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 113.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Deadlift Bar I ordered this in June for our home gym when we were moving back from overseas. I’d used a deadlift bar at the gym we belonged to (I believe it was an Eleiko as all the bars in the gym seemed to be but not sure). Reading some of the reviews about over aggressive knurling on this bar had me a little concerned but I figured I’d get used to it. I deadlift every 3 days cycling a heavy/light session and I love this bar. I don’t have overly calloused hands and have had zero issues with it. Having said that, I do wear sweatpants when doing sumo stance as I’m sure it would take a nice chunk out of my shins. Bar arrived with iron filings(?) that would come off on my hands but a stiff nylon brush got rid of it easily. Thank you to the rogue customer service team as I ordered this as part of a larger order and they were incredibly helpful. Also thank you to garagegymreviews and Brandon Campbell Diamond for all their super-helpful reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ohio Deadlift Excellent whippy bar. Excellent postage and handling and prompt delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right combination of knurl and whip. Recommend paying the difference for the step-up bar. Using a color on the bar makes it iconic not to be confused as a regular bar. This helps with potential liability problems.
