I personally favor a french link (or any double-jointed bit, I.e. Dr Bristols, bean mouth, oval mouth, etc) over a plain single joint any day. They use more tongue pressure, and do not have the cracker-jack action that snaffles have. They also can't hinge and hit the palate, which snaffles often do.
I will recommend a double-jointed bit over a snaffle most times, unless the horse has a known problem with tongue pressure.
