Help with bars - Santee

I, like so many others, are trying to find the right bars. On my SG I had Wild 1 12.5" Chubbys and they were OK but I should have went with 14" and the wrist angle bother my right wrist. So now I'm looking for bars for my new RG and I'm looking at 14" bars to start off with. My first choice were the Outlawz but I've been reading about the Santee and the price is definitely right on the Santee. I just can't seem to find any dimension on them besides center width and height. No pullback or wrist angle. I also can't seem to find the Santee sight so I'm guessing there isn't one or the name is way different. Any help finding out these sizes or recommendations on bars would be helpful.

I've never been able to find a Santees website either but they're in the Custom Chrome catalog. No wrist angle info but pullback is 11in for all heights of the standard ape hangers. Guessing, I'd say wrist angle is around 30º or so on my 11inch bars.

The wrist angle is a little more extreme on the Santees than the outlaws. I have the outlaws and they were worth every penny.

I do like the wrist angle on the Outlaws. At least on paper.

Thanks Brent.
