Read and watched several reviews before purchasing the Iron Skull PB. I expected it to be a solid bar at a great price. It has surpassed my expectations and has been my daily driver since I received it. Great knurl. Great bar.
It’s my Current daily driver!
I own all 3 of them in different finishes. My favorite is the Iron Skull Power Bar in Black cerakote. It the most aggressive one I have found with these specs and at this price point. I prefer an aggressive knurling. It’s currently my favorite power bar and my Daily driver for all my main lifts SBD and OHP
I like the knurling. thought it would be more aggressive, but it's really not (for me at least). Only complaint is that the bushing move around a bit more than I'm used to - does not make a difference but tolerance should be minimized. otherwise, great bar!
Absolutely LOVE this bar. I ordered the bare steel version and ended up with a black zinc, which is kinda good because the knurling is so sharp the bare steel may be too much. I really enjoy lifting heat with this. For comparison, I own a Rogue OPB and Texas PB, both in bare steel, and a Rep SS Deep Knurl PB. The Iron Skull is the most agressive knurl I’ve got. The build quality is good, the end points of the knurling are sloppy, the sleeve tolerance is tight on my Rogue training plates, but man, for the price and the crazy knurl, you can’t beat this barbell. This isn’t going to be my only purchase from Bare Steel Equipment!
Was looking for a new power bar and wanted something other than the norms when I found the Iron Skull Power Bar. Customer Service was awesome, when contacted they said they could do an all black cerakote bar which I wanted. The solid tube arrived and bar had end caps and no nicks or damage a first for me. Bar looks awesome and knurling plus cerakote makes my hands feel like they are glued to the bar. Been lifting 35+ years one of if not the best feeling bars ever for me. Overall a great experience can’t say that too often these days. Thank you Bare Steel for the personal attention and looking out for us old veterans.
