Love this bar
this is the second bar for my wife, she has one at home and now one at the gym, she loves the knurling and the feel of the bar, plus how the bar moves.

I purchased this barbell for my wife, after she used mine, she loves this, now the only problem is that she makes me take it with us if we decided to workout at another gym.

great bar
This is the 6th American bearing bar that I have purchased and in my opinion, it is at least equal to or better than any other bearing bar out there. The action is very smooth and the knurling is excellent. I also like the SS verses the chrome plated version of some of the others. I've been lifting for 54 years now so I've seen many different bars in my time and I love this one the best. The outstanding feature is the bearings, having both inner and outer races.

The bar showed very quickly, packaged extremely securely, in fact, it was a ***** to get out, which I was very pleased by! The bar itself is magnificent. A perfect knurling such that it doesn't absolutely destroy your hands like a brand new Eleiko, but also enough so that chalk is unnecessary. The spin on the bar is better than any other bar I have personally used, which includes several top of the line training and competition spec bars. Being used to some lesser performing bars. The best bar I have used, and is absolutely worth the price!

I have only had this bar for a week now. I have to say...I'm so happy I pulled the trigger and went with this bar. I read a ton of reviews/videos before deciding on this one. I put 45's on the bar in the rack and gave them a spin. The spin is awesome! I had to stop them, they spun for so long! Knurl is perfect. The craftsmanship is perfect! Packaging is like Fort Knox! If you decide on this bar you will not be disappointed!

Great Training Bar!!
I have recently started Olympic Weightlifting and decided I should own my own equipment. I read all the reviews for all the barbells on the market today, The American Barbell Performance Bearing Bar had one of the best reviews from professional athletes and coaches. I started using one of those used and abused bars in the gym and struggled to learn technique. As soon as I started using my new bar, my technique improved and I am able to learn proper lifting form. I highly recommend this bar as a very good training bar for beginners and experienced lifters, my coach loves this bar and has decided to get one for himself.

Best purchase this year!
I developed a love for oly lifting about 6 months ago. My coach suggested I buy this bar after he knew I was serious. This is the best purchase I've made this year. I'm still learning a lot about lifting but the best way to describe the feeling of the bar is to compare it to a knife going through soft butter! Amazing

Training bearing bar
love the knurl and whip about the bar. Knurl is grippy but does not beat up on ur hands at all. I prefer over eleiko training bar, dhs, pendlay and rogue bar. Love it. Only downfall wish it had center knurl for squats and heavy jerks

So far, so great.
I needed a new barbell and had the good fortune to use these at Waxman's Gym on holiday last year. I loved the barbells and after comparing price points with a few other bearing barbells decided these American Barbells are every bit as good, if not better, for the money. So far this bar is on par with any other I've used in a competitive or training environment and I'm very glad I made the purchase. The knurling is great - not too aggressive but not too soft unlike some WerkSan bars I've used that will eat your hands up. The spin is precise and it just feels like a good barbell. Time will tell of course but as of now, this has been one of the best investments I've made and I would recommend this bar to anyone looking for a new barbell.
