Bar arrived in less than two weeks from placing order. Packaged with expert care (the bar tube is iconic & not discarded).
Bar exceeded my expectations in both presentation & quality.
Had it for several months now and I've ran it through alot- And it performs flawlessly. The bare steel is amazing in the hand. I keep it up with a stiff nylon brush/ 3&1 oil removing chalk every two weeks. The smaller diameter and whip of this bar is probably my favorite aspect. The added rings do help with centering on different exercises.
Can't say a single negative thing as of the date of this review.
TPB is a great company and their history and message they send out is one I fully support.
My barbell is a first class barbell great quality.
The shipping was super fast, received in 3 days from order date
I am picky about lifting bars, this one is awesome! I will be honest... it took me about a week to get it out of the package as the cardboard was really thick and it kept getting stuck - but at least I knew it was well protected!!
Great bar, love the feel and feels solid. High quality bar, I am sure it will last me a lifetime.
I really like pressing with this bar. I prefer a thinner bar diameter and the 27mm feels nice, but doesn't whip like a dl bar. The knurling is more aggressive than I expected, it feels exactly like my TPB. All in all I am very pleased with this bar.
