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.

Awesome bar!

I bought the Deadlift bar and really have been impressed. The knurl is great, sticks to my hands and for my pulls I like the 27mm shaft, it feels like I have more control. You have to pull the slack from the bar to get the full affect but once you get that down it’s truly an amazing bar! Very happy with my purchase

Best deadlift bar out there

Ryan R Busk
Best Upgrade I could have made

I wish I had understood how great a bar like this could be. As I have increased weight, I have been struggling for months with a bar that is too big and lacked the knurling necessary for me to get a good grip. Enter my new deadlift bar from Texas Power Bars...powerlifting life changed! I instantly lifted the weight I had been struggling with for 3 weeks, and have increased weight steadily over the last 3 weeks! The Knurling is aggressive and gives you an amazing connection to the bar that doesn't require superman level grip strength and allows the posterior chain to do the heavy lifting (pun intended). Don't be like me, buy this bar immediately. Yes, its expensive, but you really do need it if you want to deadlift heavy weights!

Outstanding product and company

This bar is amazing. Perfect amount of whip. No dings or scratches on the bar, everything looks perfect. Everything was delivered within just a few days from ordering also. Customer Service has been perfect also. Unfortunately my deadlift did not immediately go from 600 lb to 1000 lb by just changing to a DL bar, so have some work to do! Would definitely recommend!
