No hand shredding here
I have to disagree with the previous review... and I was quite worried about the finish because of that review, but decided to sub the dirty south shorty on the S-3 rack anyway. So glad I did! Fact is, shredded hands are a known side effect of kipping pullups. Just check out the xfit boards for all the ideas folks have on how to prevent and treat them. Yes, you should use chalk, but that's just a given when you're kipping in a metcon (or anytime, IMHO).
I've shredded my hands on bars before, but not on this one. The diameter creates the right amount of surface area for gripping without needlessly taxing your forearms, and with chalk you won't slip on this finish until you're too tired to maintain a grip or you do it purposely (say at the apex of the kip to complete the full movement, when your body weight is suspended and mostly off your hands). I'm good at kips, but I'm no elite athlete (and I sweat a lot). This pullup bar is by far the best I've ever laid hands on.

Great option for affiliate outfitting
This was a no-brainer addition to our USMC rig. It gives us the option for bar muscle ups as well as two fast pull-up height options, not to mention it stands out big time over the standard X-70 crossmember. More of these to come when we add on.
