I'm looking into buying a shrug bar to do traps and dead lift. Any advice welcome. Will Repp.

The Sorinex Diamond bar seems to be popular:

I currently have the cap mega hex trap bar, doesn't fit in a rack, so I just ordered the sorinex diamond bar last week. I don't have it yet, but if I could go back in time I'd buy a trap bar that in my rack the first time around. I plan to review the bar as soon as I get it so I can talk more about quality then.

Don't own one, but was looking at the New York Barbells catalog recently and noticed the Mega Shrug / Hip Bar (http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/im-0063.html). And, while searching for it just now, I see they have another product too, the Shrug Cage with Builtin Stands (http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/1360-wo.html).

Photo of fitness model using the former:

(I won't bother with the greyscale photos of some guy using the shrug cage... :D)

Edit: The fitness model is not using the mega-shrug bar, but (I think), the (IM 0022SHR-O)-Shrug Bar Olympic instead. IMO, New York Barbells has a confusing web site.

Looking forward to that review.
