Eleiko has their Sport Training Bar on clearance for $499 with free shipping. Both 35lb and 45lb bars are the same price. These rarely go on sale and are normally $699 + shipping. You will not find a better bar at this price. I have one of these and I'm tempted to get another. Needle bearings and incredible knurling. 10 year warranty. If you don't want to drop $1,000 on the IWF competition bar, this is a good compromise and the knurling is not as sharp, allowing higher reps without shredding your hands.

And 5x the quality. The closest comparison that Rogue makes is the Euro 28mm WL bar which is $695. And that is only Rogue's attempt at copying an Eleiko bar. There is a reason Eleiko is the default for professional comps; they are the best. That's like being shocked that a Ferrari costs more than a Hyundai...

I have this bar, and it's incredible. I have Rogue bars (my SS OPB may actually be my overall favorite) also and they have their place, but there's really no comparison for the Olympic lifts in my opinion. That includes the Euro which I don't own but have used in the past.

Would love to see more high end fitness equipment on SD.

Agreed. I use lots of Rogue equipment, but I have yet to find anything that compares to an Eleiko bar. Trying to talk myself out of buying a second cause the price is right...

Definitely like seeing quality lifting products on here. They make top end equipment. I'm sure the big box consumers had a coronary when saw this price.
