I was looking for something a little different and the Texas Bodybuilding bar knocked it out of the park. It is perfect for narrow grip bench press, RDLs, barbell curls, bent over rows, and I have even used it to deadlift. The knurling is perfect and love the 3 different width marks.
This is my first TPB and it won't be my last. Shipping was fast as well.
Fun bar to use!
Never got my bar yet but I believe it will be great.
Was a bit skeptical but I love it, great all around bar with good whip, I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants a softer bar compared to the power bar it’s a bit more fun to use and I love it.
Absolutely love this bar and love the non-traditional knurl marks for narrow, neutral, and wide grip to work different muscle groups. The closest knurl marks to center are powerlifting standard (I believe) and get progressively wider from there
I bought this in bare steel with chrome sleeves when I was expanding my home gym. The 27mm diameter bar caught my interest as I prefer a narrower bar for certain lifts. This bar had great reviews so I bought it. This bar has a great knurl that’s tacky but not too aggressive. I love using this bar for close grip bench, front squats, barbell curls, and bent over rows. The three knurl marks are great for setting hand placement on accessory lifts where I place my grip closer to the center. I recommend this bar if you are buying your first bar for your home gym as well as anyone looking to add a bar to their collection that can be used for accessory lifts.
Solid all purpose bar with a design that makes it unique. Bonus points from me because it’s made in the South.
