Rogue Ohio Deadlift Bar - Black Zinc

The Rogue Ohio Deadlift Bar is one of our finest, precision-engineered power bars to date, generating a higher amount of flex ideal for deadlifting. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the ODB features a 190,000 PSI shaft with a comparatively thin diameter (27MM) and longer overall length (90.50" is just within most powerlifting federation standards). This combination creates a bar that’s both easier to grip and designed for increased whip/flex when pulling. For many power lifters, that greater flex means being able to pull from a higher point before the plates break off the floor, potentially increasing the amount of weight that can be lifted in the process.

Like all Rogue bushing bars, the Ohio Deadlift Bar includes sleeves with a quality snap ring construction—far superior to the cheaply produced bolt-and-pin style sleeves of some other brands. The powerlifting knurl marks on this bar are a bit deeper / more aggressive than our Ohio Power Bar, but machined in the same pattern. There is no center knurl.

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.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

*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.

Rogue Ohio Deadlift Bar - Black Zinc is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 107.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Knurl. Ohio DL Bar >>> OKIE DL Bar Had this bar for a couple weeks now and pulled 600lbs on it. I also own an OKIE DL Bar. No comparison as far as quality, the Ohio DL Bar is far better. I think the whip and performance is very similar but the knurling on the Rogue bar is perfection. It has great grip and doesn't have the sharp, painful knurl of the OKIE...Rogue nailed it. Additionally, the fit and finish of the Rogue bar is top notch as you would expect... The OKIE bar looks like it was built in a garage somewhere...not good. If you are considering an OKIE DL Bar vs an Ohio DL Bar, don't waste your money on the OKIE. Go with the Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent DL Bar I have owned this for a few months now and I love it. The knurling is fairly aggressive - it won't exactly rip your hands open but you are not going to drop the bar either. It's just right for my personal taste. The whip is excellent and it makes a big difference when things start getting heavy. Deadlifting on this compared to a general purpose or power bar is quite different in a good way. The whip almost takes you by surprise. Slightly smaller diameter is noticeable and appreciated. This bar feels great in hand with heavy loads. Buy it, you'll love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do we need another 5 star review? The Ohio Deadlift Bar is a high quality product. I have the variant with a black zinc finish. Both my wife and I deadlift with the bar weekly or more. I lift heavy and she does higher volume. It meets both of our needs. It has average knurl that won’t tear up your hands like the Texas Deadlift bar. It has a little bend and whip under 600 lbs. most folks are going to appreciate the purchase. If you have limited space, this baby is longer than a typical bar. I struggle to store it upright in a horizontal barbell station without hitting the ceiling loading and unloading it. My clearance is average (98 inches). Overall - we will give this bar another 5 star review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar! Bar was delivered Wednesday. Folks at UPS beat the end of the package so severely the metal plug almost came out. I assume it spent a good amount of time on its end even though there was a sticker clearly affixed stating not to..... Bar looks to be GTG regardless of UPS efforts. Straight, clean, bare metal, sticky grip, spin is lackluster but got a little bit better with todays first use....not that I expected it to be as it is a deadlift bar. It starts to get a whip north of 250. Very happy with my purchase, wife likes it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whip it, whip it good! I'm a 170 lb intermediate lifter in my mid 40's and focusing more this year on strength gains in the big three lifts and pursuing a 500 lb deadlift. I don't know if this bar will make that number easier to attain with the flex/whip at those weights, but it sure brings a level of excitement and satisfaction to use on deadlift day! Quality is top notch and the knurling is absolutely perfect in my mind. Agressive, but doesn't tear up my hands. The smaller diameter does seem to allow for better grip, but I can't completely decide whether it's the diameter or knurling that helps me. I've never struggled with grip problems with a standard bar either. Overall I'm excited every time I get to use this bar. Get one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar I should of started my garage gym way before Covid. It’s very difficult to get all the essential equipment needed to start up. After checking the site multiple times daily I finally got lucky and was able to buy this dead lift bar. Been using this bar for about a month now. Bar looks amazing and feels even better. The quality is far better than what you will find in your local gym. The knurling is great. In my opinion this should be standard on barbells. I used it for deadlifts, squats, bench and as a curl bar. I used it for other exercises because I don’t have any other bar, yet. It does feel weird, squatting and benching, because of the whip. This Monday the power bar I ordered should be in and the deadlift bar will be strictly for deadlifts. It’s a great bar. You won’t be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for heavy deadlifts I rewarded myself with this bar after breaking the five hundred pound mark. It takes about that much to appreciate the whip the bar offers. A feeling I really like. I was worried about the knurl being to aggressive but it's perfect. It's a lot more serious than the knurl on the Ohio bar. But it grips the hand so well. And the smaller diameter does make hook grip a tad more tolerable. This bar is an excellent tool for the serious deadlifter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I thought it would be On my heavier lifts I have defaulted to an alternated grip (I have weak grip strength). I read here on some of the reviews that the knurling was "aggressive." I was hoping that the knurling on this bar would allow me to use a pronated grip since its just more comfortable for me. As I thought, it has. I'm able to hold the grip on heavier sets except for the last one. I'll have to work on my grip to get me over. I am very happy with this bar. Also, it just looks cool with some plates on it.
