Rated 4 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Overpriced and generally inadequate This 7 foot, 45 lb. bar came with my Fitness Gear 300 lb. barbell set which both my son and I have used for the past 9 months. If it were only me, things likely would be fine and I would have given this product a 4 or 5 star rating since I won't be lifting anything exceeding 200 lbs. no matter how strong I become. But my son performs dead lifts at near capacity (280 lbs.) and I suspect the bar has failed under the stress. At first, the threads where the collars meet the bar separated on several occasions (and they seemed surprisingly loose or wobbly when not separated). This was annoying, but we could always screw them back together and/or tighten them. But now something has begun sliding inside one of the wider ends which shifts the balance as one lifts if you don't maintain the bar perfectly parallel with the floor during each lift. In other words, the bar has failed and its continued use is dangerous. This bar is a 300 lb. capacity rated bar. Apparently, you need a bar with considerable excess weight capacity or it will be susceptible to failure. I don't think a 300 lb. capacity bar is a good choice to be sold in a set with 255 lbs. of plates. (The bar weighs approximately 20 kg or 45 lbs. bringing the total weight of the set to 300 lbs.) There is not enough excess weight capacity to handle the stress from normal use. What's more, at $80, this is not a good value. There are bars made by Capp Barbell (500 lb. capacity) selling for $70 - clearly a better value and probably sturdy enough for my 300 lb. set. XMark Fitness makes a 700 lb. capacity bar selling for $100. Higher or professional grade bars will have 1000 to 1500 lb. capacity and will sell from $140 to $300. August 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gettin' Healthy I am wanting to get my son and myself in shape so we decided we are going to lift for strength condistioning. I did not know they had this bar in stock so I ordered it online and was able to pick it up instore. Looking forward to gettin' in shape. April 11, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by You get what you pay for The bar is decent. My issues are the end pieces where the plates slide onto have ridges. When sliding plates on and off they make a horrible screeching/metal on metal noise. My other issue is the when the plates are on the bar, those same end pieces move a bit. So the bar has some wiggle which makes me worry a bit even though the bar is rated to 300 pounds. I would say for $79, its not a horrible deal, but looking back, I would rather have paid a little extra and gotten something that had a smooth finish on the end pieces. That noise is awful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Worked well while it lasted Had this bar for almost a month and it worked just fine. Out of nowhere during a workout the threaded collar on one side just slipped while putting weight on the bar. Not sure how the thread stripped so easily. You get what you paid for I suppose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Faulty Side But Works One side of the bar was too thick to accommodate my plates. Was able to make it work with a metal file, but not ideal, and without my hardiness would have been useless. January 11, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by El cheapo Save your money and invest in a better bar. Out of the box the bar already had a very slight bend. Within a few months oxidation appeared. And to top it off, the collars were a mm or 2 too big, could not fit bumper plates on it without some serious muscle. Other than that, not bad for the price. But beware if you want to upgrade to better plates. December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It performs the task great The product does exactly what it is supposed to do. What impresses me even more is the quality of customer service I experienced. Great people at the Naples store! October 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I really like this bar! What can I say, it's a bar, but it performs great. I have absolutely no issues with this bar. Fits great on my Fitness Gear PRO HR|500 rack too. And there's plenty of room for weights for my workout to grow as I grow. I ordered it online and the process was smooth. It arrived in great condition in a large tube. October 17, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by A sturdy product I go to the gym and I like feel of a 45lb bar, so being a shy female I purchase this for my home and it works great. August 27, 2015
