OneFitWonder Axel bar Review by Doug:
I looked high and low for an axle bar that was 45 lbs.
The Axle Barbell (“Fat Bar”) is 44 lbs. without the collars and with the collars that come with it 46 lbs. I placed it on a scale at home and these are the numbers I came up with. I could care less about the bar being made in China.
It is a solid piece of gear and good luck finding one of this quality with the collars for the same price. I have used this bar to replace my standard barbell for just about every barbell movement I perform.
I am really psyched as my grip would be the first to go on heavy deadlifts and now I can work on using my body to get strong.
Every few weeks I have been able to do heavier farmers walk with heavy dumbbells also so that is a big plus. I am going to keep on using the fat bar as this is a ticket to get really strong.
Fringesport Axel bar review by Jimmy:
I’m a gym rat since 1971. Fat bar training has been in my regime since 03. The FringeSport axel bar is very well made and the bar ends actually allow the use of quick clips and all other style clamps. Big plus there. I added .5lb discs making the total weight 45lbs. The welding of the stops is superb.
I bought a fat bar from the Watson company and the weld work was very sloppy. A+++ on this bar,the price and Fringe Sport. Best fitness company that I have ever dealt with bar none. No pun intended LOL.

Question: Which barbell do you use in your CrossFit gym?
Answer: We use the Fringesport barbell in our gym.
