Barbells in the UK

Hi guys,

I know that both Rogue and Again Faster now have European stores that can ship to the UK, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a 'slightly' cheaper brand that was still good quality that might be an alternative?

It's just to use at home, but I have had the experience of bad barbells in the local globo gym and ones with no 'give' on them almost threw my back out. So I know cheap isn't better with these things, but the two brands I mention are still a little out of my price range.

Re: Barbells in the UK

i got mine from strengthshop. i believe in the end i went for the perpetual weightlifting bar, you can go cheaper, but as you said its worth investing in it. bought a number of things from them for my gym at home and everything great so far, really impressed with their service. also the bar i purchased came with a lifetime warranty which is definitely worth considering.
