Rogue Operator Bar 2.0

After the gods created swords, 50-caliber machine guns and Harley-Davidsons, they dreamed up the Rogue Operator Bar 2.0. With an original look you won’t find anywhere else in the industry, this versatile 28.5mm barbell is zinc-plated with black sleeves and a military-inspired Olive Drab green shaft. It’s more of a bold statement than an aesthetic choice.

Like our flagship Ohio Bar, the Rogue Operator Bar 2.0 is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, using quality snap-ring construction, bronze bushings, and 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel for the perfect balance of whip and rigidity. The bar features Rogue’s signature Olympic knurl pattern with dual knurl marks for Power and Oly lifts. Its unique Olive Drab zinc plating helps protect the bar from scuffs and wear while providing a chalky, grip-friendly feel similar to the black zinc. DISCLAIMER: Some minor blemishes in the protective coating may occur, as the process is setup for military plating.

Greener, meaner, and made in America, the Rogue Operator Bar 2.0 is Guaranteed for Life against bending and/or broken collars* and is sure to leave an impression on any athlete who uses it—or even sees it. Some may ask why your gym would need an Olive Drab bar. You can answer simply, “Because I want it.”


  • Made in the USA
  • Diameter: 28.5mm
  • 190 KSI tensile strength steel
  • Dual knurl marks & no center knurl
  • Finishes: Olive Drab Zinc shaft / Black Zinc sleeves

*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.

Rogue Operator Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8837 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another quality Rogue product This is the first Rogue barbell I have used/bought. However, I have used a ton of random barbells in different settings and this is the best. It feels solid in your hands with a knurl that is just right. Also in my opinion the spin is just enough. Great in lifts such as cleans but not too aggressive for more strict movements such as bench. The military theme will not disappoint either. Some others have commented about botched finishes but my arrived flawless. Pumped to continue going to war with this bar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bar for the Marine When I first saw the OD Green 2.0 bar on Rogue, I knew I needed to have it. I am a Marine Corps veteran and combat veteran as well. This is by far my favorite of all the bars that I own. Everything from the cosmetic of the bar to the features are second to none. The grenade on the end caps are motivating. Most of my bumper plates are HG 1.0 with the grenades. If you are looking for a bar whether you are in the military, veteran or civilian, you can't go wrong with this bar. One happy Marine here. Thank you Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar I got this bar about a month back and its the best bar i have ever used. Much better than the ohio bar or any other bars I have used. Everything about it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I lift before it I got this bar on the Black Friday 5 for 5 shipping, first for practically free shipping Rogue got it here super fast, and second it's an amazing bar, the knurling Is perfect, just enough for max grip with out being over done and destroying your hand, and on top of all that the bar looks bad a.. which that alone will get you a extra 10lbs on any lift
Date published: 2014-12-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bar Good knurling for high-rep sets while also enough grip for that max deadlift you've been inching towards. My only dilemma now is whether I want a Deadlift bar or a power bar next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love'n it! Was looking to buy a new bar for the home gym at the same time I was looking for another gym in general. Stumbled onto a place and low and behold the "green" bar was there! I tried to play it cool but told the sales rep to sign me up. Until they get an OL bar in there, this is the only one I'm using. And its OD green! HooRa!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bar Love this Bar. Spin is perfect, a little bit more play in the Bushings than i think is needed for a new Bar. Does make a lot of Noise when dropped. A Good fix is to pull the end caps off and put some Foam behind the cap. Cut the Noise Down way more than expected.. Great Bar Every one who sees it, or uses it loves it..

