I'm thinking of changing to the original Pro Taper Henry/Reed bend or the Windham MX bend. I'm just not sure what the stock bend is, so I don't know what the dimensions are to help determine which of these two I should go with. I would appreciate any help or opinions.

I am not sure what they call them. They should name the "LOWRIDERS" :ride:

I am 6'1" and love the Windham bend...they are very popular.

...which of these two I should go with.

Henry/Reed has a bit more pullback than stock. So if you want a higher bar with about the same pullback as stock you should go Windham.

The stock bend is very nearly identical to what Pro Taper calls the "YZ High". Tag calls the same bend simply the "YZ"
