Excellent bar. Beautifully made. Works great for all barbell exercises. Good compromise on knurling for the best all-purpose bar.
Best bar on the market
Not just some off the shelf bar, it's really cool to know that this bar was made in the USA by hand for me. If you want quality it is worth the wait. Just got it today and put it straight to use, great all around bar. Thank you Texas Power Bar!
It took a few extra weeks than expected but it was definitely worth it! The moment I unpackaged it this bar became my favorite. I’ve had several other bars from other manufacturers and this one is superior . The knurling is perfect, it’s more aggressive than most but not to the point where it rips your hands up with heavy pulls. The sleeves are shorter than normal so if you lift consistently over 405 I recommend getting competition or thin iron plates. Other than that I’m extremely satisfied with this bar, it’s great for clean, snatch, deadlift, bench, squat just as advertised!
The knurling is perfect. Itâ€™s deep and heavy, and digs right into my grip. But it somehow still doesnâ€™t cut me up (my hands anyway; deadlifts will leave some marks on my shins).
