Carl.
I have read that with the trap bar the hands are in a stronger starting position where grip is concerned; for some reason the more "neutral" (??) grip is stronger than the overhand normal grip used with a barbell...but, I've read that and not had any experience with the bar, so couldn't say for sure. In theory, that would allow for bigger lifts.
