Product Description

Rogue 29mm Stump Bar

The Rogue Stump Bar is a rackable, short-sleeve version of our stainless steel Ohio Power Bar, built with the same 29mm diameter, little-to-no flex shaft (200,000 PSI), bronze bushings, and aggressive knurl pattern (in single powerlifting knurl marks + center knurl). Though the shorter sleeve length (7.3125” vs 16.25”) reduces its potential weight loads, the 30 LB Stump Bar is ideal for home gym owners who train in tight quarters and/or don’t need full-length sleeves for their powerlifting movements. With thinner plates such as our USA Olympic Plates or Calibrated Steel Plates the Stump can still be loaded to over 500LBs.

Each bar is manufactured in the USA and rated as an F16-R in our F-Scale durability testing. The stainless steel delivers both superior oxidation resistance and an accurate feel of the intended knurl, as no additional coating affects the original precision-machined pattern. For the sleeves, we used a new proprietary, matte-black finishing process that transforms the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the sleeves’ long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance. 

Please Note: Rogue recommends using a synthetic bristle brush, NOT a steel brush, to clean a stainless steel shaft. Steel on steel can cause rusting over time. See more tips here: Bar Care & Maintenance.

Key Features of the 29MM Stump Bar

A Short But Rackable Power Bar
1

A Short But Rackable Power Bar

The Stump Bar is a space-saver and a game-changer for gym owners who want the feel, function, and rackability of a standard power bar, but don’t need the maximum loadable sleeve length. At a total length of 68.3125”, this bar is roughly 18” inches shorter than the Ohio Power Bar, and weighs 15 LBS less unloaded (30 LB vs 45LB). However, with a standard 29mm diameter shaft, powerlifting knurl marks, and rack-compatible sleeve spacing, the Stump Bar allows athletes to train exactly as they would with a full-length bar. Ample space is saved, and only the plate load potential is reduced.

200,000 PSI Tensile Strength
2

200,000 PSI Tensile Strength

The 29mm diameter steel shaft has a tensile strength of 200,000 PSI, same as our full-length Ohio Power Bar. This means it has superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the Stump Bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel. Its rating of F16-R in our F-Scale durability testing is twice that of the full-length Ohio Power Bar, as the shorter sleeves reduce the effect of each impact on the bar.

Aggressive Knurl
3

Aggressive Knurl

The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

Finishing Touches
4

Finishing Touches

Each Stump Bar features a stainless steel shaft and a proprietary matte black sleeve finish. Stainless steel knows no rivals when it comes to oxidation resistance, and it’s also excellent for maintaining the original intended feel of the knurl. Our new sleeve finishing process is also uniquely effective, transforming the surface of the steel rather than coating it, greatly increasing the long-term corrosion resistance and color endurance of the matte black finish.

F SCALE™

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.

OXIDATION RATE

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.

*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.

Good for small spaces.
Good for tight spaces like supplemental weight stations

Stumpy Strong!
Perfect bar for small spaces - but big enough to still accommodate heavy presses. Knurling was surprising aggressive (i was expecting something passive like the Ohio bar), so another big plus for that! Another 5 star bar from Rogue ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Good, but could be great. Weird knurl choice
cliff notes: Great bar, but aggressive knurl doesn't make sense I train in a tight space with mostly steel plates. This is a high quality stainless bar that I want to love, but the knurl is a let down. Who power lifts with a shorty bar? Aggressive knurl was a poor design decision. If you're pulling serious weight, then you want longer sleeves right? This bar would have nearly been perfect but honestly the knurl is silly. If rogue ever redesigns this I'll be putting this thing on craigslist faster then a reverse hyper that became a drink stand. A more moderate knurl would have given this 5 stars.

Perfect in every way
New home gym with power rack in a limited space. I’m so happy to have found this Stainless Ohio Power Stump. Was torn between this and the C-70S. Main difference is the center knurl and the slightly bigger diameter.

Great option for small space
This bar is amazing, mostly because it's one of the few options out there for us with small spaces. To easily rack/unload weight I needed to have enough space and anything over 75 " it's just going to ruin the flow. I wish there were more sleeve length options on the other popular bars but for now this is the best one.

10 out of 10
Absolutely love this bar. I'm a collector of high end bars and this is my new favorite. From the knurl and zero sleeve play, to the asthetics and strength, this is my goto now for deads and pressing. I didn't even get it to save space, but just liked the idea of a shorter sleeve with calibrated plates. Highly recommend. Also Rogue was exceptional as usual with quick delivery. Good job team Rogue.

Awesome bar
It's the perfect size for my limited space. These short bars really are the future for home gyms. When I would stand my old 7 foot bar up I would almost put it through my ceiling! No chace with this little guy. Also 29mm seems to be the idea thickness for my sausage links...

Preferred bar over Ohio Bar
Got the Stump two weeks ago. I prefer it for Powerlifting exercises over my Ohio bar in black oxide. The knurl allows a good grip and is not too aggressive. Definitely recommend for small spaces.
