Need handlebar advice

I need some advice on new handle bars since i ran into a tree and folded mine up on my 08 700xx this past weekend. ive been looking at some of the different brands but dont know which to avoid or which style/taper/rise to get. I'm only 5'7" so I think an MX style might be nice and ive got a bad wrist from a motorcycle wreck years ago that keeps my right wrist from moving left to right so i think a less aggressive taper might help me out with the bars having less rake. I ride mostly trails but do hit the dunes a few times a year if that makes a difference. any input or exirience is appreciated since ive never bought aftermarket bars for anything.

I'd defiantly upgrade to 1 1/8" bars. The Pro Taper brand bars are nice.

I run 1 1/8 Renthal fat bars with a precision shock and vibe clamp. It's the alternative to flexxbars.. I hated the setup at first but after getting used to it now I hate everything else.. The Pro Tapor Raptor bend is nice but I ride over the bars 50% of the time so the sweep is too far back for me.
