For bars. I think you should get the S&M Slam XLT's. Those look sick. I wanna get a pair of them.

haha did you look at the solids? (second link)

and what about the T-1's? cause ive never seen those before, but theyre the right measurements and theyre cheaper than almost every other pair of bars that ive seen in that size.

well they look alright. and so long as theyre the right size, then bars are generally bars. and these are the right size for cheaper than like anything on dans.

Then go for them. Dan's Comp you can get free shipping, so it may be a better price for the slams.

The Solid bars are monsterous. They're freakin' huge. But bars are pretty much bars except for Eastern. And aluminum ones. I like Shadow bars.

i think i wanna get the T-1's. and i just saw the solids and thought that they looked insane. theres no reason that anyone needs bars that big, but i thought it would be funny.

Maybe it wasn't a T1, did he buy it second hand?

Slams aren't the only bars out there. They may be the best, but not the only.
