Default Barbells

Guy's i have a question on selecting a barbell. I am looking at a few from Rogue and am tossing up between the Rogue bar, B&R bar and the Pendlay HD NexGen bar. I am not liking the B&R bar as i live in a very humid area and everything rust like crazy, so i thought a bar with a coating on it might be a better option. The bar usage will basically be CF type training with more o-lifts than usual. Any feedback on any of the bars would be appreciated.

The Rogue training bar has a decent feel. Have been using it for about a year now and have no substantive complaints. The chrome plating on the collars on the bar I've been using is a little brittle, though, and has been flaking off. If rust is an issue in your climate, that might be less than ideal. Am looking at the Pendlay NexGen needle bearing bar, myself, but don't know when that's going to be available. The dates for availability keep getting pushed back.
