olympic bar whip

I want to get a bar for olympic lifts that has a good bit of whip. Which barbell under $500 has the best whip?

MDUSA has Pendlay bearing bars on sale for $449 right now, that would be your best bet for a good Oly bar at a price point below $500.

I have the Pendlay and DHS training bar and I think the DHS may have more but the knurling is a little more aggressive.

I've used both and I find the knurl way easier on the hands w/ the DHS.

I like doing power cleans more than any other explosive lift.
