Default New breaker bar

Hey fellas, I'm looking for a new breaker bar, 3/4". Recommendations?
The one I had an hour ago was just a MIT special, 18" handle. Obviously, not a prime tool. I tightened two nuts, and it quit.

I know snapon, but if I go that route, I may as well buy the sockets to go with it.
I'd rather buy just a midline bar, and push off the big purchase for a while. I'm not sure I can justify the price of the real tool, since it only gets used a couple times a year, maybe.

Like you said snap on. I have all snap on and Mac tools but I’ll be honest I have a lot of 3/4 inch harbor freight impact sockets, breaker bar and jumbo wrenches for the farm and never had an issue. Proto is another brand I’ve had good luck with when it comes to the 3/4 and 1 in stuff.

In 3/4” breaker bars, I have snap on, sk, Proto, challenger, Blackhawk, and an easco. They’re all good, but I prefer the sk. It seems more ergonomic in my opinion.
