Happy mouth vs Sweet iron

Hi guys, I was wondering can anybody tell me whether one of these are bettter than the other. I'm looking for a good snaffle to both start a colt in, but also to use on my mares. My Appy mare especially seems to HATE a bit. She will try everything in her power to avoid getting one put in her mouth and nce it's in she will chew it vigorously till you take it out again. If I don't put a noseband on, she will just open her mouth to evade the bit. Her teeth are fine.
She is currently ridden in a s\steel eggbut, nice and thick but not overly so.
Have tried rubber snaffles, loose ring snaffles, same reacion.
I;m seriously considering bitless.

I'm not fan of happy mouth frankly. I've seen it to be chewed through very fast. I'd rather go with the copper or sweet iron (I use copper-alike myself).
