    I'm in love with the knurling on AB, that looks very similair to the SPB which I thought was perfect. Is that your first AB barbell?

    Third. I sold one Oly bar (stupidity) and my main bar is an America Barbell Super Power Bar (i missed the cool heated treated one, but have the next version, 28.5mm with a matte stainless finish on the shaft). The Super Power bar knurl feels a little bit sharper and stickier than my new Oly one. Yeah, the SPB is pretty much perfect for all the main lifts. I think I may keep these two AB bars forever. That means a Lot coming from me. (i buy and sell a ton)

    I started wearing a McNeil knee sleeve during squats and sometimes during the day if my old left knee hurts. After a lot of reading I bought a pair of these evolutionize knee sleeves. I slipped one on the left knee, with some effort. Will ad some more comments after some squats in the next few days.

    Inner Strength Products in Saskatchewan had a sale on Wednesday, so I bought a pair of SBD knee sleeves and a slingshot. This was my first order with them. Ordered Wednesday and FedEx delivered them today, Friday. Living on the Canadian West Coast, that's basically the fastest shipping I've had for anything (save for something originating in Vancouver). Pretty happy with that. I would recommend them for any Canadians looking for power lifting gear.

    My wife and I each bought a pair of these a few months ago , got them for $29.95 shipped. We both like them and use them regularly . Highly recommended IMO.

    sold a Rogue Euro bar to pick this one up since it was on sale ($125 off). I prefer the feel of stainless (AB) over chrome (Euro) which is the main reason for the switch. Both are phenomenal Oly bars, of course.

    Congratulations, that's one beautiful bar.

    Collars

    Went to pick up the COT-2.5 collars but also got York and quick lee collars. For the price they were well worth it.

    The York collars are mismatched. The seller had 3 (2 in original condition and one in black) York collars. While the seller was trying release the one of the original ones it snapped. So picked the black one and the other one.

    Higher end Barbells aren't usually my area of covet in my equipment addiction, though i certainly appreciate them.... but damn, looking at that bar gets me tingling Josef! It looks like a piece of tactical military equipment or piece of exiensive surgical equipment! I love that bar and if I was spending some bucks on a new bar and not looking at price, AB is probably the one... good stuff!

    I have had my AB power bar for little over a year now and really don't use anything else (except specaility bars) to lift. Every month or so I might bust out my Rogue Ohio bar, but that is just being lazy. The knurling on the AB bar just feels perfect, not to sharp grips like crazy. All my other bars feel to sharp or smooth now.
