Rogue Beater Bar

An Affordable but Durable Bar for Group Training

As the name suggests, the Rogue Beater Bar is a budget-priced barbell made to handle regular high-rep abuse from multiple weightlifters of any skill level. With a 31mm diameter, the Beater is thicker than most Rogue 20kg weight bars, but is still a highly dependable American-made bar backed by a One Year Guarantee Against Breaking and/or Collar Separation.

The Beater Bar features Olympic knurling marks, no center knurl, and a black zinc coated shaft. The sleeves are bright zinc coated and assembled with a pin design.

*Warrantied by manufacturer. Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar!!!!! I have used this bar for over year and a half. I do at least 3-4 WODs a week. I still have yet to feel or hear anything loosening up anywhere inside the bar. Great product and I will be buying a new one for my friend that has been doing crossfit for about 6 months.... and yea he loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from American made makes a difference Ordered on Monday and received on Wednesday! Fantastic service and communications from order placement to delivery. I'm 58 and finally figured out that I need QUALITY gear to keep stress low on my joints. Using the bar for DL's, squats, flat bench and tri's. Bar is excellent with knurling that literally "sticks" to your hand without cutting. Will give an update in 6 mos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar for home gym Have had this bar for about a month and it is perfect for my home gym set up. I wasn't looking to spend a ton of money but wanted a quality bar. I have no doubt that this bar will hold up for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I have used this bar outside, inside, and dropped it countless times, with weights on and the bar holds up! Can't ask for a better bar for the price. It is thicker than most bars. Love the bar! Thank you Rogue!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just buy the dang bar It's a bar. It holds weights. It works. If you want a better bar, buy that one. It's been in my garage for a year now, regular Crossfit use. Yes, it's thicker. Not a big deal. And when you pick up a regular bar, it's a treat. Just buy the bar and get to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bought the Beater Bar this past month, primarily for squats. Since I don't plan to lift over 500 lbs, I didn't really need a higher end Rogue bar, like the Ohio (although I think this bar would take it all in stride). This is a great bar. In fact after shopping all over the interwebs, I think it's safe to say the best bar out there for the money. I could not be happier. Don't hesitate if you are looking for a great bar at a great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bar I just bought the beater to refresh my home gym with simple bar. It came fast, but the package was all teared up, and bar was coming out of it. I had to clean the bar and found some minor scratches on it. I contacted ROGUE customer service, sent some pictures and video as well. They reassure me that bar is still in good shape. I gave it a try this morning. It is a very good basic bar. Grip is different and it is a slight challenge. I found it very comfy for push movements such as bench and OHP, though. I am pleased with the bar overall. The shipment condition was major disappointment and that's why I rate it 4/5. But the ROGUE customer service were very reasonable and prompt. No complaints here. Thank you ROGUE. Ark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Economical Bar! I have had this bar for about 5 months. I primarily use it for powerlifting/olympic lifting in my garage gym. Its a great bar, escpecially at the price. Well made, durable. I may upgrade to the Rogue Bar down the road, but for now this is a great bar that I can see getting many quality years of use. Would highly recommend this bar for someone that is looking to outfit their own garage gym and wants to get a quality workhorse bar for a great price.

