Purchased this bar for my wife and I's home gym. We could not initially afford two different diameter bars so we went with this due to the diameter. Perfect compromise. Knurling is great. Good balance of stiffness and whip for squats and deads. Definitely recommend!
Buddy's bars are unbeatable for quality and price.
This is my second Buddy Capps bar - I purchased a power bar right as COVID lockdowns started - AMAZING... I am used to the Texas Deadlift bar, but it is a bit too long for my home gym space. This 27mm fit the bill perfectly - I honestly couldn't be happier. The bare steel and added whip feels amazing. I had several questions before I ordered and the customer service was second to none. Thanks Everyone!
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
