You either love them or hate them. I've never personally used one, but they look so.. harsh.. Not necesary, IMO.

Scare the bajeebers out of me. They are thick, clunky, and can pinch quite terribly on the jointed ones. Not a wonder why all the horses in the demo video have their heads tucked; that port is huuuge!!

Those are only two bits out of a long list of exceptionally evil looking bits in their product line.

Honestly, I think if you need that kind of bit (referring to the rest of their bits not the two simple snaffles) then you really ought to go back to basics with the horse and start over.

Their video is excellent, their marketing is very very good, but when you actually see one of their bits in person, you go "huh?"

KV, when I think Mikmar, I think Mikmar Bit Company

Yes that was my understanding that everyone talking about "Mikmar Bits" talks about those huge strange-looking ones. So I was very surprised to see really nice standard bits in Dover. So I am trying to be fair to them saying they do have nice bits too! Lol!
