    I think it's just another trap bar. I remember many years ago, Perry Rader used to advertise a round one in the old Iron Man magazine.

    I want to buy one but can't find one anywhere online to even buy it.

    I notice you're in Canada,
    A good place to look into is Garage Iron
    http://www.garageiron.com/
    The owner of the business is frequently on this forum and cold probably help you find the Hex Bar you've been looking for

    EDIT- Coincidentally enough he has a Black Widow Training Gear Rack-Able Hex Bar on the front page, Black Widow makes good quality equipment

    What exercises did you do with it? Did it provide any advantages over a conventional trap (hex or diamond) bar?

    Edit: I just remembered a discussion from darkfact's Sorinex Diamond Bar Review. A U-shaped piece of equipment was mentioned there. It's not exactly as you describe, but it may be close. Anyway, it's called a Rickshaw.



    Here's another one made by Edge Fitness Systems:

    Interesting.

    Any particular reason you want this style of trap bar instead of easier-to-find hex bars or diamond bars?
