Resistance Types:

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

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.

Mounting Plates

The Monster Lite version of the Slinger can be installed ONLY on Rogue Monster Lite Racks . 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.

Loading
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.

Loading
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.

Loading
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.

Loading
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.

Scutinize compatibility, it is not plainly obvious
Whereas it claims "The Monster Lite version of the Slinger can be installed ONLY on Rogue Monster Lite Racks", it is not compatible with the Flat Foot Monster Lite Rack. In order to know this prior to ordering, one would have to expand the compatibility drop-down and know the rack code (RML-390F); compatiblity is not listed by part name. I think Rogue Fitness should make this more obvious, but buyer-beware is the theme. 2 stars because it is a well engineered and built accessory. Just for certain racks.

We try to be clear on the Compatibility section of the Monster Lite Slinger page that this is not compatible with our RML-390F and we're sorry if this was missed. Our team is happy to work with you on getting this returned.

limited range for 90 inch unit
Using it for a few weeks now and it's an overall a useful and space saving addition to the 490C, but if you have the space then go with a stand alone cable system that has more height. It needs the 100+ inch height to allow a full range on several movements and I find it easy to hit the top of the stack's range of motion. The pulleys are serviceable but generally low quality. All of them wobble in rotation once positioned, with one constantly hitting the housing. I'm checking aftermarket now for a quality replacement but these are larger than the standard 90 or 115 mm. I ordered the 300lb weight stack with the slinger and had to dremel out the weight guide rod channels on five of the plates to remove burrs preventing them from sliding onto the guide rods.

Limited Range
Bought this when I upgraded my gym, and it truly saved me a lot of space. Assembly was easy and well explained. The main issue is a wire rope stop sleeve with three hex screws. This unfortunately limit your range of motion on quite a few exercises depending on your height. I’m 6’ and tricep extensions with the rogue handles were cut short at the top. Rogue currently offers no solutions to removing the torqued on hex screws, and also no solution to adjusting the range of the slinger. With the work it took to find a solution, I would have much rather went with a standalone product

ML Slinger w. plate load
All in all for the cost, a very good addition. Positives--a true 1:1 weight, easy to assemble, and arm adjustments are very well designed. In hindsight I would have gotten the weight stack to make changes faster during circuit days, but cost differential put it into the zone of just getting a dedicated cable machine. Also, it would be good if the cables were a tad shorter, or adjustable, but they work fine as is, even in a confined space.
Yes, I recommend this product

Don't drill, dang it!
I've been reading about people drilling to make this fit. I have the slinger. It's perfect. It's not gym perfect, but for a garage or backyard, it's super sweet. So, here's the deal, just call them up and ask to buy the cross member that has the holes that line up with the slinger. Don't drill. I mean, it's ridiculous. I have an old monster lite rig and I just bought one new cross member that has the new specs. No fuss, no muss..

Awesome Awesome Awesome!!!
Background I have a 1940s house so fairly small garage, so I bought a 24" RML-3 rack. So I really wanted to add the slinger for pull downs, etc. The 24" rack is a perfect fit do have to be a bit careful not to step too far back but thats good anyways enough space. So I bought the slinger + plate loader. Both are perfect. The plate loader is big enough to hold 45s so I can get a fairly strong workout out of it. The plate loader is super easy to take off as well so I just remove it if I am doing squats or anything in the rack. Other than that the slinger does not get in the way at all. Highly recommend just remember when ordering to make sure they send you the right crossmember bars you need the ones with holes as well as two at the top bars. But its easy to install. Takes up such a small footprint for the added versatility you get.
Yes, I recommend this product

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!!
Yes, I recommend this product
