Texas Power Bars
Where It All Started...
When Buddy started lifting weights with Olympic bars back in the 1960’s, he noticed that there was hardly any grip. The knurling on the bars was so light when the bars were new, years later they became 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 "Original" Texas Power Bar
The Goal was to create a bar that would have & 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
The Best Grip In The Industy
Proudly Made In The US 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.
