Quality is on point...very happy with goin with these...i use them on my rogue lite rack....
I have a Rogue S-1 squat rack that is fairly simple with no spotter arms. Rogue's "Infinity Safety Spotter Arms" have been sold out for a long while now and I was happily surprised to find Burli's "Hyper Safety Spotter Arms" that would fit the rack. They are around the same price point with Burli being slightly cheaper even prior to shipping (ISSA run $135 + ship). I have no issues with the quality or aesthetic of the spotter arms. They have very similar features to the ISSA and I expect to get lots of good use out of them. The HSSA have a bottom pin that has a more secure attachment in my opinion than the ISSA. There is a fairly sizable cotter pin that holds them in place, opposed to simple tensioned buttons that the ISSA use. That being said, if you don't want to take the time to insert/remove the pin, then maybe look at another option. One small thing I noticed with the HSSA I received is that one was bowed slightly so that it sits away from the rack instead of flush. However, there's not an issue during use, and the pin secures it anyways. The UHMW is placed similarly for both the ISSA and HSSA. Overall I'm impressed so far and can definitely recommend Burli!
First: One of the pins on the spotter arms arrived damaged in shipping. Burli immediately emailed me a return label and shipped out a replacement ASAP. High marks for fixing the problem immediately with minimal hassle. I understand that things happen. The sign of a great company is how they deal with issues and treat their customers. I'm very satisfied with my interactions with customer support and the speed at which they corrected the issue (especially in light of pandemic problems and air choking fires which disrupted West coast businesses during that time-frame).
Second: The arms are well built and fit my 2x3 pillar squat rack (the "S-1" by a major manufacturer spelled similar to rouge). The other brand has been out of spotter arms for at least 8 months. Happy to find another USA manufacturer.
Put these on my r0gue s2- never heard of Burli till I needed spotter arms. They do the job and mine go on easy. For the dude who got a bad one, I would talk to Eric.
They also come with pins to lock them into place. I dropped 225 from the squat video on to them, and they caught it. The rack didn’t move or shake. The shipping took a while cause they made them fresh, but it was worth the wait. Now I don’t have to go back to the gym and pay membership for sub par equipment.
These things are built pretty damn solid. My only gripe is the quality control could be a little better. I waited over a month for these and when they arrived, one of them fit my rack perfectly and the other would barely go over the upright without beating it on. It turns out that the distance between the back of the spotter arm and the bracket that hooks around the upright is 3-1/8" on one of my spotter arms and barely 3" on the other. I know an 1/8" doesn't sound like much but when the upright is 3" wide and distance between the bracket and the arm is 3" wide it makes for a tight fit. Overall these things are pretty damn solid and serve their purpose so I would still recommend them.
I have been getting better acquainted with my Mammoth Squat, at first I was like a kid in a candy store, trying everything, dips, bench press, SQUATS, now will settle back to more regular strength training. I will say, the folks at Burli were super nice, friendly & helpful before & after purchase. AND during assembly! I assembled on a Sun with a friend, sent a question, and got a response on Sun! Very accessible and a pleasure to work with. I recently purchased the weight stor pegs, which I expect to add some sturdiness for other movements off the rack, i.e. band work, and Landmine exercises. Shipping time was ahead of schedule too. Nothing but positive for this rig, and the people at Burli.
Decided on the Mammoth Squat Stand because I have no need for a mounted rack, and this "stand" provide a pull-up option as well because of the cross bar(s) up top. It is very sturdy (trx movements, band work, and pull/chin-ups have not caused any movement to the stand) , good quality steel and looks nice. I liked that they are local to me (Oregon), free shipping and made to order. It took a few weeks for the order to complete but thats ok since its made to order with their own steel. They had great communication throughout the whole process, even before I purchased anything but had plenty of questions. I think this is a great option for someone who is not looking to lift crazy amounts of weight that requires wall mounted racks, or do swinging things on the pull up bar. Its nice it came with the J-cups.
This is the second thing I’ve bought from Burli, and as with the Mammoth rack, the quality and craftsmanship is second to none. I own equipment from Rogue, Titan, and other companies and they don’t compare. Just look at pics of rogues weight tree vs this one.
Also, I recommend getting it with wheels. I have 425 pounds of plates on it and it’s pretty nice being able to move it around.
This dip bar is a beast! I absolutely love it! Easy to put on and take off my Burli folding rack.
I know it's late but, I finally have the urge to review the item. I have it in the begging of august I abused it at night & my son abused it in the morning & afternoon.. it was well built and great to have at the garage, no need to fold it every time and my 4Runner still fit. I squat & use the spotter at the same time..
