I've been on a mission to find some bars to get the cockpit of my SB66 dialed in and I think these may just be the ones for the job. I've had them on for about 3 months which is plenty of time to get a feel for a bar. I love'em. They keep my weight over the bars on the climbs and I have plenty of room to get back off the seat when I point it down. I have a really comfortable angle when cornering and this was noticeable right out of the gate. All of a sudden I started closing the gap on my riding buddies in the corners. I like to lay my bike in to the turns and this bar keeps my sasquatch stable & in control. I feel confident to do any jump within the realm of XC/AM with these bars. I don't have any reason to believe they can't handle more abuse but I prefer my bars to be over-built. When you crash from a broken bar it is no bueno. I cut mine down to something like 765mm and it fits thru the trees better now. I'm 6'2" with average length arms and the full 780mm width was spreading me out a little bit too wide for my comfort and I didn't feel like I lost any significant amount of control or leverage when I shortened mine. If you're looking for a flat bar that's wide, but not stupid expensive, check this one out.
