The Texas Bar is one of the best there is and unlike generic/cheaper bars, is built to last. The Texas Power Bar was developed by Buddy Capps (a Texas powerlifter, expert machinist and innovator) more than 30 years ago and has since become the standard in powerlifting.


Previously these bars were sold with bare steel sleeves. Bars sold from 14th April 2020 now feature chrome coated sleeves to help prevent rust.

This bar is 20kg in weight with sharp deep knurling. This bar also does not have center knurling and is rated at 186,000psi. This bar is great for adding extra kg's to your dead lift.

Manufactured by Capps Welding, and coated with zinc oxide which means they're not slippy and weakened (which it is believed the process of chroming does), but they are not prone to rust like the standard 'unfinished' Texas bars.

Best on the market

Hands down best deadlift bar on the market, beats rogue and other bars I have tried. The amount of slack you can pull out is the best part.

Wish I’d got one earlier

Phenomenal bar, Iv always wanted one but could never justify the price as well as already having another premium brand cerakote coated power bar..... After wanting to crack and buy a dedicated deadlift bar this was a justified and fantastic purchase, the look, finish, feel of the bar and knurling is not comparable to other bars and that initial brace to get the bar off the floor feels unrivalled with the extra whip, such a great bar. Fantastic service from strengthshop as always too.

Best Bar Can't Fault it

Ok so this bar is the best deadlift bar I just wish it was raw steel as that's the best version. However I did purchase this version for my home. This is the best deadlift bar it's way better than the rogue which I have used.

the best investment you will ever make for deadlifts.

I'm going to keep this short; simply put this will be the only bar I pull from until the day the good lord takes me away. Words cannot describe truthfully the feeling of pulling with this bar; it would be like trying to explain color to a blind man.
