Texas power barbell review by Jeremy Frey
“As a strength coach I prefer the Buddy Capps Texas Power Bar for its versatility, grip and strength. It is a great bar for not only benching, but for squats (all varieties), deadlifts (all varieties) and pretty much any movement I need my athletes to perform with a barbell, even Olympic movements.
Now, with the new collars and black coating rust isn’t even an issue. For Powerlifting, it’s the bar I use for all movements including bench (all varieties), deadlifts, rows, etc. I even used it for squatting when I didn’t have the access to a Texas Squat Bar. I used weights over 900 pounds without any whipping or issues. Best overall universal bar you can own!!” –Jeremy Frey

“These are a staple of any serious weight room. There are a couple of things you should never skimp on when building your weight room, and the bar that you hold in your hands, over your face/head and on your back is one of them. The Buddy Capps Texas Power Bars are built to last and built for lifting weights. If you don’t have these bars, get them now.” –Jim Wendler
We like the Rehband 7751 Rx Knee Support as it it a fair price at $35 and they wear really well even after a ton of abuse.
I like them as they are easy to clean as i throw them in a bucket with some warm water and soap and it cleans up all the chalk and sweat and gym gunk. We just picked up another pair for our guys at the gym.
Rogue Bar Review by Seth
Quality 5 out of 5
I have a pair of Rogue Bars and a York Oly bar for my garage gym. I love my York bar, but it hasn’t gotten much use since receiving my Rogue Bars. Rogue vs York is a tough choice. The knurling is very aggressive and takes a few days to get used to if you haven’t had good, aggressive bars to use. The bar holds chalk well, but I haven’t had to use as much because the knurling is so grippy as it is. You can’t beat this barbell for the price.
Texas power bar review by Zane Geeting
“The Texas Power Bar is superior to other bars in that it is stiffer and holds up to heavy loads better than any other bar available. We have one in our gym that is over five years old. It has held up to over 800 pound benches week in and week out. The Buddy Capps Texas Power Bar is still straight as an arrow and the knurling is still great. It’s a top-notch bar that puts up to abuse and stands the test of time.” –Zane Geeting
