Some HMs are quite thick, so make sure your horse has the mouth to accommodate them. I do not like the single joints; they seem to be able to pinch even worse than a regular metal bit. Some horses like the plastic, others do not; it does not encourage salivation, so if the horse is quite dry mouthed, it can be fairly uncomfortable to carry for the horse.
Denny seemed to like his loose ring french link though, I just made sure to use bit guards as the sides appear to be able to pinch easy.
