Not as shown, and hole considerably larger than 1"
on 19 February 2014
The product I received was not as shown. It turns out York have changed the design to look considerably less nice, and make it harder for you to slot weights of different sizes together on the bar.
The hole was nearer 1.2" than 1", and on York's own 1" barbells these wobbled and "ate up" the rubber spacers meaning they required regular readjustment to keep them in place, were probably going to destroy the spacers if I kept using them, and would move during exercises. Hassle and potentially unsafe.
The paintwork and moulding were pretty shoddy in comparison to other York weights I've bought recently.
