    Default What's this Barbell?

    For those of you who are subject historians... What is this? Thought old York, but can't see any markings. Felt closer to 28 than 29, certainly nowhere near 30+ mm.

    No idea. But it reminds me of a texas deadlift bar.
    Hows the flex under load?

    Haven't loaded it enough to say. Standard length, standard loadable collar length. Used a few Texas Deadlifts (albeit less than 5yo bars), nothing like it - a little too thick for starters.

    Not sure of brand but the gym I go to has a few of them. Crappy bars. The bolts keep coming loose and they bend easily.

    Ah, oh. I thought it looked and felt like something not completely garbage, but potentially something with a few years under it's belt. Shame.
