The bar has a moderate whip allows optimal performance on clean and jerks, or snatches.
These bars are manufactured with much higher grade steel than many others on the market, therefore allowing them to be a smaller diameter. This decrease in the diameter of the bar is crucial to optimizing your ability to grip heavy loads and lift your absolute maximum on all lifts. Never again will you need to have your personal bests held back by grip failure
