Ohio Deadlift Bar

The Rogue Ohio Deadlift Bar is one of our finest, precision-engineered power bars to date, generating a higher amount of flex ideal for deadlifting. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the ODB features a 190 PSI shaft with a comparatively thin diameter (27mm) and longer overall length (90.5” – just within most powerlifting federation standards). This combination creates a bar that’s both easier to grip and designed for increased whip/flex when pulling. For many power lifters, that greater flex means being able to pull from a higher point before the plates break off the floor, potentially increasing the amount of weight that can be lifted in the process.

Like all Rogue bushing bars, the Ohio Deadlift Bar includes sleeves with a quality snap ring construction-- far superior to the cheaply produced bolt-and-pin style sleeves of some other brands. The powerlifting knurl marks on this bar are a bit deeper / more aggressive than our Ohio Power Bar, but machined in the same pattern. There is no center knurl.

Customers can choose from two available finishes: Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc sleeves or full Bare Steel across the bar.

Specifications:

  • Made in Columbus, OH, USA
  • 190 PSI Tensile Strength Steel
  • Shaft Diameter: 27mm
  • Loadable Sleeve Length: 15.5”

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dead lift bar!!! My son absolutely loves this bar. He’s a power lifter and received it as one of his Christmas gifts early. He said it actually feels like it flexes with him during his workout. Highly recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knurl, Diameter, Length, Whip The combination of knurl and smaller bar diameter make this bar easy to grip. The longer length and smaller diameter makes for a good amount of whip. In total, the Ohio deadlift bar is fun to pull. It's a luxury. It's a pleasure. Don't think too much about it, just add it to your gym and enjoy leg day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gym Complete! Have had this bar for a few months now. I don't use it nearly as often as the bare Ohio Power Bar I purchased previously. But on Leg Day, having a bar for squats and having a bar for dead lifts is beautiful thing! Love the slightly smaller diameter vs. the OPB. Sometimes to clear my head, I just go down to the basement and just grip and twist hard on the ODB for a like 30 seconds, and I feel immediately better. I know these two bars will last me a lifetime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent bar with a good whip and knurling I have been looking for a deadlift bar since like forever and have been looking at the other well known brands. But I opted for the Ohio Deadlift Bar because it had the same specifications and at a more reasonable price. I tried it out and initially at lighter weights i didnt get the whip that was much touted. Only when it reached 300kg then the whip took place! It's pretty friendly to even beginners I would definitely recommend it... Heck i would buy it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ohio DL Bar may become the new standard I finally retired my old Texas DL bar which had a slight bend in it. I decided to give the Ohio bar a try this time and I have been very impressed. Good flex and whip. The knurling bites a little. I am very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I usually don't do write reviews but.... I bought this bar in the Rogue closeout tab which is known as the Boneyard bars. The bar I got literally came in A+ condition. The only con it has is just a TINY bit of rust that's about it. Rogue is very good with their boneyard bars as far as quality. Would definitely get stuff from the boneyard if you are on a budget.
