    Man, that's one bar I've never owned for whatever reason. I really need to pick one up one day. I was always a little jealous of your 3 Texas bar setup (DL, squat, and power, i think). :)

    I will say the U90 style models have a thicker urethane plate which would definitely be stronger. I believe all the urethane models have a pretty solid warranty IF you buy them new. The U50s have a...
