DEADLIFT ACADEMY from MADISON, WI– Verified Buyer
We got this 32-mm bar from York together with the 28-mm bar from Troy. This one has ended up used mostly for pressing (bench and shoulder) exercises, while the Troy bar is more universally used for other lifts, primarily due to the thickness. That said, even if the two bars were the same thickness, this one appears to be of lower quality, so I doubt it would stand up as well to the rigors of heavier lifts and harsher treatment. The sleeves are showing small patches of rust in places I wouldn't expect (i.e. spots that don't come in contact with either sweaty hands or harsh plates). That said, it's a pretty good bar; the bearings haven't given any trouble, and it hasn't deformed. It is the less expensive of the two, so I suppose you do get what you pay for. In any case, you won't find too many 32-mm bars that are of better quality out there.
