The S3 "Buffalo Bars" have some serious upsweep. I tried a set on my '14 GG because I was chasing taller bars, which they are at the ends, but I just didn't like the exaggerated upsweep angle they used to achieve this, for me the std flatter Renthal fatbars mounted on S3 adjustable clamps worked a treat because they lifted the bars 10-13mm and gave me heaps of forward/back adjust-ability. It's possible the Buffalo Bar is what you're seeking for your cactus wrists?

I wonder if you could put your original bars in a vice. put a scaffold bar on the end and put a bit more bend/upsweep on them?

I haven't tried this myself, so I don't know if it would work.

No, don't even consider it.

that's a different issue then I thought.  

You might look looking at MX bars as they have a different sweep in them than trials bars.  Can't say they will work but worth an online search I bet.
