Great bar. Nice, aggressive knurl.
When it came time to outfit our new gym with bars it was really an easy choice. These bars are second to none. Absolutely amazing.
I've used a rogue Ohio bar in the gym and to me this is a much better bar. It a good all around bar with great knurling. Love it. It was ordered on a friday and shipped to my door by sunday.
Got first workout in with my new TPB. Hit some deadlifts and rows with it, and was very impressed. The black zinc and chrome looks great. The knurling has a great feel to it, even with the zinc coating.
I’ve been lifting in a home gym with an original Ohio Bar for the last 5 years. I wanted something with center knurl for squats. I recently competed with a federation that uses only Texas Bars and realized what I was missing.
The TPB feels similar in whip to my Ohio bar. Maybe a tad more whip, since the collars put the weight further out on the sleeve. Not a problem for me, but something to keep in mind. If you want ultra-stiff, probably should look at the squat or bench bar.
I think my other bar will gather dust now that I have a Texas power bar. Its a legend for a reason. Perfect all-around power bar in my opinion.
