    Pretty fucking nice bar. The knurling is perfect, the sleeves are fluid and have absolutely no "play" in the fitment, and it is stiff as fuck. Huge improvement over my old oly bar.

    I guess my only complaint is that it showed up scratched and had about 3 quarts of machine oil on it. I wiped it down good but still had to wipe my hands and re-chalk after every set.

    Just got it yesterday so I'm looking forward to using it some more...

    my faggot ass gym just bought black leather couches for the lounge area in the weightroom! Who the fuck lounges at the gym??? Meanwhile lifitng any dumbells over 115 pounds is like taking your life into risk! They are so loose and have so much play its ridiculous!

    I did some digging around at my gym and found a 130 and 150lb dumbell upstairs rolled over in a corner. But only one of each. As it is the DB's they have now only go to 100 :(

    DB Snatches are fun. I should try throwing up the 130 sometime.
