Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love the shape. My previous bar is a giant contact SL, variable radius, 70mm reach, 120mm drop. This bar had a longer reach but the same drop. I had my old bars rotated forward so the drops move back to an angle I like. This bar drop radius is already right where I want it without needing to rotate. On the old bar I compromised on the hood placement, no compromise here. I have extensively searched handlebar drop patterns, and this one has everything I personally want. I could do without the flare, but out on the road I don't notice it. My only complaint is that my 38cm bar is much more than the claimed 162g, mine weights in at 176, above their 4% variance. So for the $75 price difference, I paid more only to save only 10g over the claimed weight of the regular model instead of the 24g they claimed. I have no regrets however. They could also make the cable routing holes a little bigger, but I managed.
