Quality on a budgetReviewed by Joe on July 05, 2014
I purchased this bar as a starter bar for my garage box at home. I have been abusing it daily for the past 8 months and it has yet to let me down. Sure it may not be your ideal Oly bar (saving up for an Ohio) but it gets the job done when you're cranking out some WODs. Yet another quality Rogue item that I've put to the test and you guys continue to keep me thoroughly happy with your outstanding products.
Solid bar, great priceReviewed by Hardcore on April 16, 2014
It lives up to it's name. Can't be happier with the price or the quality of this bar. Great bar!!!
Can't beat this bar for the priceReviewed by Mike D on March 20, 2014
I wasn't expecting much when I bought this bar because of the price, but when it came I was really impressed with it. I'm not a competitive lifter and I have no doubt I can get plenty strong with this bar, I doubt I'll need to upgrade anytime soon. The bar is thicker but I can still hook it and use it for deadlifts without an issue, people with smaller hands may have some trouble gripping this bar.
Pretty good bar for the priceReviewed by Coach VP on March 02, 2014
Our CrossFit gym bought five of these bars several years ago. They are all still in service. We've bent a few bars, dropping them loaded on racks and safeties. But somehow these are still going. They are definitely not as smooth-spinning as the Ohio Bars and they rattle when spun! People do "fight" over the Ohio bars for Olympic lifting! Some people prefer these fat bars for squats. However, I will still keep the Beaters around for squats and deadlifts even after I save up for several of the new Rogue Oly bars. (Can't wait, BTW.) In general I find Rogue equipment to be very durable and tough enough to stand up to the abuse CrossFitters dish out.
Great bar for me so farReviewed by Jake on February 05, 2014
I've had my beater bar for almost a year and had absolutely no problem with it, it's exceeded my expectations especially for the price of the bar.
Great barReviewed by Lewis O on January 02, 2014
I have of these bars in my gym. This is a great beginners bars. The only down fall is all the rattling when the bar drops but besides that you definitely get a quality bar for and great price!
Great BarReviewed by Nic on December 31, 2013
Great bar, great price. Like the extra thickness.
Awesome bar even better priceReviewed by Xrayguy on October 27, 2013
Really amazing bar for the money. I was using bars from the box stores that would maul my hands on heavy lifts. The knurling on the bar is perfect and easy to grip. The extra thickness is not a big deal and actually fits my hands well. If you are on a budget and want a high quality bar you can't go wrong with this one. I will only buy my bars from Rogue from now on. Thanks for a great product Rogue.
Awesome Bar!Reviewed by Pretty MF on June 19, 2013
Love this bar , as others have stated before its a little bit thicker. If you're like me and have been using the regular bars for years, then a great challenge, feels funny at first but once you start banging away its a non factor. Bottom line it's money well spent in my book. Few bless but no big deal, I sort of like that it adds to the garage gym feel. Shipping is A+... Thanks Rogue and Courtney for your quick response to my question on the P-4 pull up system I purchased as well. You have my business from here on out!
Awesome BarReviewed by Matt on June 06, 2013
Recently bought the beater bar. At first i was hesitant, figuring that for this price there was no way this could be a good bar. Holy crap was i surprised. This bar is awesome. Its a little thicker than most bars, it spins well when doing power lifts and i'm pretty sure it cold withstand a grenade!
