I'm thinking I may order a pair from BUckaroo business so I can compare mine to theirs. Maybe mine are nice maybe I could see where I need to improve them. We'll see.

One more question for you Chickie, (sorry to hijack the thread)? In order for me to use this bit properly, can I attach a headstall to it with chicago screws or do I need a headstall like Wanstrom's with the metal clips?

I just like bit hangers because they look punchy as hell.

It looks better for sure, however, having more horsegear than most small tackstores, I am kinda wanting to use what I already have and not acquire more. Although.....nah, nevah mind!

You can use just a normal headstall, cut the ends off, punch a couple holes and screw the bit hangers on. Then you don't have to buy a whole new setup, just the hangers themselves :)

^^^ exactly.
Just as long as I don't see a headstall with tie-ends on that bit ;)
Look on E-Bay I have found some on there.

Nice chains. Nice bit, too.

Do any of you make the length of your chains to balance the bit to where the horse carries it's head when it is most balanced? Not just the head, the whole horse. I think some schooled riders call it "frame."

I've always taken pains to achieve that just right position. The last several years I've met people who don't give it a thought. It's probably just the way I was raised. But chains too heavy hangs the mouthpiece too vertical for some to carry naturally. Too light and the mouthpiece may lay back more than that horse needs. Of course, a super well made bit makes a difference, but I still like to adjust the chains for optimal carry.

I agree boots, that is why we like the ones you take and add the links so you balance accordingly.
