Rogue Operator Bar 3.0

$325.00
* Required Options

After the gods created swords, 50-caliber machine guns and Harley-Davidsons, they dreamed up the Rogue Operator Bar 3.0. With an original, military-inspired design you won’t find anywhere else in the industry, the latest edition of this versatile 28.5mm barbell keeps its distinctive Olive Drab shaft, but with a new polymer-ceramic composite finish—the same coating trusted by many firearm manufacturers for its unique durability in thin applications. Customers can also now select an alternate Desert Tan color finish. It’s more of a bold statement than an aesthetic choice.

The Rogue Operator Bar is fully machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, using advanced composite bushings and 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel for the perfect balance of whip and rigidity. The bar features Rogue’s signature knurl pattern with dual knurl marks for both Power and Oly lifts (no center knurl).

Greener, meaner, and made in America, the Rogue Operator Bar 3.0 is Guaranteed for Life against bending and/or broken collars* and is sure to leave an impression on any athlete who uses it—or even sees it. Some may ask why your gym would need an Olive Drab or Desert Tan bar. You can answer simply, “Because I want it.”

  • 1New Ceramic Coating + Military Inspired Design

    The new Operator Bar introduces an advanced ceramic-based coating, used widely in the gun industry for its remarkable durability in thin applications. This high-quality finish can deliver superb abrasion/wear/corrosion resistance over time—100X that of standard black zinc—and it includes exclusive Rogue branding, centralized on the shaft in black. The Operator Bar’s exclusive color finish combinations (Olive Drab green shaft + Black sleeves and Desert Tan shaft + Black sleeves) are unique, military-inspired options rarely found elsewhere in the industry.

  • 2190,000 PSI Steel

    This steel is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell.

    Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining which allows the bar to have a very smooth finish.

  • 3Machining & Assembly

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio, with painstaking attention to detail. The knurling has been carefully refined over the years for a firm but non-abrasive grip (there is no center knurl). We also assemble the Operator Bar with special composite bushings—a self-lubricating material often found in hi-tech aerospace equipment and military vehicles. For intense, high-rep training, these bushings dramatically minimize friction to provide a reliable spin. The final result is a bar that produces normal “whip” during Oly weightlifting with enough rigidity to hold for heavy powerlifting.

*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 Operator Bar 3.0 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bar I have used my Operator 2.0 bar for about 3 years now. I use it for CrossFit and powerlifting every single day. The bar is a beast. It is a phenomenal option for mixed use, the knurl is enough bite for heavy power lifts and smooth enough to not destroy your hands in a high rep CrossFit WOD. I love the green, I don't mind spending extra for something unique that I use everyday. Still spins great and the green coat looks as good as I'd expect after constant beatings. If I went back in time I would still buy this exact bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green I bought it because it was green and I had some extra dough. Not too shabby. It is a nice bar. Not too green anymore, but it is all good. I like the grenade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest Bar This bar was recommended by Rogue's Staff and have no regret. Based on looks, it forces you to workout. The feel, is unlike any other bar too. The bar will handle your work outs demand with not a problem. The whip of the bar is not bad and the knurles are very forgiving. You cannot go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I've had the operator bar for almost 3 years now. It's been been with me for every rep at home. It's not as sexy as it once was, but the scuffs and scratches shows its been loved. Beyond the appearance, the bar performs. The weights sit flush, the bushing spin, and the bar is as straight as the day I received it. If you want a cool looking bar because you just have to have it, this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insane bar I've owned this bar for about a month now and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Yes the color is sweet, but functionally it is impeccable. The knurl is perfection, the spin is absolutely incredible. From cleans to curls to power snatches, this bar will definitely not disappoint. It was absolutely worth every penny spent. I also purchased the 20lb medicine ball, the 53lb kettle bell, and the 230lb set of bumper plates. All the equipment is top notch and worth the money. Get your hands on some Rogue equipment and get some!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Bar Well I'm not the only one who believes that this bar is worth a five star rating. I have owned it for about three years and I've beat it up pretty good. It's been in the rain and the snow it is a must Own!
