    It's not that simple a question, some 2 piece are stronger than some 4 piece and vice versa.
    What you need to look at is how thick the tubing is(thicker is stronger) whether it's butted(butted is stronger), and how sharp the radius of the bends are(sharper bends are weaker), and the material(41 thermal is stronger than regular cromo).

    I don't know for sure but I'd imagine something like the Scerbo bars and the odyssey butted 41 thermal bars would be strongest, closely followed by an S&M bar with the dual radius or one of the other butted bars.

    I'm running Macneil Tall light bars.
    They're silly light, but so far have held up great.

    Yeah, I think those are the lightest bars out there (for their width, otherwise they are tied with the 3 amigos)... but they are heat-treated so I'd imagine they could hold up pretty good.

    Added some information

    Fly bars = cutting your grips, and running the lever on the bend (thats stock, wait till you cut them...)

    Just get some S&M's or Fit Flows(i want a set..)
