Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

Hexbar question

For anyone who may have tried it, I was wondering about modding a hexbar. Would it be possible to replicate the aesthetic of an open back bar by sawing off one side, and still maintaining the bar's weight capacity? Or would it weaken it? Open back tends to be kind of an expensive feature in bars,...
