Bought this for my son 18 months ago. He only presses 180 lbs, but the bar now has a bend in it. Spoke with Sears, as well as Weider, but both only say 90 day warrenty. Bar shouldn't bend with significantly less weight than even came with it. Now have to buy a new bar (not Weider). Would never buy from them again. Poor quality and don't stand by their product.
This bar was great for a couple years, then started to bend when my husband put more than two 45 lb plates on each end.
overall quality is OK, but misses one 2.5lb and the collar missing one plastics wrap.
This set comes with everything you need except dumbell bars, nice solid weight set.
Very happy with the weights I purchased. Weights are easy to carry and load onto the bar. Bar is sturdy and well built. Only concern is how the bar was packaged. Made it difficult to carry and had to remove from the box in order to transport.
