Product Description

The MG-4C is the latest evolution of the Rogue specialty multi-grip barbell, available here with a 3.5” cambered frame (a Flat Frame and Narrow Camber version are sold separately). Our patent pending design offers two major advantages over other multi-grip bars on the market:

  1. The sleeves rotate in the style of a standard barbell and come in your choice of two nearly indestructible finishes.
  2. Athletes can select both the width and angle of the handles, building a bar that is optimized for their size and training preferences.

The MG-4C’s friction welded sleeves, which are available with 9” of loadable length or 15.5” of loadable length, use the same internal components as our standard barbells and rotate on shafts made from the same stainless steel as our power bars. The distance between the sleeves is also the standard 51.5”, making the bar rackable on any Rogue power rack, squat stand, rig, or bench.

MG-4C Camber Multi-Grip Bar

The MG-4C is the latest evolution of the Rogue specialty multi-grip barbell, available here with a 3.5” cambered frame (a Flat Frame and Narrow Camber version are sold separately). Our patent pending design offers two major advantages over other multi-grip bars on the market:

  1. The sleeves rotate in the style of a standard barbell and come in your choice of two nearly indestructible finishes.
  2. Athletes can select both the width and angle of the handles, building a bar that is optimized for their size and training preferences.

The MG-4C’s friction welded sleeves, which are available with 9” of loadable length or 15.5” of loadable length, use the same internal components as our standard barbells and rotate on shafts made from the same stainless steel as our power bars. The distance between the sleeves is also the standard 51.5”, making the bar rackable on any Rogue power rack, squat stand, rig, or bench.


Two Sleeve Length Options (Both are Rackable):

  • 15.5” of Loadable Sleeve Space - 55 LB unloaded bar weight (frame + sleeves + 2 handles). Available with stainless steel or proprietary matte black finish.
  • 9” of Loadable Sleeve Space - 45 LB unloaded bar weight (frame + sleeves + 2 handles). Available with stainless steel or proprietary matte black finish.

*The shaft is stainless steel in all versions, regardless of sleeve finish or length.

In addition to the pair of straight 28.5mm handles included standard with the MG-4C, customers can order more handle pairs from the dropdown menu in a range of configurations.

ADDITIONAL HANDLE PAIR OPTIONS (AT VARIABLE COST):

  • 28.5mm - Straight, 16-degree, or 20-degree angle. Stainless steel or proprietary matte black finish.
  • 32mm - Straight, 16-degree, or 20-degree angle. Stainless steel or proprietary matte black finish. [The straight 32mm handles include a center knurl mark for assisting the customer in finding the center of the handle].


All handle types have the same knurl pattern as our Ohio Bars and can be added to the frame at 1-inch intervals, meaning that a set can be functionally spaced anywhere from a minimum of 6” to a maximum of 26” apart. This enables athletes to customize their bar for multiple movements—from close grip presses and triceps work to biomechanically optimized grips at shoulder-width and beyond. 

The sleeves, handles, and hardware of the MG-4C are all finished in your choice of either stainless steel or our proprietary matte black finish. Both of these extremely durable, corrosion-resistant options will maintain the look and performance of the sleeves across daily use. And because the proprietary matte black finish doesn’t add any thickness when applied, customers can expect that both the stainless and black handle options will feel exactly as they would coming straight out of the lathe. Note: The handle and bolt finish will match your selected sleeve finish. 

The 41” frame portion of the bar is built from 1.5” x 1.5” 11-gauge steel tubing with 1/4” plates, a machined socket, and a matte black powder coat finish. The cambered shape with 3.5” of drop allows for a greater range of motion when using the outer handles on certain movements (such as bench or rows), and also helps to improve stability, as the bar’s center of mass–relative to hand placement–is lower. 

