Rogue Monster Lite Slinger™

Now available with your choice of either band-loaded or plate-loaded resistance, the Rogue Monster Lite Slinger™ is a rack-mounted cable-pulley system designed to deliver the same training benefits of a traditional Lat Pulldown Machine with better space and cost efficiency. This attachment is compatible exclusively with our Monster LITE Power Racks or the racked version of the Monster LITE Rig 2.0, and comes with adjustable components for set-up on a 90” or 108” unit. *Customers may also choose to purchase Monster Lite 3.0 24” or 43” Crossmembers, which include pre-drilled holes for the cable to pass through. Monster Lite 3.0 crossmembers are required for use with the Weight Stack Slinger and are highly recommended for users who do not want to drill holes in their existing Monster Lite 1.0 or 2.0 crossmembers.*

Warning: Any Rack or Rig utilizing the Slinger attachment must be securely fastened to the floor for use.

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 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 [email protected] for inquiries. The Weight Stack kit includes:

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

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.

Key Features of the Rogue Monster Lite Slinger

  • 1Resistance Band AND Plate Load Options

    The latest version of the Monster Lite Slinger now gives customers the choice of using the attachment with resistance bands (available as a 5 Monster Band Kit or a la carte) or plate-loaded resistance--with a mounted 1.9” diameter loading pin that works with standard bumpers or steel plates. Gym owners who currently have a Slinger with band resistance and wish to change to plates can also order the Plate Load Kit on its own.

  • 2Mounting 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.

  • 3Cable & 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.

  • 4Extension 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.

  • 5Optional 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.

  • 6Get 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 freer range of motion and a more effective workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Added to Monster Lite! Great addition! Great add to the Monster Lite rack. Doesn't take up a ton of space as a dedicated piece of equipment would. Easy install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Great product, its smooth and easy to use. They only thing was I had the other model monster lite rack and had to drill the 2 holes for the cable to go through. Emailed Rogue about where i should drill and they told me its 10 inches from the end of the support bar. Luckily i didnt pre drill the holes before the slinger came. Ive bolted the whole slinger together and measured where the cable would go into and it was at 11 inches from end of support bar. Still a great product just make sure to have product in hand before drilling.
