I really dig these mini farmers handles, so much so that I bought a 2nd set for my home gym after buying one for my work gym about 6 months ago. The pros: super cheap way to try out farmers carries, easy to balance setting up weights, small form factor.
The cons: for some people with narrower shoulders these can bump their thighs pretty badly. Also when I go more than about #125 per hand they tend to bump into my legs as well.
It's amazing how Titan makes such quality stuff for so much cheaper than anyone else. My gym is loaded with their equipment. These farmer walk handles rock. Bumper plates slide on no problem, great quality. Love walking with these. Highly recommend these.
Just recieved the today. Took them for a test drive and they feel great!
Just gave them a little test run and they work as intended. My Rogue Echo bumpers took a little coercing to get on but they fit. True test is to see how long they hold up, but so far so good.
Just picked these up and love them so far. Limited space in my basement makes it impractical to use conventional farmer walk handles, but the small footprint of these allows me to do this exercise.
The welding on these actually looks good. Much better than typical Titan products (Not that Im dissatisfied with any of them!)
You can fit 5 plates on each handle if you are using a low profile (spring) collar. 4 plates for OSO style collars.
Another big benefit of these handles over traditional farmer walk handles is you dont have to keep them balanced front to back. I only have 6 45 lb plates in my gym. I am able to use all of them on these handles whereas I would have only been able to use 4 on traditional farmer walk handles due to the need to keep it balanced.
Powdercoating is nice. Smooth and consistent, not blotchy. A small amount of powdercoat found its way onto the plate sleeve. Doesnt matter to me but seems the sleeve could be better masked off at the factory.
Highly recommend this product!
I have full-size top load farmers but the size means I can only use them outdoors. These mini bars act as a complement to the full size ones: I can train indoors and focus more on going longer and in more figure 8 loops. I also add fat grips to the handles so I can increase the challenge without needing to add more plates. If you have Olympic plates, I can’t see anyone who trains having an excuse for not adding this in their arsenal at this price. They also work way better than farmers with dumbbells.
I wasn't sure how these were going to feel in the hand given that the handle is centered over the weight, and the weight can extend out past the handle, but with two 45 pound Crumb Bumper plates on each (around 95-100 pounds per), they're fantastic. They dont bump into my legs like kettlebells or dumbbells, and I think once I get some steal plates on these they'll be even better. Super compact, don't get in the way, great product.
