help ID'ing this barbell - 'HD' on end cap

Picked up this 20kg barbell off CL for $50 (decent price for a beater bar). The guy said it was a Rogue bar but I checked with Rogue and they confirmed it wasn't one of theirs. The letters 'HD' on the end caps are the only discernible markings I can find.
