Six months after my first post on the Rogue barbell HG, not much has changed except my expectations. Here are a few photos of the Rogue barbell HG in its current state
As you can see the bar and plates have remained in great condition, even with continuous extreme use on concrete floors. Not only has its outside appearance remained strong but the bearings and flexibility of the bar has not shown any sign of degradation. The quality of the bar’s materials also surprises me. An older bar I have used has shown rust developing along the edges of the bar and has lost some stability around the weight collar. Although it has been used much longer than the Rogue barbell it’s the rate of deterioration that is greater.
I highly recommend this bar for its strength, durability and style. Hopefully I will report in another 6 months time with the same comments.
