I'm really excited, I ordered a Pendlay men's 20kg training bar on Friday and when I came home on Saturday it was waiting for me. Shipping was only like 11ish dollars to Ft bragg NC. The knurl is sweet I barley even use chalk now.... no tape and my hands are fine.... looking forward to set many PR on this bad boy!!!!!

Keep using chalk, don't give it up!

Did you mean thanks Glenn?
I just bought that same Pendlay training bar last Thursday. I actually drove to Wichita to pick it up from Glenn. It is my second purchase from him and I always make him throw in a free training session while I am in Wichita. I had an awesome workout with his junior lifters team.
Regarding the bar, I really like it as well! I haven't figured out if it is placebo effect or what but for some reason I lift better with the training bar than I had with my previous HD bar. You wouldn't think a .5mm difference in diameter would make a big difference but with the Training bar it seems I can get a better grip on the bar.
The first thing I did when I took it out of the box was chalk up the knurling. Beyond that I just lightly chalk my index and middle fingers as needed. I don't know if it was the new bar or what but I didn't use tape or anything and didn't shred my hands. The previous bar I had been using was an HD and I seemed to always be ripping callouses.

Ahhh!! sorry Glenn..... Your bars are still awesome!

Glenn is an amazing person. For all my future training-quality bumper and bar purchases, he's the only one I have to visit.
(I'd love to see him start offering Olympic-quality competition sets too, but I guess Werksan and Eleiko already have that market, however small it may be, covered.)
