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

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. A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

Vulcan Strength Stainless Steel Power Bar & Calibrated PL Plates

I just left Vulcan's facility and I was able to see their new calibrated powerlifting plates as well as the new stainless power bar. I have to say, I am more and more impressed with what they are doing. The stainless bar is really nice looking and the knurl is fantastic. It's aggressive, but...

Vintage Iron Thread

Hi All, I read a post a few weeks ago in which SnowOne and DonForeman suggested a vintage iron thread to discuss/identify old plates. I wasn't part of that discussion, but I see that no one has created the thread, and I have a couple of plates that I could use some help identifying, so I figured...

Dear Chris duffin

Kabuki Strength Power and Squat Bars

Kabuki has been hinting at their upcoming power bar for some time now and they just recently announced that they will be releasing a squat bar along with it. A little bird told me (i.e. the Kabuki CS lol) that the pre-order for both should go live either late this week or early next with a 12...

Dissapointed with my Rogue R-3BT QC and delivery

Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was under the impression that Rogue's DNA as a company revolved around premium QC, quality and delivery. What I received last night is not something I would have agreed to buy brand new in real life. Used, absolutely, but not new. In a store, I would have...

Good day all, Forum Newbie here. I was wondering if anyone had experience with the Tonic Performance brand racks. The Half rack looks very sturdy (2X3 11AWG). The J pegs and safety arms are quite robust. My only gripe is regarding the hole placement. 3 inches between holes doesn't allow for...

Anyone know any deals on trap bars (hex bar)?
