Very fast delivery, product seems good.
on 28 April 2014
Ordered on thursday morning, delivered friday morning, in years of online purchases, this is quite rare, especially on standard delivery !
Two reasons why only 4 stars are:
-In the Q&A it says the bar weighs approximately 15kg, but that weight may be taken from the 6 or 7 ft versions, because with both collars on the bar, mine came in a bit above 9kg, what i really hope is that the 200kg rating stated in the Q&A is correct, but the bar seems solid so i'm not too worried.
-Although i really don't care about that, i think other people might expect better. The packaging was very minimal, it was all just wrapped in one layer of cardboards taped together, and the bar doesn't have quite a spotless, brand new looking finish, it's a bit dirty on the ends and there are a few little scuffs and scratches, but again, the bar seems solid and no structural damage seems to have been done, it's only the looks, and you could clean and polish it if that's your thing, but i'm just going to use it to lift weights
Overall, don't expect luxury, but at this price i am very happy to have a solid looking 5ft bar (not much place in my home so 5ft is the perfect size for me) that was delivered so quickly and at this price, i do recommend this product, although none of the weights i've ordered with it have arrived, so i can't tell you what it stands up to, but 200kg seems about right.
