Do you ever do barbell pullovers?

I never much cared for them, but did a lot of straight arm pulldowns. Really like pullover machines though. But tried pullovers with a barbell again this year and they seem to be working well. Guess I found the right ROM. I think in the past I was trying too hard on them.
