This bar can’t be beat for the price. It has very little give under 500+ lbs, the ribbed sleeves keep the plates in place, the knurling is aggressive enough for a good grip but doesn’t rip your hands apart, and it truly is a sturdy barbell. My only complaints are that it showed up with some surface rust from the packaging and after just a week of usage, the cerakote is chipping on the sleeves from the plates sliding on and off. Other than those two cosmetic complaints, this bar is a great buy.
Thank you for the review and the feedback. Enjoy all the gainz!
Yours in strength,
