There are deadlift bars and then there are Texas Deadlift Bars.

Many companies sell deadlift bars these days, but few can withstand the test of time and heavy use like Texas Deadlift Bars by Buddy Capps.

The first Texas Power Bars were made in 1980 by Buddy Capps - Texas powerlifter, expert machinist and innovator.

Buddy forever changed powerlifting with his special steel formula and revolutionary sleeve design, and his bars have been used ever since by thousands of powerlifters and powerlifting competitions worldwide. Texas bar owners can be proud to be a part of the long lineage of this classic backbone of the sport.

The Texas Deadlift Bar was one of the first, and arguably still is the best deadlift bar.

Texas Deadlift Bars are the Official Competition Bars of the Global Powerlifting Alliance (GPA) and the International Powerlifting Organization (IPO) and used in many other federations.


Please see our barbell terms and conditions. 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.

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. Review by Allen / (Posted on 11/24/2017)
