Rogue Fitness has just released a brand new Echo Bar. This is the bar that I've suggested multiple times as a great option for CrossFit Affiliates or just the general population who doesn't want to drop a lot of money on a bar.
Info from Rogue Fitness:
By machining and assembling the Rogue Echo Bar at our Columbus manufacturing facility, we’ve been able to produce an economically priced 20KG bushing bar built to the same high standards as many of our leading competition bars.
The 28.5mm Echo Bar features the same 190,000 PSI tensile strength steel as our flagship Rogue Ohio Bar, and includes a bright zinc finish on both the shaft and sleeves. There are single Olympic knurl marks (with no center knurl), and an innovative proprietary sleeve design—which allows for a more efficient assembly, saving the customer on costs.
All orders of the Echo Bar also come with a 1-year warranty.*
*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.
Rogue Fitness has been selling Bumper Plates for years, but up until this point hadn't done much with iron plates. That changes with the release of the Rogue Machined Olympic Plates. Read More
