I myself have never used a trap bar, but was curious to know how stacks up against the straight bar for the deadlift. I know that supporters of the trap bar say that it puts less strain on the lower back.

IMO, it puts most of the stress on the quads instead of the Hams, glutes and lower back. I use both just to mix things up, but usually I just use the straight bar.
