Recently built up a garage gym and the Texas All American Bar fit my requirements in a bar. Center knurl-CHECK, Affordable-CHECK, moderate to aggressive knurling-CHECK. Overall, I highly recommend the All American Bar. Purchased mine in the bare steel configuration and it is holding up much better than other bare steel bars I have used in the past.
I’ll be honest when I tell you I don’t really know much about barbells seeing as I’m an overweight geriatric millennial. But this bar is pretty nice and it has the state of Texas on the end cap so that’s good enough for me. Knurling is not sandpaper levels of aggressive which I appreciate. Good bar to pick up if you’re a newbie like me I would say.
I ordered this bar on 10/14/21 and received on 10/18/21. super fast shipping. The AAB is of superb quality. I also own the Texas power bar; the knurling on the AAB is a tad less aggressive. Id say its perfect. even with cerakote finish the bar is sharp enough that you're able too get a secure grip on the bar but not overly sharp where it will tear your hands up. I definitely Recommend this bar
Ordered on Monday received in Ohio on Thursday. Are you looking for knurling less aggressive than OPB but more aggressive than Rogue bars? I was and found it in the All American bar AND it has a center knurl. If you are not specializing in PL or OL this is the all around bar for you. Very happy.
Shipped & packed superbly!
Great durable bar! Made in USA!! Yay!!
