Since 1980, Buddy Capps of Irving, TX, has been manufacturing the Texas Power Bar which has become the most popular all-purpose powerlifting bar in the USA for both training and competition. The Texas Power Bar was followed several years later with the 7-1/2' Texas Deadlift Bar and shortly thereafter the 8' Texas Squat Bar was introduced.
Buddy Capps is a former Texas State Powerlifting Champion. His design of the Texas Power Bar was influenced by such notable Texas powerlifters as Doug and Clay Patterson.
The 7-1/2' Texas Deadlift Bar was the result of an idea brought to Buddy by the legendary Chip McCain. The Texas Deadlift Bar is used by the majority of powerlifting organizations in the USA and is regarded as the bar to deadlift with worldwide. The 8' Texas Squat Bar is favored by powerlifters who are tall or powerlifters who have shoulder problems.
Don't accept a substitute. Look for the State of Texas decal on the end of each Texas Power Bar, Texas Deadlift Bar, and Texas Squat Bar.
