5 of 5 Super versatile bar May 22, 2024
Reviewer: Jared from Louisville, KY  
Dean helped me come up with the final design after a lot of back and forth. I do not know of another open Swiss bar like this. The YT video speaks for itself on how much this bar can offer for exercises potentials. I have the original bar, it weighs 37 pounds, super sturdy, knurling feels very good. Check out my YT video on this site. I did miss that this bar is good for spider curl bars on a seal row pad for even an adjustable bench.
Yes, you should get one.

5 of 5 Multi Use May 2, 2024
Reviewer: Jamison Dorsett from Indiana  
Having met Dean in person, as well as Jared-the original owner of the first VHS bar, owning my own feels like being part of a tight knit community of strength. Dean already knew I train in a small space and as such--needed a custom 6ft bar instead of 7ft, and he nailed the length perfectly. World class knurling and the sleeves still give room for plenty of weight. I opted for custom angled handles and parallel handles to work different load capacities, both of which allow for excellent tension for different muscle movements. Shoulders feeling great with the ergonomics of the VHS. I frequently use it for safety bar squats, bench press, overhead press, but the uses are endless. With the right creativity, this is 10 bars in one bar. Thank you Dean!

5 of 5 VHS bar March 1, 2024
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Maryland  
I've been exercising with this bar for a few weeks now and I've been enjoying it. The bar arrived within 5 weeks of placing my order. The stock VHS bar is 80" long with 13" sleeves. But Dean was kind enough to chop 5" off of each sleeve, as requested. The knurling is excellent. But it probably wasn't necessary since the stock powder coat is already grippy.

Along with the different exercises illustrated in the above videos, I like doing neutral-grip shrugs with this also.

5 of 5 VHS Bar October 28, 2023
Reviewer: Adam James from Albany NY  
Just arrived 2nd BW bar again unreal quality
beyond versatile, I have 30 speciality bars, totally didn't need this but BW makes too good of a product at fair price not to add this to collection

primarily using for chest, back and shoulder movements but can do pretty much any movement you creat
