Performance Training BarOB15-CH-IWF
Made from precision ground alloy steel with a hard chrome coating, this barbell can handle any workout you throw at it. 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.
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. Sleeves rotate around high strength composite bushings used in aircraft and automotive industries for smooth rotation.

You can really feel the difference by spending a couple extra hundred dollars. On top of that, the shipping was superb. I’ve never had to unscrew a package’s container before, which just goes to show how much American Barbell cares that you get your barbell as fresh and secure as possible. Customer service was pretty quick and pleasant too in getting back to me on when my item would be shipped amidst all the orders during the covid pandemic. I went from your average $100 barbell that was said to have a max limit of 300 pounds, to this, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
So far so good, nice and smooth operation, solid, quality barbell.
The bar is excellent and I use it regularly while the gym is closed. The bar was not sufficiently packaged and arrived with a blemish to the chrome on one end where the tube end cap gave way in transit. Tougher end caps are needed, otherwise the packing seemed sufficient.
Love this bar, great spin, feels good in the hand. I’m used to Eleiko everything from my gym that spoiled me, but since SIP I ordered this bar very worried it would not measure up. It does. No, it’s not Eleiko but for less than half the price it is almost there. I’m impressed. Also, it came very carefully packaged coincidentally on my birthday. Very happy with this bar.
Very good product overall
