Elite H-Bar

Posted

Pros: very easy to set up, quick to put together, can be transported with very little space required

Cons: requires several guys

a great high bar for gymnasts of any level. It is cabled to he ground so the supports dont wobble. this makes for a great practice high bar and once you get use to that bar. Take it down and set it up for a home meet and rock your competition. That's your house!!

Best bar around

Pros: very consistent, great feel

Cons: Water weighted bar system is subpar

This bar, as long as it is bolted into the ground or on podium, is the best bar I have swung on in the world. I prefer tight bars and this bar gives me that quick response I like. The only drawback to this bar is with its free standing system. The water weights are not very secure and the bar tends to be very slow, even when it is tightened to the max.

Tightest, bounciest bar

Pros: Tight and bouncy

Cons: When it's water weighted it's very difficult to swing on

I love AAI High Bars - definitely my favorite bars to swing on. When they're cabled into the ground or a podium at an international competition, they can be tightened down really well so the bar is very quick. For someone my size (160 lbs.) I need it. The only exception with this bar is that when it's water weighted, the timing gets WAY slower and makes it hard to catch releases and dismount comfortably.
