Again Faster Portable Pullup Bar

I just recently received Again Faster's new and improved version of their pullup bar and just wanted to share a few points.

Out of the box comes a pair of decent sized straps and buckles to hang your bar, and the bar itself. The new aspect of the bar is welded semicircles on each end where the straps will run through. Those appear rock solid and plenty burly enough to support my 200# load! Installation was a breeze once I got the straps over the I-Beams in my basement. At 12 feet, there was plenty of strap to go to a higher distance if needed.

Now installed I knocked out a few sets of pullups and quickly noticed a difference from doing pullups on a rigid system. Similar to the feeling of dong ring pullups with the bar moving forward and back with each kip. The bar does have a bit of a slick feel to it initially so we will see if use roughens it up or will require a little surface abrasion to help with grip.

Overall, love the bar. Very adaptable to the basement/garage gym, park workouts, or anywhere you can toss those straps over. Highly recommend it.
