Eleiko training bar review by Morgan
Just received the Eleiko training bar. My only other quality bar was a Texas Power Bar, so this is my first, true, 28mm oly bar. Finish is second to none – the black is very, very nice. The knurling on the Texas Power Bar was very sharp. This bar is more like a rough sand paper – very subtle, but effective. The Eleiko Oly bar – 20 kg, men has a center knurl which is even lighter, but enough for back squatting – you can barely feel the center knurl so it wont tear up your chest either. I’ll post up more when the bar gets some use. I’m anxious to feel how it responds to some cleans and DL’s.

Ivanko barbell Review by BL
Whippy as a mother ****er. 4+ plates and you will be bouncing around. Great for deadlifts. For squats it’s damn near suicide depending how strong your are. I tore my forearm squatting on one because of the flex. It’s almost a god damn texas dl bar

Eleiko Bar Review by Wasatch Damon
Quality 5 out of 5 stars
When you only want the best – I train on this bar 4 days a week and quite possibly love it as much as my 3 sons. Initially the knurling was very aggressive but I’ve gotten used to it. Otherwise it’s the best bar I’ve ever used. There is a noticeable difference in the whip and spin compared to a Rogue bar and I find this bar to be much easier on my wrists and shoulders. Would highly recommend you splurge. One caveat: This bar has never been in a squat rack and never will be, it’s for Oly only. Review for: Eleiko Bars. Pendlay bar vs Eleiko training bar
Ivanko barbell review by Geek
I was able to score a Ivanko OBX-20kg on Craigslist last Friday for $200. It is an awesome bar. The knurling is much deeper than my econo-bar and it just has a better “quality” feel to it all together. I am also an Ivanko junkie so take that for what it’s worth.

Eleiko bar Review by Greg Kemp
We have 20 Eleiko training bars at the high school I coach. We have about 5 from 1993 and only one have we had issues with not spinning any longer. Our bars are in heavy use day in and day out almost 50 Weeks of the year. The Eleiko have held up the best and about every other bar we have tried to use had not lasted like the Eleiko, including 2 Rogue Bars we bought last year. The Rogues are OK bars but not up to the Eleiko standard. We do all of our O-lifts and squats with these bars. I would say pony up for it now and you will never need to buy another bar again. Pendlay bar vs Eleiko training bar.
