Love it
"Great and versatile set- now that I have it, it's a vital component of each of my regular workout routines. Just needs a couple more/heavier plates!"

Highly recommend
"I’m a upper 20 year old trying to get a home gym together. After months of research, I went with the California bar. I lift generally but have been trying oly lifts for the past year for fun, just to see where it goes. So, I needed a great all around bar. I’ve lifted in all kinds of gyms over the years: parents gym, high school, multiple college gyms (football and public) and many gyms post college. This bar is without a doubt the best I have used. Sticky doesn’t even begin to describe the knurl. For 99% of people, this bars limitations surpasses the lifters. Meaning, i can lift comfortably and confidently and know that if I miss a lift I cannot blame it on this bar. That helps sharpen my weaknesses (“the bar/spin/grip is perfect, so what did I do wrong this lift”). Overall, get it. Worth the money. "

Great Bumper Plates
"I got these because they were the cheapest KG sport bumpers from any major brand. I can't compare them to the others out there except on price and they've definitely performed well so far, so I'm very happy with the purchase. The 25kg plate, though, was more like 3.5" than 3.38", so it was in line with other brands instead of being a bit thinner. If you're looking at these, that 1/8" probably doesn't matter much, though."

Great Curl Bar
"I wanted a durable curl bar that would survive a humid garage gym and mild abuse. Money wasn't an issue so it came down to this or the rogue curl bar. I chose this one because it was the only curl bar I could find that was stainless steel and therefore should be more rust resistant even with some abuse of the surface. The bar came packed better than any barbell I've bought in the past and I could tell the product was high quality. Knurling is subjectively medium-light (compared to powerbars and deadlift bars I usually deal with) - good enough to keep a good grip but not cutting or painful. Overall, I highly recommend it."

Elite Power Bar
"I have been using a Mammoth power bar I purchased a year+ ago. I wanted another bar for super set. I could have got another Mammoth, but decided to try Elite this time. Both are of very high quality which I really value (very quiet). I like their secure, but not harsh, grip, but Mammoth and Elite do feel a little differently in my hand. Their secure grip may come from different reasons. Elite delivers direct contact of hand and the bar shaft, while Mammoth's cerakote has more friction than metal. Both are beautiful bars."

Color KG Urethane Plates
"I have had a 140KG set of urethane plates for about a year. To make loading of 100KG easy and also to do super set of DL and BS, I ordered extra two sets of 20KG plates. These plates are really strong, not only internally but externally (plate surface). I accidentally dropped 25KG and 10KG plates from shoulder height down to bare concrete slab. I see no hint on them. These plates are expensive but are quite likely to outlive myself."

Great rack!
"Product is built like a tank—super solid. Everything works perfectly and it takes up minimal amount of space in the garage. Two minor quibbles: 1) The rack measurements online are slightly off. The assembled height is 1” greater (this actually made a difference for me with the clearance I had with my garage door so I had to put the rack in a different spot). 2) American Barbell accessories are very expensive. I ended up going with off brand accessories, which worked fine. Those two things aside it is a fantastic rig."

Pink Cerakote Training Bar
"I bought this bar for my wife. Similar good grip as my Mammoth bar I purchased last year. Spin is also very good for a bushing bar. A very nice bar."

Precision built
"Amazing craftsmanship! Perfect recessed welds, flawless hard chrome on smooth rotating sleeves, zero rattle, Cerakote finish on medium knurl is close to steel feel without the maintenance. Even the packaging is hardy so the bar arrived scratch free. I haven't used enough weight to rate the whip, but I'm so glad I spent a little more to get this great bar. I compared to new Rogue with Cerakote end-to-end, but youtube showed the finish scratching off the sleeves. I think American Barbell made a better choice with hard chrome."

