For myself, dips are a sure fire way to trigger shoulder issues. In the last few years I programmed them twice and twice I ended up having to (self)rehab my shoulder(s) for the next 4 months.
Maybe it's my form. I could be going to deep or leaning to far forward. Even if this is the case, I am not interested in experimenting with trying to fix it. The risk simply does not out weigh the reward.
IMO, there are other legit exercise options you can do that work the same muscle groups just as effectively, but with more easily mitigated and managed risks.
Just my opinion.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
