Review 1 for CAP Barbell Olympic Solid Black Power Bar with Silver Zinc Sleeves

First impressions - Nice bar for the price

Have been looking for a bar to complete my garage gym. Read several good reviews of this CAP bar (product #OB-86B) and the price was the lowest of all the bars I was considering, plus you cannot beat the free shipping. I am planning on using it for CrossFit workouts at home.
Bar arrived today packaged well in a thick cardboard sleeve. Was slight box damage to one end from the shipping, but the bar was flawless. Most cheap bars have a large bolt that often works its way loose holding on the sleeves. This bar is of a higher quality and uses a snap ring to hold the sleeve. The sleeve has deep grooves to keep the plates in place. The sleeves have some spin and may spin more freely once it gets broken in.
The knurling feels a bit aggressive and that is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. It feels a bit sharp in my hands. Maybe after some use I will feel differently. This bar has no center knurling which is good if you are doing exercises like thrusters or cleans, where the center of the bar rests near your neck.
Overall an excellent bar for the price.

good bar for a new person just starting out to lift. but its not a nice as it states. it bends bad with 315 on it. it straightens back out after you rack it but bends bad the grip is not really rough. nice bar for the price but don't think you a re getting a deal. as soon as you become a Sirius lifter you will buy a different one.

Best bar for the money

Black oxide bar, zinc coated ends, bushings and spring clip ends. Nearly zero maintence. Rated for more than I can dead lift. IMO, this is the best bar out there at this price point. Comparable bars like this are $170 and up.

This is a solid bar. The knurling is a bit aggressive, but If you wear gloves or use sponges you will be fine. It was packed really well and shipped quickly. It weighs right around 44-45lbs. If you train with 300-400 lbs the bar will be just fine.

Got my bar and put it to use right away. Just love the feel of the bar, just the right thickness for benching, great knurling as well . Am considering buying another one exclusively for deadlifting as the bar has lots of weight potential. Training for the WABDL worlds and this bar will be a great asset.

Well this bar looks good, knurling feels good, spins good. But don't try to put over 600lb on it. I tested the bar out by putting 775lb on it and lifting it off of my shrug rack. It bent about 1/8in to 1/4in in the middle. Did good with a 500lb deadlift though!

Best "Value" bar

I have been more than happy with this bar. I use it was bumper plates for cross-fit and it hold up to the abuse quite well. The action and feel of the bar isn't as nice as, say a rogue bar, but you can also buy three of these for the price of one of the higher end bars. All in all, the best bar I've used at this price point.

Good value for a a barbell

I was looking for a barbell that was a step above the poorly made bars that come with weight sets. After researching for a good intermediate bar, I found that many people recommend this particular barbell (especially for the price). I can say the quality appears good and it should last me a very long time. Walmart shipping and delivery were top notch as well.
