After the gods made swords, 50 Caliber Machine Guns and Harley-Davidsons they dreamed up the Rogue Operator Bar. This bar is American made and is zinc plated in Ohio.


  • Bar Diameter & Steel Type: 28.5MM/155,000 PSI Tensile Strength
  • Knurl: Olympic Knurl Pattern with Dual Knurl marks for Power/Olympic Lifting. This bar does not have center knurl.
  • Protective Coating: This bar is zinc plated - Black on the sleeves and Olive Drab on the bar shaft. The Olive Drab has a chalky feel that is similar to the Black Zinc. DISCLAIMER: Some minor blemishes in the protective coating may occur, the process is setup for military plating.
  • Warranty - This bar is Guaranteed for Life by the manufacturer against bending and/or the collars coming off.

Look far and wide but you will not find a bar like this! Many will ask why someone would need an Olive Drab bar, you can answer simply - "Because I want it!"

**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.

Very solid, worth the money

Review by Dane

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.

Essential Equipment

Review by Chandler

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.

No blemishes and great spin.

Review by EMAG

Awesome bar. Looks great, feels great. Takes abuse and has a great grip with the OD finish. Would recommend to anyone.

Ops Bar

Review by Pete

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.

Review by Jamie

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.

Great bar!!

Review by Zach

Had mine for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it. I've already pr'd three of my lifts, I think that's a sign...
The diameter and the knurling are awesome, and it's great for Olympic Lifting. And it looks plain badass.

Treat every bar as if it were loaded

Review by Ruffin

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!

Everyone LOVES this bar

Review by Fez

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.

I love this bar and you will too

Review by Scott P

Ever since my first workout with this bar, I've loved it. Just looking at it on non training days can be motivating. Buy it. Lift it. Love it.
