Hey all, my question is this. What are you guys around 5'7 to 5'10 ft. tall running for bars that don't like the pro tapers? Or did they change the bend from 06 because I did not like them at all. Just curious to see what feels comfortable, I know everybody's different. Thanks!:thumbsup:

I'm 5'10", and I'm running Pro Taper Henry/Reed bends. The '07 bars are said to have been 4mm high than the '06 were, but the '06 were very low, and had very little pullback.

I heard that the 08 bars were taller yet than both the 06 and 07 bars. They feel very similar to cr hi bend bars to me.