Rogue Operator Bar 2.0 is rated 4.8837 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very solid, worth the money This is my first personal bar. I had been using a Pendlay at the gym prior to this and the two and failry different. I liked the Pen for oly lifts because it had more whip and spun a little faster. The Op bar is better for all around training though since I use it for every single lift. The knurl is the best I've felt. Like others have said, it holds chalk without shredding your palms. It spins smoothly but not as quickly as the Pendlay. Not sure if all these bars are loud, but mine makes a lot of noise when dropped. The bar clanks against the sleeves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Equipment Ordered the Operator Bar with 120lbs of Rogue HG plates. Shipped to Canada in a few days with no customs hassles. Best quality materials I have ever seen, and the bar is perfect for starting out to build up a routine. Right now I am using the bar alone for squats, curls and presses, and it is heavy enough to use as a sit-up support. The military look is simply cool, and the whole package was of such high quality that I will order from them again in the Fall when my benefits package at work will cover for either a bench or rack. No regrets…period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ops Bar This is by far the best barbell i have used for Crossfit. I currently own 3 Rogue barbells(Matt Chan, Bruiser, and Ops Bar) and i find myself always picking this one up before a workout. Its been almost 2 years now since i bought it and it still feels/spins like the first day i bought it. Do yourself a favor and pick up this bar, you will not regret it for one second.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tactical Like others have mentioned, the OD green is much darker than it appears on the screen. However, this bar will be a favorite for any military personnel because we all love to show our colors. My bar had minor blemishes as this is something to be expected, but nothing huge! The knurling is great, and I love the lack of center knurling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Treat every bar as if it were loaded This is my bar. There aren’t many like it, and this one is mine. 
My bar is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My bar, without me, is useless. Without my bar, I am useless. I must snatch my bar true. I must squat deeper than my enemy who is trying to defeat me. I must finish this WOD before he does. I will… My bar and myself know that what counts in this war are not the reps we complete, the noise of our thrust, or the dust we kick up. We know that it is the PR’s we hit that count. We will hit PR’s... My bar is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its knurls, its strength, its marks, its zinc coating, its sleeves and its bushings. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my bar clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will... Before God, I swear this creed. My operator bar and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is mine and there are no PR’s left to break!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone LOVES this bar This was my first bar purchase. I have other people at my gym with the Ohio and Chan bar so I wanted to try something different. The OD green caught my eye and it seems like everyone else at my gym. They all come to me telling me they've used it and have loved it. Everything from the look to the feel in your hands (this includes some women and men who have other bars from rogue). You can't go wrong with this even as a first bar and they service and shipping was just as good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word... Awesome This was my first barbell purchase, I'm glad I went with the operator bar. I love this Bar. Great knurling, great spin, holds chalk very well, and of course its one great looking bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OD is for ME Received the bar in the mail and was highly impressed with the finish. No blemishes-just perfect and unique. Anyone in the military would be drawn to this OD green color, just as I was. Definitely worth the wait and price !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Bar is of great quality, but mine does not have that same olive drab color in the picture, looks more like the ohio bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bar This bar is great. It has taken abuse from crossfit and OLY workouts and it hasn't even been phased. Light weight/heavy weight, high rep/low rep this bar takes it all and looks great while it does it. I have no complaints and I am sure you wont either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I've had the Operator for about 6 months for my garage set up. The bar has great spin and flex. Plus, it looks great. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these bars! I use the Rogue Bar in my local box daily and can testify to their durability and quality. We have a couple of non-Rogue bars and I, like others, avoid them like the plague. I ordered a Rogue bar for my home gym and because I like it so much I ordered an Operator Bar. These bars seem to be structurally the same but without a doubt the Operator bar is my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Motivating bar Why do I need a olive drab bar? Because I wanted one. High quality bar that takes abuse. Motivates me to push myself. Love the bar. Will definitely be looking for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Price might be a little steep but once you pull the trigger you won't regret your purchase. Slight imperfections were expected based on other reviews, but the quality of the bar will make you forget about them. Paint a little darker than online images. Rogue's special design will prevent the sleeves from coming off. One of a kind bar that will make you never want to use others ever again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great* Great bar... only negative is the one that Rogue has already stated - that there will be some imperfections in the coating. My imperfection took the shape of what looks to be a hand-print on the left side. Good all-purpose bar that I would highly recommend as long as you are okay with some imperfections to the finish.
Date published: 2013-01-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding This is the best bar I have ever used period. Whether your using it for Oly lifts or Dead lifting it parallels no other. I recommend this bar to all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great feel and spin The word of mouth about Rogue bars and their knurl feel is true. Best feel of a bar I've ever wrapped my hand around. Enough to give you traction and not tear your hands up. Bar spins great no matter what weight you have on it, almost faster with more weight. Best part about it, it's OD green and black. Thanks Rogue. Just wish I had waited a couple more weeks, would've saved some $

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but not pristine. After reading the reviews here, I knew this bar was going to be great, and it is! But I should point out that the Olive Drab coating on the the shaft/bar isn't quite as noticable (green) as pictured. Mine was also somewhat blotchy. But that's fine. Also, I'm not sure if it's from shipping or warehousing, but the Black Zinc sleeve coating had a few dings/scrapes/scratches in it -- so the silver/metal was showing in a few spots. Not a huge deal, since I'm sure it will get like that over time anyways. But just wanted to point out that you shouldn't expect a pristine bar upon arrival. Also, this bar has a little bit more aggressive knurling that what I'm used to. Definitely not the most aggressive that I've used, but just a bit more than I was used to. Lastly, the bar does come very well lubed/greased (there was even some oozing out). Get this bar. You'll be satisfied, so long as you consider the above info.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SICK BAR!!!! Ordered the bar sunday night and got it Wednesday afternoon. Crazy fast shipping, and the bar is amazing. The packaging was damaged and re-taped so the mailman asked that I inspect it before he left. The bar showed no signes of damage just some scuffs at the ends. Feels amazing and looks sick. It is a lot darker then the pic. More of a dark army green ad black sleeves. Very happy with the product; was on the fence paying the extra $30 for the Operator but I don't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it! my first bar was the rogue bar and I love it! but i needed a second bar and was on the fence about the operator. I pulled the trigger and man I love it! this bar gets abused, basically the same as the rogue bar but the feel is much better must be the green coating! this bar is sick!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool Factor Same great quality as any other Rogue bar that I've used, but the addition of a super cool paint job. Great feel, great look. If you are thinking about getting this bar, then you've already made your decision. Get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Addition Had the original bend on a heavy lift and Rogue took it back and shipped me a new one for free at no expense for the return. The olive patina is OD and just looks cool.
Date published: 2012-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar The Operator Bar feels just like the regular Rogue Bars that a couple friends have which is great, but the color is obviously unique. However, the OD green finish seems a bit splotchy in places on my bar; I suppose it adds a little character.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar Knurling is sharp and small, but not very deep. Gives you a good grip without sacrificing your hands to the iron gods like with a good deadlift bar. No center knurl is of course nice for doing cleans. The finish is gorgeous as well, so that's a nice perk.
