Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought a full cheek snaffle with keepers was meant to prevent the bit arching up and touching the palette.
Sorry, that's not the purpose of the keepers, this is a good article concerning full cheek bits and keepers: Full Cheek Snaffle With Bit Keepers
The keepers stabilize the bit, not prevent it from doing it's job which is to contact the roof of the mouth and to have a nutcracker affect on the horse's tongue.
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.
