These are a mix of new and open-box bars. They are guaranteed to arrive fully functional but may vary slightly from our 1st tier product (non-closeout bars). Minor cosmetic blemishes may present. All sales are final (no returns/exchanges) and there is no warranty coverage. Bars may ship with blank/non-current end-caps. Bar sleeve may or may not include a visible weld. Discounted or free shipping offers do not apply to closeout products. Closeout bars are shipped 3-5 days after the initial purchase date.
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 purchased the close out SS barbell. The feel of the knurling is outstanding. It came with the visible welds, but no logo end caps. There was some very minor scratches on the knurling. I was going to buy a cerekote barbell, but then I saw the close out barbell for sale. My daughter has one and it feels pretty good, but the SS knurling feels much better. For $350, it was a great deal.
Great quality for a price point. Really love the knurling
Cannot imagine anything better . University gym where I go carries American Barbell equipment including bars, but not stainless quality. For my home gym this is an excellent addition. Suggest to combine with plastic end locks from Roque.
Great Barbell and great sales service
