Great performance for a great price Review by Toe

Overall
Matt's service was excellent. He patiently answered my numerous questions about the different ATX Bars and then followed up to ensure I was comfortable doing happy.

The bar is truly excellent. As said on a number of the reviews, it is essentially a European TPB. The quality is top notch, it's smooth with little roll and the knurling is deep enough to grip but soft enough not to shred your hands with high rep work.

You will not be disappointed, it's a great bar and a far higher quality than the pictures can represent.

A high quality barbell originating in Europe and therefore undercutting American alternatives on price Review by Wayne

Overall
I have been using the RAM bar for around a month now after spending c.3 years with a basic Strength Shop bar. The quality of the RAM exceeded my expectations.

Knurl - The knurl is very grippy but does not feel course in the hand. This makes it ideal for rep work. I've not had any callous problems or nips with it so no complaints.

Finish - The black oxide finish is something I am used to with my other bar, but as always it is a great feeling in the hand. The sleeves are really smooth however so if ordering make sure and collar up for heavy squats to avoid any plates sliding around (or just use better plates than I do!)

Spin - Not too much spin which is ideal in a power bar. What spin there is seems smooth and quiet.

Price - I think the price is fair. There is not much information online about this bar as it is less widely used than the likes of Rogue. This is in part due to it being a European brand. This means, for us in the EU, that the price undercuts importing a Texas or Rogue barbell and the finished product is at least up to scratch.

Customer service - Matt was patient and happy to help with my numerous queries before ordering. Would definitely use TGR again for other equipment.

Overall a great bar and I would have no hesitations adding more ATX equipment to the collection. (Posted on 20/01/2017)

I thought I reviewed this but oh well. I have had this bar for months now and have only had up to 190 KG on it and it was not even bothered about that. lol It is my first proper bar but I am glad I went with this. It looks great and I love the RAM BAR inserts on the ends!

Good friendly service and email communication too - thank you! (Posted on 10/01/2017)

Having had the ram bar for nearly 6 weeks can tell you this is a great bit of kit, nice knurling really grippy but dosent cuts your hands to pieces, feels great and looks fantatstic! Mat really helpfull and quick to reply to messages aswell which assured me. If you live in america then yes the tpb makes senses but in the uk this is a no brainer. (Posted on 16/11/2016)
Excellent Review by David

I had been looking for a good bar for ages. Whenever I saw what I thought was a good one I would notice or read about a flaw with it. I’m not a man easily pleased with things so the search seemed to never end. I almost purchased a TPB but when I found the gym revolution site and read about the ATX Ram bar It seemed to fit all my needs well. I left it in the shopping cart and continued to use my old bar while I thought about it. A few month down the line there was a knock on the door and there it was all packed up well. My wife had bought it for my birthday present! She said she was able to keep it hidden from me because the email responses with Matt were very fast . Well having used the bar for a few workouts now I’m extremely impressed with it. Appearance wise looks great. Knurling not overly sharp but sharp enough. great for working out with as doesn’t tear your hands up while at the same time grips really well. Great price for a bar of this quality Overall one extremely happy lifter. (Posted on 23/02/2016)

I've had the ATX Ram bar for nearly 2 weeks now and I've used it for every exercise and cannot find fault with it. It feels better than much more expensive bars I've handled. The knurling is perfect and i love the Ram head at the end of the bar too! 5 stars from me! I'd recommend this bar to any gym user and gym owner from bodybuilding to powerlifting!

Stunning bar. Grip wise, no other bar comes close! Review by Richard John

Hi Matt

The bar arrived on Friday in perfect order, I'm sure that comes as no surprise to yourself, given the excellent way that the bar was packaged. Having said that, unpacking the bar was a real challenge haha.

Visually the bar is stunning, on first sight the knurling, looks and feels a little light, but once you pick up the bar it feels just right. Your description of the knurling is very apt, as you described, the bar feels dry in the hand, as for grip, I currently have seven olympic bars in the gym, from numerous manufacturers and the quality and feel of the bars varies greatly. The good news for you is that grip wise no other bar in my gym comes close to this bar.

