I've been using my Team Barbell 2.0 for about a year now, I waited to jump into a rave review to see if it would stand the test of time. I have only have 205 pounds worth of weights in my garage gym (including the bar) so I can't attest the durability under the heavy load of 350-400 pound deadlifts. What I can say is I have used olympic barbells for olympic style lifting and crossfit in gyms across the country, and military and government facilities around the world, and have NEVER used a bar as nice as this one. The flex, knurling, and especially the spin are the highest quality I have ever found in any bar . I have don't have any 800 dollar bars to compare it to, but for the price you will never go wrong with this bar. Period. I have used it in the heat of the summer, and in the driveway when its snowing, I have left it in the garage and storage units for months at a time with no rust issues, and left it leaning up against the wall for several months when I was overseas without a bending issue. I recommend this bar to everyone in the market for a home gym. I can't say enough good things.