The sleeves are assembled to the shafts by our barbell assembly team, but to save on shipping costs, we developed a unique interlocking taper design that allows for easy assembly with a single nut using the included wrench. The joint created by this interlocking taper is every bit as strong as a weld, and will hold up to whatever an athlete throws at it. Even after the nut is removed, it takes a lot of force with a mallet to free the shaft from the socket (something to keep in mind if you decide to change to a different sleeve length at a later date)

IMPORTANT: The MG-4C Bar ships with the sleeve assemblies and handles disconnected from the frame, but all required hardware and tools for assembly are provided, including a set of 5/16” allen keys + 1/2” x 2-½” button heads bolts for the handles and a 1.5” Monster Wrench for securing the sleeve to the frame.

Key Features of the MG-4 Flat Multi-Grip Bar

Loading

Adjustable Knurled Handles

The MG-4C comes standard with (2) straight knurled grip handles (28.5mm outside diameter) in your choice of a stainless steel or proprietary matte black finish. With their threaded design, these removable handles can be positioned anywhere along the bar’s 41” long frame, using the included allen keys for attachment. Functional spacing options range from a minimum or 6” to a max of 26”. Additional handle pairs can be selected in the purchase area (at extra cost), with standard Straight Handle and two Angled Handle options available. Keep in mind, the ideal biomechanical angle for an efficient, safe lift expands as the handles move further apart. Rogue recommends the following handle spacing for Angled Handles when pressing:

20-degree: 26" or 22" spacing
16 degree: 18" or 14" spacing
Straight: 10" or 6" spacing

Additional configurations may work for other movements, as closely spaced angled handles may work well for skull crushers for many athletes.

Barbell Style Sleeves in 2 Length Options

Available in standard (15.5” loadable length) and short (9”) variants, the rackable sleeves on the MG-4C are built using the same construction methods and components as our Rogue Power Bar, producing a smooth rotation. The two quality sleeve finish options (stainless steel and proprietary matte black) also help eliminate paint chipping and maximize the bar’s long-term corrosion resistance. Please Note: The sleeve assemblies ship disconnected from the frame and can be attached using the included 1.5” Monster Wrench. They can also be removed and replaced, but removal will require additional tools (such as a rubber mallet) and a means of securing the frame in place.

Cambered Frame

The cambered 41” frame has a depth of 3.5” and is built from 1.5” x 1.5” 11-gauge steel tubing with 1/4” laser-cut plates and a machined socket. Mounting holes for the handles are 1” on center all along the sides, and the frame is finished in the same soft touch matte black powdercoat as our recently released RM43 line of racks. The cambered shape allows for a greater range of motion when using the outer handles on certain movements (such as bench or rows), and also helps to improve stability and reduce wobbling, as the bar’s center of mass–relative to hand placement–is lower.

Interlocking Taper Design and Machined Nut

The shaft of the sleeve connects to the frame using an interlocking taper; a staple of the machine tool industry for more than a century. The conical shape of the shaft is inserted into a conical cylinder that, when tightened with the machined hex nut, creates an extremely rigid joint.

Great Bar
I was about exchange this bar for the narrow version prior to opening the packaging and rogue sent me the returning instructions with no problem. I then decided to open the packing and see for myself why the narrow one "is so much better" Like I read on reviews and saw on YouTube videos. I came to realize after a few different workouts that I really like this bar and decided to keep it. No problem with balancing, width, or length of the bar what so ever and very well made. The only reason it got 4 stars and not 5 is because I was under the impression that since I ordered a few more grips in 32mm stainless, that rogue would include a 32mm grip instead of the 28mm that the bar originally comes with. So I now have 2 28mm grips as paper weight.

Great Tool
I bought this in July and got it near the end of it. I had to have my bar replaced as one of the sleeves would not go in all the way but Rogue made things right. Overall this bar is pretty great. I got the short sleeves which I highly recommend. I also got one of each handle so I wont need to move them around. Some people say it wobbles but I have not had any issues with stability on it and I have gone close to 300# with no issue. It may be an issue if you have a smaller hand or are off center.

