The grip on the knurl is great. Flex of the bar at 27mm is very nice for pulling. It's an attractive bar to the eye with the ribbed sleeves.
However, the sleeve length is not very long, so some users my run out of room using bumper plates. Personally, i find the knurling to be a little short for my setup, as my grip wants to be at least a finger or more outside of the knurled area, making me either pull with a narrower grip than I'd like, or grip with some of my hand on the smooth.
Thanks for the review. We are glad to know that you are happy with the trap bar and we also appreciate the feedback. Again, thanks for the review. Have a great day!
