I don't think a thread like this exists for the barbell, so I wanted to start one. The Olympic barbell is one of the most important purchases one can make for their home gym.

Long term Duffalo Bar use

For those who own a Duffalo Bar that the newness has worn off... How long have you owned it? How often do you still it? Every bench and squat? Is it a regretful purchase, and you wish you had spent the money on something else? Somewhere between?
