This is virtually the same barbell as our competition spec. Stainless Bearing Bar just with a bushing system.
The bar shaft is made from precision straightened stainless steel. The strength of the shaft is tested with every shipment of raw material to ensure we have a consistent 190,000 PSI tensile strength. This attention to detail also allows for excellent whip and long-term performance of our bars. Stainless Steel offers superior corrosion resistance and can always be cleaned and repaired with no damage to the surface. Additionally, knurling set in stainless steel has a one-of-a-kind feeling that cannot be achieved with other finishes.
The bar sleeves are precision welded to eliminate failure. The weld is recessed to not interfere with plates resting flush against the sleeve collar. Each sleeve is coated with hard chrome for protection against dropping.
This is an ideal choice for those looking for a multi-purpose precision barbell that will last through the ages.

I have owned this bar for about 6 months. I use it probably 5 to 6 times a week. At our gym we have Get Rxd bearing bars and rogue Ohio bars for comparison. I immediately notice the knurling and feel of this bar. All I can is, lifting with this bar is pure joy. The grip is amazing, I dont run back for chalk, it spins super smooth and drops dead. When I drop over head with bumpers it makes no noise. The Get Rxd and Ohio bars sound like train wrecks in comparison. If this bar is in your budget, you surely wont regret it. I also own a different brand bearing bar, and the smoothness of this bars rotation is much preferred than the free spinning of my bearing bar. Overall, I have no regret in purchasing this bar.
I can use this for anything. Spins perfectly under load. Stainless feels great in the hand, it’s quiet and a summer of Japanese humidity hasn’t affected the finish in the slightest. Will definitely buy again.
This barbell is a work of art. American steel, American made. The feel of the knurl is incredible. I had been using an Iron Grip bar at the gym, with a hard chrome surface. This is substantially better. The thickness and the way it sticks to my hands have made deadlifting much better. The whip is great right out of the box. This bar is the Mercedes of all Olympic barbells. Packaging was 10/10, customer service is of very high caliber. Rogue, who? Glad I cancelled my order with them after being treated with lack of respect and chose American Barbell. Cannot recommend them high enough.
Nice bar, quick delivery
