It worth every euro.
I love this bar. I bought this when they had a discount, it was an awesome deal. The knurling is deep and sharp, i love that. Bar doesn't whip too much and the very long knurling in the middle is awesome for squats. Con: The sleeves not spinning too much, but not a big deal since it's a power bar for this price.
Overall i think it's better than the texas power bar. Review by Peter / (Posted on 1/22/2018)
Great bar !
I use this for my presses and my squats. I really like it, the knurling is agressive but doesn't rip your skin. And it looks really good btw ! Review by Mathieu A / (Posted on 9/17/2017)
5 stars!
I have used a range of Olympic barbells from the cheap ones you can find in most gyms to Eleiko bars. This bar is my favorite without a doubt, the knurling provides a solid grip, it spins lovely and has a nice flex. I have used the strength shop 2028 zinc coated bar which is nice, but the Bastard bar is in another dimension. It's worth spending the extra money in my opinion as you will most likely never have to buy another. Excellent customer service, my bar arrived the next day. 5 stars to strength shop .

I own a Texas Powerbar and this bar is just as good.
A really good bar with knurling as it should be at an absolute bargain price.
And whilst I'm here, I might as well add that Strength Shop service is second to none. Review by J.B. / (Posted on 11/16/2015)
