These are functionally very solid. The only thing I would criticize is that the front pads are constantly rotating and sticking out past the metal. The bottom one does as well but it doesn't have far to rotate. The front one rotates. If the front one was a little bigger and/or the bottom one was as well then there would not but near as much rotation but as it stands one corner will stick out a quarter to a half an inch most of the time. Alternatively, two bolts to hold it in place instead of the one would fix this. I would have purchased the Flat-J cups instead if they had them in stock at the time.
I have both the rogue jcups (which is 25 dollars more expensive) and this one, and the rep fitness one blows the competition out of the water. It's full covered with hard polymer inserts so your rack doesn't get scratched up and it even has inserts covering the entire face of the jcup to protect the bar knurl. The quality of the inserts themselves are also superior to rogues.. the rogue ones are this very hard and brittle plastic which quickly erodes, while rep uses a softer more malleable version which lasts for much longer...
Had the standard rogue j-cups on my monster lite rack, but hated that the barbell could roll on them. The PR-4000 Round J-cup are heavy duty and the barbell can only rest in one spot which is definitely what I prefer. Would recommend them to anyone. Yes, they fit the monster lite racks.
I purchased 2 pairs of the standard J-cups after working out with the rounded sandwich J-cups. When I ordered my PR-5000 I chose the rounded sandwich cups but I noticed when completing benching a lot of times the bar ended up on top of the cup instead of inside the hooks. The standard cups have a thinner back which prevents this as they sit closer to the uprights. I use the standard for most workouts closer to the body like benching, military press and squats. I still use the rounded cups but mostly to hold the bar at lower positions for workouts such as deadlifts or rows.
The fit on the rack is great as well as the overall construction, but the plastic pads that hold the bar are not made from uhmw. They are some sort of softer cheap feeling rubber. This causes them to not fit snug to the J-cup allowing them to rotate and bend as you rack the bar. I tried tightening them but that only made them bend further. In my opinion REP should have made all the bar contacts out of uhmw. Well see how they hold up over time.
