Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • The nickel is Sold Out but what's the price?

    Nickel Squat Bars are $799.99

  • Is bare steel an option?

    Hey Steven,

    We've chosen not to offer an unplated version of these bars, so clear zinc will be the base finish

  • could you please explain the types of finishes with the pros and cons of each. And then would you mind giving me your own personal preference? Thank you! Cant wait to order the bar!!!

    Hey Kim,

    The zinc and electroless nickel finishes are the most corrosion resistant and won't ever rust. The black oxide is mildly corrosion resistant and will be fine in climate controlled environments but can still rust in humid ones. The electroless nickel finish is technically harder but we've never had issues with any of our zinc products during regular use. It will also keep it's shine for a lot longer than the zinc will.

  • I forgot one other ? - Sorry . The end of the bar - Does it have a hex bolt or snap ring for disassembly? I look forward to receiving your answers. Thank-you very much!!

    It uses a snap ring.

  • Your bushings - How do they compare to needle bearings? Does the bar require maintenance? The pic of the bar by itself - what finish is it? Do you have a pic you could post of the bar in each of the three finishes? Thank-you!

    As for the bushings vs. bearings, the bushing doesn't let the bar spin as much.  However, the bushings are much stronger.  

    The bar does not require any maintenance.  

    We will have pictures of all three finishes soon, but if you want a picture sooner, the finishes on our duffalo bars are the same, and are available on our website.

  • I was wondering if the knurling extends the entire length of the bar (with a center mark and two side marks, i.e. the Texas Squat bar, etc) or is the knurling like the regular power bar?

    It is knurled like a regular power bar.

  • Does the knurling go across the entire bar, or are there gaps where the bar sits on the rear delts?

    The bar is not knurled over the entire length, there is a 12 inch piece of center knurling, a 5 inch gap on each side of that, and then 16 inches of knurling to the outside of the bar. 

  • The quality of your duffalo bar brings me here first to purchase a new bar. I’m looking for a bar i can use to squat and perform OLY lifting with. Please help

    Thanks for the interst in the Duffalo Bar! It's a great tool for back and front squats, as well as bench and incline pressing. However to be honest I would not reccomend this bar for movements such as clean/snatch/jerk and there variations. We are looking into producing a specific Olympic bar in the distanct future, but I don't want you to purcahse a bar that dose not fit your needs.
