Not much can be said here, except that this bar is your standard EZ curl bar and doesn’t contain any strange, carcinogenic compounds that might leach into your skin and kill you (as do some of the items listed on Amazon). I particularly like the collars for this bar, as they provide a rubber barrier between the collar and the bar, which prevents the collars from sliding, loosening, or coming unscrewed during a workout.
That being said, make sure you have already purchased a set of STANDARD (as opposed to Olympic) weights, as the bar comes all by its lonesome. For those new to all this, standard weights are the ones with the small hole. Recommended.
Good bar. I was having trouble finding the right threaded EZ curl bar for French Presses. This one is almost perfect, but it is a bit awkward given how pointy and triangular some of the curves are. Doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort, it just takes some getting used to.
Also, I’m a bit sad that the ends of the bar aren’t as long other bars I’ve owned. I could normally fit an extra plate on each side of my old bars, but…for the price, I’m still very happy with it. The steel is high quality, and the collars are very good thanks to the rubber rings attached to them. It helps give a better and more secure fit. I think that’s enough to give it 5 stars, because loose and clanky weights interrupt workouts incessantly. The collars that come with this bar make a huge difference in preventing that.
It has taken me a few years to really get back into working out. From 1990-2010, I worked out religiously. Then I ended up moving across the country, building a new house for my family and working out just became too much of a hassle. I put on about 50 pounds over a two year, non-workout period. I started buying new pieces for a home gym last year and for whatever reason, I really don’t know, I bought a two-piece curling bar. I didn’t even think much about it since I still wasn’t working out. Over the last 4 months, I’ve slowly started working out again. I can’t tell you how much I hated that two-piece curling bar. The reason I can’t tell you why I bought it is simple, this one by Sunny is only six dollars more than the two-piece was. My wife insists that I wanted the two-piece with portability in mind, but I don’t think that’s why I bought it.
Either way, I saw this bar on sale and ordered it. I got into the condition I was in when younger with just dumbbells, one of these curling bars, a tricep bar, a standard bench and free weights. I’m in a better financial situation now than then, but I still prefer free weights. I now have this bar with roughly 300 lbs of free weights and a set of the Bowflex adjustable dumbbells. I was so happy to be able to do spider curls, forearm curls and bicep curls with automatic pronation. This bar should be in every home gym based on free weights. I guess some have complained about the collars slipping, but that was always a reminder to focus for me. Giving the collars one to two good tight twists before each set. This bar is nice and sturdy too. I always find bars hard to weigh, but from the best I can tell, this bar, with collars on it, is roughly 15 lbs. The bar is around 10, the collars are 2.5 each. Highly recommended and very glad to have found for it for such a good price.
