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.

Second deadlift bar, great gift for the family

Great bar. Unanswered question

Bar is great. But I submitted a question via email and still haven't heard back


Ordered a tbd with zinc bar and chrome sleeves. Bar arrived inside of two weeks from placing order, way faster than I anticipated. And it arrived on deadlift day! Bar arrived flawless. Grip is perfect! Can really sink a hook grip. Whip definitely helps with floor speed and really started to help for me at around 550# and up. Customer service was great also! Could not be happier!

Incredible bar/quality

Best deadlift bar I've ever used. Ordered chrome sleeves with bare steel shaft. The 4 week shipping times are pretty accurate. The quality is outstanding and worth the wait. The chrome job on the sleeves is done to perfection and only a minor bump in cost. One less thing to clean. I opted not to order a shaft with coating, like black zinc, as I didn't want anything between the knurling and my hands. The knurling is very deep and aggressive. It has the deepest knurling of all my Texas bars. This is my third barbell from Buddy Capps and all have been phenomenal in terms of build, function, and quality control. I could not be happier with the deadlift bar. Buy with confidence.
