Re: Again Faster Team Barbell Black and ALL BLACK Price?

Thank you for the fast repsonse!

But why has the

20kg Team Barbell Black a Tensile Strength of 185.000 PSI

and the

20kg Team Barbell ALL Black just a Tensile Strength of 130.000 PSI?


Which one would you choose or prefer?

Re: Again Faster Team Barbell Black and ALL BLACK Price?

I think the All-Black is made to be a bit better of a weightlifting bar, so the bar is less rigid for better whip. So, it kind of depends what you are using it for specifically.

Might be something you'd want to ask Jon (the owner) about - while I'm an engineer and know a little bit about metallurgy, I'm not privy to the company's specific reasoning on things.

Well, if you're going to drop it a lot - aka high-rep Olympic lifts instead of heavy singles - you'd probably want to go with the slightly stronger one.

But honestly, I don't think performance-wise there is much difference. Can't go wrong with either for general use if you don't want to go through the hassle of returning it.

Hey,

Same thing happened to me, received the ALL BLACK instead of the BLACK BARBELL.

See more here: http://board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=84047 - WFS

I had the same question about the quality, and I was ensured that they are the same quality and PSI is the same, it was just an typing error on their webpage.

I even got an answer form the owner, Jon, that it was a mistake at the U.S. distribution center.

Re: Again Faster Team Barbell Black and ALL BLACK Price?

Hi, thank you and i just wanted to post the same info!

I asked:
"Please tell me the exact difference between the ALL BLACK and BLACK Barbell. On the Webpage i can only see the PSI of the bars with the ALL BLACK 20kg and 15kg both 130.000 PSI and the 20kg Black 185.000 PSI and the 15kg Black 165.000 PSI. Whats the tensile strength / yield strength of both 15kg and 20kg bars?"

The answer:
"Regarding the bars, the "All Black" bars, the rating on these is exactly the same as all the other bars. Its a typo on the US site, which I have told them about and they said they'd changed it. The only difference is literally the colour."

Kind regards

Andi
