    T-bar, np contest. Unless you want carpal tunnel syndrome, then I'd say go with the pistol grips.

    I didnt put a vote in but I have run both systems. I do like the ease of the t-bar system but after running it for more than 2 hours or so, it just gets kinda tiring/boring. I have a pistol grip mower and its decent, not great but decent.

    We run them on Scag don't see any problem since you only use them on turns. Scag track really well so that helps the situation.

    Same here. I hated t-bar. ECS or pistol grips are my choice.
