Quite possibly the finest made barbell that I’ve ever set my hands on, even surpassing the Rogue Euro bar in terms of overall fit and finish. Performance is on par with the Rogue Euro, making it tied as my favorite barbell. Though it’s pricey, it’s quality and performance make it worth every penny if you’re looking for a higher end barbell. The stainless steel shaft means that this thing is going to be nearly indestructible in the right care. Even at my skill level, lifting with this barbell is pure joy; in the hands of someone more skilled it would be nothing short of amazing.
