As I'm on my third handlebar, I figured out that the shape/configuration of the bar is more important than what you wrap it with. Switching from a 44cm compact to a 44cm ergo w/ oval top section made all the difference. I had double-wrap on the flats and drops on my compact, and it still wasn't as comfortable-- even though the reach and drop are virtually the same between the two bars. I overcome some of the banana-hands issue with gloves-- makes it easier to grab a bar made for someone with "normal" hands.
