Original Texas Power Bar By Buddy Capps - Now with Chrome Coated Sleeves
Product Review (submitted on February 23, 2016):
Best purchase ever - upgraded from a basic York bar that hand little or no knurling, so always used chalk. I've never had to do this with the Texas.
Use this for Squats, Deads and Bench. Hands do get roughed up now and then, but the aggressive knurling helped you dig deeper for rep.
Deadlift version of this bar is longer and has more whip. This is pretty solid and though had a bend under load, returns true every time.
Totally worth it and holds its value - I've seen used ones sell for close to new price from Strength Shop. Best price on market.
Only negative was UPS delivered and tube was ripped open. But bar okay, just unlucky with courier.
