    I have wrist trouble with narrow chins on a bar, so I made a strap with some innertube rubber inside it to keep it from sliding around, but loose enough of a loop to move it to the side when not using it. I guess a hammer pull bar could also be used here, but I like the rotating "W" bar, and really, really feel it in the biceps!

    Pretty cool

    Don't you have to worry about the W swiveling down and scraping your face when you go up ?

    Not at all. Remember that long thread on the MN boards where it was determined the best way to do pullups and chins? The chins were more effective if you'd lean back and pull to the chest. The nicest thing about the W bar is that it rotates along with the axis of the pull.
    Of course in the pic it's swiveled down like an 'M'.
