Jul 12, 2016 Buying a new TPB but not sure if I should go through/purchase: Texas strength systems Elite FTS Rogue Ohio bar weightlifters warehouse The "supposed" real Buddy caps TPB Troy TPB I'm leaning towards texas strength systems as I've bought from them before. To be frank, I won't have more than 600lbs on this at any given time in the next 2 years so I'm not worried if it can truly hold 1500lbs. I like a nice bite with the knurling and I'll be squatting and pulling with this bar until I grab a DL bar in the winter. Not concerned if there's a 20-30 dollar difference between either. I'm looking for quality without passive knurling. Thanks in advance for your replies.
