Olympic Lifting Bar - Mid range
Looking at upgrading my bar:
These seem comparable:
York Men's Training (bushing) $445
Chapman (needle bearing) $429
Pendlay (bushing) $359
Looks like Chapman is no longer selling direct? Found him through BS olympic gym. I would have preferred a direct purchase, don't want center knurling.
I would like to keep it under $500, so the competition york is out at $650.
Not sure I like the low end York Needle bearing at $210, thick chrome.
Any other thoughts or considerations?
