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.

The Best Overall

Everything about this barbell is amazing, the knurling is sharp which feels really good and secure. I love the vintage look and feel of this barbell and the PRICE. This is the most important piece of equipment you can purchase for lifting and this one is the best value. I was using an Ohio deadlift bar but then my gym got a Texas deadlift bar and it’s night and day difference. I’m starting to buy equipment for my garage and the Texas deadlift bar will be my next barbell.

Classic bar for a reason

I ordered the tungsten cerakote power bar. Order and received in 5 days to Canada. Bar is awesome. The knurling for me, is perfect. Good and aggressive, but won't rip your hand open. The finish is awesome and looks really sharp. I have an Ohio Power Bar as well, which I love and still use, but the Texas is just better. Finish is nicer, knurling is nicer, overall just something about it... Just better.
