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.

Insane Bar

Worth every penny. By far better than any other gym bar out there.

Outstanding Bar

I ordered this bar in early November and got it in three weeks. The quality of the bar and coating exceeding my expectations (which were high for this legendary bar). I got it in bazooka green and it’s beautiful.

It is the Legendary Texas Power Bar - None Better

This is a Power Bar that you earn the right to use.. These weights aren't going to lift themselves; with a Texas Power Bar you absolutely command those weight to move and they have no choice but to obey. I personally order a red and blue power bar. They came within a week to ordering it with absolutely no delays. What's meant to be is meant to be.

100% worth the wait

The shipping estimate said 8 weeks, my bar showed up after 12. I read other reviews online and waited patiently knowing my bar would arrive eventually. If you are in a massive hurry and you need a barbell ASAP this might not be the way to go, but if you're willing to wait, the end result will be the best powerlifting bar you'll ever get your hands on. Phenomenal finish and quality, the cerakote is excellent, knurl is just right, the chrome sleeves are immaculate, the sleeve spin is pure and frictionless, overall one of the most gorgeous and functional barbells I've ever seen. You're gonna need to wait a while for it to show up, but my goodness when it arrives it will not disappoint. After a few years of using Rogue bars I gotta say I've been converted.

Fantastic Bar

I've used/loved Texas Power Bars in various powerlifting gyms, but never knew there was going to be a cerakote option in the future. The cerakote does take a little of the classic TPB knurling bite off, but it's definitely still there and deeper than any other bars I've tried. The plus side is that because of the cerakote filling in the deepest part of the knurl, you don't really need to brush chalk out like you would on the raw TPB.

I haven't had this bar for very long yet, so we'll see if the cerakote application holds up over time, but it's been fine on UHMW cups for the past few weeks of heavy lifts.
I was born and raised in TX myself, so having the option of getting my bar in bluebonnet blue is a dream come true. Thanks Buddy. :)
