I HATE it so much that I LOVE it!
I HATE it so much that I LOVE it! I got this axle about 2 years ago. At first I was not a big fan of the knurling since most of the axles are powder coated. However the knurling doesn’t make it easier to lift so no doubt you will be taxing your grip the same way. Training with it makes me feel so miserable, no matter the weight I use it always feels heavy and never easy to handle. I’ve done couple of competitions with powder coated axles and they always feel so much lighter and easier to handle after training with this beast. I’ve managed to get PRs on every competition on my axle presses so I love the results this axle gives me. I use it every week. Review by Mauroaja / (Posted on 11/14/2019)
