Nice bar with first class fit and finish and the knurling is just right. Quality piece of hardware and gets an 11/10 for value. Seems like most things made today are cheap junk but this bar is tight and feels like heirloom quality steel in the hand. Will be telling my friends about it.
I use different bars depending on the type of lift but this new SS bar is the best all around bar in my collection. The knurling is perfect. I’m sure I’ll be using this bar for a long time.
Works well for all of my lifts
I'll admit that I don't have any experience with other quality bars. But coming from a cheap box store bar to this one is night and day. I had progressed enough to where I was ready to start using chalk and/or straps to keep a grip on my cheap bar and was really struggling to keep it under control squatting. With this bar I'm not there yet. The knurl is great, really amazed at how much more control I have with this bar, especially in the squat. Thanks to RIP and the crew at TPB for a great bar!
