I recently bought this bar for my daughter so she had a bar at the house. This bar is probably the best bang for your buck you can get and she loves it. It has better whip than the Rogue bars at our gym and the spin is awesome. The knurling on the bar gives the perfect amount of grip. Many other bars can be way to aggressive and tear your hands up.
Ordered the bar five days ago and received it today. Came in stuff cardboard tube with secured end caps and was wrapped in plastic within.
Most bars I’ve reviewed have come very oily from the factory, but this was not the case with this bar. That does not mean by any standard that it was shipped or stored poorly, and it is in pristine condition.
The cerakote finish is beautiful, and the loadable ends spin more freely than any other more expensive name brand bar I’ve encountered.
There are details to this bar that aren’t easily identified in the pictures, including a subdued area on each end with the archon logo, which just looks amazing, and the knurling is perfect.
I’m a function-over-styling guy but have to say this bar appealed to me for several reasons:
1) appears to be durable, and has excellent specs as far as spin, max load and durability
2) styling that’s reminiscent of artistic pieces (i.e. Apple products versus competitors)
3) lifetime warranty for material defects
I am PROUD to own this bar and look forward to many years of use!
Received my barbell a few weeks ago, but wanted to put it through some workouts before writing a review. With that being said this barbell is awesome. Absolute steal for the price, and it is still a great deal after shipping costs. This is my first cerakote barbell and it feels amazing. Excellent whip coming from the needle bearings. Trust me, I sell bearings and needle bearings are the way to go!! Knurling feels awesome, not too light but also not jagged like some of the barbells are commercial gyms. Now I will say that I don’t have a whole lot of weight plates at home just yet so the most I’ve put on this barbell is 225 lbs which it handles perfectly fine to no surprise. Feels great for cleans, squats, presses and pulls. Came in excellent packaging inside of a sturdy tube with metal end caps that were screwed and wired on. Barbell comes with a bit of a grease coating on the ends which just needs to be wiped off unless you don’t mind it which I didn’t. Customer service was absolutely great and shipping through ups was on time and easy to track. And last but not least the aesthetic of the bar is very pleasing.
Just received this bar in the mail. First off the barbell was packed extremely well and arrived unharmed. The bar itself is beautiful and very appealing to the eye. Can’t wait to try this barbell out this week. Will post another review after trying the barbell out.
Great bar very passive knurling. Bearings are smooth. Very nice looking!!
This is a "stunning" bar that will last for years in what I consider to be a commercial-grade garage gym we share with a couple long-time lifting buddies. When COVID-19 hit we went to training separation and CDC cleaning protocol . From nine months of frequent bar cleaning post-workout (1-4 times a day between us all) .. is rust sets in. Commercial gyms (now open again) will start finding this out.
The quality of the bar and smooth movement of is clearly most impressive but, just as important , is the unique Cerakote (military application) protective finish! It's worth its weight in gold with only a minor price up-tick. Archon is on to something!
Oh, as for the packaging with us also owning the Archon multi-grip bar, its over-the-top! A+ on both products and your company – impressive additions to our facility!
This is such a high quality barbell that is priced just right. Great shipping, the bar is shipped in a VERY hard cylinder cardboard box and packed so well its commendable. Well done Archon.
First of all, I’m the type that went through six bikes and five kayaks until I found what I wanted. And with that I found that higher cost does not correlate with higher quality. So now that I’m working out at home I wanted a better bar. I was nervous though about getting one because how do you know till you try it out? Out of about 50 at the gym there was one or two that always seemed better. I didn’t really notice a big difference with a bar except when it came to cleans and deadlifts. Especially for the grip with dead lift, for both gripping and for not turning in your hand. This bar is exactly what I wanted. The knurling is just right; the weights can shift and don’t pull on your hand. This bar felt smaller in my hand to grip, which felt better. I measured it at 29.4. I was curious so I went back and measured and the other bars all measured bigger. Order it and wait for it
This is bad ass bar! Its sleek, beautiful, and can take the punishment! We have a USAPL gym and team that uses this bar and they absolutely love it!
Our oldest boy is 29 years old and I have had my original bar since before he was born. Just received my new bar today and I can't believe how beautiful and rugged it is! We are sure to get lots of heavy use from this new bar!
Ordered on April 7th, received today on the 10th. I’m only 1 year into Olympic weightlifting, but it seems to be a great bar for the value with good spin, great whip, and medium knurling. I’ll update in a month.
I currently own the LXJ E1 bar, and used to have an XTE elite comp bar. I’m really glad I sold my XTE bar and took a chance on this. Packaging was super secure (get ready to bust out that screwdriver) and the knurling is about medium I’d say since the E1 bar has been described as having a light cut. I find this great because I didn’t need chalk for my workout, but it may be harsh for crossfit if you’re cycling through multiple reps, comes down to preference. Spin and whip are great – comparable to the E1 bar with the E1 bar spinning a bit more freely. Still, you can tell these are needle bearings. The cerakote finish extends to the sleeves which have Archon imprinted on the each side.
I wish there were more color and sleeve finish combos. Packaging is very secure and I appreciate the lightening fast shipping, but could be more frustration-free.
Hi Chelsea. We are actually considering more options for colors. The challenge is that color pallets are large, so maybe we will perform an online survey at some point to see what possible wishlists will look like. We appreciate the feed back.
