Description Specs
The Original Texas Power Bar w/ Cerakote shaft and Chrome sleeves

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

We are still using the same USA steel mill we started with in 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.

5 of 5 Best bar, hands down. May 19, 2020
Reviewer: Alfredo Hickman from Newport Beach, CA United States  
I've been weight training for a long time and the Texas power bar is by far the best bar I've ever used. I got mine in Bazooka green cerakote (OD green for this veteran) and it is a beauty to behold and train with. I cannot recommend this bar enough. Get it and get after it.

5 of 5 Great Power Bar April 17, 2020
Reviewer: Joshua Somers from Austin, TX United States  
I've been wanting to build a home gym for a while and decided to take the leap. The cornerstone of any good home gym is a good power bar. And the Texas Power Bar did not disappoint. Great bar with great knurling. Seems indestructible. The bar arrived in just a few days too. Two thumbs-up.

Reviewer: Aidan Graham from Long Island , NY United States  
Gnurling is still what you would expect from a Texas Powerbar despite the Cerakote coating which is a huge plus. The shipping was also nice and fast.

5 of 5 Great Service/Even Better Bar April 15, 2020
Reviewer: Christopher M. from Conroe, TX United States  
It was a pleasure to order my power bar, from the very beginning Mitch was easy to contact and responded to my email immediately.  He let me know that the bar that I ordered would take a little longer to arrive and what was currently available, and then let me change the order to get a bar faster.  The shipping was fast and I had my Power Bar a couple days later.

The bar is fantastic.  I have a few Rogue Bars and this is made with the same quality control and strength as those.  I love the look of the cerakote blue finish and the knurling is phenomenal.  I have had the bar loaded with over 600 pounds without a single issue, and would not question moving more weight with it.

Love the bar, can't wait to buy a Texas Squat Bar once I have the money.
