If you want a stiff bar to really build your strength, buy this one; this is proof you don't have to pay hundreds of $ for a good bar. Great knurling depth, clean chrome finish, well oiled collars. You can't really ask for more in a bar.
i purchased this power bar for its unbelievable price!! it's a beast with a capacity of 1500 lbs. it is the gem of my weight set!
I've had this bar for 3 1/2 months now and have used it exclusively for powerlifting lifts and variations. It's a great training bar and the knurling, while not aggressive, is fine for deadlifts with chalk. The quality is top notch, and I appreciate the Titan details at the ends. I plan on buying another one shortly so that I don't need to unload the weight for supersets.
Bar came today, looks good, delivered in 3 days, weighed in at 43lbs, knurls is same as my old cap bar. Will use it tomorrow, bottom line its a $99 bar rated for 1500lbs, I mean really $99! you cant lose on this one.
