There are power bars and then there are Texas Power Bars.

Many companies sell power bars these days, but few can withstand the test of time and heavy use like the Texas Power Bar 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 Power Bar was the first, and arguably still is the best power bar.
