Barbell Advice

Guy's i have a question on selecting a barbell. I am looking at a few from Rogue and am tossing up between the Rogue bar, B&R bar and the Pendlay HD NexGen bar. I am not liking the B&R bar as i live in a very humid area and everything rust like crazy, so i thought a bar with a coating on it might be a better option. The bar usage will basically be CF type training with more o-lifts than usual. Any feedback on any of the bars would be appreciated.


Thanks
Sam

Re: Barbell Advice

If you are worried about corrosion. The Rogue bar and the Rogue Weightlifting bar both have black zinc coating on the shaft and chrome on the sleeves. The black zinc is excellent and standing up to corrosion whild providing a much better grip than chrome.

Re: Barbell Advice

Someone else will have to chime in. I do not yet have experience with Pendlay's NEXGEN bars.

Re: Barbell Advice

The NexGen bars all have Bright Zinc coating, which looks clear. It has a great feel, much better than chrome.
