Extremely Sturdy

from Baltimore, MD – Verified Buyer

To put it simply this hex bar gets the job done! It's very solid and will last a very long time. I did notice that if you let it rest up against leather surfaces the paint on the bar rubs off. I left mine leaning against my bench overnight, and came back to a silver line going across the pad. It's not a big deal though, because that seems to be the only surface that it has that effect on. The handles have a nice rough surface to them to allow for a better grip. At times the rough surface can be a bit much especially with heavier weight, but it's nothing a pair of gloves don't solve. It's great for shoulder shrugs and to add some variation to your deadlifts.

Sturdy and good bar for the price. It is now available (11/20/14) for less than $100. If you have rewards it is even less expensive.

from Cranston, RI – Verified Buyer

This bar does the job for trap bar deadlifts. Cannot go wrong for the price Good price. Sturdy bar. Great buy if the price stays below $100 The weight holding collar is short compared to an olympic barbell. Does not hold a lot of bumper plates. For heavy weight you need metal plates. Also handle is welded in a fixed position, some lifters like a hinged handle.

Great quality

from Lansing, KS – Verified Buyer

Hoop is Heavy, as good as the professional gym, does not flex with heavy weight Pros: Great for shoulder shrugs Cons: could stand more knurled grip on handles and perhaps make the grips more beefy in the middle

sturdy bar, great price

from Travelers Rest, SC – Verified Buyer

this is a great bar for deadlifts and farmer's walks. The only drawback to it is there are not "lower" handles. Still you can invert the bar for a really low grip and for the price you can't beat it. I very versatile tool and you can do a lot more than shrugs and deads. I use mine for farmers walks (if you're a huge guy this may not work for you) and I can even do neutral grip standing shoulder presses from inside the ring. Overall a great bar.

Good stuff.

from USA – Verified Buyer

Decided to finally get a hex bar for dead lifts,shrugs,squats.Bar is very sturdy,nice and heavy and should last a very long time.Also use for shoulder press and chest press.Only negative was bar itself came very dirty with scratches on bar.that however takes nothing away from quality of the bar and would defiantly buy again.

The students love to use this bar. Their only complaint is that the handles are pretty tough on the hands.
