I like that the sleeves are the same as a barbell so weights don't flop around on it and the handles feel exactly like a good barbell. I use it as my primary lower body lift. That said it is a lot of money and if I only used the trap bar as an accessory lift I wouldn't invest so much in it.

    Forget to add, the built is jack is awesome.
    I have the TB-2 and find the the knurl to be more of a medium knurl that leans towards passive. I did, however, come from big box gyms where the bars were fairly crappy. So far the only bars I found intolerable were a set of DB handles of unknown origin. They felt like I was lifting bars rolled in broken glass. :x

    Not my experience at all. I would never order from BWTG again after the Titan'esque fit and finish on my safeties. Even worse was the fact that he was completely unresponsive when i emailed him about it. A least Titan would have replaced them or cut me a discount.

    The Vulcan Ox bar looks really good and is on my shortlist when it gets back in stock. Anyone have one and care to share some insights?

    The problem I have with these types is the handles are so high. That really restricts your ROM for DL/squats. They're great for carry's and loading/unloading plates with the feet on them but different ones I've seen, the handles are in the 17"-19" range off the floor . For comparison, a bar is approx. 9". I would wait and get a hex bar with the duel handles, one set even with the sleeves, the other set raised.

    I haven't heard any reviews on that one but it would work better for the use you want it for than the rickshaw type will.

    I ordered an edge fitness rickshaw as well with the intention of using it primarily for DL, farmer walks and shrugs. It’s superior for farmers walks as I didn’t want to smash my revolvers on the pavement. The height issue for DL is easily solvable by standing on mats or plates. I got 2.5” rubber tiles. It can also double as plate storage, although I won’t need it for that. I should also add they were willing to customize the width. I made mine narrower so my wife could use it without having to feel like her arms are being pulled apart. Should be receiving it in the next couple weeks. They’re backed up a bit due to high demand.

    I just saw today that EliteFTS makes a rickshaw with adjustable height feet as well as different handle s. You have to call for a price but this model solves all the cons of other rickshaws.

    Fatal11, I built a rickshaw that was low enough it only added 1/4" of height at the handles compared to raised handles on a trap bar and plates had 1/4" clearance from the ground. I made mine a little narrower also but while I liked the position of the handles (width and height) the feet, which were under the handles were too close together and made setting it down an issue of not smashing my feet. I ended up cutting the legs/feet off and just use it as an open trap bar.

    The feet on the edge rickshaw are offset a few inches to the handles so there is more foot room.

    I like the higher handles from a stability perspective when doing farmer walks. When your handles are on the same plane as the weights it tries to flip forward or backwards. If the weights are under your hands it should theoretically be more stable. I know this works on my kabuki kadillac bar vs a regular flat football/Swiss bar but haven’t confirmed it’s the same effect with farmers yet.

    I’d have to imagine the elite model is 3-5x the price of of the edge.

    I'm on my 2nd Cap combo hex bar, regretted selling it the first time, no complaints, works great, I think it was only $100.

    It's hard to beat the mega Cap hex bar for the price. I've seen it on sale for about $100 and the regular Cap for $89. Shipping was included.

    I should have made mine with the feet offset. I agree about raised handles being more stable, I think that is true of any lift you do with it. Since Elite doesn't have a price listed , you KNOW it's $$$$$.

Personally, I don't think it's enough of a savings to go that route...if you're thinking of spending that amount, might as well get the Kabuki Trap bar.

    Thanks greatly appeciated. At this point, I may just wait for the Bells of Steel open trap bar but may consider Kabuki if it will take too long to get.
