    Rackable Cambered Bar

    Thinking about picking up a rackable cambered bar, I haven't ever used one before so seeing if there are any brands I should look at/avoid. Leaning towards Rogue at the moment since they seem to have a good price while being made in the US, though shipping makes it a little less affordable. Wasn't sure if there was a lesser known brand that makes a good one. Any thoughts?

    If you mean an SSB bar- mine was 179 dollars- cheap as I could get yet rated to 700 lbs.

    Try and find one with center knurling otherwise you'll be using hockey tape like the rest of us.

    An SSB is not a camber bar. They are two very different bars.

    This is what the OP is referring to.

    I don't think I've see any of them with that but it does seem like it would be useful. Now that you've mentioned it, I have seen hockey tape on a number of them in videos.

    Well it becomes a necessity. You're dealing with a smooth 1-1/2" bar on top.

    Unless there's a unicorn out there, it doesn't seem like one with knurling exists

    The one I bought from elitefts years ago has knurling on it (great knurling, imo), but maybe they don't sell that version any more.

    Craigslist, facebook marketplace, etc may be worth looking into.

    I couldn't tell from the pictures so I contacted them and theirs does have center knurling so looks like that's the one to get. Thanks!

    In case OP hasn't bought one yet...
    I have one of the old cambered squat bars from Elitefts (very early 2000s). It has no knurling. I wrapped the bar with athletic tape & it's held up fairly well. I'd say for at least 6 years with about once a week worth of use. I wouldn't worry too much about having knurling. The bar will swing if you let it & very aggressive knurling would be more of a detriment than anything else.
