Due to the severe quality issues we had with our own Strongarm Buffalo bar, we searched for and found an alternate supplier for a quality Buffalo. One of our regular suppliers also produces items for the Strengthshop, and was able to sell us some of their Buffalo's.
A fully chromed bar, very high quality, with a medium knurl, it's an excellent short term replacement for our bar, which should be back in August.
The Buffalo Bar is designed to help you lift heavy weights comfortably. The center line and power marks ensure a good start position and the well knurled, nickel plated shaft keeps you in position throughout your lifts.
The bow in the bar enables a comfortable squat position even for those with limited shoulder mobility while still mimicking a traditional squat in both movement and weight distribution. On bench press, the bar angle places the hands into a more anatomical position and helps to alleviate wrist strain while also increasing range of motion and further activating the muscles of the chest. The 35mm shaft disperses the pressure both across the back and the hands when used for heavy training.

Originally wanted to get the strong arm Buffalo bar but went with this one because I’d been delayed by every company on the planet and just couldn’t wait any longer to get my hands on a buffalo bar. Barbell shipped from Canada fast! Came to me in immaculate condition. Although it wasn’t fully knurled and didn’t have the orange, I didn’t really care. It Really opens the chest up with wide grip bench, and sits nice for low bar squats. I love the 35mm shaft more activation of the chest, the knurling is alright a little on the soft side for me but it gets the job done. it’s a great find for anyone looking for a Buffalo bar on a budget. It’s reliable, functional, clean and at the end of the day it makes putting the work in the gym that much more rewarding. Working with Mike was great he’s honest and upfront with everything. Definitely a returning customer.
