Rogue Froning Barbells is rated
Rated 2 out of
I bought the 28.5 bar and out of the box one of the sleeves didn't spin as well as the other side. it would catch and be difficult to spin. I had to order the 3:1 lubricant they recommended so hopefully that works. you would think that spending $300 on a bar it would have come in perfect working order.

Excellent Look and feel.
After using the normal 28MM Oly bar a few times i was hooked. I was dead set on purchasing one until i found this.. love the black
the knurling on this bar is perfection. Seems that the tighter you grip the more bite it has. Well played Rogue... #allBlackEverything

Solid bar, poor zinc coating
I got my Froning Olympic wl bar 7 weeks ago. It's the first bearing bar I've owned and I love the whip and it's super smooth. Very happy with the overall design. However, the black zinc coating on my bar is not very good. There are spots on the bar (that look like drips) that are brown instead of black. Also, the collars are already worn through the black from weights sliding on and off and dropping the bar. My buddy has had the Matt Chan bar for nearly a year and the black zinc is much stronger. It's seen way more abuse than mine and still looks nearly new.
All that to say, the bar is great but I'd buy the rogue oly wl bar if I was to buy a bar again.

Perfect performance. Dead sexy.
Got the Froning Olympic bearing bar and have been using it for 4 weeks now. It's deadly sexy for an Olympic bar in all black. Great whip, best knurl I've felt, and the bearing spin is just right (I don't like my bearing bars to spin too much. For instance without weight it'll spin maybe 5-6 times, but with plates on it seems to spin forever with a good push. Shouldn't need to spin without plates). Even though it is zinc, I've been oiling it weekly to keep it in top shape. Some serious Fromance going on here!
