Default Undecided - Which Bar????


My son competes in OWL and we have a Uesaka bar for his lifts at home. He also does a strength program involving the component lifts. The cheap powerlifting bar we have been using has bent.

Question is do I replace it with a powerlifting bar or get a second less expensive OWL which would then give us a spare OWL bar?

Is there any advantage doing the BS,FS,DL,BP,Military presses with a powerlifting bar

I was leaning towards a Powerlifting bar as there would be less take-up flex as opposed to a OWL bar. Is this correct?

What I dont want to do is get a particular type of bar and then he says to me, "Dad we should have got the other bar"......
