kick bar width of 16"

I'm playing around with the size (width) of my kickbar. In order to fit some of the other items I want in the footbay I will be reducing my kickbar down to 16" of foot space (inside to inside). That give me just about a shoulder width stance.

Anyone have any words of wisdom of why this would be an issue?

For my cat, the best move I made was widening my foot bar from 18" to full width (35"). Having my feet spread out is much more stable when being thrown around. Can focus more on the task at hand when I am not fighting to stay in my seat.

We are going with a 22" foot bar to make room for pinned in captains boxes. It is a trade off for sure. But, I tend to put one foot forward on the bar and one back when I am really digging in.

So is that 22" of horizontal space or is that a 22" kick bar that is made out of 2" tubing giving you 18" of horizontal space. That's more of a rhetorical question but some food for thought. I need to go and actually put my feet on a kickbar to see what that actually feels like.

22" is full width I think, so maybe 18 inches of flat space.

Hmmmm, yea. We're looking at 16" not including the radius (which may take some more away) so I'm a little concerned. I need to get my butt down to DRE and check it out before I commit to it.

I have the AAA foot bar/ cross bar combo. I wish I could remember the measurements, but I know I had mine made a bit smaller for my cat. I'm going to guess in the 16-18 range. I've been happy with it. Having the combo instead of the NRS regular foot bar has been great.
