Just unwrapped my new Rogue Bar...

Just unwrapped my new Rogue bar that was delivered today. It felt like Christmas morning. I know there are others and many people have their preferences but I have never held a bar this nice before.

New bumpers are on the patio waiting, do-wins and chalk are on the way. A small home gym is born.

I chose the Rogue Bar because I thought it would be the best quality all-around bar for power and o-lifts. This is my novice interpretation based upon what everyone else has written. In contention were the B&R and Pendlay HD. My thought now is that in the future I may also choose a bearing bar.

Also, I live in South Florida and my home gym will be my screened in covered patio. The Rogue Bar seems to be the most maintenance friendly. I'll follow up as I go but the bar is solid and spins much better than the bars at my former box.

Re: Just unwrapped my new Rogue Bar...

Nice! Having a garage gym is SO nice.

2.5 years ago when I moved into my new house, I ordered a pile of bumpers, a squat stand, 2 KBs and a rogue bar, and my garage gym was born.

Fast forward to today. I just ordered another 6 Rogue Bars. We'll have 16 of them at CF Aspire when they arrive. In my opinion, they are the best bar available under $300.

(The B&R bar is also incredible, and if I preferred having a center knurling, I'd have 16 of them instead)

Thanks, Justin. Same thing here. Kettlebells, bumpers and barbell. I'm looking forward to working on my own... Congrats, sounds like you have a nice set up.

Re: Just unwrapped my new Rogue Bar...

Awesome for you, im jealous! I ordered the B&R last night baby!!! Though the zinc coating and the 28.4mm was tasty on the Rogue Bar, I wanted that center knurl on at least one of my bars. Counting the days till mine shows up now.
