heres some bars i was thinking about getting

Demolition El Dorado
shadow 11 B
Macneil Silence Tall
United Squad
United Trinity
Odyssey Civilian svelte
WTP Helium (high)
SuperStar Sweet Sweeps
Animal Bob Light (unsure on these cuz they're heavier and only 8 back sweep)

which do you think i should go with? I know the wtp heliums are great, but they all seem damn good. so i think hearing others opinions might help me on deciding on a new pair of bars.

i already own wtp heliums cut to 23.5 inches. i bought them used and were told they were the high rise (7.9), and i never meseaure them. i just knew they were taller then my previous bars + more sweep and i liked the feel. but now i come to find out that they are the low rise (7.25) since i tried my friends 8 inch rise bars and there is big difference. also i think the previous owner of my bars cut them to short for my likings. so yeah i want something a bit taller and a little bit wider

SuperS*** Sweet Sweep Bars
7.85" rise
13 degs back
4 degs up
25.5"

Made from multibutted, heat treated 4130, 630grms, or 1.4lbs approx, ie light!!

T'would appear that these fit the bill nicely.

it doesnt take long to cut the bars with a hacksaw maybe 10 min. aslong as u can get ur brakes over the bend. or maybe u dont even run brakes in which case it wouldnt matter. but if not then metal dirty/dirty, and if those are to heavy for ya the premium superlite.
