Re: AF/Klokov stuff

I'm beyond stoked that you guys are happy with the new barbells.

The Klokov and Team offerings are now literally the best value-to-money barbells available, anywhere in the world.

I wouldn't make that claim without proof: we're fully backed up with metallurgical tests as well as independent testimonials from some of the pickiest people around.

The tensile, yield, whip, coating, knurl and spin are all outstanding, best-in-class.

We're banking Again Faster's reputation on it.

Best,

Jon

Re: AF/Klokov stuff

Thanks Jon!

Do you have any idea when the Klokov stuff is going to be available in Canada? I've got a Pendlay bushing bar I love, but am very interested in the Klokov bar, especially if the price is right.

Thanks!

Re: AF/Klokov stuff

I ordered one of the Klokov bars over thanksgiving (just bar, no plates) and i know they are not supposed to be here before Christmas. however, i was wondering if any of you have had any updates from again faster on when they might ship? i emailed them last week with no response on when it might ship, and i haven't heard anything else from af since the initial email confirmation.

Re: AF/Klokov stuff

I received mine last Wednesday. I wasn't expecting it until after Christmas but then I got a shipping confirmation and it even arrived 3 days early from that as well.

I have used it for 3 heavy Olympic weightlifting days so far and I'll say for now that it is really awesome. It feels great, spin with weight is great, and the chrome looks very nice.

I'm going to use it more before I put up a more detailed review, but I will say that there were some minor issues I had involving shipping and a bit of damage and againfaster customer service was phenomenal and took care of me more than I could have hoped.

For now, it is highly recommended

Sounds similar to my story but I actually didn't get mine yet. I ordered just the bar so I wasnt expecting it until the end of the month but 2 weeks ago I got a shipping confirmation and a tracking number. On the day it was supposed to arrive, I got an email from FedEx saying that the package was damaged and was being sent to the sender. I am now waiting on a new bar from Again Faster .

Re: AF/Klokov stuff

I used my Klokov bar for the first time today. Really well made, spins really well and professional finish. Not a fan of the soft knurling, but that's personal preference. Had to chalk up my hands to keep the hands from slipping on an empty bar. Once you've chalked up it's sticking to your hand.

Re: AF/Klokov stuff

Thomas,

We'll have stock again in the United States on Jan 16th.

The Klokov Bar keeps selling at rates beyond our expectations; my apologies for the back order, Brother!

Let me know if you have any questions. Looking forward to getting you squared away.

Best,

Jon

Re: AF/Klokov stuff

Disclaimer - I haven't actually used the barbell yet, but here are my initial impressions.

I have to say, I was pretty disappointed by the packaging. I've order bars from both Rogue and MDUSA, and while all of them come in the same hard cardboard tube, both Rogue and MDUSA bars have either metal or plastic end caps that are stapled into the card board. The packaging looks to be nothing more than lots of tape, with what appears to be a little bit of paper to keep the tape from sticking to the end of the barbell. Overall, it looks pretty slapdash, which is disappointing because it leaves the barbell vulnerable to damage.

Next, I'll post pictures of the barbell.
