Rogue TB-1 Trap Bar Review
Love the Rogue TB-1. It's definitely not perfect...for instance the knurling is SHARP. I'm telling you, it is crazy sharp. But I like that. I do like the new bars that are open-ended, but Rogue makes great equipment. My biggest issue with this bar and why I give it 4 stars is that the sleeves are powder coated and they end up chipping. I hate that part. Other than that, awesome bar.
Version 2.0 of the Rogue TB-1 Trap Bar features the same general design and dimensions of the original, but with an updated, precision sleeve construction that reduces the starting weight of the bar by more than 25 percent. This makes the TB-1 easier to maneuver without limiting its effectiveness. Simply put, if you want to lift massive weight, this tool still belongs in your arsenal.
The Trap Bar’s hexagonal design and knurled, neutral grip handles make it optimized for performing deadlifts that put less stress on the lumbar spine—since the load is centered and not off axis like a traditional deadlift. This same benefit makes the TB-1 2.0 a useful specialty bar for beginners, as well as athletes dealing with nagging back issues or rehabbing from other injuries.
We manufacture the TB-1 in Columbus, OH, and it's fully compatible with standard Oly plates.
