Looking for a 1,000+ lb Olympic Bar

Hi there. I'm looking to purchase an Olympic bar for my home gym.
Weight rating needs to be a minimum of 1,000 lb; length is the standard 7' (84").

The bar I'm leaning towards is the CAP 1000 lb Barbell, model OB-86B (but I am open to other options.)
I've read a lot of good reviews on this bar, both from seller's websites as well as weightlifting forums.

Three sellers on my radar:
Walmart for $165 -- http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/6000188615841
Wayfair for $173 -- https://www.wayfair.ca/Solid-7-1000-lbs ... B1047.html
Amazon for $206 -- https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B001K4OPY2 (looks like the Amazon price just went up; used to be ~$170)

What I'm hoping to achieve with this request:
a) a smoking coupon code for one of the above retailers;
b) a lower-price from another seller; or
c) a comparable bar at a lower price.

All comments appreciated; thanks!

Thanks for the link; haven't heard of these guys before. This bar is a great price ($79), but it's 700 lb weight rating will be too low. This bar has the required 1000 lb rating, but it's price ($169) is no different than the others I'm already looking at. Either way, it's another seller to watch for a coupon code / sale. Thanks again!
