I consider the squat bar a must have
I'm not a large human (5'11", 175lbs), and don't lift heavy weights. However, it still feels great on my back, definitely noticed less pressure from the first time that I used it. Cerakote is awesome for a non a/c garage in south Georgia. The width is very helpful, as I can widen the squat stands and don't have to worry about pinching my pinky fingers. 10/10 would recommend!
I bought the squat, bench and deadlift bars all in cerakote. The finish is amazing and came with no blemishes. It has held up to heavy use. I have a family of 6 and we lift together as well as friends and neighbors that come over. The knurling is aggressive and great for grip in the hands and on the back. Best bars that I have purchased of the 12 that I have.
I would love this bar truly amazing. Love the quality and texture.
The Texas Squat Bar is excellent quality, but that has been the case with every Buddy Capps product I have used.
