Rogue Bar or Castro Bar? Difference?

Hello

Can anyone tell me the difference between a rogue bar and a rogue castro bar. they seem like they are the same bar with one being bare steel and the other black oxide though the rogue bar also comes in black oxide. they are also both the same price. I need an all purpose bar for my crossfit sessions as opposed to pure oly lifts. I will buy a pendlay enxgen bar for that.

any info would be great.

Izzet:

The Castro bar is a "naked" version of the Rogue bar so basically just the bare steel version.

Some people like the bare steel feel like the B&R bar.

The Rogue Bar is our go to multi-purpose bar.
