Absolutely loving my bodybuilding bar! The green cerakote and chrome is absolutely gorgeous, and the craftsmanship on this bar is unmatched. This bar is a great all purpose bar. The knurling and thinner diameter make it super solid in the hand, and the triple hash marks make setting up grip width for a variety of exercises very easy. You won't regret getting this bar!
I ordered the bar when there were shortages last year, and they came through quick! The bar has excellent spacing, knurl, and a small amount of whip. Incredible build and value.
I got the Bodybuilding Bar in Red cerakote and I'm very happy with it. I went cheap on all my other gym equipment and got the best barbell possible (for my needs) and I'm glad I did. The 3 sets of rings are super useful, and the knurl is aggressive without destroying your hands. I don't have enough weight to really flex the bar yet, but it does seem to have lots of whip so far. My ONLY concern with this bar is the loadable space on the sleeves. If you were using super thick rubber plates you could definitely run out of room. Stick to iron and you're FINE. I've used several of the Rogue bars and this Texas bar one is by far my favorite.
After using this bar for a month now I love it . I got the Tungsten color looks great and the bar thickness is perfect and the knurling is aggressive but that's what I wanted makes it easier to grip and hang on to. I would recommend this bar for anybody looking for a all purpose bar.
Straight up solid bar. I like the smaller diameter and the knurling is just right. Shipping was fast also, got my bar 2 days after i ordered it.
