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...

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.
