A great new addition to our range, the Bastard Deadlift Bar!

Longer than your average barbell, and more 'flex' than a power bar, as well as no centre knurling and a 27mm shaft. The sleeves have been designed with simplicity in mind to reduce the need for maintenance and to increase robustness. Several Powerlifting federations use a Deadlift Bar in competition, so make sure you are training Deadlift with the correct type of barbell.

Great Bar

I bought one of these for my home gym as I was getting close to the max load of my regular bastard bar. This is my only experience of a Deadlift bar, the 27mm shaft and agressive knurling ensures a solid grip and the whip feels great.

A thing of beauty

Over a year ago I got a standard 20kg bar as part of a set of weights (not from here) which is all I could afford at the time. Has done me proud but my neighbours complained about the noise on deadlift day! I don't lift much but the noise came from the bar itself - the sleeves moving. So treated myself to this. It is absolutely in a different class. Beautifully made, balanced and completely silent! Can't recommend it enough, plus the service from these guys was fantastic.

Very good bar.

This bar is pretty much exactly modelled after the Texas deadlift bar in terms of its measurements (inside shaft length, sleeve length etc.) which means it flexes and whips like one. I didn't think it would differ much from the 2028 Olympic bar I have in terms of flex and whip, but it really does- you can even feel a difference with 60kg, mainly because of how far out the weights are due to the inside shaft length and collar width. The 27mm shaft feels noticeable thinner than 28mm and makes gripping the bar easy. The knurling is sharp, and with chalk it's super grippy. The overall quality is very good and the hardened chrome isn't too shiny, it looks more like aluminium. The description says the rings are 810mm apart but they're actually 910mm apart. Highly recommended.
