Hi, was wondering what peoples thoughts are on the bollinger break down combo bar?
It is basically an ez bar, but can be split in half via a “snap lock” motin, akin to the side thingies that screw into dumbells to lock the weights in place(forgot the name). Theres also whats called a safty ring which you can tighten, which doesn’t seem to do much and a lock pin.
I bought one of these on ebay, and people selling them on the net claim they are up to rrp $139, but the only places selling them seem to be selling them at cleareance prices. Also, mine had a slight bit of surface rust of the "female half of the bar.
it can be viewed here:
I have no idea when it comes to equipment, and just wanted to be reassured that this is a safe thing to use…i’m guessing most people havent seem it, but hopefully someone has.
I mean, the thing i’m most scared about is the bar giving way when im lifting and having 50 kg whack me in the feet!! Or would steel slowly bend and give me a CLEAR indication that it was going to buckle under pressure(assuming i gradually increase weight load each time I lifted).
hope someone can help!!
