Our Thick Grip EZ Curl Bar will take your overall strength to new levels!

 

Training with thick grip bars has been around for years but lately athletes are starting to realise the huge gains that can be made, not only to grip strength, but to all over power by training with thick grip bars.

 

The Watson Thick Grip EZ Curl Bars are extremely strong yet not overly heavy so they can be used for exercises such as reverse curls as well as the usual larger compound movements.

 

Thick grip bar training recruits more muscle fibres than training with a regular bar and is also better on the joints.

 

This Watson Thick Grip EZ Curl Bar can be manufactured at 2”, 2.5” or 3” thicknesses and is 4’6” long.

 

It is designed to take either standard or olympic plates and we also offer a long version of this bar which will allow you to use it in a Power Rack and load the plates on the outside of the rack.

  • 2” Thick Grip EZ Curl Bar weighs 8 kg and has a capacity of 300 kg.
  • 2.5” Thick Grip EZ Curl Bar weighs 10 kg and has a capacity of 350 kg.
  • 3” Thick Grip EZ Curl Bar weighs 12 kg and has a capacity of 380 kg.

 

This bar is also available with our new roller bearing revolving sleeves which run on twin bearings and are incredibly smooth no matter how much weight is on the bar.

Orders shipped outside EU

Once your order has been manufactured and dispatched from Watson HQ, you will automatically be assigned to an agent who will help you to clear your shipment when it arrives. The contact details of your agent can be found on the Bill of Lading. You will receive this once we have received confirmation that the ship has actually set sail. You can also use the information on the Bill of lading to track your shipment. If you have your own agent that you want to use to clear your shipment, that is fine, please send us the details at the time of ordering, or at least one week prior to shipping.

USA Customers Only

You will need a customs broker to help you clear your shipment. You cannot do this by yourself. If you do not have one that is fine, we can put you in touch with a customs broker that we use for all of our customers in the States that do not have one. A power of attorney will need to be set up so that they can act on your behalf and help you clear the shipment.

Please note: We simply cannot ship anything to the States without this being in place. Failure to get this sorted ahead of time will effect shipping times.

Import Tax & Duties

As you are ordering from outside the UK there is not VAT on your order. Once the goods arrive at port there will be import taxes / duties and customs clearance costs that must be paid for by the importer of goods before the shipment can be released and delivered. These costs are not included in your shipping quote. We have no control over these costs and they vary country to country. Usually a small percentage of your total order value. For further information please contact your local tax office.

Once import tax and duties have been paid, your shipment will then get released from customs and become available for delivery. The shipping agent assigned to your shipment will be in contact with you to arrange a suitable delivery time. If you do not hear from anyone after you have paid customs charges, please do not hesitate to call your agent listed on the bill of lading, or contact us and we can chase it up for you.

Deliveries are usually made during normal working hours which can vary country to country. If you need a specific time window for delivery please let us know at the time of ordering, there will be an extra charge. All deliveries are made to kerbside ONLY.

It is also strongly advised to have a few extra hands to help you unload and move things into place. Depending on what you have ordered, we may be able to ship on single pallets therefore a forklift is not required. Single Pallets can be unloaded via tail gate which is on the back of the truck. It will still then be your responsibility to move the items into place.. If you are unsure whether your order/delivery requires a forklift, please enquire.

This is my second bar from Watson being the happy owner of a 2″ Bar already and I am just as happy with this one, the bar not only looks great, having the usual Watson build quality, but feels amazing when in use, I would previously use fat grips on standard EZ bars and the difference in feel when using the Watson 2″ EZ Bar is very pronounced, basically this bar is the Mutts Nuts.

I love this bar, ordered the wide version so it fits on the power rack for ease of loading and added the Ultra Smooth Revolving ends too which, as well as being silky smooth in use also add to the outstanding look of this bar.

This was my 1st use of a thicker bar so went for the 2″ and the difference is certainly reflected in the added workout for grip and forearms.

Bought the 2″ version with smooth ends. Definitely worth every penny, the quality is literally bomb proof! Really pleased. It’s a decent weight too, I think approx 8 kg. The only trouble is once you’ve used a thick bar, any other curl bar feels weedy.. So beware, watch your friends when they use this. Can’t wait to get some more bars from Watson. British made, top quality, support UK products!

