We have pretty much all Myler bits for our horses. I've had less expensive bits start falling apart but I have one Myler I have used for years and its the same as the day I bought it. Trust me its gotten tons of use. I just got a comfort snaffle this summer for transitioning my filly to a solid mouthed curb bit which is what we finish in. I really like the action of the comfort snaffle since it doesn't have the true break of a regular snaffle.
All that aside, I think they are worth the money. They hold their value in resale and will last a lifetime.

I organised a bitting clinic a few years ago with a Myler bit specialist and tried my TB in a couple of Myler Bits - however they didnt work for him at all - I went back to my KK Ultra B Ring - I love the KK Ultra bits - expensive but worth it imho :)

If your horse goes well in one, then yes. If your horse goes well in a regular bit, then no.

I had one horse who needed a myler. My others don't. They are a great idea, but there is no point in forking out so much money for a bit you don't need.
