Rotundo hooks compare with Deda Shallow

How do the hooks compare on these two bars? Is there a noticeable difference? I have the Newtons was looking for something a little rounder in the hooks. I tried Deda Deeps and they are great just a little too deep and long for me. I also tried ProVibe rounds. These are real nice just a hair short on the tops.

I just picked up a set of Rotundos off Craigslist cheap so looks like I will solve my problem, or atleast answer it myself....

This.

Whether it's your race bike or not, bars are personal preference just like saddles. This has nothing to do with racing. Normally, I'd move it to the 41 but since you already have a post about this there...
