Aero bars

Hey guys, I'm looking into aero bars for longer rides and I don't know which ones to get. What do you guys recommend? I'll be planting them on bullhorns. I'm looking for comfort and reliability. I don't have too much to spend. Under 150$ for sure.

I use profile design split second. Added a rear brake splurged and a brake lever to the right hand aero bar.
It's great for long or windy rides.

When I toured on a DF, I wouldn't leave home without my Profile Design Airstykes. The spring loaded pads allowed access to the interrupter or cyclocross style brake levers. Bar ends conveniently available.
