Not bad, definitely not good
on 1 June 2014
The product was delivered over 5 days by 2 different couriers and came with a 28 pound surcharge as I live in N. I. which wasn't mentioned. The bar with collars weighs 18kg, not 20kg as stated. The bars sleeves rotate on a 28mm shaft, with brass bushings, I had to remove these sleeves, one was 28.2mm inner diameter, the other 30mm!(may not sound like much but prevents uniform rotation) I was able to make and replace this bushing myself but beware if you don't have access to a machine shop.
The positives are the price and the plates which are impressive, as for the bar, I guess you get what you pay for, if it wasn't for the hassle, I would have sent the bar back on weight discrepancy alone.
