Some horses love a plain snaffle, some hate it and perfer a french link snaffle. Where I ride, each horse has a different bit and most of them are VERY different. Doc (my lesson horse) goes in a Junior Cowhorse bit with a copper roller, but Dee goes in a thicker, slow twisted snaffle combination bit with a rawhide noseband. Dolly rides in a low ported curb, and so on. And they all ride well, and are extremely happy horses.
I'm not against a twisted wire bit, but I wouldn't put it on my own horse. Especially a double. As someone mentioned above, it's very unclear, with multiple points of contact. It completley kills any finesse.
Honestly, I'd change your bit. If your horse rides in a plain snaffle, why upgrad? The only reason I see to change bits if for more finesse, not more strength.
