BACK IN STOCK!
2 FINISHES, BOTH "RAW." NEITHER POLISHED. ONE WITH SCALE REMOVED (PRODUCES MATTE FINISH) AND ONE WITH SCALE (THE BROWNISH/PURPLISH/BLUEISH COLOR).
PREVIOUS NOTE: Current edition of 29mm bar has a “raw” finish. See 2nd and 3rd inset photos. A raw finish, in this case, means that the stainless bar has not been polished. Polishing a bar (post-knurl) knocks the points (i.e. the “peak”) off the knurl. (To varying degrees of perception). Though this particular run has a finer knurl than others, the fact that it remains unpolished lends to it a more aggressive feel. Though knurling is a personal thing, everyone who has used this bar so far, has really liked it. Unsolicited opinions can be had from the lifters of the Hardcore Powerlifting Federation. Contact the organization for more info.
Ken Leistner has recently written us on the raw bar: "It is currently the favored bar for the competitive lifters we have in the garage."
