Worth every penny

I debated a long time before purchasing this bar, comparing with others and weighing up the differences. I can honestly say this bar is impressive and well made, you can feel the quality. I just know this will remain a quality bar even after years of hard use. If you want a bar that can cover the three main lifts as I did, then this is the one. Also strength shop service and delivery is always spot on.

A solid piece of kit. The knurling is not aggressive. The thicker 29mm diameter feels great when benching and squatting when compared to 28mm. (I already have the Strength Shop deadlift bar so don't use it for deadlifts.) The plate spin appears limited, but that's fine. Very pleased with this purchase.

Excellent bar at an excellent price

I bought the bar as part of my home powerlifting gym setup last summer, as I was keen to get back into lifting. I was looking for one bar that could be used for all major lifts (I'm not prepared to buy one for each lift... well, not just yet), and this is exactly that bar. Some things I like about it; - Knurling is good and rough, but doesn't feel like a cheese grater - Very smooth sleeve rotation, works very well for power cleans - I prefer a slightly thicker bar, especially for pressing - thickness is spot on. - Build quality and finish are excellent - Bargain price - this bar is well worth the money, and would still be if it was more expensive

Great bar makes me train harder

Got back into training, upgraded to this bar best decision i have made

Superb bar

purchased this bar for our community powerlifting club. Very good. Great knurl. Feels as tough and rough as a Rogue or Texas bar. Only qualm is that the bolts in the sleeve comes loose easily, so I do need an allen key to keep them tight. That being said, I love the bar. Worth the investment
