    I think that is/was used by steer ropers to avoid getting their rope caught in the bit.

    I got a chance to look at those bits this morning....there was one I kinda liked, but the spoon for the spade and the sway bars ripped out of it and he wants $165..sheesh,lol!

    The first guy I ever worked for in high school starting colts had a shed of milk crates full of bits like those....some of them worth a little, some North and Judds, Globes, Buermann, Crocketts and most of them not marked and weren't worth the scrap. A lot of crazy homemade contraptions too. Natisha is right about the bit above, you could rope without getting your rope hung up in your shanks, never used one, but like I said I remember seeing them in the milk crates.

    I loved looking through them, he gave me an old Crockett and a Globe. It meant so much to me I never traded them off and I still have them. The bits that my husband and I collect and trade are more of the Mexican/Vaquero style bits. Garcias, Flemmings, Grijalvas. I didn't get too much in the Crocketts and Buermanns, I have noticed living in Texas they are very popular down here. There is usually one or two at a tack sale and everyone jumps all over it, but if I were to take one home someone would offer me a broken curb strap in trade for it...lol

    Good find Bubba, I put him in my saved sellers, you just never know what he might come up with that I can't live without!

    Yes, in my opinion, that seller has pretty common bits at VERY uncommon (high) prices!
