Advise on Handlebars?

1.) Are the stock bars really that weak? I didn't lay it down that hard, but maybe I just caught it just right.
2.) Is it possible that it's not the bars that bent, but the tripple clamp twisted? I know the bars don't stear straight, but they don't really look bent. Maybe just an optical illusion.
3.) I know... check the archives... I did. Just wanted to know if anyone has any more advice on how to pick bars that are right for you. I'm 6'0 180 and ride trails all the time.

by the way, pro tapers and TAG bars really kick ass.

I recently purchaced a set of Renthal Fat bars and a set of universal mounts. Best purchase I have ever made. As my name implies I sometimes spend time taking soil samples in the wierdest of places. I bent more bars than a roll cage manufacturer....But not anymore....These Renthals flex under pressure and return to their shape and position when the pressure is removed. I do quite a bit of jumping and I love the flex on a hard landing...much better on the wrists and forearms.

I actually found out that the factory bars weren't bent after all. The tripple clamp had moved, so the bars were sideways a bit. I followed the books procedure for reinstallation and everything is straight again. I guess the assembly wasn't tight enough...
