Can you identify this bar?

Going to pick this up tomorrow? Is it anything special (a Pendlay) or just a cheapo?

Re: Can you identify this bar?

I was thinking Pendlay also but, Pendlay bars don't have (as far as I know) black zinc on the shaft. As far as I know pendlay bars are all bright zinc.

Re: Can you identify this bar?

We had some bars with end caps like that. They were old raw steel bars. The owner thought they were pendlay but they would be 6 years old or so. That black zinc looks to be in decent shape so I would guess not that old. Probably not a super cheap bar b/c the end cap is sealed, so at the least you're getting a good bar for the slow lifts.

Is it possible to take the sleeves off with this type of end cap?

That type of cap is used so that you won't take it apart, but yes, you can disassemble any bar. There are guides on how to remove those types of caps, and it requires drilling a hole into it. You may indeed find a bolt in there, you may not.

There is a Wright HD bar that has (or had) similar end caps and construction.
