When I started lifting weights with Olympic bars back in the 1960’s, I noticed that there was hardly any grip. The knurling on these bars was so light when the bars were new, that now years later they were almost slick. The sleeves were held on to the bar with a threaded end cap and the inside collars were held in place with a set screw. Each sleeve consisted of three pieces.

The Goal
was to create a bar that would have and keep a better knurled grip. A bar, whose sleeves wouldn’t slide in to the center. A maintenance free bar.

The Result - The Texas Power Bar

Proudly Made in the USA Since 1980. The shafts are center less ground, demagnetized and oiled to the max before shipping to Texas. Once at our production facility, we machine and then knurl each shaft to create a grip that is still the best in the industry. Texas Power Bars have different finishes available including black zinc and chrome plating.The sleeves are are available raw or chrome plated.

Big tensile strength numbers sound very impressive and we have them but, the proof is on the platform. Hundreds of state, national, international and world powerlifting records have been and continue to be set and broken on the The Texas Power Bar.

Great product, great service.

First time investing in a barbell, and if I do it again, I will choose Texas!!
I live in Japan and received my deadlift bar in less than five days. The quality of the knurling was beyond my expectation; perfect.
I invested plenty of time studying which manufacturer to go with; I researched all the competitors. In the end, Texas Power Bars was the solid decision.

Brian Stoner
The gold standard

This isn't my first (or last) rodeo, as I have 3 other Texas power bars. The cerakote Texas deadlift bar is as good as it gets. Had some reservations about how the coating would affect the grip, but very pleased that I do not feel any difference between the cerakote and black zinc bars. 10/10.

Travis Ross
Gold Standard of Deadlift Bars...

This thing is a work of art!

Ordered the black Cerakote and was a bit concerned that the coating might get in the way of the nice, aggressive knurling. Not only does it look beautiful, but it feels great! Grippy as a wild beast!

Also ordered the TPB in white Cerakote on the same day as the Deadlift Bar, and these two pieces are the most prized possessions at the home gym. Ordered on a Wednesday; they arrived on my doorstep in Houston that Friday. Highly recommend!

Tyler Chelston
The best deadlift bar

The grip, whip, and color are 5/5. Just buy the damn bar already.

Great Bar...Crappy Over-Priced Coating

I recently received my new red cerakote finished Deadlift bar. While removing the packaging, I placed the bar up on my rack's spotting pins to get the cardboard tubing removed. During this process, I gently slid the unloaded bar across across a smooth stainless steel spotting pin. Once I got the bar on the floor and loaded some plates on it, I noticed a long scar in the cerakote where I had maneuvered the bar on the pins. It was peeled down to the bear steel underneath. Zero durability whatsoever. I might be ok with some scuffing, but it completely peeled away. I'm very disappointed that I spent extra for what is supposed to be a premium coating. Outside of that, the bar is great. Great knurl, whip and smooth bearings...just with a nice scar in my new red coating.
