I have the WO 14 chubbys. They are a good bar and WO has good customer service. If I had it to do over again, and still might, I would do the carlinis because I like the style better.

I hear Carlini bars are great. I've had two WW chubby chrome bars and a black set and all have been great. Looks like you win either way.

Wild 1s are great bars, they just don't have the style like the others. But as for riding comfort, I would have to pick Wild 1s.

I have the WO502s and couldnt be happier. Like someone mentioned before, they arent the most fashionable bars out there but they are comfortable for me

Just put on the Chubby W0502's and really like them. They put me in a really relaxed riding position.

Got rid of the Monkey bars and went with the 12" flying apes (needed more pullback), I can assure you these are top notch bars...

My buddy has Carlini's on his Road King and LOVES them. I've got the WO 14" and they fit me perfectly. With that said, there is something about the styling of the Carlini's that really grabs my attention. I went with the WO's based on price and prior experience tho.
