That may be true for you, but it's not true for everyone. I've owned numerous bars over the years from York, Quest, Lynx, Cap, Sorinex, Hampton, etc. and haven't noticed a difference between those with and without a center knurl with squats in the mid/upper 400's.

As with everything else in life, YMMV.

In hindsight, I can see that my statement was poorly worded. It should've read "Some folks find that the center knurl helps hold the bar in place during squats".
