    Different Type of Curl Bar

    Hello Group: I have attached pictures of a curl bar that has rotating handles. I'm not sure who manufactured it...the person I bought it from didn't know either and seemed to think he had gotten from the Ferrigno's equipment store in New York City (if anyone knows who may have manufactured it I'd like to know-maybe it was Ferrigno). It's a solid bar-the handles aren't flimsy at all. When I've used it if kind of feels like I'm using dumbbells. I think it's a cool bar-it gives me a little more variety.

    Thank you for the I.D. of bar...I did a quick internet search and found out what I have is a Gaspari Bar or something close to it.

    brutus beat me to it.

    i saw one of those on the local craigslist, the reply to my email said the handles were "rusted" and wouldn't spin. by the time i replied again asking if i could check it out, it was gone. i think it was listed for $25 or 30.

    looks cool.

    I paid $45 for mine...not a great deal compared to what I paid for other equipment acquired. But I think because I had never seen the bar before and I had the cash in my pocket I made an impulse purchase (the guy I purchased from had some other equipment/weights for sale but the pricing on a lot of his stuff-as nice as a lot of it was-was more than I was willing to pay-besides the Gaspari Bar I got a Sissy Squat made by All Body Training and a Ferrigno Plate Tree that I was happy with). At least the bar seems to to work the way it should-the handles rotate very smoothly.

    i think you paid a fair price- it's not something you see all the time. i would have paid $30 for the rusted one, so yea.

    ferrigno stuff is popping up on here a bit lately, i've seen some on ebay within the last few months, too. pics of the sissy squat?

    you can find the bar on ebay

    Do a search on ebay for "revolving handle curl bar" - there are a few listings - many in stock

    can someone embed the pic? I can't open pics on here, the filter at work qualifies bb.com as porn...

    See above.

    Another one to look at is the Troy SupraBar Curl Bar:



    I have the cable machine version of this bar. Here are a couple of photos from my Ironmaster Preacher Curl Review thread:





    (I took that latter shot to show a problem with interference between the bar and the plates, but it's also a pretty good shot of the bar in action.)

    I guess it depends on the file location, one of your embedded pics is visable to me, but the OP's show as attachments and the rest of yours are empty text boxes.

    I would guess that the image from Troy's site is visible to you. The others are all hosted by bb.com.