Rogue Beater Bar is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding bar! Only recently purchased this bar and it's quickly become my favorite straight bar. Knurling is perfect, deep enough to allow for a tight grip but not so deep that it grates the skin off your palms. Sleeves are perfectly calibrated for bumper plates so you don't have to fight to get them on and off the bar. Great piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar for the price! Bought this bar for my gym and has held up great! I personal train strongman along with some beefy boys at the gym and have put the bar through the test...we have had it up to 700 pounds dead lifting and around that squatting too....I highly recommend this bar for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Reliable Been using this bar for two years - in S. Florida and Columbus - outdoors (Florida humidity, Ohio winters). It's a champ, no frills bar that, as its name suggests, takes a beating. I prefer Olympic and no center knurl, and at some point, would also add a similar bar of smaller diameter. Great all purpose bar. Absolutely can't go wrong with Rogue quality. I'm a walking advertisement for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Value, Perfect for POWER Lifting We purchased 5 of these for our gym and they are work-horses of many work outs. With its comfortable 31mm diameter this has become the Bar of Choice among many of our members for Power Lifts. A good Oly Bar this bar really shines on Power Lifts. Best praise I can give is to say that we will be purchasing 5 more when we move to our next/larger location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar and great service I received my bar earlier than the expected delivery date, needless to say it made my day when it showed up unexpectedly early. Just in time to knock out double grace! Beautiful bar. I wasn't sure that I'd be able to tell the difference between a 28.5 mm bar and a 31 mm bar, but it is definitely noticeable. It's not a negative though. Thank Rogue for your awesome service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple If you're just starting out, this bar is perfect. The price/quality ratio is phenominal. Coming from a background in working with steel, I can tell it's quality. I bought this bar with Rogue's KG Echo bumpers and I'm a very happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat this bar for the price I wasn't expecting much when I bought this bar because of the price, but when it came I was really impressed with it. I'm not a competitive lifter and I have no doubt I can get plenty strong with this bar, I doubt I'll need to upgrade anytime soon. The bar is thicker but I can still hook it and use it for deadlifts without an issue, people with smaller hands may have some trouble gripping this bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good bar for the price Our CrossFit gym bought five of these bars several years ago. They are all still in service. We've bent a few bars, dropping them loaded on racks and safeties. But somehow these are still going. They are definitely not as smooth-spinning as the Ohio Bars and they rattle when spun! People do "fight" over the Ohio bars for Olympic lifting! Some people prefer these fat bars for squats. However, I will still keep the Beaters around for squats and deadlifts even after I save up for several of the new Rogue Oly bars. (Can't wait, BTW.) In general I find Rogue equipment to be very durable and tough enough to stand up to the abuse CrossFitters dish out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar for me so far I've had my beater bar for almost a year and had absolutely no problem with it, it's exceeded my expectations especially for the price of the bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar I have of these bars in my gym. This is a great beginners bars. The only down fall is all the rattling when the bar drops but besides that you definitely get a quality bar for and great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar even better price Really amazing bar for the money. I was using bars from the box stores that would maul my hands on heavy lifts. The knurling on the bar is perfect and easy to grip. The extra thickness is not a big deal and actually fits my hands well. If you are on a budget and want a high quality bar you can't go wrong with this one. I will only buy my bars from Rogue from now on. Thanks for a great product Rogue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bar but if you plan on getting serious spend a little more money There is no doubt that rogue products are great. If your are a novice crossfitter/oly lifter this is a great bar for the price. There is a problem when you begin to get more serious about oly lifting. The size 31mm is too large. This size makes everything a little more difficult. Clean and jerk, snatch, P. Clean are more difficult with the larger size bar and can get frustrating. This bar won't be for finding PR's but will hold up to the beating. If you are serious or plan on getting serious about weight lifting spend a little more money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bar! Love this bar , as others have stated before its a little bit thicker. If you're like me and have been using the regular bars for years, then a great challenge, feels funny at first but once you start banging away its a non factor. Bottom line it's money well spent in my book. Few bless but no big deal, I sort of like that it adds to the garage gym feel. Shipping is A+... Thanks Rogue and Courtney for your quick response to my question on the P-4 pull up system I purchased as well. You have my business from here on out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar! Just got my beater bar , and immediately, threw it in the mix. The bar is a little bit thicker diameter then the other bars i have which are not high quality bars at all, the knurl is badass! With some chalk i had no loss of grip doing high rep snatches, Having cheap bars that the sleeve hold screw loosens with high reps,I was a bit worried that that the sleeves were attached with a pin set up, having a bar that the end bolt keeps unthreading.But I was pleased to see that this bar wasn't attached that way, it seems that the main bar runs all the way to the end thru the sleeve and the pins attach on the sides of the sleeves almost unnoticed. The spin is decent, not fluid like a high end bar, but still better then most, I think with some extra lubrication it might up the spin. I am very impressed with the functionality of the bar, just from the initial look it looks like it will hold up to high rep action. I think the name says it all, and I plan to give it a beating in the near future. Working on a budget, this is the way to go, I hope to be able to get the rogue bar also to add to the gym. but if the beater holds up I may just invest in another one of these for the garage gym.Thumbs up!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price, good bar. This is definitely what the name implies. Rogue "Beater" bar. You can drop it, throw it, slam it, burn it, whatever, and it will hold up. I would like to note for everyone though that this bar is not a 28.5mm bar. Just so everyone knows. So, it is a bit thicker but after a bit you just get used to it. Great bar!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short Life I guess there is a reason there is only a 1 year guarantee on this bar. Used in a garage gym, this bar lasted 24 months before bending. It was used by 2 people for typical crossfit workouts, rogue high temps and horse stall mats. Loaded under 200 lbs most of the time, max load of 315. Looking back, I would have bought a Rogue bar for the extra $100. I cant point to any single event that could have caused the bar to bend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective At this price point, the beater bar delivers. Simple and effective, sprinkle in some Rogue signature character and you have a great bar to add to your arsenal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for a gym I've got two facility and outfitted both with pretty much all Rogue equipment. This bar was my bar of choice because of the great price. It was a mistake to try to save money on these. I would say that 95% of the time these bars have under 225 loaded on them. My gym isn't a crossfit box with tons of athletes repping out heavy loads. About a year and a half after buying them I have had to throw out 5 of them because they are bent so bad. I couldn't believe it and checked if there was a warranty ... 1 year. Of course. I still think Rogue is a good company run by good people and I will continue to use them as a primary option for my facilities, but these bars are a dud. User beware.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect introduction to Rogue equipment This is the first bar I purchased from Rogue. I was instantly impressed with the quality. It is thicker than the normal bars which I think is great for added training on grip strength. The only reason I rated this bar with 4 stars is because I have since purchased two more bars from rogue that are even better in quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I LOVE THIS BAR!!! Only 165 bucks. Can't go wrong.
Date published: 2012-11-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you can afford it I would get a more expensive one but it is not bad It was decent for a bar only costing $165 but it is not good if you have wrist problems because it does not flex well. It also has too thick a shaft. the bottom line is, If you are want to spend money on weights, spend it on the bar
Date published: 2012-11-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I took a long time to look for a new bar and decided to buy the Beater Bar. Great choice for my budget, the only downfall is the diameter of the bar, it was totally different from the 28mm ones. I work out daily heavy and dropping this sucker from top position and it does hold up nice. It is loud as someone mentioned. Bearings are very smooth, collars are a little ribbed to reduce plate slipping, and the grip is just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar This is a great bar. We have been using it for almost a year and it takes a beating. It gets slammed around everyday. It is the best bar for the price hands down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! This bar is awesome!!! Great quality. Don't be fooled by the price. In this case, more $$$ is NOT better when it comes to a good bar for everyday use. Already slammed this bar during Thruster workouts and it takes the abuse! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING bar! I ordered this bar a few weeks before Christmas, and received it within a few days. I have been completely satisfied with Rogue's customer service, order processing, shipping, etc. They have been super helpful every step of the way! I was in love with this bar from the moment I removed it from the packaging. From the quality of the one-piece sleeve construction to the perfect depth and sharpness of the knurling and the wonderful black oxidized finish, everything about this bar is great. For $165 bucks, you can't do better. I'd pay 2x as much for this bar if I had to!
