either go with one of the cheap pulley systems which basically functions the same though certainly not as nice looking or spend the money on an independent upright plate loaded high/low cable machines if you have the budget and space. Combining the Slinger with weight stack kit, Solo Pulley, and the seat comes out to about $950, an independent high/low cable plate load system can be had for $750-$1000 and features horizontal plate stack bars and guide rods that make swinging nonexistent. The weight stack kit probably works better but by the time you get the Slinger with the weight stack kit, Solo Pulley attachment, Lat Pulldown seat attachment you’re at over $1,600 which to me seems a bit steep for what you’re getting. I honestly really want to like this set up more than I do but the cost/performance value just isn’t there for me.

Game changer
Added the Slinger to my Monster Lite rack. It’s almost doubled the capabilities of my home gym. Like others have noted, I ran into assembly instruction discrepancies. Easy enough to figure out, though. Highly recommend addition to your rack.

Give the people what they need and want!!
Great product, needless to say. The below picture shows a plate loaded trolley that moves, I assume, much like the rhino belt squat trolley. This needs to be released for the slinger!!! It looks as if it’s almost complete!!

Cable Length Issue With 90 inch rack
I’m not overly impressed with this compared to the rest of the rogue equipment I’ve bought. It seems the cable length is wrong for 90 inch tall racks which i would think are the most popular. I’m just gettting used to using it but I’m pretty sure I’ll need to have custom cables made.

Great Product, A Few Installation Glitches
I purchased this in October and it was finally delivered in January, 2021. There were some major problems with the included instructions for drilling holes in the crossmember. After some back and forth Rogue came through and corrected the instructions. Like all Rogue products, this is well built and virtually bulletproof. Due to some shoulder issues that prevent me from doing pullups, I really needed this Slinger. It allows me to work my Lats again. The 30" crossmember is not available pre-drilled. I took mine to a machinist to drill the holes and it was well worth it as opposed to trying to drill your own holes through steel. It is not easy if you lack the proper tools and experience. I got the plate load resistance kit and it works great. It is easy to attach and detach, provides consistent resistance, and allows you to keep the inside of the rack clear if you want to do squats, etc. inside the rack. I ordered with the stainless Lat Bar and it is another great piece of gear. Overall I am very happy with the product and with the way Rogue customer service came through to address my concerns. This has been a great addition to my rack.

Favorite equipment
Awesome product. I currently use the plate loaded version but I plan to upgrade to the weight stack since I like it so much. Also purchased the lat pull down seat that attaches to the upright. It is a really smooth pull. Very high quality

Great addition
Really enjoying this on a Monster Lite rack. It's a great addition to shoulder and back days. It's rock solid. I worried about the overall rack getting pulled from a corner -- unneeded concern -- no problems. The slinger requires drilling in the top cross member. We got through with a 1" home depot hole saw (ruined it in the process) and a round file to deburr. Or I think you can buy a new cross member as hinted by the directions. It could be improved with a slightly longer cable. Two inches would do it. I run short on travel just by a bit, enough to be a small annoyance. And the instructions were horrible. Remove the cross member. Mock up the placement. And see where the cable falls BEFORE DRILLING. Seriously. The instructions are inches off on this.
