Cerakote has been a game changer in the industry; a polymer-ceramic composite coating first popularized in the gun industry for its durability in thin applications. Offering wear and corrosion resistance up to 100X that of black zinc, it’s a finish worthy of the greatest athletes in the world. The versatility of this finish also enables us to create a wider array of customized designs, including the military-inspired colorway, Tek Gray Camo.
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.
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.
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.
Please Note: Cerakote has an excellent resistance to corrosion, but metal-to-metal contact, particular on the sleeves, can still cause wear over time. For the best long term results, some cleaning and maintenance may be required. See our Ohio Bar Care Page for more info.

*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.
