No center knurl

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.

Best deadlift bar on the market #fuckkabuki

Still the best bar out there. don’t be impulsive and go the rogue route, knurling whip & build quality is far superior on Texas deadlift bars plus the cerakote color options making it more customizable. Well worth the weight/price. -from a real 700+ pound deadlifter.

Bar is great, but…

I put it on my horizontal barbell rack and it immediately scratched the finish on both ends of the bar. Needless to say I was very disappointed. But, I suppose it is my own fault…oh well. It is a metal rack, but, I just didn’t expect it would scratch that easily. I’ve had that rack for years and have stored mostly bare steel bars and some enameled bars…but, obviously, I hadn’t completed my homework assignment well enough.

Texas Deadlift Bar!!!

I’ve had a few weeks with my Red Cerakote deadlift bar now, and I love it!

The whip, the knurl, the chrome sleeves…everything is perfect! 100% would buy another bar from Texas Power (if my wife will let me)

Best deadlift bar I’ve ever used but…

Deadlift bar is amazing, great feel and whip. Worst customer service in the world. Just wanted someone to tell me the status of my order but got ghosted for weeks. I know they are busy but any reply would be nice after you spend almost 500
Bottom line… buy the bar for the quality but understand everything else

Best DL bar

Just received it a few weeks ago. Arrived in excellent condition. Already have pulled an all time PR conventional deadlift for me. The bar is very nice and aggressive even with a cerakote finish. I Highly recommend this bar!
