    anyone use one of these? I'm on the market for a bar. Recently got a home gym set up and bought a shit bar from play it again sports for like 80 bucks. The knurling is shit and there's no whip to it. The beater bar is reasonably priced, I'm not buying a damn Texas bar for a home gym.

    Anyone have any other poverty barbells that they purchased and enjoy?

    I read they have a year guarantee against bending. I don't think Rogue would have a problem replacing a bar that bent after someone only loaded it with 455 and hasn't dropped it.

    Ah I misunderstood. I've only read reviews that said it was study but many don't like the thickness.

    Can't be as bad as the piece of shit I'm using, had to switch to straps instead of an over/under grip because the knurling is practically smooth and it's pretty thick

    Rogue makes pretty good equipment. Just purchased their Ohio Power Bar and am really happy with it so far. If it's within your price range I'd say go for it. The barbell is the most important piece of equipment you're going to own, so might as well splurge a bit.

    Beater Bar is awesome. Dont think you can beat it for the price.

    If you are not interested in WL movements the Ohio Power Bar would be your best bet. If you want to do a little bit of everything the Rogue Bar would probably be the best bang for your buck.

    Why are you opposed to saving up for a good bar? Texas Power Bars aren't even that expensive. Neither are the Rogue Ohio Power Bars. Buy a good one once and never have to worry about buying another bar again. A couple hundred dollars is a pretty small investment for the most important part of your gym. Toss it on a credit card and pay it off over a couple months, if need be.

    I was under the impression that a Texas bar was in the neighborhood of $700, which I simply can't justify for my purposes of squatting, deadlifting and benching 3x a week.....now that I think of it, might Be a worthy investment lol

    Did you do literally any research before starting this thread?

    You can get Texas power bars for under $300 and the Rogue OPBs aren't much more.

    Rogue's Ohio Power Bar w/ the black zinc coating was $275 + shipping. Bare steel version is $250 + shipping. I went with the zinc coating since NY is decently humid and I'd rather spend a bit more then worry about it rusting if I'm a bit lax on the maintenance for a few months.
