I need this bit and soon!

I'm looking for a short shanked VERY low ported if not Mullen mouthed curb for my Morgan. It needs to be a 4.75" - 5" mouth.

I need to know any good websites, trusty brands and all that. I don't want to pay an arm and a leg and it doesn't have to be fancy or anything I just don't want something nasty. I don't even care if its used, as long as its in good condition.

I don't want to use ebay to find it.

Anyone? I'm having no luck. I heard Korsteel(spelling?) is a good brand for the price.

It looks nice, and I like its mullen mouth, what is it coated with though? It looks like its got that happy mouth stuff on it. I'm not sure if that would work for Solomon since he's a chomper and would tear though that like nothing.

it does look like the happy mouth stuff too.

I'll do some more searching.
Question, i know nothing about western and shanks, how many inches is considered short? I saw one with 8" shanks but that seems huge to me.

I do like that bit except its wheymouth and i'm not a fan of those. 8" shanks are very long, I'd like 7 at the very tops but something like 5 or 6 would be best.
jee i feel so picky lol

Abby, Korsteel has nice bits with good prices (way less than some other brands). I used Korsteel myself. I didn't quite get what kind of bit you are looking for (do you have any pic at all you can refer, please)? But doverssadlery.com and jeffersequine.com have LOTS of different bits, so you may check them out.

I guess what I'm really looking for is a grazing curb. Short shanked, low ported solid mouthpiece. The bad thing with most grazing bits is they have long shanks, which I'm not a fan of what-so-ever. I'm finding it impossible to find a short shanked grazing bit.
