For a Power Bar the West Side Power Bar is a monster if you want aggressive knurl.

Bill,

Is the Rogue bar still guaranteed for life? It no longer says that on the page...

It does say it is warrantied/ guranteed (under the 'additional info' tab)- but it doesn't specifically say 'lifetime'

Re: #1 Reason Not to CrossFit w/ Cheap BB

I think this obsessions with cheap equipment doesn't make sense. If it is going to get use 250+ times a year for 10 or 20 years then spend a little money.

I have all Rouge bars in my gym. I believe this is the minimum quality bar one should purchase. If money is that tight get a Rouge Bar.

Having used both the Pendlay Nextgen HD and the Pendlay Nextgen Bearing there is a huge difference. Of course there is a price difference as well. If I sold my gym and was setting up a home gym I would go with a Pendlay Bar.

Seriously right. A good barbell will last you the rest of your life, screw trying to save money on that.

It's Rogue, Brendan. Not Rouge.

Re: #1 Reason Not to CrossFit w/ Cheap BB

I bought my Rogue bar and have been using it for a month. It's the bar that has the skinnier collars... I absolutely love it. So glad I bought this compared to the Troy Bar w/ Center Knurling.

Rogue Bar was well worth the $$$!

Quit picking on the dyslexic. If it passes spell check then I have no shot at catching the mistake. I proof read everything 3 or 4 times, best I can do.

The Rogue Bar is guaranteed for life against bending and/or sleeves coming off.

We just redesigned the guts of the sleeves and it was a great upgrade to the bar.

Just having some fun with you. Although, given that you have all Rogue bars at your gym and that this thread is littered with the word Rogue, I would think that would give you *some* chance of being able to spell it correctly, spell check or not.

Still, doesn't matter. I was just teasing. All in good fun. Carry on.

Bill,

Have you updated any of the other bars in your line (like the Rogue Power Bar) with these redesigns?
