I have never ridden in a french link (or lozenge?). I'm not really familiar with english bits.
I have used a handful of Mylers though and I like them.
I guess I just wanted to mention that they function differently. The Myler doesn't collapse as much as the french link. It collapses to a certain point and then stops. The Myler completely pivots around it's center barrel piece. The french link (I assume) will collapse more.
I don't think you have super good brakes with the Myler pictured. But I have never ridden in a french link, so I don't know if it is any milder or more severe compared to the Myler. But they aren't exactly the same bit in function even though they look the same in the photos.
I can't make a recommendation as I have not tried both bits. I would like to though.
