Note: Yep, these are the
real thing, we get them directly from Buddy Capps Welding, these are not cheap
copies, imports or anything like that. Check our feedback, we would not
mess around with any shenanigans.
The knurling is a
very consistent and crisp machine pressed knurling, slowly feed so it is course
depth and medium course texture with 14 points per inch.
Texas Power Bar by Buddy Capps Welding 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.
Don't accept a substitute. Look
for the State of Texas outline on the end of each Texas Power Bar, Texas
Deadlift Bar, and Texas Squat Bar.
Capps Welding uses Black
Zinc Plated bars.
This is not the cheaper black oxide that only
darkens the steel but give no corrosion resistance.
Black Zinc Plating is a 2 step process.
First step involves applying a thin coating
of zinc to surface of the bar to guard against corrosion. Zinc offers excellent
corrosion resistance because it is more easily oxidized by the atmosphere.
Oxidation occurs when metal is exposed to air or water, and electrons from the
metal transfer to the oxygen. When zinc is tightly bonded to steel, the zinc
frees up its electrons more readily than the steel, leaving the stronger metal
beneath intact. The application of the zinc coating is accomplished by dipping the
steel into molten zinc or by electrolytic plating of the steel with zinc, much
like chrome plating. The electrolytic
process gives the metal parts an aesthetically pleasing appearance, as well as
The second step is a smooth black chromate
conversion that give the bar that black look.
Capps Welding bars sleeves can not fall
Collars are welded to sleeves and the
assembly is roll pinned onto the bar so they can never loosen or fall of.
Capps Welding bars have Oil Impregnated
bearings need no lubrication
The bearings on the collar/sleeve assembly
are oil impregnated and never need lubrication.
Built for a lifetime of hard use.
