4.0 out of 5 stars Good upgrade from standard bars 15 Feb 2010
By Osman
The standard 5' bar was too narrow for me to safely use with squat stands so I went searching for a new one suitable for my standard York weights. Amazon had the best prices at the time and the choice was between a 6' bar and this 6'6" spin lock beefy bar.

I decided on the larger bar, as the distance between the inner collars was greatest. I chose my squat stands, Bodymax CF310, as they had adjustable height and adjustable spotter catchers and this meant that with a longer bar I would be able to use the set-up to self-spot for bench, incline and shoulder press when used with my basic York bench.

The bar arrived very quickly even though I chose super saver, and it was very well packaged. At the time the Royal Mail was still having problems, but Amazon had used a different service.

The distance between the collars is 4' and there is 15" for weights either side. (5' bar: 3'1" between collars and 11" either side.) I think the beefy refers to it being a slightly wider grip bar which is good, but I've found the highs of the threaded ends are actually a little lower than the standard bar by a mm or two. I think this is a manufacturing issue (bad batch perhaps) or it's part of the accepted tolerance as the spin lock collars work fine. For me it's slightly annoying as I use 1" spring clips to secure the weights when doing non maximal lifts. Normally these grip the thread very well, but this bar having a slightly narrower thread, I have to angle the spring clip so it rides across one more turn before it gets a good grip. Only takes 3 seconds but it shouldn't be that way. If you choose the non-threaded bar it may not have this petty problem but it wouldn't have spin locks either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good alternative to an olympic bar 28 Feb 2011
By Chris
Good alternative to an olympic bar, I have lots of standard weight discs so this was a much cheaper solution than buying an olympic weights set.

5.0 out of 5 stars 200kg on it so far... 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
Great bar, I know they have put a 150kg limit on this but I have been doing shrugs with 200kg on the bar and although it flexes, there is no permanent bend, so I am confident enough to put more weight onto it when I'm able. Just thought I would let people know, as 150kg isn't a huge amount, and like others I was really hoping to avoid shelling out on an olympic set for a while so I gave this bar a try, good to know that if I ever get strong enough to squat 200kg I can still use this bar anyway!

Squatting 150kg, the bar doesn't budge.
Solid, heavy, good grip.

Great purchase for someone with a large pile of 1" (25mm) plates who doesn't want to purchase Olympic plates (2" - 50mm).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 31 May 2013
By DJM
Verified Purchase
This bar fits nicely in the hands as it close to olympic bar diameter fpr the grip but ends for standard plates with 1inch diameter holes. Capable of lifting much bigger weights than normal standard size home gym bars. I have no problems lifting 160kg regularly on this with no noticeable bending. Highly recommend for home gyms where you want to lift that bit extra and don't have Olympic size bars and discs. I almost had to change my 250kg of weight plates to olympic size for a stronger bar but now I don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and heavy 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase
This works perfectly. It is thin enough to utilise our existing weights, long enough to use on our squat rack and heavy enough to use on its own when toning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade. 22 Jan 2013
Bought this bar as the standard one wasn't long enough for my squat rack and this bar is perfect!

It's solid, heavy (10kg) and the grip on it is excellent, also has loads of room for plates, handy as I have some old vinyl ones.

This is the bar to buy if needing to upgrade!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for me! 26 Aug 2012
By DRAX
Verified Purchase
A great bar for an all around work out. It is slightly thicker than a standard bar grip wise. The threads seem a bit out of sync with the spinlock but I have found they actually lock better!

Good bar, but when you use over 100kg of weight, the bar gets a bit flexible, otherwise an absolute bargain!
