Help w/ handlebar search

I'm building up a new bike and need a set of handlebars.

I'm looking for:
Aluminum
Deep Drop (145mm or more)

I prefer ergo bend and I like flat tops, but neither are deal breakers. I'm a heavier guy for a racer (175lb), but I'm not really a sprinter. I'm not insane, but I will look at much they weigh.

Right now I know of the ritchey comp streem and easton EA70 Aero (both heavy) and deda newton anatomic (leaning toward).

Any other suggestions?

Thanks.
B

FSA energy new ergo. What I'm currently running on all my race bikes - great & cheap. The styling is modern-ish with classic bends, but not completely round... they work fantastically.
Pro Vibe 7s Round - seem to really nice bars, but a little tough to find... I'm still trying to find a pair to hold/feel. They are a little more straight and long in the tops (so more modern that way), and with the way the curve looks, it would be super comfortable.

Deda Newton Deep and Ritchey Logic II are close to what you are looking for.

caveat with the logic II is that the drop is width dependent. 132mm on a 42cm, 143 on a 44cm. FSA makes some deep drops (FSA Energy Traditional comes to mind), and they probably have some in ergo (eww) bends.

I really liked the PRO Vibe 7s round bars but they don't provide the deep drop he's looking for; they do provide the flat transition from the tops to the hoods though, and the round bend felt nice on my hands.

okay - I was thinking they were 145 or so... my bad.
Sounds like I'm less interested now.

I don't remember the drop exactly but it was more in the realm of the low 130s.
