Product Description

Rogue 29mm Stump Bar

The Rogue Stump Bar is a rackable, short-sleeve version of our stainless steel Ohio Power Bar, built with the same 29mm diameter, little-to-no flex shaft (200,000 PSI), bronze bushings, and aggressive knurl pattern (in single powerlifting knurl marks + center knurl). Though the shorter sleeve length (7.3125” vs 16.25”) reduces its potential weight loads, the 30 LB Stump Bar is ideal for home gym owners who train in tight quarters and/or don’t need full-length sleeves for their powerlifting movements. With thinner plates such as our USA Olympic Plates or Calibrated Steel Plates the Stump can still be loaded to over 500LBs.

Each bar is manufactured in the USA and rated as an F16-R in our F-Scale durability testing. The stainless steel delivers both superior oxidation resistance and an accurate feel of the intended knurl, as no additional coating affects the original precision-machined pattern. For the sleeves, we used a new proprietary, matte-black finishing process that transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the sleeves’ long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance. 

Please Note: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Steel on steel can cause rusting over time. See more tips here: Bar Care & Maintenance.

Key Features of the 29MM Stump Bar

A Short But Rackable Power Bar
1

A Short But Rackable Power Bar

The Stump Bar is a space-saver and a game-changer for gym owners who want the feel, function, and rackability of a standard power bar, but don’t need the maximum loadable sleeve length. At a total length of 68.3125”, this bar is roughly 18” inches shorter than the Ohio Power Bar, and weighs 15 LBS less unloaded (30 LB vs 45LB). However, with a standard 29mm diameter shaft, powerlifting knurl marks, and rack-compatible sleeve spacing, the Stump Bar allows athletes to train exactly as they would with a full-length bar. Ample space is saved, and only the plate load potential is reduced.

200,000 PSI Tensile Strength
2

200,000 PSI Tensile Strength

The 29mm diameter steel shaft has a tensile strength of 200,000 PSI, same as our full-length Ohio Power Bar. This means it has superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the Stump Bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel. Its rating of F16-R in our F-Scale durability testing is twice that of the full-length Ohio Power Bar, as the shorter sleeves reduce the effect of each impact on the bar.

Aggressive Knurl
3

Aggressive Knurl

The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

Finishing Touches
4

Finishing Touches

Each Stump Bar features a stainless steel shaft and a proprietary matte black sleeve finish. Stainless steel knows no rivals when it comes to oxidation resistance, and it’s also excellent for maintaining the original intended feel of the knurl. Our new sleeve finishing process is also uniquely effective, transforming the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance of the matte black finish.

F SCALE™

The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

OXIDATION RATE

The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

*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.

Great for small home gym but…
I really love this bar but the only grip I have is the sleeve length is too short. I wish they were slightly longer, 10 inches would be more ideal. Especially for a power bar. The rogue curling has longer sleeves than this bar, makes no sense! Also the black sleeves wears off over time. Wish rogue would offer the same bar with 10 inche stainless steel sleeves.

Superb
If I could rate this more stars, I would. I'd be hard pressed to find a better bar that Rogue makes, that serve my specific needs as well as the Stump. I have limited space and this bar makes it incredibly easy to maneuver. I wasn't sure if I'd like a 30 lb bar, but turns out, it's now my go to. The stainless steel shaft is looks beautiful, and the aggressive knurling gives the perfect feel on my calloused hands. If you have limited space and need a quality bar, this one might be it. Rogue, I love this bar so much, I feel like it has become a part of me!

Awesome
I bought this and the USA olympic plates for my rack in a tighter place. Just awesome -- this is basically a stainless version of the Ohio Power Bar (the best power bar out there).

Flawless short-sleeved bar!
Beautiful stainless-steel bar ideal for small-footprinted gym setups. This bar performs well for all the usual suspect movements, but I particularly appreciate using it with the AbMat Pivot Pad for hip thrust movements. This Rogue Stump Bar is easy to wield within my gym's conservative square footage and low ceiling clearance, and the shortened weight sleeves encumber less area on the sides of my rack which means less to dodge around when loading/unloading the bar and/or setting up for other movements.

Great barbell for small spaces
I love this bar. Prbly use it more then my Ohio power bar due to the shorter sleeves. Easier to load the plates. Knurled just like the power bar. And since this is 30lbs bar you’ll have to adjust to math then what ur used to with the 45lb bar. The only down side after couple months of use the black sleeves starts to fade away. Which is to be expected, but this is just cosmetic. Rogue can u please offer the stump bar with stainless steel sleeves. That would be EPIC!!! Other than that best investment!!! Highly recommened!!!

Stumpy Strong!
Perfect bar for small spaces - but big enough to still accommodate heavy presses. Knurling was surprising aggressive (i was expecting something passive like the Ohio bar), so another big plus for that! Another 5 star bar from Rogue ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
