    Identifying type of barbell

    What’s up guys! I just bought a barbell from my neighbor. It’s a bit rusty, but seems to be in ok condition. I’m trying to figure out what brand bar this is, because it does feel different from my other barbells. I’m thinking it’s a power bar barbells because of the knurling In the middle. Also it just feels heavier, and slightly thicker than other barbells. Another thing I noticed was the very thick collars on the sleeves of the bar. With no name or serial number, I’m having difficulty identifying the brand of this bar. By doing so, at least I’ll know weight capacity to avoid any bar bending in the future. Please help me identify the name brand of this bar I’ll provide some pics. Thanks!!

    If it's a power bar it'll have 2 ring marks on each side of the shaft. The shaft itself would be 29mm since most power bars have a 29mm shaft.

    It's impossible to identify since you didn't include any pics.

    2 rings marks? Most power bars just have 1 that i can think of, cheap brand all round bars generally have double.
    Unless I've misunderstood

    dont worry about bend

    as long as the barbell is full weight and is iron/steel and not aluminum and it isint being used at a commercial gym, you dont have to worry about bending unless you are redicualsly strong like larry wheels or eddie hall and even then you probably wouldnt have to worry.
