5 of 5 Addition to my earlier review April 25, 2019
Reviewer: Chris Coyle from Pennsylvania  
I can't find any logo or label or I.D. anywhere on this bar.  Black Widow ought to toot its horn a little on such a sweet piece of gear!  I'm someone is going to ask me where I got it.

5 of 5 Very happy customer here April 25, 2019
Reviewer: Chris Coyle from Pennsylvania  
This beast weighs 35 pounds on my scale and is ridiculously overbuilt. Welds are perfect and the spacing options fit me perfectly.  The grips don't have conventional knurling, but the entire bar has a sandpaper finish,  so sweaty hands shouldn't be a problem.

I bought a Swiss Bar due to chronic shoulder pain benching with a conventional bar.  I  chose Black Widow because I've had good luck with small U.S. strength training companies that are willing to make oddball pieces of gear.  

Nothing against Rogue or Vulcan, but little guys like Black Widow can be just as good or better.

5 of 5 Quality April 8, 2017
Reviewer: Christopher from NJ United States  
You can not beat the quality of this bar for the price. I own other bars from here and they are just as good.

5 of 5 Great Addition for Bench Day February 18, 2017
Reviewer: Ryan from Hutto, TX United States  
If you're looking for a way to blast your triceps, give this bar a shot! It's light enough that some of my weaker female clients can use it unloaded, and it handled 225lbs effortlessly when I was testing it.

There isn't any knurling on the bar, so I was a bit apprehensive about ordering this over the Rogue archetype. Ultimately, the absence isn't even noticeable. Furthermore, the black powdercoat holds chalk well, so it's a non-issue.

UPS beat up the package, so BWTG could have done a better job packaging (or find a new carrier that respects his products/customers more). BWTG has agreed to send me some new end caps because UPS basically destroyed them during shipping. Dean was very prompt to respond to my email, and I appreciate his willingness to ensure my satisfaction.

Note: I have been using OSO Red Axle collars for this barbell, and I highly recommend them. You cannot use standard collars on this bar because the sleeves are a hair too thin.

5 of 5 Excellant Swiss Bar January 20, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from syracuse, NY United States  
Product  welds and finish are excellant as well as balance and proportions. Solid bar and a joy to use. Same goes for the Landmine peice. These two pieces add much variety to training. Thank you for a speedy job well done and for thorough and prompt communication throughout entire process.
