Full cheek, Dee, or Eggbutt?

Which type of bit to choose? Which do you think would be best for Blu? I am browsing DoverSaddlery and trying to decide. Thanks!

Edit: I like the following...

Dee

Eggbutt

What do you think?

Blu, I really don't want to sound weird.. but if you're already looking to spend $30 on a bit, maybe you might consider waiting, and saving up another $50 for a Myler bit? I have done quite a bit of reading on them, and I'm almost 99% sure I'll be saving my nickles and pennies to buy one... It's just a suggestion. Otherwise I think I like the D-Ring best.

I have $200 hundred saved up and I am trying to decide whether I would like to use some of it on a bit or for something else? Hmmm...

I think the Myler bits are worth every penny you spend on them... but that's just me... and I haven't even used on yet - I've just been doing a ton of research on them..

I have a myler bit and love it. I spent the $20-$30 on a bit and it just never worked out. Vega would never listen to me, would run right through it, and it just turned into an ugly battle any time I got on her. I did quite a bit of research on the bits, and then quite a bit fore to decide which bit would suit her best.
I liked the design of it, how it's curved to go with the horse's mouth, and how there are 3 parts so it eliminated the nutcracker action.
Since i've used it with her, she's been a lot better. She does listen to me, and getting her to bend and lift up her shoulders have been so nice. And while she does gape a bit, its just mostly because she's not used to the bit. But i'm working on that with the pessoa system I have.
This is the one I have: http://www.toklat.com/dyn_prod.php?p=89-29045&k=88111

I got the low port because the other bits I have have no tongue relief and thought that was something she needed. Boy was I right. And it also looks very nice on her.
Another thing it has is copper inlay which helps with acceptance and softening.

If you have $200, i'd spend $80 on a really good bit.
Here's the Myler website for more information

from the looks of it, it appears that that one doesn't have the port. Mine has a low port for some tongue relief.

I don't know much about the Eggbutt or Dee, but I do use a Full Cheek. The major different between it and the others is the Full Cheeks adds outside lip pressure when turning. For me, it also prevents my ADD horse from gnawing his bridle. : P

I also go with JDI on the D-Ring. ;) I've also heard good things about Myler bits. If it's better for the money, then I'd get that.
