It was held together by rivets. Not even screws, literally aluminum plug rivets I had to hammer in and wouldn't trust to hold a pair of blue jeans together...
Amazon was great and sent a replacement right away, unlike Woodpecker Woodworking which doesn't deliver a package at all and refuses a refund/replacement. Now I shoot openbox vids for everything.
But the bar- it's solid. Chrome plated. Looks like I paid far more than I did. It's a great deal.
Didn't realize the bar wasn't threaded, so I saved a few bucks and bought a couple of 1" locking collars for $1.50 for two. Great deal!
It begins (safely) bowing at 250ish pounds and has a decided arch at 300 (the bar is rated safe up to 300). The most I've had is 320 and it felt totally safe while I was squatting.
Good product, great price. Would buy again.
The only negative I have is that after about 4 months of use the bar is starting to get a little rust where the collars are scratching the ends of the bar.
Overall, I really like this bar and it is a great product for the price.
It's a little longer than the average standard barbell you'll find at walmart or target. Doing squats with the 60" reebok bar I used to use meant it was always difficult to get my grip in as close as I would have liked and sometimes my hands were directly on the plates, rather than the bar. Mark Rippetoe would have had a stroke watching me. For someone that is a little more broad or isn't as flexible at the shoulders, the extra foot (which translates into about an extra 3 inches to the end of each grip) may be helpful.
If you need a bar for a home gym and you don't have the room a full olympic bar would require, this is a good middle ground. One-piece construction is a plus too. Get a pair of Lock-Jaw collars to go with it and you'll be glad you did.
