Looking for input on these specialty bars for squats. Just for overall training advantages and saving shoulders and elbows, etc. If anyone has used them let me know your thoughts please.

I'm particularly interested in the Buffalo Bar like the one on top in the picture below. I might have an opportunity to pick one up for $150.





Also, the Cambered Squat Bar like the one below.

Have not had the chance to use a buffalo bar, I have read that they are great if you have shoulder problems. they do have the cambered bar at my gym, have used it a few times.
For me it shifts the weight from a normal squat to more of a quad dominate squat with less stress on my upper back

Cambered bar is epic. My shoulders and elbows feel 100% better since using it in my training

Rude is right, Buy them all.

My gym doesn't have any of them but Uni gym where I started working out had a safety bar they are a pretty cool variation.

I would love to use a belt squat machine and try the buffalo bar.
