Make sure to get the one with one end angled:

The above one and this one below (for the 1% that the above cannot handle) are the only two ones I use:

Thanks everyone, I will order the 4" bar!

I also found a smaller 2" x 1.5" bar. Does anyone think this would be helpful?

I received my 4" x 1"x 0.625 bucking bar today and I was blown away what a difference this makes. Not only is it easier (and a lot more comfortable) to use but the quality of the shop heads is also improved. You get a satisfying feel of the rivet tail collapsing and forming the shop head.. I want to send my steel bars to the smelter now. Thanks everyone for the recommendation!

The 4" x 1"x 0.625 bar (referred to as the snickers bar) looks like it would work for most situations, but for $70 I just ordered another bar that is 2" x 1.5" x 0.625" (referred to at the brownie bar). I think the brownie bar will be better suited to get into rib flanges. Anyone else have one of these and if so, do you find it useful?

Default Angled face.

Angled face a must have! It allows bucking in restricted spaces.
This is the one I would recommend.

I have one like it. It use to be called the "ultimate bucking bar"

I've used this one for 99.99% of my bucking. Then I discovered that I can make any custom shape needed out of steel plate and c-clamp to the bucking bar for the really odd place. Now its my 100% bar. No need for any other bar.
