Pros & Cons

What we like about the product...

  1. 205,000 PSI tensile strength
  2. Durable black zinc coating
  3. Center knurling

What needs improvement...

  1. Only one set of knurling marks
  2. Not budget-friendly

Product Summary & Specs

The Tru Grit Black Zinc Bar is a durable barbell perfect for people who train with Olympic lifts or stick to traditional weightlifting. It has a tensile strength of 205,000 pounds-per-square-inch, so it should be able to hold just about everything you throw at it.

We love that this bar has center knurling for additional grip during heavy squats, but wish it had a second set of knurling marks for those who do powerlifting movements. That said, this bar does utilize a bearings-style spinning mechanism rather than bushings.

At a little less than $300, minus shipping, this isn’t the most expensive barbell but it’s also not the most budget-friendly. But we still think it’s a great value for most home gym owners.
