 I upgraded my bars from 680mm Voodoo bars to these and wouldn't ever return to smaller bars for what I ride. It is worth mentioning that if you intend to buy wider bars you ought to also get a shorter stem to optimize the handling, my stem is 40mm so very, very acute steering. The bars are nice and light and super strong, also come in some nice colour ways. The colours won me over as I originally planned to get Renthal FatBars but I have quite a specific colour scheme.

 I got the 1" rise bars, they are Awesome Bars, the colors look great. pros are the rise and back sweep are perfect, as everyone says. I cut them down to 760 and they still feel great! very very stong, i clipped a boulder on oldham trail in flagstaff and did a front flip into the ground and the bars are still straight with no scratches.

so far no cons.

 Using these bars currently on my DH bike. Nice width and bend. I wish Answer made a silver bar or a black bar with blue trim for my 2013 Glory.

Happy with these bars. I Recommend

 Best bar I have ever used on my downhill bike, provides fantastic control due the the width. Makes riding rough stuff at speed far easier!

 I have the 1/2 in. rise in gold. All i can say is that these bars look so sick! Low and wide, with a pretty low weight for a DH bar.

Answer 2011 ProTAPER 780 DH (MSRP $0) — The ProTAPER® 780 DH is everything a downhill bar needs to be – strong, wide, and low. It features ProTAPER® technology to put added strength in the clamp and rise sections without adding excess weight at the ends of the bar. Cutmarks make it easy to cut to your desired length.
