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.

Put in Work

Just because they considered it damaged goods doesn’t mean the bar isn’t a work of art. Quit the excuses slap some iron on the bar and go to work!!!

10/10 would buy again and recommend

Honestly couldn't even find any noticeable blemishes. Love this option for discounted bars! Couldn't be happier with it.

An absolute steal

I can't find any functional issues with the bar, and the only cosmetic issue is very minor. Very happy with it.

What Blemishes?

I have been wanting a power bar for my home gym that is the same as the bars used in competitions. I took advantage of the Black Friday sale on Blemish bars and am so pleasantly surprised. I don't even know how this could be considered blemished. Good knurling, nice coating, excellent bar! PS, shipping was faster than Amazon!

Perfect power lifters bar.

Someone left one of these at my commercial gym and I used it to hit a new max on the bench. I love the super aggressive knurl, it gives me a great grip. I just ordered my own for home at love it. Can't tell that this one is even blemished, honestly. The black oxide looks better than I thought. I'll keep it oiled and clean so it stays looking this good.
