The military-inspired Rogue Operator Bar is now available here in two additional Cerakote finishes: Tek Gray Camo and Tiger Stripe Woodland (you can check out the standard Olive Drab and Desert Tan finishes here). Cerakote is an advanced, polymer-ceramic composite finish that's been widely utilized by firearms manufacturers for its unique durability in thin applications.
Both of these exclusive new variations on the Op Bar 3.0 are fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, using quality composite bushings and 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel for the perfect balance of whip and rigidity. Rogue’s signature knurl pattern is firm but non-abrasive, with dual knurl marks for both Power and Oly lifts (no center knurl). The cerakote coating not only offers a one-of-a-kind camo look along the shaft, but also boasts one of the best oxidation rates in the industry.

Please Note: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required. See our Ohio Bar Care Page for more info.
The Camouflage version of the Operator Bar utilizes the same ceramic-based coating, Cerakote, as our standard Rogue Operator Bar 3.0 but in two new exclusive designs: Tek Gray Camo and Tiger Stripe Woodland Camo. Cerakote is used widely in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications, and it delivers superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc. The Tek Grey option includes black sleeves and the Rogue logo across the shaft in black, while the Tiger Stripe option features black sleeves and the Rogue logo in silver.
This steel is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell.
Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining which allows the bar to have a very smooth finish.
Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We also assemble the Operator Bar with special composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace equipment and military vehicles. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to provide a reliable spin. The final result is a bar that produces normal “whip” during Oly weightlifting with enough rigidity to hold for heavy powerlifting.
