I bought this to do body pump at home, it's easy to handle as the length is perfect for me, and its easy to change weights quickly. As the diameter was on the wall when I bought it I knew the plates I had would fit. I am really pleased with it for the price. I would recommend it, I have been using it regularly for about 4 months now.
i bought this bar because its rated at 160kg unlike other bars at 125kg but when i got home i tried to load it up but not one of my of weight plates would fit the bar diameter the bar is a couple of mm wider than my weights and i have a few brands,york, weider, body sculpture etc ONLY DOMYO WEIGHTS FIT THIS BAR a real shame as i could not afford to get the plates awsell ..why make a barbell that does not fit the standard 1" hole plates, 2x 10 mile trips to the store aswel disapointed