Luv the first one we bought, so we bought another !
Now we one at home and one at our second home.

This thing is a beast.. I’m a good way. Top quality, heavy and stellar communication from Burli. Thank you guys SO much
I am so happy with the quality & the add on to my wall rack. Very convenient to install and i don't really have to leave the house to go to the gym. I got everything i need. Thanks Burli for providing me my home gym equipment.
I spent a lot of time trying to find a workout option for home that I could use without taking up much space. I found several options but the Burlifit Hyperfold hit every target I was looking for from price, design and quality. Putting the equipment together we not as hard as I thought since the directions were clear on what was needed and the customer support was quick and surprisingly easy to contact. I can’t wait till they offer some weights and benches to go with this set, I’ll be a longtime customer for sure!
A boring review because there's not much to say, it's just a super high quality stand. Easily a commercial grade piece. Similar form to rouge products so a wide range of accessories and attachments are available too.
Was going to go with Rogue, but ran across the Mammoth Squat stand by Burli by accident. So glad I found this! This thing is built like a tank. From the welds to the powder coat this thing is beautiful! This is as good or better than Rogue and the customer service is top notch! Do not hesitate if you are looking for a squat rack.
Easy assembly, looks really sharp, absolutely bomb proof. This one went a long way to making my home gym look and feel much more polished. Love it!
As title says. Good quality, holds the weight well and is protected where the bar rests.
I bought these to replace some spotter arms for my fringe sports 2x3 squat rack after my movers lost one of them and they fit perfectly with exceptional build quality at any price, but especially for this price (compared to R**** Infinity, etc). Added bonus was them being currently in stock and shipping quickly. My previous arms didn't line up flush with the vertical of the rack even after a replacement set was sent, but these Burli's are perfect. I'll be back for future needs!
Great quality and perfect for my garage. I needed something I can fold and still park my car whenever I needed to and this set delivered on that. I ordered this and was shipped within 1-2 weeks and was pretty straightforward to assemble. I spend most of my nights now in the garage enjoying my mini Iron Paradise
Great customer service. Produced and ready quickly. Excellent quality and built great! Super happy. I can’t wait to buy more stuff from them.
I just left my review on the mammoth rack on the great customer service and product. I also bought the weight stand. Love seeing them add more products and still be keeping up with customer demand and great customer service. That’s not always an easy task. Definitely recommend Burli.
I don’t often write reviews but wanted to share the great experience I’ve had with Burli as there weren’t a ton of reviews out there when I was looking into my purchase. Solid, well built product. Easy to assemble. And the turn around time from my order to being delivered was remarkably quick which is hard to come by for gym equipment these days. Best of all was the customer service. Quick responses to my questions before purchasing and even responded to a question I had about assembly over the weekend. Happy to buy from a small business that takes care of its customers!! I also love seeing that they are adding new stuff to build out your gym. I’d recommend Burli to anyone!
I had been dreading having to plop a giant squat rack in my already-full garage, so when I saw this folding concept, I jumped right on it. I spend a lot of time out of town for work and being able to fold everything away within minutes and pull my car into the garage for long term storage is amazing.
I had a couple of challenges during installation that, once worked through, left me with a perfect setup.
First, I didn't have any wall space on the back wall of the garage, so I had to use a side wall. My garage floor slopes aggressively and my OCD is equally aggressive, so shimming one of the posts wasn't an acceptable option for me. Instead, I took a detour to build a leveling platform that doubles as an olympic platform.
The second challenge I had was that my wall sits on a 3' concrete foundation, so the lower attachment point is about 4.5" forward compared to the higher attachment point. As you can see in the photo, I had to get a bit creative with the lag bolts and stringers, not to mention be very precise with a hammer drill and concrete bolts, but once all the measuring and scaffolding was done, this thing is solidly on there and I'm actually glad I have concrete fasteners for the bottom arms.
The setup originally felt like a lot of work and kind of difficult, but then I had to try to find a barbell and bumper plates during COVID, and got some perspective. Let's just say I was doing pull ups and tuck popups for like 6 weeks (but dang, that pullup bar experience is top notch). And now that I finally have a full setup, it's so nice that I am never going back to a gym again.
Finally, like many other reviewers have mentioned, working with the Burli team from first question to delivery was nothing but fantastic. It is day and night compared to trying to get useful information out of e.g. the Rogue reps, which I unfortunately had to try doing afterwards in the hopes of getting a barbell. If Burli made a barbell and plates I wouldn't even have tried anywhere else.
I hope they expand into other accessories and equipment as the market allows because they are clearly very good at this!
