Thanks for the reality check -- my attitude has been "I'm not that good, I don't need a good bar." But now that I think of it, every time I go to the Berkeley weightlifting room my cleans feel really weird at first. They have a mix of York and Eleiko... go figure.
I'll just focus on strength when I have the crap bar, and save my snatch/clean attempts for the days I lift at UC Berkeley. Probably a good program for where I'm at anyway.
Thank you for your service, Javier. Stay safe.
