The advice is relating to his comfort level.I'll use my 460 with a 24" bar and save my arms the workout.
I believe the OP said "keep the advice comming to prevent me from killing myself". Even if they ask "what would 'you' do". Rarely what I would do and what the person asking should do are the same.
It's like this:
"What would you do"?
" blah blah blah"...." Oh great...I'll give it a try"!. .."Easy tiger, I said that's what I would do". "OK then what should I do"?
"Open the wallet"!
