WHAT WE REALLY THINK
Not many people might remember, but Easton was the originator of the tapered bar design, making these bars some of the best in the category. The durability, finish, and overall fit push these bars to the top of our list. We haven’t had any issues with ours yet, and don’t see any coming up in the near future.
