Thanks for the review! This bar is near the top of my list for an all purpose bar. Question: how does the nickel/phosphorous coating feel? Slick like zinc? Or does it grip a little better?
It’s much better than zinc for grip, along the lines of a hard chrome unpolished.
Thank you so much for all the reviews, I’m looking to buy a multi purpose barbell and they’re great help!
I’ve got a couple of questions if you dont mind.
How do you think this bar compares to the Eleiko XF bar pricing aside?
I noticed this bar has brass bushings while the Eleiko has bronze. Will that make a difference in lifetime and maintance?
Nevermind! Got a good deal on the Eleiko sport traing bar, so ended up buying that one instead 🙂
How’d I miss that, the Eleiko is a far superior choice! I just picked up their new performance WL bar too!
I’m interested in buying this bar but I don’t see it available on the US website. Where did you buy this bar? Also I’m looking for a weightlifting bar 28mm in this price range. Is there anything you recommend? Thanks a lot, love all the content!
