What head are you running on the 1070?
Pacific Trail in Oregon (?) claim to make top of the line bars but i havent used any yet. I did get a price from them today and they cost less than what I am paying for Oregon bars locally. I will probably try a couple unless anyone knows if they're not a good quality bar.

Iggesund Forest is the brand of bar I've got on my processor now.  I'll see how it does.  I bought it through Blockbuster.
