ohio bar vs froning bar?

is there any real difference between the two? i know the froning bushing bar just came out so its hard to get feedback.
i plan on ordering one soon for a multi purpose bar (have a squat and deadlift bar)

It is +$13 for just the Froning name/ end cap design. They are the same bar from what I understand.

Re: ohio bar vs froning bar?

All the specs are the same... It's just got different end caps. Maybe there's a knurling difference but I doubt it.

As far as the bushing bar version of the Froning is concerned, it's simply a black zinc version of the Ohio bar with different end caps. The bearing version is a black zinc version of the new olympic weightlifting bar they make.

From what the people from Rogue said, the Bushing bar IS the Ohio Bar 1.2, with the Froning endcap on it.
The Oly bar is the Oly bar with black on black zinc. If you were hoping for a "Blackjack" bar or an all black zinc oly bar with the new mods, the Froning bearing bar is your choice.
Here's what Rogue said:

Steven,
...

The only difference between the bars, is that the Froning Bar is spec'd out to his preference of Black on Black Zinc.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Thanks,

Chris
