Great piece of kit. The padding isn't the highest quality with the Velcro and stitching already frayed on arrival. Another issue is the kinks aren't wide enough and therefore the bar doesn't sit evenly on the holders of my squat rack. Only out by a couple of cm's but my own fault for not measuring correctly.
The bar itself is superb!

Really good value squat bar compared to some more expensive options on the market. Works perfectly with comfortable pads that don't move the bar too far from your body

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our safety squat barbell. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to continuing to serve you in the future.
Bar handles too wide for narrow shoulders/smaller stature, you'd have to chicken wing your arms, otherwise bar pads rest on shoulder bone (my shoulder with is ~45cm) and gets uncomfortable. Maybe thicken pads with some fabric.
Bar quality is ok, could be better. Bearings in mine have bigger gaps when compared to my IronEdge barbell, welding is ok, some weld stains leftover I assume. Pads are good quality, firm and supportive, just that the handles are too wide.
Bar handles have no angle in relation to the camber, so the weight may be pressing down on your neck. You'd have to find a good position so the bar doesn't pressure your neck, which is not a good thing to have.
For the price this ForceUSA SSB is great, but you would compromise a bit of quality and safety (in my opinion).
The best would be from IronEdge with a deeper camber and angled handles but costs over 100 more, and handles look just as wide.
