    spider bar, anyone?

    I have an old cambered bar I'm going to transform into one of these, since I seem to be unable to get any kind of reasonable quote for a real one.
    Does anyone own one, I'd like an idea of the angle for the yoke. Worse case I can measure what's comfortable on my ssb and just use that.

    I have a Strengthshop one and my buddy has an EliteFTS; I'll see if I can get measurements for both when I get a chance.

    That would be great. More interrested in the efs one (I know it works...) but curious to see if they're the same.

    Waiting on the EliteFTS info, not sure when that will get back to me. My half-remembered high school geometry says my Strengthshop bar handles are at a 30 angle to the cambered part, and that matches what some free protractor app for my phone measured.

    I don't think the Strengthshop one feels as good as the EliteFTS and I really want to try them side-by-side (the Strengthshop seems to suffer a bit from wimpy pad problems similar to the Rogue SSB), but for the sub-$200 I paid to get it shipped to my door I'm OK with playing around with the padding a bit vs the $700 for the EliteFTS.

    Well 30deg is exactly what I ballparked when looking at videos/photos. So that would make sense. Thanks alot, repped.
    And, yes, if I go through with this I was planning on making the pads very stiff.

    I'd be curious what Edge Fitness spec's are on his Spider Bar, I like the looks of his.

    Also curious how long you plan on making the handles? The ones on the Edge and EliteFTS seem way to long to me, but I assume they may have to be a bit longer with the camber, anyway, curious to hear what you're planning for handle length?

    10", like the crepinsek. Then I'll add on whatever length I need (removable handle) but there's no way to know before trying it.
