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 190,000 PSI shaft with a comparatively thin diameter (27MM) and longer overall length (90.50" – 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 three available finishes. On this page, you can choose from Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc sleeves or full Bare Steel across the bar.

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 4.9 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality bar I’ve had this bar almost a month and use it once a week for deadlifts. The knurling is no joke! The only way this bar is coming out of my hands is if it is taking skin with it. I’ve been doing higher volume sets lately and I think this bar would be best suited for low rep sets if you don’t want to destroy your hands. The bend is awesome for a deadlift bar and is a really good feeling when the bar bends before the weights leave the floor, helping you get more weight! You just can’t go wrong with a quality bar over a junk bar from a popular retail store. I’ve had three junk bars and now this is my second Rogue bar and I plan on adding more rogue bars to my arsenal later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun! Feels absolutely amazing! Longing for deadlift day at the start every week now. Great whip! A bit challenging getting the new teknik right but just so much fun doing it! Also every gym has PL- and OL-bars but almost no one has a deadlift bar.. worth every penny! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for I wish I bought this bar years ago! The grip is excellent. I get a much better DL workout without having the bar slip out of my hands on heavy days. It also looks fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best The best and only bar to use for deadlifting, comparable to the texas deadlift bar but I personally think this one is better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition to my gym I've had it a little while now and really like it. I found using 45# bumper plates for the 1st 2 or 3 plates you slide onto the sleeve helps get more weight on the outer most part of the bar helping it to bend more. I don't really notice the bending until I have #405 on the bar. If you're not there yet I don't think you will get much of a benefit from using this bar as opposed to say an Ohio Power Bar. The only change I would have made would be to buy the raw version to take advantage of the sharper feeling knurl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feature! I bought this bar a few weeks ago and I'm very happy with it. I love the grip on the bar and it's pretty stiff just with a minimum flex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected, worth the money, like it! Really like the whip compared to a powerbar. But you know what a (would) like even more, a sumo version... Just.Do.It.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great DL Bar I’ve used this bar for about 2 weeks. Overall love the length and its ability to hold lots of plates. My one concern with this bar is how aggressive the knurling is and how narrow the bar is versus say the Ohio Power Bar.
