Rogue Fitness, they are not cheap but they have good quality stuff I heard.

Strongman

Another one worth checking out Super Yoke - Steel

The best would be to call a local blacksmith or welding shop or something like that and just explain what you want. They will charge you little but material costs since its not much job really building a simple yoke. We got ours that way and its great.

Depends on your strength level, budget, and level of dedication.

Rouge IMO is marketing, you don't need all that extra crap for a yoke to get its Capacity: 750LBS working weight is pretty lame as a top weight. Out of Super Yoke I would say the economy yoke is the best bet but will wear and tear after a year if you mega load it as I and my fellow members have.

Bigg Dogg Strongg has the best equipment hands down as its used in all the pro shows and their yoke start off is 600lbs unloaded, but for a beginner that might be too much:

Sorry, been away eating as much as possible the past couple days. I had a yoke made at a local welding shop. Top weight of around a ton. Ronnie Shew knows his craft. Cost me $425.

pitbull strongman makes an adjustable yoke for about $375 shipped. You can find him on facebook. I have used it many times and its a solid piece of equipment.
