Buddy Capps | The "Original" Texas Power Bar - Cerakote Edition

Product Description

Back in the 1960’s, Buddy Capps noticed that there was hardly any grip on barbells. The knurling on these bars was so light when the bars were new, after years of use 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 the production facility, they are machine and then knurled 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 chrome plated only in Canada to prevent rusting in the Canadian climate.

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 with The Texas Power Bar.
