    The curl bar and a few other specialty bars that are made overseas are still split sleeves. The 32110 is made in Canada and not a true split sleeve, it just has the machined grooves as Dom describes.

    Sorry, I didn't mean from the company US Steel... we have (or had) one of their operations here in Hamilton. I meant the bar stock was from the US.

    If they are both 29mm and the same length, they will bend the same regardless of the type of steel.

    The B&R from York used US steel.

    Does the 2.0 have the same aggressive knurl section between the knurl markers that the original has?

    It is advertised as the same knurl so I'm curious if they carried over the whole deal or just...

    The design is terrible because of (at least) the sleeve movement. I've had more bars than I remember, but have never seen one with play like that. A $300 bar should have a properly fit bushing. The...

    I agree with you now that it is likely not broken. Just a terrible fit/design and maybe some bars are worse than others. I'm still bit surprised York would make this change and think that is...

    Definitely was a shadow.

    I'm no metallurgist but it doesn't look like bronze to me. It just looks like a horribly fit steel bushing. York states their elite bars have "ferrous" bushings that...

    I'd say that is newer based on FNG37's pics. My bar was about 2012 also.

    My guess is the snap ring is a retainer for the bushing, which is not the same bushing as in earlier bars. In the...

    You can see it move with the sleeve in his video. That snap ring itself is doing nothing to hold the sleeve on. Whatever that broken looking disaster behind it might be though. Id see no reason to...

    I ripped apart my 32004 because this was driving me crazy. I know its not a B&R (exactly) but I do recall they were built the same when I had both bars. I truly do not believe the snap ring holds on...

    I just saw that pic. I honestly don't recall my bar looking anything like that... Maybe I am wrong.

    It just means the returns deptarment can print labels to ship out to the next customer. Someone perhaps returned it, and they sent it to you I'm guessing. Still doesn't explain the weird construction.

    Yeah 32006 I guess was the natural name for 32004 + 32002. I don't really know what is going on with your bar. It is hard to tell from the outside but it's clear something is very wrong. That video...

    Whatever that snap ring is holding also seems to have a gap or be broken @ the 7:00 position. Strange bar.

    I've torn the bar down and don't recall any snap rings, but it has been a few years. I'm not sure how you would get the sleeve off in the case you are suggesting, but I've had the sleeves off....

    That was a cheap bar. That's why I destroyed it, and it was pretty damn straight in the end compared to its former self. In fact, I think I was better than it was new. It was very easy to bend. I'd...
