Im building a homegym but can’t find fully stainless steel bars- shaft plus sleeves. The only Ive seen is rep fitness but the sleeve length isnt enough. Most sleeves stop around 41-43cm. The cerberus squat bar has 50s but its has a zinc coat. The bastard squat bar has 46 but it uses nickel coating. I dont want to spend hundreds on a bar and still deal with rust. It seems like the only coat that lasts is cerakote but I haven’t seen any with the loadable length and that coat cant be on the shaft for racking.
The reason I need longer sleeves is plate thickness. I cannot get rubber coated plates at a good price with covid&shipping. I secured some but the plates are about an inch thicker than average so for 8plates thats 44cm @5.5 each.
