The Subrosa High Life in bronze.

50mm reach and 36mm rise
I think it will look nice against the black parts and compliment the seat and grips.Photo

If I dislike this stem I have one more option, the Odyssey Boss stem with 52mm Reach and 35mm rise. Photo

I tried my primo aneyalator v2 with 51mm reach and 25mm rise and it just feels too short. I like the slightly slower turning response but i just felt too hunched over.Photo

I actually heavily considered the new Odyssey Summit stem as I kept coming to the conclusion I loved how my bars felt (Highway bars) but wanted about a half inch of extra rise. Photo (photo credit: Brian91)
The Summit stem is 48mm reach and 45mm rise so if you think about it, not only would it feel twitchy but it would bring the bars even closer to your body since a headube angles like a downward slope.

I also saw this video Odyssey posted to introduce the stem. The guy is super good, Spencer has him in a few videos but he looks like hes fighting the stem and he's taller than me, so that pretty much told me It would feel super weird for my height/setup.

Damn. Alot of effort seems to have been put into this lol

Good job though! It's cool to actually see someone else who cares this much about their bike parts and not buying what's trendy...

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Does it count if you buy something that's trendy without knowing it's trendy? Just asking for a friend...

Nah but for real it's good there are riders that buy their parts based on something else than just what others have. I try to be one of them as often as I can

I saw that one as well but decided on the subrosa because of the extra mm rise and the color really caught my eye.

If I could go a tenth as high as Larry Edgar goes, then I would still be blasting super high.

That's a sweet colour. I'm going to order a Saltplus Manta in a bit and I think I'm going to go for the gold acid dip or whatever it's called. Not bronze but close. I was thinking a little gold on the stem and a gold hardware kit, maybe a gold chain would look pretty sweet.
