Currently on Pro Vibe carbons, 78.9 reach with around 130 ish drop, anything out there with less drop without going to super compact bars?

The only one I'm aware of is the 3T Ergonova with a 77mm reach and 123mm drop, but the tops are oval in shape.

Most (all?) of the FSA compact bars are 125mm drop, 80mm reach.

Thanks for posting chart...are these actual reach/drop dimensions or manufacturers claimed dimensions?

Manufacturers dimensions - would be a drag trying to get hold of everything and measure it accurately.
Some brands give outsides so I subtract 22.2 (I think Cinelli was one) to approximate the c-c.
haven't added Zipp CSLs yet.
Premetec open mould (as listed) is what Cannondale use for their C-series. And they make most of the big brands alloy bars.
And note that 3T Scatto will be no use on your road bike... but a great way to pimp your fixie.

Just realised you asked for less drop, don't know how I interpreted that as reach. This attachment sorted by drop

I quite like the shape of cinelli bars. The Vai palm is my favourite shape but its a bit heavy, the claimed weight is way of for the 42cm bar.

Is that something they only tell dealers and not their webmaster?
3T aren't really distributed here so I don't have a rep to ask.

i dont know. 3t go through a distributor here in the US, i dont know if it's just for the US market- it might be.
frankly, i find that 3t's website and reality are not always in the same dimension. kinda like most of their products-so close to being very good, but misses the mark.
