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 bars on the planet!

Wow is all I can say! The Texas deadlift bars are phenomenal! Incredibly built super comfortable and just the right amount of flex to crush new PR‘s!

It’s good

I have smaller hands so I picked this bar because of its thinner diameter. I can snatch grip this bar far more efficiently as a result and the knurling is good

Texas DL Bar

Packaging was amazing - no damage to bar during delivery. Arrived in two weeks of ordering. Just in time for me to finish out my meet prep. The bar feels great in my hands, no aggressive bite, which allows me to get more reps in. Would definitely order again.

Crazy Whip & Tough Knurling

Bought a Texas DL bar since that's the one I compete with, knurling is going to condition my hands for sure! Have only loaded it up with a little over 500 lbs. and already getting some nice whip.
