Rated 4 out of 5 by Dave Mine is actually 7' I don't know if I got lucky or got some weird b-stock, but my bar is 84" which is 7'. But that's absolutely fine with me. That length allows for plenty of grip area: about 51" wide. So I have no problem with wider grip movements. The knurling of the grip area is (in my opinion) pretty aggressive - meaning it feels like it's a deeper, maybe even "sharper" grip. Some may like this, some may not. I prefer it. I do like that the center of the bar is NOT knurled. When doing any kind of clean or front squat, the center of the bar rests on the top of the chest and, to me, knurling the center scratches up the chest like crazy. If anyone is complaining about the bar not being an Olympic size, then those people apparently don't know what "standard" means for barbells...they apparently also don't look at photos of the product because there's no way you look at the pic of this bar and think it's Olympic size! ;) It would be nice if a bar like this would include clamps/collars - those spring clamps are cheap, just include them! I had no problem getting my older standard size collars to fit but it seems that there are some people that have had to get larger clamps. Why a 'standard' collar doesn't fit a 'standar' bar? I dunno. I mean, standard is supposed to mean standard, right? I double checked my bar, it looks be dead on 1" diameter. Hopefully people that purchase bar understand that it is not meant for really heavy Olympic lifts, it is not meant for rubber bumper plates that can be dropped. This is a basic bar made for home workout enthusiasts. I did go to the local store to purchase this bar, but they don't carry this type in store...they only carry the bar with the "screw on" collars which I think are terrible (they always loosen). So they had me order it in store, online which was awesome because it ended up free shipping and arrived at my front door two days later! September 21, 2015

Rated 3 out of 5 by B Good beginner bar Thought this bar was a technique bar - it was a good bar but wouldn't fit bumper plates. May 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by DavidB9999 Fit perfect for my smaller weight room I already had a 5' bar but wanted a little more room after getting a new bench. This worked great for me. January 19, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sparky this product is an excellent economical choice for working out . this product uses one inch clips to hold the weights on , no spinners to work loose when you do curls , bar can be stored vertically taking up very little space . December 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by rlzaleski Seeems solid Wanted a 1 inch bar, this one seems to perform. Havent' had the opportunity to really load it up yet, but it definitely feels good. Someone complained about clips, it didn't come with any, but mine DO fit it. If you need a 1" bar, then this one should be good. July 26, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by jjones1 Not as described. Bar will not work with Olympic benches, as indicated in the description.Bar was returned. July 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lifter7 Good bar, but lacks spring clips. The bar is good overall, but it lacks the clips needed to hold weight plates on the bar. This bar has smooth ends, not the typical screw on ends. Most - if not all - bars come with the nuts/clips you need to hold the weight on - this one does not. Adding insult to injury, the clips I bought later for this bar don't even fit - even though the bar AND the clips are both 'standard.' (Both were bought at Dicks). September 27, 2013
