Customer reviewsThe best investment I ever made on a curl bar
So, I did my research before buying this bar. Just under 150 shipped to me. Yes, made in China but stated by Ivanko as made to their specifications. They say it s a slightly stripped down version of their better bars Their stainless curl bar sells for about 650. I m guessing they sell many of these bars OBZ-30B at 150 and it s probably because of what it costs to produce in China, labor costs, etc..... I m thinking the average guy like me doesn t want to spend 650 on a quality bar where there are plenty of them out there for under 100. Can t find a PSI tensile strength rating for it but I ll assume it s comparable to their US made bars. Weighs in at exactly 30lbs on my scale. Beautiful workmanship. Nice knurling. Thick 30mm bar. Brass bushings that let the spindles free spin I was impressed . I m 6 2 240lbs and that s exactly why I bought this bar over a standard 48 length one. This bar is 60 and it lets me not only do curls comfortably but shoulder raises too. Plenty of real estate on the bar to spread your arms and grip for whatever you want to do. Packaging was nice. It came in a thick cardboard tube with the Ivanko name stenciled all over it. it shipped from Ivanko . It arrived in perfect condition. Working out with a nice piece of equipment makes me feel good inside and that translates to a better workout in my humble opinion. Yes, it s a very nice bar and worth every cent I paid for it and it rates excellent on every review I ve seen. I concur.
