The knurling is phenomenal, and was the main factor in why I bought a Texas Power Barbell over a Rogue Ohio Barbell. I know that I'll be putting this barbell through the gauntlet, and initial indications are that this bar will withstand all that I load it with.
Oh, and I cannot forget how pristine this barbell looks. Definitely has the "wow" factor.
I purchased the Texas Power Bar about a month ago and it’s by far the best I ever used. I have been lifting for over thirty years both body building and power lifting. I really like the aggressive knurling works perfect for deadlifts, barbell shrugs, and rows. The center knurling works greatly for squats. If you’re looking for a quality bar that’s not going to bankrupt you this is it.
I’m only buying Texas Power Bars from now on. The Cerakote finish looks and feels amazing.
The best bar on the planet!
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.