Poorly design bar despite a great look
I am a huge fan of Rogue and dozens of their products . I have always been extremely pleased by their stellar products. I wish it was the case here as well… I have bought this bar a few weeks ago and am disappointed about it. While it is a great looking bar, super easy to assemble, with big sturdy hardware, the bar is ultimately extremely unstable and wobble a LOT, making the heavy lifts feel unsafe. Surely, the new narrow version might correct this pain points, making the « wide/basic » version unnecessary.

Our MG-4C matches the dims of the multi-grip bars we've offered for 10 years. We are growing our offering and are coming out with different chassis options. We are happy to extend an exchange for the Narrow frame.

Excellent Bar, but....
Overall, extremely satisfied with this bar however, it definitely needs an option for thicker handles; perhaps the 32MM size that are now standard on the MG-4CN. Kind of wish I had waited for its release but, hindsight is always 20/20.

Disappointing
This is the first Rogue product I wished I hadn't purchased. First, it's not nearly as customizable as it seems. It's enough of a hassle to setup that you'll get the handles placed and rarely (if ever) change them. Second, the bar is just so unstable. Because its SO wide it really wobbles. And because of the width, there are really no exercised you can use it for other than bench pressing. Military presses or other exercises... it's far too wide. And the handles... I got the Long handles an wish I'd got the short. And lastly, it's just too expensive for what it actually is. Once you get the handles and finish... its far cheaper to get a different cambered football bar. You're not overpaying for quality, you're overpaying for mediocrity.

It's Ok
I really wanted to love this bar and was really excited to get it, even with the high price. The grips are too wide, you have to make sure your grip is just about perfect otherwise it is off balanced. Thicker grips would be nice too, but maybe they will be added as option some day. I should have waited for the reviews to come in before purchasing it. I like it, I just wouldn't buy it again given the high price and would prefer a narrower version.

Great bar with a learning curve.
At first i was having trouble getting used to the balance, but after a few weeks and some change how to the handle placements, I love it. A few thoughts after having it for a month+: - Spring for the stainless. My handles arrived with minor scratches and scuffs, and some of the handles are a slightly lighter shade of black than the others. If aesthetics are important to you, order the stainless. - I do wish the handles were thicker. They feel a little too thin for my tastes. Been using gloves to compensate. - I imagine the 9 inch sleeves make the bar easier to maneuver, especially for us smaller guys. Consider this before ordering. Overall, the bar grew on me and I love it now. I initially got a pair of defective 16 handles, but Rogue quickly replaced them with a new pair. The bar is built like a tank - and the flexibility with the handle positioning allows you to tinker with it until it feels just right. I have straights on the outside, 16s in the middle and 20s inside, and love changing up my grip placement in between sets. Another great product by Rogue.

Some recommendations
This is a great bar. I just got it and was on the fence about some things prior to purchase. Here is what was on my mind and after it came how it resolved the issue. 1. Is the bar too wide to hold? Initially, yes. But, you get used to it and it is pretty solid. Just be sure to tighten down all handle screws as recommended by Rogue. the 9" sleeve will help to keep the bar feelign too wobbly in hand. 2. 9" or 15.5" sleeve? get the 9". you can use it as a trap bar, cambered squat bar, and carry it without the added weight at the end of the bar if the bar was longer. I am using it for walking lunches and it feels nice against back/ shoulders. It will be easier to maneuver. You will not use this bar for weight beyond 315 lb anyway. 3. stainless vs black matte. If you can afford it, it is worth it to get stainless. It will last longer for sure. If you get the matte steel, it will take a long time to manufacture. I orderd the stainless version and it came in 5 calendar days much to my surprise. 4. handles? get the 20 degree and straight/ neutral grip. The 16 degree does not add anything. Get stainless if you can. 5. Work with the bar to set it and forget it for the hand placement. 6. The Future? Wait for a fat grip, wait for inserts that will turn this into a trap bar or cambered bar at some point. The way they made this bar makes it really versatile. I rarely comment and will do so more often now. It was worth the cost, I will enjoy the bar. I will update for anything else later after I use the bar for a few weeks.
