What are the advantages of a Stainless Bar vs. a Hard Chrome bar?
Stainless Steel provides superior corrosion resistance. In Salt spray testing (accelerated corrosion testing) a Hard Chrome Bar shows signs of rust in approximately 24 hours and a Stainless Bar goes beyond 120 hours. The big advantage is the Stainless Bar can be cosmetically touched up as needed if it rusts, where chrome cannot. You may also soften the knurl with sandpaper if desired. Hard Chrome is a non-corrosion resistant coating and NOT desirable in wet or humid environments.

Great Curl Bar
I wanted a durable curl bar that would survive a humid garage gym and mild abuse. Money wasn't an issue so it came down to this or the rogue curl bar. I chose this one because it was the only curl bar I could find that was stainless steel and therefore should be more rust resistant even with some abuse of the surface. The bar came packed better than any barbell I've bought in the past and I could tell the product was high quality. Knurling is subjectively medium-light (compared to powerbars and deadlift bars I usually deal with) - good enough to keep a good grip but not cutting or painful. Overall, I highly recommend it.

I bought this for my home gym and it's so much nicer than anything I've used at my neighborhood gym. The bearings spin super nicely and the knurling is just right: enough grip without the bite.

I'm really surprised this bar hasn't had more reviews. I've used several ez curl bars throughout the years and this bar beats them all. IMO it's by far the best ez curl bar on the market and the price is unbeatable, plus it's made in the USA
