After gaining immense reputation in the gym equipment market, CAP Barbell introduced itsspecial type of barbells that are customized through color coating weightlifting bars.

The additive accu-coating is a special type of coating that prevents the bar from getting rust and corrosion by working as an armor on the barbell. With accu-coating there is also a standard chrome coat available, that works the same as accu-coat. The coating is further initialized with a three step coat process in which the colored coat of blue, red, purple and pink barbell is facilitated by a UV stable acrylic coat which takes the protection and design of the Beast Bar to a new level. There is a thing to note that every bar consists the of same durability, except of green and orange coated bar which have a matt finish.

The knurling done on the barbell is kept very moderate and is also known as diamond knurl. The bar is very comfortable and easy to stick in your hands tightly which will let you perform high intensity workout very securely.

Final Verdict and Review
In my opinion, the CAP Barbell comes with a very new invention of accu-coat and three layered protections by producing its new product, the Beast Bar. I purchased this barbell looking towards its design and look, while also having some new cool features like accu-coat, three layered coating and comfortable knurls. The barbell came on my doorstep within three days and was in a very good packaging. The sturdy box kept the barbell in good shape and the finish on it looked very fresh. I ordered the bar having a blue colored finish, which I will say was very eye-warming. When it comes to performance, the barbell produced a very repetitive spin due to the brass bushings which were constructed very well. Having a low tensile strength made the bar much more whipper and it was very easy to perform cleans on it. The dual knurl IPF marks adjusted on my hands immensely well without damaging my hand texture. The only issue I faced was having no center knurl, which prevented me to perform squat in this beautiful piece of equipment.
- Tensile strength of 130,000 makes this barbell much whipper.
- Weight capacity of 1000 pounds is very massive and fits perfectly well for beginners to professional weight lifters.
- The three layer coat gives an immense protection towards the barbell.
- Accu-coat lets you choose your barbell in desirable color.
- The dual knurl marks let you properly adjust your hands on the shaft.
- The Beast Bar is a bit expensive than CAP barbell’s standard bar.
- Professional weightlifters might not prefer this bar because of medium depth knurling.
- The brass bushing doesn’t give a proper spin in heavier weight.
- The bar is not really recommended to perform squats because of extensive whip.
