Great Value For Needed Cable Attachment

While This CAP Barbell item did not have rubber coating on the handles as shown, this is a solid item. Mine arrived with just rubber end caps and an all chrome bar body. The bar functions as it should and is well made for the price. This is the workhorse of most cable attachment exercises. A straight bar is great for seated forward pulling moves as well as seated pull down moves. Standing pulling and push down exercises also work fine. As many know, CAP Barbell makes most of it's goods in China. The item arrived new, yet a bit dirty from the machine shop. Still, this is a heavy duty workout device and is not for show. It would get dirty in a week or less of intense home gym use. I love the bar for my weight stack cable connect exercises as well as using the bar, with a snap hook, on fitness bands. Using any number of cable attachments with fitness bands (jump stretch kind) which one can anchor to all sorts of spaces gives a fast and versatile workout. It is not the same as pulling with a weight stack, yet it is good to mix up your routine. This bar works for that end as well. I tested the bar by hanging it from the ceiling to a fixed point, via the snap hook, and doing some pull ups on it. That is not it's intended use, yet it worked okay. All is solid metal and the bar is well made. It did squeak a few times at first on some seated rows, yet that went away fast. This is not the only attachment you'll need for a home gym. There are many single handle ones and some lat bars and close grip bent, multi grip bar and angled bars etc. That noted, the 20'' straight bar is the basic yet one of the better in effect items to get. All cable pull stations should have one or two. This one is a good price for a good basic bar. I am pleased to have ordered it.
