I recently bought this bar as a substitute for my Rogue Ohio bar and it completely blows it out of the water. The construction top to bottom is way better, and is clearly a superior product when put side by side. Some of my favourite features are the smooth sleeves (no annoying zipping or ribbing sound when loading plates like on a Rogue bar), the quality of hard chrome used as coating and the quietness of the bar. Unlike the ohio bar I had, this makes more of a muted thud sound when dropped unlike the loud clank of other weightlifting barbells. I personally got the navy colour way and its gorgeous, I haven't seen any companies make a bar this nice in cerakote while still being able to maintain their knurling. American Barbell definitely takes the cake. If you need 1 hybrid bar for your gym, this is definitely a great choice and I'm very pleased with my purchase.
