So, you don't get the bar?

@bund9032: You're right. It doesn't say it includes the bar, and for that reason I am not going to buy it now. Thanks for calling that out. I would have missed it.

@bund9032: You do get the bar. Click on 'specifications' and then 'read more specifications'. It details the weight, color and grip of the included bar.

@bund9032: Hi, this is John from mygofer. It does come with the weight bar. If you click the owners manual PDF on the right hand side of the page, you can see a parts list on page #9 of the document and #8 on the list is the bar. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

It's just 80lbs, and the bar is only 4lbs. Your average bar is going to be around 45lb, and 80lb isn't all that much to bench.

Do you have to put the sand in the weights too?

Not sure why my comment got down voted - because I didn't click on the owner's manual to see what's included instead of looking at the product page????

Anyway, thanks to @pinheadbal and @mygofer for clearing it up. I will also mention it does come with the spring clips, which isn't listed in the product information but is listed in the manual, which is a nice bonus.

Great price for the equipment, and you can always pick up used weights to add on through craiglist or a used sport equipment store fairly cheap.

@jm42: The owner's manula refers to "weight plates" with certain weights, so I don't think there is any sand involved.

@mygofer: Knowing theres consumers asking about specifics such as if the bar is included and if the weights are sand, how come you don't update the item description on the web page to included these things now that you see the flaw? It's obvious that details will effect sales.

so are the weights metal plates or are they the classy plastic encased concrete?

Is this the same set that Ronnie Coleman uses?

Lots of places to hang and fold laundry. No bar? That sucks, I hang my slacks on the bar... I'm out.

@911paramedic: it does come with the bar as mentioned in the comments above.

I wanted to add, for someone like me who was interested in this, that this company isn't worth it. I got the package looking like a pack of wolves tore it up and missing a bunch of parts. Calling and emailing the customer service department has gotten me nothing but the sound of crickets.
