My first bar.. and I LOVE it!Reviewed by Michael on January 18, 2014
Being on a budget, I decided to pull the trigger on this bar and I gotta say, it has far exceeded my expectations. From heavy clean and jerks and snatches being dropped from overhead to 400lb+ deadlifts, this bar can do everything that I hoped for. The knurling is perfect, and the absence of a center knurl makes cleans that much more enjoyable.
Nice barReviewed by dnoyeB on December 23, 2013
I'm no professional Olympic lifter but I Love this bar. I've used the Ohio bar and really loved it. This performs equally well for me and its a lot cheaper. The knurling is excellent. Way better than the Cap barbells I felt up at the local big box..
Best DealReviewed by Ty on August 13, 2013
This is by far the best bar I have ever used. Albeit, the only bars that I have really worked with are the usual all silver crappy ones with a bolt of the end of them. And the Econ Bar just blows it out of the water. Much better grip and better whip. I would really love to have purchased the flagship Rogue Bar though. If you have the extra cash I'd say go for the Rogue Bar.
Awesome garage bar.Reviewed by Kaner on June 09, 2013
I couldn't ask for a better bar for my garage wods. This bar feels great and is a steal for the price!!
QualityReviewed by Rome on April 19, 2013
GREAT bar for the money!! Bar is far under-rated in my opinion. I have (2) other Rogue bars and this Eco bar. I've loaded the Eco bar over #600 for deadlifts with no issues. Go-to bar for oly lifts and it has great whip and spin.
Didn't give 5 stars only cause 5 star bars are well over a thousand dollars.
Great barReviewed by John on October 18, 2012
Quickly became one of our gym's favorites right up there with a few of our pricier bars. Perfect diameter for a solid hook grip.
Great starter/ general pop. barReviewed by westwilson on July 19, 2012
I have had this bar for 1.5 years and it is great. I train outside in temps from 106-14* and this bar has held up to it all. Little to no change in the bars finish over the years and just a good all around bar.
Great for beginnersReviewed by Rob on July 17, 2012
I CF at my home and own 2 of the Eco Bars and a Castro Bar. This bar is fantastic for its price and for people who are getting started. It has a Good Knurl to it and holds chalk well. This Spin is decent enough to learn all the proper techniques of the Oly lifts. It will also stand up to most of the continuous abuse of a WOD. I have had no problems with dropping a 200# snatch. Great for it Price.
Love it!Reviewed by Ivan on June 15, 2012
The best part about this bar is that it has no center knurling and it feels a lot better on my back when I squat. I would recommend this bar to anybody that doesn't need that section of knurling.
