One thing pointed out by a couple of customers is that this barbell is a little tough to use for deadlifts due to the very light and gentle knurling which some people may actually prefer to hard knurling when doing high bar squats etc. and other than that it will pretty much do the job just fine for a low cost pro grade barbell: Good balance point, Olympic knurl ring spacing, tight cap ends, very good spin, very durable with very high weight capacity, chrome finish and not so deep knurling as the only con we can see it is a great barbell at an affordable price. In the box you will only get the single barbell and no plates or collars are included and they need to be purchased separately and you won’t need to do any maintenance work on this very solid bar with chrome finish. Titan Fitness brand belongs to the company called Titan Distributors Inc. based in Collierville, Tennessee and they seem to have a genuine focus on customer satisfaction and the products they offer come with one year limited warranty and they will either repair, replace or refund, and the price under hundred bucks seems fair for this good quality and design product.
