Rogue Ohio Bar with Spacers?
I recently purchased an Ohio bar from Craigslist. I took it apart to clean it and found that there were spacers in both ends and a two half washers that fit into a groove. All of the videos I can find on bar maintenance show only the two clips. The end caps are Ohio end caps and the bar has brass bushings. End caps are dated 2014.

Anyone else have an Ohio bar with spacers in the ends? Is this normal or did I get something other than an Ohio bar?

I know that the older Ohio 1.2's are built slightly differently in the sleeves than the more modern ones (2015-2016). This is exhibited in the newer bars spinning much faster than the older ones ever did. Perhaps this is one of the changes Rogue made to the bar (now we have the Ohio Bar 1.25)

I sent pictures to Rogue and they confirmed that this is correct construction for a Rogue Ohio bar. Guess I'm good to go.

Thanks for all the looks and reply...
