    Are MAG (Maximum advantage grip) grips really that good?

    For quite some time i'm hesitating to buy the Prime or the MAG grips for my homegym, both is too much.

    I noticed that the MAG grips have a lot of positive user reviews, actually every review is a 5 star review. I didn't try to leave a review, but i can imagine that MAG is filtering only the positive 5-star reviews for their website.

    However, maybe i'm mistaken and are these grips really top notch. Hence, what is your experience with them? Are they really that good, are they significant better for your joints than the normal ones? And if so, which ones would you recommend to buy?

    Close Grip Neutral: Approx 5 inches wide (13cm), 5lbs (2.3kg) in weight

    Close Grip Pronate: Approx 5 inches wide (13cm), 5lbs (2.3kg) in weight

    Close Grip Supinate: Approx 5 inches wide (13cm), 5lbs (2.3kg) in weight

    Medium Grip Neutral: Approx 22 inches wide (56cm), 7lbs (3.2kg) in weight

    Medium Grip Pronate: Approx 22 inches wide (56cm), 7lbs (3.2kg) in weight

    Medium Grip Supinate: Approx 22 inches wide (56cm), 7lbs (3.2kg) in weight

    Wide Grip: Approx 38 inches wide (97cm), 12lbs (5.4kg) in weight

    After using my knockoffs for a good while I 100% agree. They are nowhere near as nice as the MAG's, both the quality of the material and overall balance. However I will say the close grip pronate attachment has ended up being my favorite, it's a little closer to feeling like a MAG attachment and it works for both pronated and supinated grip. Out of the knockoff set I sold the long pulldown and supinated close grip, so the three I kept ended up being $30 a piece which isn't hateful. As for MAG's in general, I don't think they are as life changing as some make them sound, but they are certainly some of the best attachments made IMHO.

    I have 4 MAGs and the Prime RO-T8 handles and spreader bar. They're all great. I've sold off most of my other generic chrome grips/bars/handles. The Primes are a bit longer, and people complain that on shorter equipment they're too long. What are you planning on using these with?

    I've had the close grip one for years. Used to bring it to the gym with me before I built my home gym. Love it.

    It takes some of the pressure off your fingertips and moves it to the palm of your hand, so it's kinda like using straps without actually using them.

    They have a textured surface too which also helps with grip.

    I used them at a commercial gym a few times and my buddy has a couple of them. They're nice, but not the life-changing attachments they purport to be.

    The medium neutral isn't my favourite, for neutral pulldowns I prefer a conventional neutral grip bar. The two other medium MAG's and the wide grip are all excellent.

    Based upon all of the recs on this forum I first bought medium prone, then bought medium supinate (my favorite), wide which I rarely use, and the close neutral which I like but not sure it adds much for me compared with my traditional close grip handle.

    Is the Medium Pronate and Supinate grip comparable with the Prime 4N1 Pronate and Supinate position?

    Considering that the MAG grips are 2 inch wider than the Prime 4N1 handle.

    Love them. Wide and medium supinate are my staples. Great feel and ergonomics. Medium Supinate is a unique movement - really a best in class piece. Feel on wide for me is great too. As mentioned above the grip and palm involvement lets me handle weights I might have to wrap for a normal chrome wide attachment. Of note in home gym's the grip angle on wide cuts about 10" of width off a generic attachment so...that let's you get 5" closer to a wall for your machine placement (made a major difference for me).

    I have some close grips (neutral/pronate) as well...I don't use them and prefer a generic row handle..range of motion seems constricted for conventional rowing movements. Have not tried them in pulldown form.

    Yep, they certainly live up to their name...I'm only echoing what the majority of other regulars here would recommend as well when I say that I have and recommend the wide pronate and medium supinate.

    If getting two then I would personally start with one of the two pronates (wide, or medium) and the medium supinate to get the best of both variations of grips and if getting one to try, then you can't go wrong with any of the above three choices...but the medium supinate stands out as the more unique variation of grip, while the wide pronate gives a more traditional wide grip lat bar feel with grip give of course not being a factor and medium pronate is sort of similar to wide, but a slightly narrower version of attack on the back and perhaps more, or less comfort depending on your build...for me the wide pronate is best out of those two.

    I totally agree, those two handles get used almost exclusively, I do occasionally use the medium pronate on cable rows and the narrow handles look great on my gym wall, just gathering dust.

    You won’t regret it.

    These bars really allow power to build up and beat the ish out of lats with volume.

    The medium pronate is still my favorite, even worked great as a deadlift/RDLS attachment on my belt squat.

    Same for me, but looks like they are back online! Scared me for a while, wondered if they went under due to COVID.

    Wide and medium pronated on the way! Hopefully I like these better than the knockoffs.

    I suspect the wide handle may take a little getting use too, but IMO it's well worth persevering with this one.

    When I first received it I wasn't too enamoured, but I stuck with it and now apart from the medium supinate it's my favourite.

    Agree with DVO, think you will like these alot better. In fact, I just placed my order to replace the medium pronate I sold with my pulldown during the pandemic for profit. I'm going to sell off the second medium grip knockoff version to offset some costs.

    Strongman stuff beats the crap out of my biceps/elbows and the medium neutral grips on the knockoffs were aggravating something. I don't have any problems with a normal lat bar with a pronated grip, so I'm hoping these are a little more comfortable.

    I really only ordered it because I thought I *might* want to try it in the future and it only added $2 to the shipping cost vs $20 if I decided to buy it later. Spending an extra $75 now to save $18 later is definitely some Gear Acquisition Syndrome math.

    I have a more general question about the MAG grips, i've read that the knock offs did have a 'chemical' smell. How is that with the real MAG grips?

    My first order smelled like fresh baked chocolate cookies. Second like cup cakes.
    But seriously, I don’t recall any issues. And with all of the posts I did use my wide grip yesterday. Was ok, don’t think it’s good for my shoulder. Longish arms with narrow shoulders makes for bad angle for me.

    My MAG arrived today, you'd have to stick your nose directly to the attachment to smell anything at all, and it doesn't really smell like anything. The knockoffs are pretty close, you're not going to smell them during use. Comparing the quality there is a definite difference, the MAG attachments are more firm and the coating feels more durable. I'm going to keep the close grip knockoff but I'll probably end up selling everything else. It was worth a shot, at least the close grip pronated is a keeper IMO.
