sorry dude, not playing to goof on you. Just felt like making a joke.

As for the original question, from what I have heard (im not a stunter, and cant stunt for chit) but its all about personal preference. If it were me, Id get DB bars. They seem much sturdier if you're doing high-chairs and stuff like that.

you should have NOT made this a private poll so you can see who voted on what. i'm sure out of the 10 votes you have received on your poll, 5 or more came from unreliable voters.

i'll give you the votes that matter. people that know whats up.

DB bars
Clayton, Mike L(just converted), Buffalorider,

Aftermarket Clip ons
Prodigy, Jordo, EAC, Sonny Dee, Andrew, Garrett, F4iguy, Del, Mike Jones, Shawn

and anyone that wants to fill in some of the corpus guys or beaumont guys please feel free.

vote is 3-10 in favor of clip ons in houston for parking lot stunters. all active riders except buffalo rider
