Has a nice knurl and spin, vast improvement over my previous bar. It's a keeper.

Knurling is good for a training bar. Handles weight well. Nice bar for the price.

Knurling is a good depth for maximum grip and the center knurling certainly helps keep the position of the bar during squats. Bar is stable and does not rotate too easily when under load so is good for benching as well. All round good bar.

I have had the bar a few months now. Has been loaded up to 400kg for squats, and about 350 for deadlifts. It handles it well. The knurling is superb for deadlifts It has a bit of flex at higher weights, which again is good for deadlifts but squatting is a bit more of a challenge, just need to wait for the whip to settle. But as a 28mm bar this will happen.

This is an awesome Powerlifting bar and its affordable. The way its been machined and the knurling is just done so professionally. An Eleiko bar was something I was dreaming about getting but I realised I need something decent to use in the meantime to get me up to a competitive level. This bar has exceeded my expectations.

For the price, and what is available in nz this is a good option. Have not been real heavy yet. But it is performing well. A lot stiffer than my volt bar

I was looking around for a powerlifting bar under $600 that I could purchase and would meet my home gym training requirements. It was a choice of another bar or this bar and I am very glad I purchased this bar. Was loaded to 320kg over the weekend and no issues. Extremely pleased with this training bar.
