Cut Bars for barspins

I have 28" Wide Bars 8.5 Rise with topload and I can barspin fine, but when it comes to 180 bars I find I really need to stretch my legs back and it makes it really uncomfortable to bar. I usually find myself hitting my knee or missing the bars completely because of it. I'm thinking of cutting my bars down to 27" would this be a good idea? I find I'm never really using the full 28" of the bars anyways.

Also I'm 6ft tall

If you think it will help then go for it!

Maybe try only cutting 1/4" of each side to start and see how that feels?

I went for it, cut off half an inch off both sides with a hack saw, threw some grips on and no more knee pain!