Sweet Barbell
"I was looking for a good bearing barbell for the OL. Narrowed it down to this comp. SS OL barbell vs. the rogue euro bar. It was a tough choice since you can't really physically test either one out unless a gym has both. (Eleiko was considered, but way too expensive and people mentioned the knurl was alittle too rough for repetitive work; also their cheaper sports bar seemed to have lower online reviews compared to the AB and rogue). Vulcan barbell was considered, but it is not made in USA, so was out. I have rogue products (rogue barbell, rogue westside power bar etc. and I like their products). however the stainless steel aspect of this bar and the type of bearings used in the AB is what made me choose this bar over the rogue (it is also cheaper than the rogue euro which was a win win., also the rogue training Olympic barbell has a SS version, but that training OL barbell had lower reviews compared to the euro version) The AB bar is well packaged on delivery. it is a beautiful bar. The knurling is nice. not too sharp, but not passive. it really does just grip you back and is comfortable, easy to hold. the spin of the bar is smooth and controlled. it is hard to explain, but it just rotates as it needs too and not just spin for the sake of spinning. it is almost like the bearings are weighted and spin just enough to keep the center of gravity on the bar. there is absolute no play in the sleeves. you drop the bar with weight, there is just a thump of the bumpers. no rattling of the bar at all. I am very happy with my purchase and have no regrets so far. I'm sure the rogue euro bar is nice, but I definitely do not regret my purchase of this comp. SS AB barbell. I think it is well worth the $$$. "

Great training power bar
"This bar is one of the best bars I have. I would make the argument this is the best barbell to get for strength training, especially Starting Strength. I have always loved bare steel, but tgis hard Chrome is very nice and the knurl seems to have been cut in a way that the Chrome is a non factor. The knurl on this bar is not aggressive; however, do not let that description mislead you, because it still has a great grip. It is less aggressive compared to my B&R 2.0 and especially my Ohio Power Bar, and just as aggressive as my B&R 1.0 bar. While studying it to find out why it still grips so well, it looks like there are more points per square inch. All this means more training can be done without killing your hands, especially thumbs on hook grip. The sleeves rotate well, although not like a "crossfit" bar or weightlifting bar. This is a power bar, so they are exemplary for squats, presses, and deadlifts. If the mission was to take on the famous bar from Texas, I would say mission accomplished."

Top quality craftsmanship and materials used
"This is my fourth bar I've purchased from AB. I have the AB stainless bearing and bushing bars, plus their 5kg H-S technique bar. I have bars from 5 other bar companies: Eleiko, Zhangkong, Rogue, Vulcan and York so I have top quality bars to compare AB bars to and I have to say when it comes to picking a bar to train on it's either the AB SS Bearing bar or one of my Eleiko training bars. My buddy who I train with goes straight for the AB SS Bearing bar so I end up with one of the Eleiko's lol. So when it came time to pick up a rack bar to handle heavy squats, bench presses, overhead pressing, and DL's it was a no brainer to go with the AB Grizzly Power bar. Very affordable for such a top quality power bar. American Barbell definitely puts out some of the best quality bars in the industry!!"

"I bought this for my home gym and it's so much nicer than anything I've used at my neighborhood gym. The bearings spin super nicely and the knurling is just right: enough grip without the bite. "

Very Nice Bar
"The T-Bar is a very good piece of equipment. I wanted a log bar like the strongman competitions use but the price was ridiculous. This works just as well for me and I get the same movement I would have otherwise. Glad I found AB and bought this. Very well made. Attention to detail is obvious."

Absolutely superb bar
"We have a small community of weightlifters at our gym; most of our bars are multi-purpose bars. But we have another very high-end bearing bar from a popular company, and this has proved to be the more popular bar among our lifters. The knurl isn't overly aggressive, but the bare steel gives it a stickiness that you just have to feel for yourself. But what's most impressive are the spin and the construction. The spin is not only buttery smooth, but it's virtually silent. The sleeves don't spin endlessly without plates loaded on, like some bars do; instead, they spin with remarkable smoothness and consistency regardless of the load on the bar. The sleeves even seem to fit our bumpers just a bit more snugly. Interestingly, this bar is also very quiet; in the extension of a ****** or clean, you won't get that "rattle" that you get with other bars—just a consistent vibration. Even when dropped, the bar doesn't rattle. I take that as a sign of a bar made to very high tolerances. Suffice to say that we're sold on American Barbell and plan to purchase many more of their bars for our gym in the future. "
