Quick Overview

The orginal and best Texas Power Bar by Buddy Capps (Capps Engineering, Texas). Features a 28.5mm black oxide covered shaft with deep knurling and powerlifting rings.

Suitable for use with olympic (2"/ 50mm) weight plates and collars. Sold separately.



The original Texas Power Bar (TPB) dates back to 1980. The modern-day version isn't as prone to rust, but it's still quite crude in appearance. So much so, I've been in gyms where people have been bench pressing, squatting and deadlifting on cheap import bars only to find a TPB led there in the corner. Their loss is my gain; the Texas Power Bar is built for function, not looks. Check out my original review some 5 years ago on the Gym Professor free-online-resource here:

The Texas Power Bar is still probably the best value for quality bar in the US. It's still a great buy for a bar in the UK, but we recommend that you also check out the ATX Ram Bar that we offer.
