The Strengthshop Bastard Power Bar is without a doubt one of the best powerlifting barbells currently available on the market.
The barbell comes with an impressive black chrome shaft and features extreme knurling, which provides even more grip than the traditional Texas power bars. The knurling will provide lifters with the best hold possible both in your hands and on your shoulders for deadlifts and squats. Finely grooved barbell sleeves will ensure that your weight plates stay in place. Furthermore, the updated chrome coating not only provides a sleek finish, but also gives the bar even more wear resistance than a traditional zinc coating.
Since the bar is relatively stiff, we would recommend using primarily for static lifts.
