Need A New Stem

Right I've just been out down the road for a quick bod and I've come to realise that I need a new stem. When I was half pedalling onto some bathtubs at the farm the other day when I pulled back on the bars I found the bars slipping back, I tightened them up and thought nothing of it but just been jumping onto a tree stump which is a bit bigger and they were doing it again.

The problem I have is my bars are old Azonic world force ones (9 years old) and all the trials stems are now oversized so if I get a stem I'll need some new bars as well which means big expense. So do I either get a normal MTB stem to match my bar size or splash out on new bars and stem?

If I do that I'll probably go for a Trialtech Sport Forged stem but not sure which bars as really need to keep the costs down, any suggestions??

The new Tensile bars are super good value for money (Y) I reckon it'd be worth upgrading to 31.8mm, simply 'cos you don't really know how long those Azonics are going to last for. If you snap them a week after getting a new stem for them, it'd be a bit sour...

May be sorted now as theres a trialtech sport forged stem in for sale section that I'm hopefully gonna get an Muels got a set off Zoo bars for sale so if they're 31.8mm ones (this oversized thing is new to me!) I could have fixed the problem at a bargain price!

Plan was to rub it down and respray it but numpty boy here forgot to take a before pic, got one after I rubbed it down with some fine wet and dry and after spraying so gonna get it lacquered at work tonight and will post pics of how she's turned out.

For a first time doin summat like this I think I've done a good job!
