Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29MM Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft, single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling. The bar’s knurl pattern is deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive, and the 29MM shaft diameter and high tensile strength result in little to no flex or whip. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

Key Features of This Ohio Power Bar:

  • 1205,000 PSI Steel (200,000 PSI For Stainless)

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI (200,000 PSI for Stainless), delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel.

  • 2Aggressive 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.

  • 3Bare Steel Finish

    The Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, the Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, and the Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) strikes a balance between the two. Depending on the look and feel you prefer, there is a version of the Ohio Power Bar right in your wheelhouse.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from the Westside Bench and R-3 Power Rack to deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Lifetime Warranty

    The Ohio Power Bar’s quality construction is backed by Rogue’s Lifetime Warranty against bending. This is a barbell equipped for high intensity, everyday use.
    *Please Note: The warranty does not cover damage due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user, 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.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

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.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

*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 45LB Ohio Power Bar - Bare Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 393.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aggressive knurling Bars nice but aggressive. If you have sweaty palms, this will feel perfect. If your hands doesn’t sweat much, boy is it aggressive (I’ve used it during cold weather in garage). Center knurl is very aggressive as well - heavier the weight, more it digs in. I would grab this bar for heavy reps of 5-7, higher reps I tend to reach for my Chan or SS Ohio. However I usually lean towards my Chan bar when powerlifting so I ended up selling the OPB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the one. I know I'm just repeating what everyone else has already said about this bar but it deserves another 5-star review. I had no idea how awful my old barbell was until I purchased this one. I was a little worried the knurl would be too aggressive but, through the use of what I can only assume is dark voodoo sorcery, it is extremely comfortable yet provides a more stable grip than any others. If you are insistent on getting a black zinc or black e-coat finish I would highly recommend getting the 45lb power bar with center knurl as I feel the finish can be a little too slippery alone. Best bar in the business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bar I had wanted a stainless OPB but took a chance on the the e-coat version when it became available first, despite not much info or reviews to go off, and I am really glad I pulled the trigger. The knurl feels perfect... sticky without being overly sharp, and the finish looks fantastic. Would absolutely recommend over a zinc or oxide bar, and at this price it’s a great value compared to stainless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bare Steel - Beware! The bar is fantastic. Let’s get that out of the way first. As others have said, the knurling is perfect (very aggressive) with the center knurl helpful for squats. I just regret getting the bare steel version for my humid garage gym in Georgia. If anyone has suggestions for preventing rust, I would love to know because mine started rusting almost immediately even with wiping it down, brushing it, and applying some 3-in-1 oil. Again, great bar but probably not a good idea for humid conditions. My stainless steel power bar looks great (purchased at same time).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast shipping and transparency I just got in my bar today! I had previously been confronted with misleading shipping timeframes from other companies. It was an exciting moment to have the bar come in within a week of ordering. Also the grip is aggressive enough and the bar is solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Bar! I've had this bar for @ 3 weeks. Purchased it as quickly as it became available. I had been using a cheap bar from a big-box retailer for about a year. The difference between the OPB and the cheaper bar is like night and day. The knurling on the OPB is perfect for me. Don't delay - just buy one. You won't regret it. I may even buy another. What?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great American product for a great price I have had the bar for about 6 weeks, and am super happy with it. The knurling is aggressive, and I found out I liked that. If you are not used to aggressive knurling, you should try it out, its not like hanging on a pull up bar with knurling that gouges in your hand. Instead, it digs in gently, in a good way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank Rogue Awesome Power Bar - I use it for pretty much everything. I have smaller hands so for clean and jerk movements, I prefer the 25mm Bella Bar; otherwise can't get any better than this.
