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

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 Ohio Deadlift Bar is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 27.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Masterpiece This bar is a wonderful piece of equipment. Literally the first day I got it, I pulled an EASY 20lbs PR, and then went on to pull another +20lbs to my knees before losing it. I've spent a lot of time pulling on a Texas Deadlift Bar, and I have to say this bar is a far better option in my opinion. The flex is unreal. The knurling, while still plenty aggressive, is not hand-shredding rough like the TDB. And on top of that, the price is a steal. Barely over $300 for a raw steel version shipped, versus $420 for the TDB and that's not even counting shipping. Rogue continues to amaze me with their incredibly high quality equipment. If you are on the fence about this bar, I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. Don't waste your money on a more expensive bar that is (in my opinion) lower quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I thought it would be On my heavier lifts I have defaulted to an alternated grip (I have weak grip strength). I read here on some of the reviews that the knurling was "aggressive." I was hoping that the knurling on this bar would allow me to use a pronated grip since its just more comfortable for me. As I thought, it has. I'm able to hold the grip on heavier sets except for the last one. I'll have to work on my grip to get me over. I am very happy with this bar. Also, it just looks cool with some plates on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best deadlift bar I have used! I've had this bar in the gym for a few months now, and I love it. I find it better than the Texas DL bar, which has overly harsh knurling, which actually hinders grip by tearing through the skin of the hand. I'd highly recommend this bar to anyone looking for a specific DL tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Bar Bought this bar a week ago and did 10 x 10 dead lifts on it this week. The bar itself is very well made and looks great. The flex is noticeable and definitely feels much better compared to a Texas power bar with very little flex at all. Knurling is very grippy but not sharp which is nice, could still rip your hands but it's less likely. Hard to compare to a Texas DL bar, Rogue bar is probably better as its half the price. I think if Rogue wanted to improve the product at all they could continue the knurling another 25mm-40mm towards the center of the bar as it seems a bit wide. Also stopping the knurling before the sleeves as anyone pulling against bands will have the bands in direct contact with the knurling which isn't ideal. Overall this is a very nice product and a great option for the Australian market. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a good value, high quality deadlift bar. Shipping was also very fast, ordered Wednesday, delivered Friday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid bar. Insane knurl! I bought this to go alongside my Texas deadlift bar. Much less whip but I feel it makes for a stronger pull off the ground. The knurling is very aggressive, but if you're buying a deadlift bar you're probably looking for that. A lot sharper and deeper than the Texas bar which I really like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great one. I bought it a few weeks back. I just love it. 27 mm so it really fits for a better deadlift grip for me. The knurling is rough but serves its purpose. I love how it starts to bend first before launch when I lift a heavier one. Not bad for bench press or military press either. Although for back squat it is not the tool. For squat it is simply too "whippy" and unstable...and long so its balance is not for that ...but hey...it is a DEADLIFT BAR! :)
