Anyone used a myler calvary s - shank hackamore?

Has anyone used the Myler Calvary s - shank hackmore?
How does it compare to a mechanical hackamore? Thanks!

Is this the one you mean?

I see they also make a double-rein version. That's cool.

These have less severe shanks than a regular mechanical hackamore, as they are slightly shorter and also curved back. The noseband is less severe than a rope (less abrasive), but the solid-covered bikechain still gives a strong feel. The leather curb is a nice replacement for the chain, making it gentler on the horse and removing the "shanking" ability that is so awful about regular mechanical hacks--you can't grab and jerk a horse with it. Other than the above, it is just a well-balanced mechanical hackamore.

When looking for a hack for my new mare, I looked at quite a few but ended up with a "little s hack". I liked the design and the fact that it is comparatively mild.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Yes, mine looks exactly like that. I thought it would be less severe than the mechanical and am hoping my horse will respond to it. Thank you.
