Hi guy since everybody made bad things about my last post well I'm back I need to know which is better and stronger out of 4130 and 13 butted and which one should I buy

4130 is the type of tubing and butting is a technique used on it.....this question does not really make sense

4130 is a material. 4130 chromoly steel is what 99.9% of freestyle bars are made from. "Butting" is when the tubing changes thickness, either thicker or thinner. "13 butted" means the bar changes thickness at 13 points.

Butted and straight gauge bars can be equally strong, depending on how they are done. Most butted bars that are as strong or stronger than straight gauge bars are the same weight as straight gauge bars though.

Other things to look for are crossbar height (Higher is stronger up to a certain point, you want the top of the weld to be just below the start of the bend) and upper bend radius (Wider radius is stronger).

In my opinion, Odyssey/Sunday and S&M/Fit make the best bars.

Subtle trolling from an obvious troll is so obviously obvious its obviously an obvious troll trolling....or just a dumbass!
Can't decide.


Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.
