The handles are smaller grip than a normal olympic bar which makes it possible to lift even more weight. The gnarling is a good feel as well.

So far so good. I did bent over rows and it felt great. Less strain of the lumbar spine once again to the the weight placement. You can probably fit 4 or 5 45lbs weights on each side as long as they are not bumper plates.

RDLs felt pretty good with this bar as well. Lots of experimenting to do, I will probably update this review later.

It's not chrome plated and the silver paint may chip off over time, but you can't beat the price. Worst case, buy a can of spray paint in a year or two. Hex bars are generally a great alternative to straight bars for squats, deadlifts, and shrugs.

The picture fools you. I bought this item thinking it was chrome plated, but It is painted with cheap paint you can remove with your nail. If you want a rusted bar buy this; if not not spend $30 more and get a chrome plated one

First let me say that this bar was $129 shipped with Amazon Prime. Bars I've found similar were nearly $200 or more. I have been lifting for years and my straight bar deadlifts were starting to get heavy. Since I am 6'2 with long legs, I was getting more and more nervous every time I deadlifted. I saw this bar at a friend's and gave it a shot. I liked it so much I bought one myself.

My first time using it, I could immediately feel the relief on my back. I feel like I get a better workout from this bar VS a straight bar. I feel like my mid-back is getting a better workout.

One thing to note is that it is normal to be able to lift more with a hex bar VS a straightbar. I know some purists don't like hex bars, but unless you compete in powerlifting, why risk your back? Sure, you could practice your form over and over, but all it takes is one lazy moment to throw your back out forever. I still plan to do the straight bar deadlift once in a bluemoon, but this hex bar will be my primary tool for deadlifts and shrugs.

This bar is one of the best additions to my home gym. Allows you to safely lift massive weight! Simple and easy to use and my back doesn't hurt while lifting anymore! Received it quick too!

I definitely agree with JSF14 and his review about the quality expectation when buying a piece of equipment that you believe to be new. I received my trap bar very promptly (2 days) and also spent 30 minutes unwrapping it from it's taped cocoon. I must say that I immediately noticed it had been painted and noticed on two of the handle welds that rust was present and had been painted over with silver paint. So I was initially disappointed but to be honest I train in my garage and have numerous pieces of used and somewhat rusted equipment and weights. My point is that if I had bought this on Craigs list I know what I'm buying but when you buy something on Amazon that is listed as "New" you expect it to be New!! The CAP trap bar is still a quality bar and I'm sure it will take a beating which is why I rated it 3 stars as being somewhere in the middle.

IT has already been stated that the coating on this is paint rather than a metal bonding, so it will wear faster than a better bar. As I purchased this for a home gym I could careless about looks, so this is not really why I lowered its score.
First the packaging is terrible. Mine was wrapped one time around with plastic wrap and one time around with tape. First this provided no protection, so the corners and handles were all dinged up and dented by arrival. Amazon gave me a partial refund for the items used stature. The other issue with this is that it took forever to cut through all the tape. The smooth, round surface did not readily allow a knife to cut through the tape so I pretty much had to just tear it off inch by inch. In the end it took about a half hour to get all the packaging remove.
I don't know that I will ever put 500 lbs on the unit. But in using it and feeling it, I kind of doubt that it would be good to put 500lbs routinely on this unit. I just don't think the metal and welds will hold up under that sort of tensile stress repetitively.

Pros:
+One of the most affordable Hex Bars out there
+Works well for the light use of a home gym.

Cons:
-Packaging is terrible
-Finish easily wears off
-Not study enough for 500lbs routinely

Overall, I am still happy with my purchase and I am glad I have the bar. I still recommend purchasing the unit if the above issues are not a deal breaker.

Definitely a great buy for the money. The finish isn't the best, but who cares unless you're buying this for a commercial gym. I've been beating the crap out of this thing and it's taking it like a pro. Don't waste your money on more expensive alternatives. You won't regret this buy!!
