Profile T2 aerobars? (vs Jammer & Oval Slam)

Does anybody have the T2 bars and use them on their road bike without a setforward post? Are you able to comfortably fit with a 90 degree arm bend?

I was hunting around local shops for the Slam or Jammer and stumbled onto the T2 which lets you adjust the forward/backward position of the entire aerobar extension and also the position of the armrest. Isn't this the same thing as the entire marketing used behind the Jammer or Slam bars? I'm thinking of picking up a T2 if consensus is that these would be as suitable for use as the other mentioned bars.

I have these same bars, they are really adjustable, especially front to back. I don't know anthing about the others you mentioned, but I like the T2s.

I have them as well and really like being able to adjust the "little things" to get my position dialed so I can find the point where handling and aerodynamics meet. +1 for the T2's here, oh and they're cheaper than the carbon version at little weight penalty

Thanks for the comments guys =). Do any of you happen to have photos of the setup on your bikes? I'm wondering how much those bars will end up sticking out the back since they're longer(?) than the supposedly shorter jammer and slam bars.

I also found this (pic below) earlier. It's the T2+ but with shorter bars to specifically address the issue I mentioned above. It does prove that the T2+ is adjustable enough for use on road bikes =)

I have those on my tt bike. If I'm not carefull, I'll hit my knee on the extensions when out of the saddle. I try to stay in the saddle is possible, but for starts is mostly where I have to make sure I don't hit them.
