Thanks, trap bar's are awesome as your arms arm in a more natural position when lifting. I've given up the straight bar altogether. Feels much better on the lower back also.

I bought a cheap trap bar a few years ago.  I like it a lot, my only beef with it is that it's a bit too wide for me (as in the handles are too far apart).  My arms are out to the side more than I'm comfortable with, so when I go really heavy, I get a rather weird straining feeling in my lats.  As a result, I often stick with sets of 5, and rarely do work < 3 reps with it.

Another mile on the road to a 315lb bench, last single, worked up to a clean 275lb with no lifting of the ass off the bench!

Once you start repping that 275, 300 comes pretty quick, jump from 300 to 315 took me a long time though.
