Rogue Pyrros Bar – Women
The Rogue Women’s Pyrros Bar is Rogue’s highest-quality women’s bar that they offer. This Olympic Weightlifting Bar was developed alongside Pyrros Dimas, a three-time gold medalist in the Olympics.
This bar comes with a 25mm stainless steel shaft, Olympic knurl marks, 10 German needle bearings, and a 200,000 PSI tensile strength.
Furthermore, this bar is certified by the IWF to be used in competition, putting it in a distinguished group alongside the likes of Eleiko, Uesaka, etc…
Here are some further details about the bar:
Features & Highlights
- Stainless Steel Finish – Stainless steel is excellent at preventing rust and it provides a true raw feel. While it is one of the more expensive options, it is arguably the best one available. Aside from the oxidation resistance and excellent feel, stainless steel also looks fantastic. This bar offers stainless steel on both the shaft and the sleeves.
- IWF Certified – This bar has been approved by the International Weightlifting Federation to be used in competition. The IWF emblem is embossed in yellow on the shaft.
- 25mm Shaft – The 25mm shaft will generate great whip and it’s consistent with female Olympic Weightlifting standards.
- Tensile Strength – This bar offers a 200,000 PSI tensile strength, which stacks up well against the competition.
- Grooved Sleeves – The sleeves on this bar have fine grooves that help keep the plates on the bar better when you’re not using collars. The downside is that grooved sleeves make an audible zip noise when loading/unloading plates.
- American Made – This bar is made in America, but it uses German bearings.
What They’re Saying at Roguefitness.com
The Rogue Women’s Pyrros Bar receives good feedback from users, although there are only a few reviews currently available. With an average rating of 4.7/5 at roguefitness.com, here are some of the things they have said:
- “I love how this bar spins and the knurling is great. I was hesitant at first because of reviews saying the knurling was too rough. It isn’t. Get a grip and lift heavy. It feels great on my hands and I feel like I have a good grip and don’t have to use as much chalk as I was using previously with our Werksan competition bar. Also, the IWF logo is smooth and doesn’t scratch my neck up with a sticker like some other bars have.”
- “I’m in love with this barbell. It was between this one and Eleiko, went with Pyrros.. the spin is out of this world, the only thing is that the barbell is a little rough when doing a complex. Besides that bar is completely worth it”
- “Really nice bar, used one for a training session at a USAW event. Nearly the same feel and design as the bars from Sweden (you know who I’m talking about). The bar feels tight and connected, spins well. Passive knurl in the center is on point. End caps are a nice touch and appear to be of the highest quality. Even the IWF Cerakote marking is a really nice touch. Considering all the other six IWF brands use a sticker that will eventually peel. This is a really nice bar for comp, providing Rogue can get their bumpers also certified by the IWF.”
- “My only problem with this bar is that it’s too aggressive for training. The knurl is somewhat excessive. My hand were on fire after about an hour of use. Rogue should dial it back a bit and develop a dedicated training version of this same bar. This bar is a 5 Star barbell if the use is for competition.”
