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.

Original power bar

Gym(s) owner and been in the game since 1993. Purchased this bar for our Invictus competition bench. We now have all Texas bars and won’t go back. Best built bars for each specific lift period.

Still the best

The bar arrived in less than 5 days from when I ordered it which blew me away especially since I've waited for months from Kabuki. The bar had no imperfections, and looks very premium from the paint to the chrome sleeves. 1 of the reasons that I ordered it was for a more aggressive knurling, and it exceeded my expectations. 1 of the reasons that I waited so long to buy this bar was because of it being 28.5 instead of 29. With the knurling the way it is it doesn't feel any different than a 29mm bar. This will be my daily driver for bench, and rotated in frequently for deadlifts. For squatting I prefer a more passive center knurl. I would recommend this bar to anyone who's looking for a premium aggressively knurled power bar that looks great with a pedigree. It has already become 1 of my favorite bars that I own. My only regret is that I didn't order it sooner. I hope Buddy never changes a thing about this barbell.
