With all the expert opinions around you will always find someone to agree and disagree with your particular choice of bit.
The most important voice in all the shouting is that of your horse, if you can truly say that you have found something that suits both your horse and you, and gives you great communication in the softest possible way, then who cares what anyone else says. Just smile politely and say "It works for us"
Personally I like pelhams, I'm even enough of a philistine to like pelhams with a joiner so I can ride with one rein...........yes I know I lose finesse etc etc, but G Man and I get on OK with it.
Choosing a bit for dressage is a minefield, when I converted Mr G to English I started riding him in a French Link Eggbutt, only to find that while the French Link was OK up here, it had to be a loose ring not an Eggbutt, and he hated the loose ring, so does my mare
I ended up buying Myler snaffles for them which was better, but then had to change from my plain cavesson, to a flash noseband to try and get back to where we were.
