And my standing OHP is pretty decent too.
That's the funny thing about the Trap Bar; because of the way it's built, it allows the lifter to use a lot of low-back or very little low-back. Because the bar does not ride on the front of your legs, it is possible to retain a very upright posture and not recruit the low-back as much. Much will depend on what form you use when executing the lift.
