    This bar is being used at my local YMCA, and the crazy thing is that a guy who benches 385 1RM will actually go out of his way to use this bar, I've even traded him bars before so he could use it and his form looks fine. At what point does a barbell like this become hazardous? It's amazing someone would choose to bench with this.

    This is my last month with a Y membership before starting the garage gym, and spending a little money on good equipment will be well worth it.

    Well I guess I've got two questions.
    1) Is it straight?
    2) Those sleeves look crooked for sure. Do they actually rotate?

    The sleeve on one side appears to have been coming unscrewed and someone must have lifted with it and jammed the threading where it no longer rotates, the other side spins but not well. It's just crazy these pass as barbells!
