*sigh* Another bit critique *sigh*

What do you all think about a bit similar to this one?

Coronet Twisted French Link Dee Bit - 5" Dee Ring Bits English HorseLoverZ.com

I would honestly like a better quality one than this, but this is literally the only one I can find with the french link AND the slow twist.

Basically I am looking for something with just a tiny bit of extra bite than just a french link. My horse tends to brace and pull a little and the twist keeps her accepting the bit, but not bracing.

I have very soft hands, so that is not an issue. In all honesty, they are probably too soft at times

I am open to other suggestions as well, I just like the concept of taking a very mild bit and adding just a very slight twist to it for a little extra to remind her not to run through it or brace.

Again, this is only at times, not all the time.

I have ridden her in a regular french link and she likes to brace a lot, and then I have also ridden her in a D-ring slow twist snaffle (no french link) and she was much better with this bit, but I think it may be a little too much for her. I don't want to her be scared of contact. I would like a happy medium.

Thanks!
