Rogue Ohio Power Bar
While the name of Rogue stands out as being a quality brand among weightlifting aficionados, some of the company’s bars are one and the same kind of bar, except with different finishes. The Rogue Ohio Bar fits under this category. The Castro bar, which is made of steel, the Froning Bushing Bar, which showcases black zinc and the brand’s Operator bar (featured in olive) are all the Ohio Bar in various finishes. Therefore, you might say this review covers those bars as well.

Rogue bars generally can be listed in one or more four kinds of classifications. Bars can fall under the category of Cross Fit and General Weightlifting, Bars Designed for Women, Olympic Weightlifting bars that are 22 mm in size and Powerlifters. The Ohio bar and the aforementioned bars fall under two of the four categories. The Ohio bar is made for Cross Fit and general weight lifting activities as well as for power lifting routines. It is not considered the bar to use if you wish to engage in Olympic weightlifting on a routine basis.
If you are new to weightlifting, you will soon find that most weightlifters like to stick to specific brands. Rogue is one of these weightlifting brands. Buyers of Rogue bars are known to keep their barbells for many years. For anyone committed to the exercise then, Rogue provides plenty of ways to test your abilities in this respect.
How The Ohio Bar Is Made
The knurling process is a form of art in the barbell industry. Up-to-date Haas machines are used for machining bar shafts and the knurling process has become an art in the manufacturing of these bars. Producers say that there is a certain “look and feel” that goes into the testing of every bar. The Rogue Ohio bar is offered in three finishes, which also impact the feel of the knurl. For example, black oxide is one of the finishes used. The steel treatment provides the best knurl feel and can be likened to a naked bar.
