Ghost Strong Return Roller J-Cups 2.0 - Monster

Manufactured by Rogue

We have partnered with the team at Ghost Strong to develop this exclusive Rogue-manufactured version of the Return Roller J-Cup 2.0. Our design keeps all the key features of Tim Grissel’s innovative original, including the patented conical rollers and multi-radius concave receiver that ensure each barbell returns to the front of the J-cup in an optimal position for the next lift. The only changes involve practical production upgrades in two different formats: Standard and Premium.

All versions of the Return Roller J-Cup 2.0 can comfortably accommodate barbell shafts ranging from 1” (25 MM) to 2” (50 MM) in diameter. The compact design makes it less likely that an athlete will make accidental contact with the J-cups when benching or squatting, and the roller feature enables much safer and easier centering of the barbell prior to lift off. 

Ghost Strong’s original threaded pin attachment and 1/2” thick backplate have been upgraded to a fully welded, reinforced pin with a complete channel (including the front lip, bottom, and backplate) made from a single piece of 3/8” formed steel. In addition, for our premium model, we swapped the original zinc-plated pins with stainless steel–making these the first Rogue J-cups to use that material.

We have continued to use Ghost Strong’s extra-tall backplate design (complete with Ghost branding) to give athletes a large target to hit when re-racking, and every clasp is still tested to meet Ghost’s strict tolerances, ensuring a tight, secure fit on a 3x3” upright. All welds are filled in to prevent any sharp edges, and an extra piece of UHMW plastic has been added to the front lip of each cup to protect the barbell–this is in addition to the UHMW that Ghost has always included for rack protection on all three sides of the clasp.

Important: This version of the Return Roller J-Cups is paired with a set of 1” mounting pins, making them compatible with any Rogue Monster Series rig or rack. This same design is also sold separately with 5/8” mounting pins for use with Rogue Monster Lite units.

Key Features of the Return Roller J-Cups 2.0

Ghost Strong’s Patented Roller
1

Ghost Strong’s Patented Roller

Compared to the wider landing area of a traditional J-cup, roller-style J-cups are designed to immediately catch and guide a racked barbell into a more narrow, secure position, preventing unnecessary jostling of the cup or friction on the bar. Ghost Strong’s design, devised by Tim Grissel, goes even further than other roller J-cups on the market, as the patented conical rollers and multi-radius concave receiver ensure each racked bar returns to the front of the J-cup in an optimal position for the next lift, with reduced risk of accidental contact during a workout and much easier centering of the bar before lift off. Rogue has adapted this design with several new manufacturing upgrades to produce one of the most precise and dependable J-cups on the market.

Customizable Design
2

Customizable Design

There are a range of customization options available with the Return Roller J-Cups 2.0. At an added cost, the standard composite roller can be replaced with the Premium model and its extremely durable Silicone Carbide Coated Steel roller.* The standard texture black finish can also be upgraded to a premium medium gloss finish in nearly a dozen different colorways; great for matching the J-cups to a gym’s existing color scheme (all color finishes also come with a stainless steel pin rather than powdercoat). 

*Please Note: The steel roller is built to last a lifetime, but it will gradually wear the knurling of barbells more than the composite option.

Perfect fit and finish
Quality control on my set was spot on. I have no significant gaps at the top, they fit snug on my RM3 without any side-to-side movement, and the white powder coat looks great. They were extremely well packaged and even came with a QC checklist.
Yes, I recommend this product

Perfect in more ways than one!
I was in a bit of uncharted territory ordering these for a non-Rogue rack. I took a chance and am more than pleased with the investment. Not only do they fit absolutely perfect, they are an exact match on color. Thank you Rouge!

Inconsistent Rack Fit
I have two of these with my RM-6 Monster Rack 2.0; one fits snugly and is also not too difficult to remove. The other *barely* fits on and requires an extreme level of force to remove and adjust. Overall not thrilled with the quality control or lack of adjustment to resolve this for the price these go for.

Wish the tolerances were more consistent
I wish the pair was more consistent in the tolerances. One of the jcups is SUPER tight fitting (almost too tight, have to put full body weight on it to snap it into place) while the other jcup is extremely loose and sagging - check out the differences in the photos. Also wish the powder coating was a bit more durable, nicked it against the bar and the coating flaked off in that spot.
Loose fitting, look how large that gap is
Zero gap and tight fitting

Just short of the mark but not far off
My standard for a premium set of roller j cups is quite high. Functionally I'm pleased with the product but it fell short in the sense that they use sticker logos. I've only been using the j cups a couple months and the sticker already looks like garbage. Very aggravating

Great J-cups - fit tight and roll nicely
I bought the version with composite rollers and they work very well. An aggressive knurl on a Texas Power Bar chews them up a bit. The Ohio Bar doesn't chew them as bad. I much prefer to eventually replace a set of rollers over having bars ground down by steel rollers.

Uneven Fit
I bought these for my RM-6 and one fits really nicely. Unfortunately, the other is not tight to the upright. Disappointing that they fit unevenly.
