It is amatter of choices
Our Olympic Bar is made exclusively from high-grade steel, producing a shaft with 235,000 PSI tensile strength. The goal is to create just the right amount of “whip” or “flex” needed for competitive Olympic lifting.
Combined with 8 sets of top-quality needle bearings and Stainless Steel bushing, the result is a barbell with a smooth, consistent, quieter spin yet the most durable bar.
The Soviet Magnus Barbell was made with a Competition Standard Knurl with center knurling. Barbells with Competition Standard Knurl will be sharper because it focuses on the lift with one repetition so that it will feel more solid when used.
Magnus Soviet Barbell is a full commercial grade barbell designed to IWF specifications. MAGNUS Soviet Barbell is an ideal barbell for those who want to learn Olympic Lifting or a serious athlete.
