    Thanks brother. I emailed the guy and haven't heard nothing yet. It is an older bar doesn't have the black coating on the ends.
    If he gets back to me then I will get it. Otherwise I think after reading and watching some videos I might just get the Ohio power bar and get a Texas squat bar.

    A good squat bar is kind of like a competition bench. Don't realize how valuable it is till you don't have it. I swear a thick stiff squat bar makes it feel 40# lighter in the hole.

    Weight feels honestly heavier for me but I like the contact it makes on my back. The thickness and length of the knurling keeps that shit locked in place.

    It def feels better with less whip. My good gym has some old school thick barbells that I love to squat with.

    What weight do y'all notice whip with the squat? So far for me up to 465 hasn't shown any whip.

    With the gay Olympic cheap bars at worlds gym i can feel it around 405 if I lock out fast. Another reason why my elbow is ****ed, cus of the whip.

    Just wanna throw out this link for a review on the OPB

    That page happens to have a few reviews on other things too!

    Think I'm going to get a new rack shortly as well.

    That's what I use for squats. Bare steel. The knurling is definitely "agressive" compared to commercial bars, and with high bar that center knurl really locks in.
