    I got 2 of these bars during the pandemic when Gyms were closed. Imo these have been great. I know they are not the standard Olympic 7ft 20kg but they hold up. I've had 140kg on these for bench and 150kg for deadlift with no issues. Not even had to tighten the collars.

    Cons are the finish is poor for the grip area , of the two, 1 i got is more rough to hold and there are no marks for ends, centers on these so I made some using some electrical tape. I don't think you will fine better for £35. (edited)

    Hi, do you know where I can buy weights to put on this please? Any recommendations?

    For the price, very good value.

    6ft bar so it's not going to fit most power racks, but fine for squat stands, weight benches, Olympic weightlifting / lifting from floor etc.

    Plenty of limitations if you're "the more seasoned weightlifter" they claim it's aimed at, but for many it will be fine.

    Quality for the price. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise

    Anyone know of any good deals for plates to add to this?

    oddly enough, Argos again. they have a habit of popping them on discount every so often. I can vouch for the quality.

    Amazing, thanks!

    Have a gym in a narrow room only 7.5ft wide by 20ft so the 7ft barbell has only one option, parallel to the room length, but this would be perfect to use perpendicular to the room and since I'm currently in rehab for surgery and much lighter so all in all perfect for my purposes.

    Great deal, I need one that can hold 136kg though, darn. I always miss out.
    Noxy's avatar
    Don't worry, I had upto 150kg on these so go for it

    I would be maxing this out on skull crushers.

    fantastic value

    Not bad, recently got a rack, won't do for deads, but for emoms or cheeky garden workouts, ticks the boxes (edited)

    No, this is Fine for Deadlifts.. I just sold mine and it could hold 4+ 20kg plates on each side easy

    Great price, got a bar from Argos a few years ago to get my home gym started and the quality is great. The quick release collars are good too at 7.50

    I just sold one of these 2nd hand for £60.. This is cheap
  13. koimaster's avatar
    Wow great price. Great for garage deadlifts!
  14. dmannn's avatar
    be aware the knurling on this bar is not really suitable for squatting.

    Only bench and potentially deadlifts, but ideally a 7ft bar would be better.

    Let's not forget our good friends shrugs and bent over row (single or double arm).
  15. Dave_Lamb's avatar
    I'd be a bit worried this would break if it only holds 135kg
  16. sarason's avatar
    Just what limits its weight.?
    Presumably, it's a solid bar and at only 6ft there's not much leverage to bend it at 135KG.

    Just noticed it is light for a 6ft bar. (edited)

    I want to love this but with a length of 117cm between the collars it is painfully close, but not enough to be used with a power rack. I suppose this isn't meant for that crowd exactly, still painful though as it is super cheap otherwise.

    I got one, they had it in stock at my local Argos and I walked it home with it...for over 2 miles.
    Single armed farmers carry in alternating fashion.

    The thing looks great for the price.