I have a small commercial gym, located within my leisure holiday park, it has an eclectic mix of cardio and weight training equipment. When it comes down to machines, bars, etc , some of the regular users have strong opinions and of course when I purchase new equipment many of them are only too willing to critique the new kit. So far the Power Ram Bar has received some very favourable reviews, in fact one of my members, an extremely strong and knowledgable ex power lifter, who usually finds fault with anything new in the gym, really loves the bar.

You have some very interesting products on the site, I think I may need to extend the gym haha. Seriously, I am sure that we can do business in the future, I wish you every success in your fledgling venture, with your existing track record, vast knowledge and wonderful customer service, i'm sure that you will go from strength to strength.

Regards

Richard

PS No pun intended.

Exactly was I was looking for Review by DerekC

First off I will like to say the service provided by Matt was excellent. I emailed him more than a few times with questions and he got back to me very promptly and was very helpful.

I have used the bar for about 7 workouts now and so far it meets and surpasses in most cases my expectations. I was using a Texas Power Bar for a while but couldn't justify the cost for my home gym, after checking around this was the closest comparison I could find. Well I can tell you this if you’re are looking a TPB you will not be disappointed with this bar.

The knurling is great not as rough as the TPB but still just as grippy in the hand. I didn't expect it but this showed through on the bench more than the other lifts, the TPB was quite uncomfortable for a long bench session but I get just as good a grip (if not better) and my hands aren't ruined afterwards. As for the other lifts its been great, for squatting the knurling is about perfect, doesn't rip my back to shreds, but feels very secure.

If you are in the market for a powerlifting bar do yourself a favour and get one of these.

Awesome bit of kit and a great company to buy from Review by Mickeyboy

Overall
Like a lot of people, I scoured the internet reading review after review of the Texas Power Bar, Rogue bars, Again Faster, Strength Shop Bastard Bar and couldn't reconcile the price against quality. Everyone seemed to say that whichever bar they bought was the best.

I happened onto thegymrevolution.co.uk after watching Eddie Hall use the Deadlift Deadeners and saw Matt's range of products. After a lot of careful consideration and a nice chat on the phone with Matt, I ordered an ATX Ram Bar.

It arrived earlier this week and was very well packaged, in fact unpacking it was a good forearm workout!

On first inspection the bar is of extremely high quality you can tell just by picking it up. I'm a very tactile and kinesthetic person, so love the feel of well engineered stuff. The knurling is just right. Not tear your hands apart cheesegrater like the reviews of the Texas Power Bar, but the perfect amount of grip and traction to work with.

First session with the bar was squats, (high bar, low bar and front) . The bar has a centre knurling which really grips on your traps, rear delt shelf and I was able to load up in the front rack position without the knurling tearing my throat. The balance of the bar and grip together with the centre knurling gave me a lot of confident in my squats, much more then my previous bar.

Second session was deadlifts. Again, perfect amount of grip and 'stiction'. The bar gives you that great feeling when you're deadlifting without straps and are able to get your hands around the bar and push the ground away without your grip being a factor.

I have to say that I have used a lot of barbells in the past, including the Rogue 2.0 and this feels as good if not better. It doesn't spin like a full needle bearing bar (I believe that there are other ATX bars better suited to full Oly or Crossfit lifts) and you probably wouldn't want to snatch with this bar, but for power lifts, including cleans, it is just awesome! I cannot fault it in any way.

This website is great too and the owner, Matt was extremely helpful and took time to run through the range of bars with me, to ensure I had the type that was best for me. 10/10 for service and delivery was spot on too. It's great to find a company that stocks high quality strength and lifting gear as there is so much crap on the internet. Word of mouth and honest reviews from other lifters go miles to helping people find equipment that will last a long time.

Also get yourself a set of Deadlift Deadeners from here. If you have a home gym like me. Your missis and garage floor will thank you for it!

I was looking for a high quality barbell for home use and came across the ATX Ram bar. It seemed to tick all of the box's on paper & after a couple of emails, which were answered really quickly, an order was placed.

The bar arrived a couple of days later and its everything i was hoping for. The fit and finish are spot on. The knurling is perfect, really grippy without being overly sharp. Overall an amazing bar for the price and i'm looking forward to using it for years to come.

The service from The Gym Revolution was first class. Keep up the good work!! (Posted on 21/09/2015)
