Loose rings/eggbutt combination bit - can't find... :(

So I was wondering if someone can suggest something... I'm looking for something like this one Mikmar Bit Company So far only (somewhat) similar I could find was Stbben Golden Wings Snaffle Bit < Snaffle Bits|Dover Saddlery . (BTW, did anyone use it??), but it looks kinda odd to me.

That mikmar one looks good. Some Western bits have edges like that but tend to be single jointed snaffles. Why not just get the Mikmar?

See here, tiny: Rules on size of the rings I was thinking if I have to get another one (smaller rings), but doesn't look like I going to find what I want: there are some out there, but mouthpiece is not exactly the same.

Who'd a thought they'd make a rule about that! I bought a KK for my friends big Irish sport horse that I have had the pleasure of ridnging lately, but he doesn't seem to like it as much as I thought he would. He wants to come behind in more than he did in the D ring. H m m ....

KKs are very nice bits, but like with everything it depends on horse.

I tried like 10 bits on my qh, and Mikmar lorenzo eggbutt seems to be the only one she didn't show signs of unhappiness (she's very picky horse). So that was the main reason I decided to try one on paint (she can't go in D or eggbutt, because she "locks on bit", and looks like she gets pinching on lips from the plain loose rings). Oh, well, as I said, I'll rather risk lost points from the judge than the comfort of my horse.
