    No high handles and shipping is $172 to me. Unfortunately that's a hard pass. Also guessing no knurl. Seems like something they'd mention up front.

    My hex bar has high handles which I have never used. The $172 shipping and especially no knurling are still deal breakers though.

    The Rogue TB-1 is probably the better way to go for a facility that wants to have the equipment needed to duplicate the ACFT.

    I think it may have knurling, now that I read the army test info a little more.

    I've been working back from a lower back injury for a year and high handles are helping. Hope to get to low and eventually straight bar again, but it's great having the option.

    +1 on the raised handles. Those are a must for me, but even if I stopped using them tomorrow I can flip the bar over and it's as if they don't exist. I like having the option either way.