The Thick Grip EZ Curl Bar is my first from Watson Gym Equipment. I ordered the 2″ with Ultra Smooth Revolving Ends. the quality is amazing and it looks great. My armtraining feels more effektive. Grip strength and forearms getting better. This is the best kombination of good looking and working
equipment.

Went for the 3″, it’s insane. I’d go for 2″ with the collars if I was to buy again. The build is typical of Watson, beastly. The finish is the black matchbox grip, add some liquid chalk and it’s glued to your hands. If you want to have a bar like a Lorry exhaust then the 3″ may be for you but I’m finding it thick for my hands. I have the 2″ 7ft bar and it’s a better fit but it’s nice to change it up a bit. Bulldog or lockjaw clamps are a must, my springs and bison clamps are so tight I need to hammer them on.

I got the 2″ grip with revolving sleeves and could not be happier. This was my first purchase from Watson and I quickly saw what all the fuss is about…the quality of the bar is absolutely outstanding! the inner and outer grip angle is perfect for me and the revolving sleeves are as smooth as butter. Great job Watson!

Just recently bought the 2″ ez bar to go with an ultimate bar and safety squat bar bought previously. All 3 bars are used in a rugby club gym and go through a ton of work but I have no doubt that all will still be going strong in 15 years time and its that reliability and quality which you get from Watson that makes the difference. Only decision now is which bar to buy next.

I bought the 2″ rack length ez curl bar (without rotating ends) and I am incredibly pleased with the quality of the construction and fantastic no-slip feel to the finish. No burs or rough patches in the metal/welds, and the bar is well balanced in your hands (even with the power rack length). I highly recommend this product and encourage folks to take a look at all the other great products Watson has to offer, you won’t be disappointed.

I bought the standard length, 2″ thick version with revolving ends along with a thick grip Ultimate Bar. This was my first time buying from Watson Gym Equipment, and I was very happy with the whole process, from the weekly order updates to the quality of the products themselves. Shipping to the east coast of the United States was fairly quick, only taking about a month from order date to delivery. I would have no hesitation to buy from Watson’s again.

As for the EZ bar, I am extremely happy with the quality and performance. With the 2″ diameter, standard length and revolving ends, the bar weighs in at 13.7kg / 30.2 lbs. This is roughly double the weight of most standard diameter EZ bars you come across in gyms in the U.S., and for the purposes of gym use, the bar feels almost indestructible. The revolving ends are incredibly smooth when performing curl and extension movements, which is highly beneficial for someone like me who periodically experiences forearm/elbow tendinitis from strongman training. The gripping surface, while not knurled, has a light sandpaper/”matchbox” type of texture, and is very secure in your hands, especially when using chalk.

As stated by another reviewer, having an actual thick bar is vastly superior to using a product like Fat Gripz on a standard diameter bar, particularly the angled portions of an EZ bar, where the grips can slide and/or rotate on the surface of the bar. After using this bar for several sessions, I don’t think I could ever go back.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a thick grip EZ curl bar.

Along with a thick-grip Ultimate Bar, this (a 2″ standard length EZ Bar with revolving ends) was my first purchase from Watson and definitely won’t be my last. The Thick Grip makes a hell of a difference with my training and the build quality/finish of the bar and the revolving ends is endlessly impressive! I wish I’d known about Watson before spending money elsewhere when I first bought my own little gym, but I now ‘get’ why the gym company my PT is from has stacks and stacks of Watson kit…

Standard length, 2″ thick w/ revolving ends weighs in at 12 kg (26.6 lbs). Sleeve ends are 235 mm (9.25 in) in length per side, plenty long for a stack of plates. No fitment issues with OSO Titan collars. Order date to time of delivery was approximately two months to California. Powder coat is well done, though the welds could be cleaned up just a bit more. Certainly not the fit and finish of Eleiko in that respect, but you are paying less for a custom, thick training implement with a lifetime warranty versus ten years for the former. Annoyance: There is loose debris within the hollow of the bar which tumbles and resonates during lifts. Not an issue if you are lifting to tunes, though this seemingly minor quibble can become a major one if the trainee is unable to focus away from it during a session.

Best ez curl bar on the market by far, feels great in the hands when using, engineered to perfection and built like a battleship. Worth the extra outlay. Well done Watson’s!
