Product Description

Deceptively Simple Grip Training

Featuring the same over-sized 1.9” outside diameter as the standard Rogue Axle, the Stubby Axle is two feet shorter (5’ vs. 7’)—with 8” of loadable sleeve length and a condensed 43” between the collars. This creates a challenging, change-of-pace fat bar, and another excellent option for building better wrist and grip strength without deviating much from your regular lifting regimen.

Rogue Stubby Axle

Deceptively Simple Grip Training

Featuring the same over-sized 1.9” outside diameter as the standard Rogue Axle, the Stubby Axle is two feet shorter (5’ vs. 7’)—with 8” of loadable sleeve length and a condensed 43” between the collars. This creates a challenging, change-of-pace fat bar, and another excellent option for building better wrist and grip strength without deviating much from your regular lifting regimen.

The Rogue Stubby Axle has been battle tested in competition at The CrossFit Games, and includes our signature black powder coat finish for a firm, comfortable grip.

IMPORTANT: Some standard barbell collars may not work on this specialty bar. We recommend using Axle Collars with this barbell.

Ok for some light technique work
This is a lightweight bar that is easy to handle and store. However, standard collars do not work on this bar, so you also have to purchase the speciality collars. The paint does scratch off with usage, as evident by some flaking off during delivery.

Good all round
Love using this bar for most if not all things. It’s a forearm killer. Just wish I knew the max capacity that it would hold without damage.

Pro: Accessibility -Con: Incompatibility
The sleeve diameter on the Stubby barbell is only 1.9", while other commercial gyms use 1.96" sleeves. So, you can't use the same collars. The idea of having to buy Rogue-specific collars is very inconvenient. Also, due to the shortened (stubby) length, you cannot rack it anywhere and thus cannot use it for squats or bench press. The like the grip and handling of it, but just wish it was more compatible with my gym.

Disappointing Quality Control
This axle bar arrived with chips in the powder coating, in multiple places (see photos). I realize it won’t last forever, but it is disappointing to have it arrive brand new in that condition. There are also some chips or particles inside the bar which makes it sound like a maraca when you power clean. Third, the center sticker was place crooked, which I realize is minor, but you do need it for a visual centering cue, and it looks terrible. This is Titan Fitness like quality…for Rogue pricing.

Game changer
I just received my bar yesterday after purchasing it last friday. This bar is definitely a game changer to your training. With it being the same diameter as the collars on the olympic bars, when performing things such as cleans, unless you have hands as big as the hulk to perform a hookgrip on the bar, it also works on the muscles in your forearm. Is the bar shorter in length than bars like the Ohio bar? Yes but that's where it also transforms your training in things like the overhead squat where it makes you focus on core stabilization. Please do not try to snatch with this bar unless your skills are that good. Once again narrower bar requires a solid technique. I am glad that i purchased this bar and I can't wait to see how it transforms my training.

Awesome piece of gear
Bought this a few months ago and have been using it extensively for everything from overhead press, bent over row, Romanian deadlift, etc. I had previously bought Fat Gripz, which are great in their own right, but this bar gives me further excuse to work on grip strength.
