Very good!
Great bar for homegym. The 28mm grip feels so much better compared to my old 30mm grip bar. Knurling and coating really nice. Contact with Strengthshop very good, fast delivery to the Netherlands. Ordered on sunday evening, in my homegym on wednesday. Review by Jozjo / (Posted on 10/8/2015)
