Multigrip/swiss bar vs straight bar benching

Is multigrip bar healthier for your body vs. benching with a straight bar? Bought a Elitefts already out of implus. Don't want to have buyer remorse. I like the cambered part though, but seems like the overextension might be bad for shoulders.

Ok, I'm getting a set of fixed dumbbells. However: In all of the gyms I've worked out in during my life, the handles on the dumbbells have been straight. It's a natural grip for me, or at least the one I'm most used to. All the way up to the 115's, I've never had a problem with them. So...
