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.

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.

3

Black Zinc Finish

The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, the Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, and the new 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.

Lifetime 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.

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.

I understand the draw to cerakote coating…
If I could do it again, I would have one with stainless or black zinc. Unfortunately the Cerakote dulls the knurl quite a bit. I have a raw OPB that I love, but the maintenance is almost too much. Posted are the knurl comparison to my raw OPB and Cerakote. Still a good bar, but the knurl leaves quite a bit to be desired.

Good bar but sleeves too thick
Not sure if the bar is supposed to be a little thicker on the sleeves but compared to my Ohio Bar all my bumper plates scrape and have to be maneuvered to be put on instead of just sliding on easily compared to Ohio Bar. Other than that good bar.

Sleeves a little thicker than Ohio bar so bumper plate scrapes when putting on

Thank you for posting! Our Proprietary Matte Black metal treatment process also hardens the steel, which can cause some additional friction with plates that have a chamfer. These sleeves should be able to be wiped down with no issue. Our team is reaching out now to confirm.

Ohio Power Bar
It came down to a decision. Was looking at the Texas equipment, but I’ve used multiple rogue bars. Was looking for a great all around power bar for general training, and for the price/quality Rogue is head and shoulders above everyone on a power bar. I love it. Wouldn’t trade it.

Solid bar but too many metal shavings
I just received the stainless steel bar with stainless sleeves, and while the product is rock solid, I'm really disappointed to find lots and lots of tiny metal shavings throughout the knurled sections. I've tried wiping and cleaning and vacuuming the bar, but no luck. Every time I use it I have tiny metal shavings from (I'm guessing) the machining that produces the knurl. Why did I pay over $500(!) (incl. tax and shipping) for a bar that leaves metal on my hands and makes me wonder how many places in my gym I've spread those small pieces? Every bar should be cleaned and inspected thoroughly before shipping. Don't rush quality - I'd rather wait another day or two.

A nice barbell
I’ve never purchased a barbell before but the quality surpasses anything I’ve ever picked up in a commercial gym. The knurling is top notch and quite aggressive which I prefer. The bar has been dropped dragged and beaten and still performs. Quality

Nice bar but has one annoying defect.
Overall I like it but the grooves on the sleeves are not the same on each side. On one side the plates go on and come off easily and on the other it's always a struggle, the grooves are constantly catching the weight on the inside (yes they are rogue weights), which makes it annoying to change the weights out. It also leaves metal dust and shavings all over when I change the weights on that side with oversized grooves, which wouldn't be a big deal if this wasn't an indoor gym in my living room. I don't know if the quality justifies the price for this one.
