I’ve been with Samtek from the beginning, researching with Mr Weng in China to create the ultimate in Powerlifting technology. At their test facility in Shanghai, I witnessed the 400kg drop test on the impregnable Samtek rack and I weighed multiple Powerlifting and Weightlifting discs, all spot on. The Samtek stainless steel bar was deliberately created with an extra sharp diamond knurl for undroppable Deadlifts and also just that smidgen of extra whip for rebound out of the Squat. Disc coating has been engineered with the procelain based Cerakote so plates will look crisp and new long term. All those are the reasons Powerlifting Australia and World Powerlifting moved to Samtek for the long-term. I urge all ambitious lifters and Clubs move to a position of strength via Samtek.
Robert Wilks - Powerlifting Australia , CEO
I first saw Samtek at last years Nationals and nearly every class had a Deadlift record as no grips gave way. Then my club at Melbourne Uni bought one and it became a bun fight, no-one would use the old bars, so we purchased another ten Samtek bars. The deeper knurl improves grip in the hands and on the shoulders and the extra bit of flex adds to the Squat, once you learn to time it. I reckon the Samtek bar gave me 7 to 8kg on my 400kg Squat at the Calgary Worlds. The Samtek racks are fine, as solid or more than any and the plusher bench gives a sense of push as you drive up and out in the BP. I recommend Samtek to anyone who wants to step up a grade in their equipment and lifting
Tony Reinmuth - Powerlifting Australia #1 Ranked Male (2019)
I got to use Samtek for the first time at the Invitational Pacific Championships in Sydney April 2019.
The first world that came to mind for me was "polished". As a lifter, the biggest difference
I noticed with the Samtek equipment competing, was the bar. Compared to others I have used in the past,
the knurling on the Samtek bar is perfect - it is rigid and there is no chance of my hands slipping
I then began weightlifting and tried out the WL set which I purchased and have fallen in love with. After 6 months, I've noticed no deformity or chip in them, they make minimal noise when dropped on the floor and aren't overly bouncy which I love. The 15kg womens bar is also polished - the knurling and finish to comp spec. I have been nothing but grateful to have my Samtek equipment at home and wouldn't purchase anything else. It is also probably worthwhile mentioning how competitive the pricing is! I compete with comp-spec equipment, so I need to be training with the best stuff on the market - Samtek is that!
