Rogue Black Jack vs. Pendlay NexGen Bearing Bar

Looking to get a needle bearing bar, anyone use both of these bars that can say which they like better?

Thanks!

Sorry I haven't used to BlackJack, but I have to Pendley NexGen Bearing Bar and I love it.

I have a Pendlay NexGen Bearing Bar. It is the best bar I have ever used; however, I haven't used the Black Jack yet.

Re: Rogue Black Jack vs. Pendlay NexGen Bearing Bar

I haven't used the Black Jack, and Rogue doesn't even make it in a women's bar.

I lift with a Pendlay bearing bar, though, and you'd have to pry it out of my cold, dead fingers. My Pendlay Elite plates also...

Re: Rogue Black Jack vs. Pendlay NexGen Bearing Bar

I had a Blackjack bar - they are VERY nice.
Crazy me sold it to "upgrade" to a Werksan Tng bar - yeah a little more snazzy but not sure worth another $400 in retrospect.
Have not tried the Pendlay but rave reviews abound.

I haven't bought either bar yet but being as most people own the pendlay I may end up getting that unless there is someone here who has used both?

Re: Rogue Black Jack vs. Pendlay NexGen Bearing Bar

Hi folks. I know it's an old thread, but it's exactly my question.
I want to add a bearing bar to my garage gym.
I wanted to see if you folks can provide any opinions on this bar seeing that the last post on this thread was last year.
I can get the Pendlay for free shipping with Fringesport.
I can get the Rogue Black Jack @ only $14 shipping.
I have and love both the Rogue Bar and Pendlay Nextgen HD Bushing.
Thank you!

Re: Rogue Black Jack vs. Pendlay NexGen Bearing Bar

Hi Ryan!

I am obviously biased (founded FringeSport), but these are both excellent bars. My daily beater was the Pendlay HD for years and I've lifted on the Pendlay NB occasionally as well (overkill for my skill/talent/strength).

Honestly, I've never lifted on the Blackjack, but I've played with it at various boxes here and there.

Best of luck with your decision, and on this one there is no wrong answer.
